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

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

Well, I'll be at the hospital this afternoon for my umbilical hernia surgery.  Catch up with you in a few days.  Have a great week!

Carl, wonderful listening to Mildred. My mother sang in jazz bands while at Indiana U. back in the late 30's and was influenced by Ms. Bailey. Thanks for the memories.

Hanging from the window to catch this pic. I think the pot of gold is in the next street.

Good music, Carl!

I am sorry for your loss, Ian. Peace and comfort to your family.

Catching up... I'm sorry to hear of your family's loss, Ian!

re: the Marshmallow Test....that last little red-headed girl (who ate her single marshmallow right away) looks and act exactly as my sister did when she was that age....and older. 

Still does.  But every doctor and therapist I've told about her agrees with me; she has Asperger's.  (And I still have scars where she bit me when she was 5 or 6 years old.)

Some Sunday evening easy-listening sounds from a fantastic singer from days gone by.  I hope you enjoy......

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 7, 2014 at 10:57am

Randall, I've also seen video footage of the Marshmallow experiment.  Like Mindy said, it's interesting to watch the kids faces as they ponder what they should do.
