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.

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'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

And they even call it FREEway!

In Chicago, the best way to get around town is on the train, what we call the "L".  Several lines ride down the center of the expressways.

Ian, after looking at that photo of the freeway in Los Angeles, I got a little suspicious of its authenticity and did a little internet sleuthing. 

My first discovery was that the photo was used in several stories that this was a large traffic jam in China and that it took three days to clear up as noted here: 3quarksdailylongest traffic jam ever.

Then I came upon the smoking gun.  An article with both the original photo and the Photoshopped version here:  Bricoleurbanism

The Freeway is the famous California Interstate 405.  In the article, move your mouse over the photo see the before and after.

Kathy, the abstinence only is working out for her about as well as the virgin Mary. Oh, right. Every time her and Joseph had sex, and she yelled "Oh God," he always felt inadequate.

Palin's oldest has "revealed" the name of her second (out of wedlock) baby daddy.
So, how's that abstinence only thing working out for her!

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 14, 2015 at 3:05pm

Yikes!  That Los Angeles freeway is astounding!  And I thought the Bay Area around San Fransisco was bad when I lived there.
