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.

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

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

Betrold, I haven't read Bramble, if it's the one where a giant of a man comes to metropolis and death walks beside him.

I mostly like adventure Sci-Fi, without BEMs or scary stuff.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on September 18, 2014 at 8:13am

@Carl - thanks, and top of the morning to you.

@Spud - I used to love sci-fi as a kid too. I still remember a story called Bramble, I think, in the Orbit series that was way creepy.

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 18, 2014 at 8:00am

Thanks Carl.  I've bookmarked that site.

Bertold, ever since you posted a pic of yourself in your avatar I've been meaning to say, "Hello.  Nice to see you."

Spud, I recently discovered audio books on this website:  https://archive.org/details/audio_bookspoetry

They are free because they are in the public domain and are read by amateurs.   

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 18, 2014 at 7:40am

I loved reading books when I was young.  Had many awards from school for the number of books I'd read.  In my teenage years, I devoured stack of Science Fiction books.  

Because of my bad eyes, and bum that doesn't like sitting too long, I don't read much anymore, but do manage to read some on evolution and some atheist books.

Reading is not as necessary as it once was, due to audio books and Youtube.

I'll second that, Randall. If I had a soul, I'd sell it to have McConnell lose, just so I wouldn't have to hear his whiny voice any more. I should be more sympathetic, I guess. I think he suffers from obsessive-repulsive disorder.

Comment by Randall Smith on September 18, 2014 at 7:33am

I love reading books. Now into a Robert E. Lee biography. Marvelous.

K.H., gee I hope McConnell loses. Don't like him. In fact, I can't think of a single Republican I do like! Arrogant SOBs.

Comment by kathy: ky on September 18, 2014 at 12:18am
Mitch McConnell must be running scared. For the first time in over thirty years l received a solicitation from the republican party.
Let's go Grimes{d} ky.!!
