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

Enjoy the festivities, Randall. The persimmon pudding sounds fantastic!

Comment by Randall Smith on November 6, 2014 at 9:01am

Boy, ain't THAT the truth, Mindy!

I'm late on the computer this morning for two reasons. One, I couldn't get connected to the internet. And wouldn't you know it, the minute I began talking to the tech man, it came on! Second, I was making persimmon pudding and scalloped corn for our family gathering (early T-giving) today at my house.

I'll have all four of my children and their children (and spouses minus one), plus my two sisters (twins) and my 96 yr old father. Since my dad wouldn't come if my ex-wife was here, the kids told her to stay home (and mope)! Yeah! I invited her just to be nice, but the children wanted their grandfather to come.

And wouldn't you know it (#2), I'm coming down with a cold. Rats. Still, we'll have a good time--and good food!

why do people slow down to a halt to look at someone changing a tire on the side of the road? sigh...

Mindy, I got a few "Unfriends" too. Good. I have too much mail to read anyway. 

Charlie is also Daniel's Black French Poodle's name. That will be easy to remember, I hope. My memory isn't so good.

That's funny (in a sadly truthful way), CLAWS.  That about sums it up. 

Mindy, you've only spoken the truth on Facebook.  If others can't handle it, oh well.

I love that you threw in a side of atheism to go with that anti-republican entree, Mindy. It sounds like your sister REALLY needs to get out more!

Comment by Deidre on November 5, 2014 at 7:03pm

@ booklover, wow...your sister unfriended you over politics? lol Well, you spoke your mind, so be it...

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 5, 2014 at 6:44pm

Mindy, I would love to know what horrible things you said about republicans that would make your sister un-friend you.  lol

Comment by Deidre on November 5, 2014 at 6:36pm

LOL @ CLAWS.

I didn't end up voting. I went there, the line was wayyy too long, and I had dinner plans with a friend. I swung back after dinner, and the polls were closed. lol

Comment by Deidre on November 5, 2014 at 6:34pm

I don't know what it is, but this daylight savings time makes me sleepier so much earlier at night. It looks like midnight outside, when it's only 7:30pm lol Anyone else have a struggle with this? :=D
