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

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

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

Is that the prequel to the TV series Smallville?

Insecure in life, insecure on stage. Poor Don. Did you ever see him in the movie, Pleasantville? A great movie, by the way.

For those of you who grew up with The Andy Griffith Show or watched the antics between Steve Allen and Don Knotts, this vignette, courtesy of delanceyplace.com, will doubtless come as something of a shock.  It sure did to me.

Wonderful video, Loren!  Lots of fun.  I elected to take a jazz dance class in college for the sole reason to get out of having to participate in marching band.  Believe me, I am NO dancer!  But it was fun.

Best wishes to you and your man, Ruth.  All the best.

Hope all goes well for you and hubby, Ruth.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrHxhQPOO2c

And hope your sister feels better soon, Carl. The pain meds will hopefully only be for a short while.

Those aren't my roses, k.h. ky, they grow by our gym parking lot. I had roses years ago and gave up due to Japanese beetles. They no only ate every petal, year after year, I couldn't even save the roses by putting netting bags over them. The little buggers ate up our roses by sticking their mouthparts through the tiny holes in the netting. That was the last straw.

Sorry to hear that your sister is having a hard time after helping you out, Flying Atheist. <sigh> Life isn't fair. I'm happy you're doing well.

Fun-filled  dance remix, Loren. This is a different universe of visual images that what I imagined when I hear the same song on the gym loudspeaker today. LOL Much more imaginative. Thanks!

I may not be around much the next 4 or 5 days. Hubby needs me to drive him for cataract surgery tomorrow and thereafter for follow up visits. This is the last time around. We'll both have artificial lenses in both eyes by noon tomorrow.

Oh, how I wish I could dance! Both Frank Sinatra and Debbie Reynolds (for two) had to work very hard to learn to dance. Strangely, some people never learn how to dance, no matter how musically talented they are--Andre Previn, for example (and me). Fun to watch, Loren.

Carl,does your sister eat before taking the medicine? Sometimes it helps or so I've heard. I personally have problems with almost all meds.
I'm pleased you are doing so well and give your sister a giant hug from me when she's up to it. I come from a family of huggers.
