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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Donald R Barbera Sep 27. 5 Replies

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

10 Things About Patriotism (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Plinius Sep 26. 2 Replies

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

The Democratic debate (what I saw of it [channel surfing!]) was a total breath of fresh air by comparison with the BS session which was the GOP version.  You'd think the Republicans would learn ... but then, aren't they the ones who oppose teaching critical thinking skills?

I'm a horrible Chicagoan.  I watched the Democratic debate instead of the Cubs game. Blasphemous!  I'm lucky I haven't been tarred, feathered and run out of town.

Ruth, your new profile photo is lovely. You look beautiful. your white hair looks golden in this image and complements your facial structure. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 14, 2015 at 10:16pm

I missed the Democratic debate. Changed my voter registration from Green To Democratic just to vote for Bernie in the primary. For me there's no debate on which candidate to support. Good to hear they took climate change seriously.

Happy rails to you Randy.  I'm just a little jealous.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 13, 2015 at 11:12pm

Ian, what a wonderful way to spend the day.  Snuggled up with a fun book.

Ruth, I just finished watching the Democratic presidential debate.  At least the reality of climate change is viewed as a serious matter.  How we will react and to what degree is another issue.  Such a far contrast to the Republicans.

I'm just getting ready to start a new book.  "Flapper: A Madcap Story of Sex, Style, Celebrity, and the Women Who Made America Modern" by Joshua Zeitz.

I've started reading Climate Change, Capitalism, and Corporations, not exactly a curl-up-with book. Enjoy your pun-filled mystery, Ian.

A three-day train ride. Hope it's nice weather and great scenery, Randall, and your family visit is great.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 13, 2015 at 11:15am

Randy, have a great trip and visit.  I've always wanted to take a cross-country train ride.  Perhaps one of these days.

Comment by Plinius on October 13, 2015 at 9:29am

Looks very nice, Ian! 

Comment by Ian Mason on October 13, 2015 at 6:12am

It's a grey, cold and windy day so I'm going to enjoy a good book. In this case, "The Big Over Easy" by Jasper Fforde. It's Easter in Reading and Humpty Dumpty has been murdered. A hard case to crack for DI Jack Spratt and DS Mary Mary. They'll need help from SOCOs Baker and Kandelstykmaeker. 
If you love puns and wordplay, this is one for you.
