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

Felaine, 7 years of California life (Pomona) was enough for me. Indiana is no "garden spot", but it beats the peewadden out of Cal.

I'll see what post.nl will ship, Felaine!

PLEASE send all your unseasonable chilly weather and rain to California!  We haven't had winter yet, not even in the Sierra Mountains...

I would move out of the state if I could afford to...and Nestle' is still sucking water our of the deep aquifers so they can bottle it (in PLASTIC!) and sell it at ridiculous prices to the yuppies and their offspring.   Gaaaahhhhh!

And the same in Denmark. Everybody is impatient, waiting for Summer to turn up. Everything is green though, which is very nice.

Same conditions here, Chris. It's been unseasonably chilly. Lots of rain, wind and low temperatures. Just the other night I remarked that it felt like November outside, as the temperature was 45F/7C.

2nd of June, high wind and rain, temperature dropping and everything flowers. I put on a thick coat today - autumn starts early this year!

Thanks, Randall. I could use a good week.

We left our skylight open last night, and it rained.

I agree about the governor taking his own advice.

Good luck next year at Kilimanjaro, Ian.

Randall's right on about your humor, Sk8eycat. Thanks for the cat-cane story. I hope you heal quickly.

Hugs to all, Ruth

Felaine, as you know, life's a bitch. And getting old is even bitchier. Despite your health issues, your sense of humor is 100% pure. Your way with words is great!

Everybody else, hope you have a good week.
Comment by Idaho Spud on June 1, 2015 at 7:27am

Chris, I didn't think of that, but after you mentioned it, I hope the governor took his own advice also.

Comment by Ian Mason on June 1, 2015 at 5:24am

There's many a slip 'tween cup and lip, etc. etc. But I've just put my name down for the local gym's annual outing in Jan. next year. Kilimanjaro, one of the world's toughest hill walks. A case of middle-age panic, I think. Do it before it's to late. There's a lot of things I didn't do when I was younger due to anxiety and alcohol so I have to make up for them now.
