Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

I am not able to access education, politics, and religion so am posting here. Bill Black is a fired former bank regulator. I have been reading his stuff for years and he makes sense to me. You will get no surprise in his assessment of Sanders and Clinton. Be ready for a jolt!

By the way, I would not vote for Hillary because she didn't know or didn't choose to reign in Bill on economic reform when she had the pillow-talk position. Maybe she couldn't reign in the old cock, but there are some things she could have done if she disagreed with him.

Thanks Bert, I was wondering about that aspect.  That pretty much covers it.

Looks like another windy day over northern Europe.

Donald, I'm just reading your book. Not only would all the food for the animals on the ark have been problematic, but as Grinning Cat's pointed out earlier, all the poop would have been a bit of a problem as well. Oh, wait, they compacted it and turned it into the original Bible.

Well Noah got screwed because Utnapishtim and his wife got immortality.  Noah only got 950 years.

Most Xtians and Jews take the Gilgamesh flood as proof of the Noah story, just in a distorted version.

A bit late, but yes, Joan, it has been windy the last few days. Bridges have been closed and the west coast has had a few problems; a supply tender for the oil rigs has turned turtle and might leak diesel. Otherwise we're unscathed.

Why won't God stop the spread of Zita virus?

I know, they didn't work for me either.   LOL  I was just trying to point out a way to spread the word, and get to people who have no idea of what's out there. 

If we leave a paper on a café table that says, "google Utnapishtim" someone will google it.

And better yet, if we leave a paper on the table with all those googles listed below, we might reach a few people, and they will spread the word to their friends.  Especially the young ones.

If everyone on AN did this around the world, think of the impact!!

And we could add other google sights as we think of them.
