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

Chris, I'm interested in your opinion. I'll take any help (life experience) l can find.
I always wish I had paid more attention to my older relatives. I'm not implying you are older ;)

I looked at the path of 2017 eclipse and it seems like we'll have close to 100% totality.
Comment by kathy: ky on March 19, 2015 at 6:27pm
Pat, the eclipse will be that close to you it won't be a couple hundred miles from me. The first one my gdaughters will see and only a second one for me.
I hope Carl is comfortable. Surgeries are painful. At leastall of mine were.

The August 21, 2017 eclipse will be close to total where I live.  Probably 50 to 100 miles south to see a total one.

Chris, that would be fun! Hebrides it is. 

Hebrides

I'm going to wait for the August 21, 2017 eclipse over Carbondale, Illinois, USA. It will be 20 miles from my office.
Comment by Plinius on March 19, 2015 at 1:30pm

Is anyone off to the Hebrides to see the eclipse?

Comment by Plinius on March 19, 2015 at 1:30pm

And I'll try to see it, but the forecast was cloudy.

Don't worry Joan, I'm not depressed. I get a diet of painkillers and something for creaky joints. When I said nobody wants my opinion, I meant life - life never bothers with what it does to you. I've told myself a long time that I would be running to catch a tram etc. and today I did a realitycheck - ok, no more running. But I can read, write, talk to people and cats, do a bit of mini gardening -what else could I wish for? ;-)

Very few people will see a total eclipse of the sun tomorrow.  Chris will see 85%
