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

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

Glad you found a good solution, Randy.

Welcome, Jonathan. Nice to have you here.

I've been using the mild Autumn weather for good things. Running in the woods and (when I've found the good spots) going back and picking blackberries. Now have plenty frozen ready for the Winter.

Happy weekend, everyone. 

Yes, Randy, it's been pretty gloomy and chilly lately.  My apartment temperature is down to 64-degrees, but I haven't turned on the heat.  It's not unbearably cold yet.  It's kind of nice to lounge around in my flannel pants and a sweatshirt.  I'm rehearsing my winter coziness.  

Hey, Jonathan.  You're a new face here.  Welcome!  Nice to have you with us.

I also still have to decide where to put my mom's ashes. I have very mixed feelings about her, but I promised I would wait at least a couple of years before deciding anything, otherwise they might have ended up flushed down the toilet. I am glad you don't seem to have any mixed or negative feelings, but that's total BS that the cemetery wanted to charge that much when - esp. when you'd be doing the work yourself.

Gee, where is everybody? It's been a week. 

It's another gloomy Autumn day here in Indiana. Fitting for spreading my father's ashes around the farm and at my parent's headstone. I wanted to simply dig a hole there and deposit the container of ashes. But can you believe the cemetery charges a thousand bucks to do it?! No different than the cost of a regular burial.

Loren, I love "Corner Pocket"! One of my faves.

Joan, interesting info.

Geez, I've never heard that song before (Anytime, Anyday, Anywhere.)  Nice!  Thanks, Joan.

You guys catch my memory with those old songs. Big bands, great musicians, beautiful scores and lyrics. Lots of memories, i.e. dads gone to war, most moms working outside the home. The new sort of demand for child care, with grandparents and great-grandparents taking on that task. Food rationing, no fats or sugars. Women were learning how to drive. 

How Much things cost in 1943 Average Cost of new house $3,600.00 Average wages per year $2,000.00 Cost of a gallon of Gas15 cents Average Cost for house rent $40.00 per month Bottle Coca Cola 5 cents Average Price for a new car $900.00

So long as we seem to be on a big band kick, here's my fave cut from a Direct-to-Disc performance done by Harry James and his Orchestra: Corner Pocket.

Randy, the Stan Kenton Orchestra played at one of my parents' high school dances in the 1950's. Imagine that!
