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

I can see you jiving with your dust cloth, shining wood and metal to a high gloss, and pushing that Hoover with such vigor, no dust mite has a chance to survive. I need to dust ... haven't worked up the ambition.

No I don't, Joan. Living in a flat, there's not much point. About an hour every 14 days doesn't seem too much. It's during the day, not late at night. I do have tinnitus, as a result of working with large machines for several years so I restrict my exposure to loud noise but I can't live without music of some sort. My everyday listening is more classical and jazz than rock these days but some electric guitar is still wonderful.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maD5k-vUI4o

@Chris, I feel for you living near a "festival" street. Just too much commotion. Do you wear earplugs for those events? 

@Ian, do you keep your windows closed to spare the sound bothering neighbors? Hope you aren't hard of hearing. That could create some problem. 

Spokane has a powwow every year in our Riverfront Park. I like to stand near the big drums where several people are drumming. I can feel the vibration of the drum through my feet.

Oh dear, I'm one of the "noisy". I usually listen to loud music while I do my housework, quite often The Who.

This popped up on FB and I thought I'd share.

I'm both annoyed at and mystified by drivers who loudly share their music with the entire neighborhood. If it's disturbingly loud to people driving or walking in the same block, it's got to be deafening to the driver (and anyone else in the car)! How can they hear anything going on around them?

Mindy, I hope for the best for Dale!

Have fun Randall!

Strange how people force other people to "enjoy" their music and noise - I wish they kept the lot to themselves with earphones and soundproof walls.

How's Dale, Mindy?

Chris, I'm glad the weekend is over also. I get tired of listening to loud motorcycles roar down the highway (half mile away). Cyclists were out in full force, and the wind blew noise my way, disrupting my peace and quiet.

Loren, we get gorgeous sunsets around here, too. Dust from harvesting this time of year enhances the colors.

I'm spending the day with my five year old grandson, visiting people and places, eating out, and highlighted with us riding a golf cart while I play 9 holes. (I usually walk 18.) Hope he enjoys it all. Next year, I'll get him started on golf.

Beautiful picture, Loren. I'm so glad the weekend is over. There was a local festival - it means there was loud music from Friday till Sunday into the nights, drunken singing mobs,etc. We did a lot of odd jobs for our two wards, and today I can start on my own work. But it's quiet now! :-D

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 28, 2014 at 11:07am

Loren, we've had some beautiful Indian Summer sunsets here lately as well.

My wife and I went to her high school reunion last night, and in the process of that event, I managed to catch this:
