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)

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

WabI-Sabi is interesting.

I'm still curious aout postal letters being scanned for email.  Many parts of rulal Oregon (U.S.A.) converted postal box addresses on rural roads to street addresses to facilitate emergency response for 911 emergency calls.

Sending hugs and good wishes your way, Patricia!

(And that's a wonderful card, Chris, introducing me to the concept and art of kintsuge!)

Emily McDowell has more good empathy cards, including "I'm so sorry you're sick... I will never try to sell you on some random treatment I read about on the internet.")

Have fun, Patricia,

I heard that hip surgery is as easy as buttering toast. We all there with you!

Ah, yes, the pink surgical soap.  I still have a couple bottles here.  

Hoping all goes well for you, Patricia.  

Comment by Ian Mason on October 27, 2017 at 3:25am

Good luck, Patricia. Or rather skilled surgeons and nurses.

Comment by Plinius on October 27, 2017 at 1:35am

Waving to you Patricia!

Comment by Patricia on October 27, 2017 at 12:05am

Thank you Joan, We are in our motel room now & I am about to get in the tub with my beautiful shocking pink surgical soap.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 26, 2017 at 11:50pm

Patricia, it sounds as though you are well prepared for the procedure and the follow-up protocol. No advice needed from us! We will eagerly await your report on your adventure into the hip-replacement department. The plans for your return home sound just right for your needs.

Tomorrow is the big day! I've been thinking of you as you prepare to do what is necessary to end/reduce the pain you experience. I'm thinking of Rick too, realizing how stress can be high for the loved ones.
