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

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

First we have Sinterklaas here, traditionally an old white saint/bishop with coloured servants. We had a UN-person here, who thought it was all racist. I don't feel that it's true, but we can paint the servants in other colours if someone feels hurt.

For me it's just another way to rob us of the innocent fun of an old tradition. And what's left is the pressure to buy whatever they want to sell - yes, assault is a good word for it, Carl!

Just remember that the krispy kritters STOLE xmas from the pagans...especially the decorations, gift-giving, and feasting.  The Massachusetts colony outlawed xmas celebrations (the least punishment was a day in the stocks), and JWs still shun the whole thing (Halloween and birthdays, too.)

Today is October 26.  This evening I drove past a Walgreen's Pharmacy that already had their Christmas trees up and on display.  Some people think there's a war on Xmas.  Why do I feel like Xmas is assaulting me?!  I also just learned this evening that Macy's downtown on State Street has all their Xmas window displays up as well.  What the f*ck?!

I read the Crank Mail last of all.  It depresses me too much to know there are such vicious people in this country/world.  If something, or someone, gets on my last nerve, I ignore them.  Sometimes that is the worst thing you can do to them.

Randy, your lead to  "crank mail" in FFRF's reveals a sad testimony of the lack of effective criticism. I enjoy being criticised by a critical thinker. These, however, do not meet the test. 

Other than being very funny!

Mindy, I went hunting for your comment of an hour ago and found it, the one about religion and comedy for the intelligent. A great one to put on my wall. Thanks. I also like the view of Earth, moon and sun. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 26, 2014 at 11:03am

Randy, I haven't read the "crank mail". I think it is something I might want to read ... once!

Spud, your photo is priceless! Just what I need to put on my refrigerator for 10 PM viewing.
