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

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

A river cruise can be a lovely thing, Daniel.

Patricia, the problem is that no-one thinks things through when there's a profit to be made and anyone who raises objections is regarded as negative.

Comment by Patricia on September 4, 2017 at 1:25pm

Arguments go on here all the time about who should pay for damages done by human caused damages. Landslides happen quite often after heavy rains in those areas, because things are done underground creating a lot of instability.

That is a sad looking bear.

Ian, from what I've read, Southeast Idaho has not allowed fracking yet.

The north of the Netherlands sits on top of a gasfield. Since the 60s a lot of gas has been used and the north has had many earthquakes because of it. Not stronger than 5, but a lot of houses are slowly torn apart and the lawsuits about who should pay for the damage are endless.

a horrible picture, Joan. 

Comment by Randall Smith on September 4, 2017 at 6:50am

While living in Pomona (CA) back in 1971, I was shaken out of bed by a 6.7 earthquake. It killed over 50 people, mostly in a veterans hospital in Northridge if I remember correctly. I had cupboard items fall down.

I worry about my son living near Santa Cruz (CA) with the San Andreas fault nearby.

Sad looking Polar bear, Joan.

The state of Oklahoma has numerous earthquakes that are attributed to fracking.

It's such a horrible process.  Extracting more fossil fuel to burn and wasting and contaminating water at the same time.  How sad.

I've never experienced an earthquake or tremor.  

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 4, 2017 at 12:19am

  In my experience, the only times when earthquakes are dangerous is in the city, or near tall structures. But in the case like an  earthquake at Diablo Canyon Power Plant no place is safe.

Did the air smell fresh on the water?
