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

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

Jerry Lewis was good in "My Friend Irma."  Period.  At least I thought so at the time.   I was 9 years old.....

Joan, thanks for sharing that clip!

There's a discussion in "How To Do It!" about embedding videos, with instructions on specifying start and stop times if you want to highlight just one section.

Carol Burnett was funny, AND she had a great supporting cast, and didn't hog all the laughs for herself.

Did you ever see the mini-series she did for CBS...."Fresno"?  A spoof of "Dynasty" and other prime time soaps  It kinda flopped, but I thought it was hilarious.

The whole thing is on YouTube somewhere.  I thought it was a riot because I've driven through Fresno too many times.  (If they'd done something like that here when we first moved to Burbank, it would have been just as crazy. There was a huge vineyard and winery just 1 block up the hill from us....tacky, tacky, tacky.)

Grossest and most puke inducing slapstick of all - Jerry Lewis.

Comment by sk8eycat on January 20, 2015 at 9:22pm

Lucille Ball was a talented woman, and I hated seeing her play an idiot.  I also never understood WHY "Ricky" loved her.

THEN Hollywood made one of the biggest mistakes ever....they starred her in "Mame" when she was visibly too old to play Beauregard's mother.   Gaaaahhh!

I want to share the first 27:47 minutes of this video. How do I do that?

I hated "I Love Lucy" and "The Honeymooners" because of all the yelling.  And the subdued slapstick.

Slapstick seems to be a man thing. In most cases.
Comment by sk8eycat on January 20, 2015 at 9:16am

I still think Jesus never existed....except as a Latino baseball player.  And Larry was one of the three stooges.  A "comedy" team I never could wrap my head around.  I thought their  slapstick routines were disgusting.

"Mohammed" was a beautiful young man who is now dreadfully brain-damaged by the non-sport of boxing.

That would be cozy! I'd love to meet you here!

Yes I read it too. We still have our own little bible belt, but it's more a last resistance - a struggle about blasphemy laws, the right to ring church bells or about Sunday shopping.

Also interesting was was the outcome of research into the idea that people in the country are more neighborly than people in urban areas. Research showed it was the other way around. I'm glad of it because most people live in urban areas.
