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

Have I been kicked out of AN?  I haven't been able to post anything today, and I'm getting ready to call for an ambulance to take me to the horsepissed-all.  I can't walk (even with a walker), and the pain has become unbearable.  If this post works, I'll let you know what happens whenever I can (I don't have anything like a smartPhone, so I'll be  out of touch for a while.

Joan, your mentioning of Diamond Lake reminds me of all the 4ths spent watching fireworks at my grandparents cottage on DIAMOND LAKE(!) in southern Michigan. Wonderful memories--swimming, fishing, boating, sunning, eating, etc.  It just occured to me that my own adult children have never heard about those glorious days, at least not from me. They know little about my childhood--never asked.

Chris, Laura's home is 50.1 miles north from my home, farther into the mountains and a higher elevation. It is a lovely rural area with lots of wild animals that present a risk for small domestic animals. The larger animals seem to survive OK. There have been bear and cougar sightings in this forest area although we have seen no signs of either one this summer. 

Deer have a routine path past my bedroom windows and I occasionally see them. They move so quietly, I only notice them when I see movement in the forest. Skunks and raccoons visit us regularly. Wild turkeys come by every day or so, with young chicks getting bigger each day.

Oops, I got the timing off. They all ate here and then went to the fireworks whil I went to bed

Loren, thanks for fireworks displays; yours is as close as I got to one. I don't enjoy crowds, especially when it is hot. My granddaughters and their families went to Diamond Lake where they have a community display and many people around the lake shoot off their own. Our little Brookyn, almost one year old, jumped at the sounds and smiled at the sights. They all came back to Laura's place where Larry smoked a brisket for 23 hours in his smoker. Everyone contributed and we had a splendid meal. Such good cooks in the family. I pooped out about 9 PM and the party continued until 1 AM.

Is Laura's house far from your old house, Joan?
