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

Bertold, I really like the original Blade Runner and have been looking forward to seeing "2049."  I've heard good things about it, including that it successfully recreates the dark mood of the original.  I guess I'm glad that they opted to continue with a new storyline off of the original premise, rather than making an out-and-out remake.

I went to see "Blade Runner 2049" last night. Great cinematography and artistic design, good acting, but disappointing story. Didn't stand up well to the original. Seemed like its main purpose was to set up sequels.

Terrorism-related charges are pending against a man accused of stabbing a police officer and deliberately plowing a cube van into pedestrians in Edmonton on Saturday night, the RCMP says.

Pets are wonderful doctors.

Thanks everyone.

It will be interesting to see if Rick gets his call for his defibrillator/pacemaker replacement at the same time. He has to go south to Victoria, while I have to go north to Prince George for mine. His date hasn't yet been set but his pre-op is the 5th, so its quite possible.

Voting no for school upgrades???? What do they want.....someone to get hurt or killed first?

Yeah, I do a lot of the copy & reload things, but its a nuisance.

Have a successful operation, Patrica.

Randall, I get upset when schools are underfunded.  It's such a easy, no-brainer investment for the future of everyone in the community.  Hope you enjoyed your time in the limelight in 2nd grade.  BTW, yesterday was also National Coffee Day.

I hope your operation goes well, Patricia. One of my family in England had his done one at a time with a couple of weeks in between and that worked out fine. He did walk lopsided in the interval and had to use a walking stick but there were no serious problems.

Yes, AN notifications can be very slow. Perhaps the rest of the IT world has moved on a little faster.

Agreed, GC.  It can take up to 40+ seconds for something to post when the system is badly lagged.  Clicking twice might result in a double-post, so that's something to be aware of while this is going on.

Comment by Grinning Cat on September 30, 2017 at 9:38am

(And it's still working that way: I clicked "Add Comment" and it sat there, but after copying my comment to the clipboard (just in case) and reloading the page, my comment did get posted.)

Comment by Grinning Cat on September 30, 2017 at 9:37am

At my end, the "Add Comment", "Add Reply", etc. buttons seem to be working silently. If A|N hangs after you post something, check in another tab or window -- the posting might have succeeded.
