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.

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

The latest news on California's fires this evening was not good. I hope Chris has decided to get out.

Thanks Patricia, I had missed that program!

Any news of Chris?

We're ok Joan. Just getting a bit nervous about the hip replacement on the 27th.

Rick's implant replacement is postponed until the alarms sound, & the cardiologist thinks it may be 3 months or so. At least that gives me some recovery time before his turn.

That's great, Patricia. Thank you.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 9, 2017 at 6:13pm

Thinking of you Patricia & Rick. I hope all is going well.

Stay safe, Chris. Leave if you have to.

Comment by Patricia on October 9, 2017 at 1:25pm

Been there done that, not fun. Be safe!

Comment by Grinning Cat on October 9, 2017 at 1:14pm

Chris, a big part of the denial is the desire to hold on to axioms like "the free market will solve all problems", "profit is always good", and "regulations are bad" without cognitive dissonance.

I hope you and other people living there will be OK!
