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, 2017. 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, 2017. 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

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

About the ear plugs....be obvious.  Use big wads of cotton!  And stare at all the people (slaves) with their heads bowed as if you have suddenly found yourself in a crowd of lunatics; especially if they have their hands in the shackled position.. 

(If the retirement community is funded by government(s), they are violating the law.)

Ear plugs.  Thanks for the idea Randy.  If I ever accept a meal invitation at one of my Mormon relatives houses again, I just may take some and stuff them in.

 It would be interesting to see the reaction, but I highly doubt I will ever accept again.

Curiosity is the primary enticement for eating Thanksgiving dinner with my father at his retirement community. I can just imagine the dishes--mainly soft and mushy. Wonder if a prayer will be given? Ear plugs, please. And I can't talk to my dad without shouting. Oh well, he's buying.

Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels.

We all have magical powers.........

Sounds like a very enjoyable evening out, Mindy.  That's the same situation with me and my best friend.  It's nice to be able to cut loose with an understanding audience.  .

Felaine, have you kept a diary? I think I asked you that before. Maybe you could recall enough of your experiences to write a book.

Patricia, I really enjoy watching all the trains, the scenery and the engineering of the whole system. The Master Engineer poking his head out draws one back to reality of the size of the trains.

Procter & Gamble is making a big to-do over their support of the Pink Ribbon/Breast Cancer cause.  HOWEVER at least 90% of their products contain known carcinogens.

If you want to support the cause, find some way of doing it without buying ANY P&G products.  Ever. 

(I have hated that company since I was a child listening to their stupid commercials on the radio...."Oh, I don't use [bleep] any more.  I use New, Improved [bleep]!"  As IF women are too stupid to know it's still the same old crap, no matter what they call it.)

I wasn't too thrilled when we had to do early morning shortened shows for the company brass when we played Cincinnati, either.  Rudest audiences I've ever skated for. .8 > (

Ian, happy and safe travels and great times with your family. Build up some good memories to hold you over until your next visit.

Have a good trip and visit, Ian!
