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 know it does that in California, & it can happen in BC too, but the rain hasn't been enough. It quit after an hour or so, & we need weeks & weeks of it to do anything.

Fires are still burning, evacuations are still occurring, & some fires will continue to burn now until next spring, when we'll start all over again.

Patricia,

I am sorry about being a party pooper here but after a major fire and if it rains there would be mud slides and washouts.  Being raised in California, mudslides were common after a forest fire or grass/brush fire and then with rain. I looked for a web site that ill explain it better better but one here may do...

Lovers of art and Stanley Kubrick may appreciate this.

This image was making the rounds back in January when tRump was lying about the crowd size at his inauguration.

It quit after a couple of hours, but its something anyway. Just don't know how wide spread it is/was.

Ian, I remember it! Oh, that was so very long ago! 

Patricia, very good news! Let's hope the rain drenches all the fires everywhere!

Congrats, Patricia. I hope it continues.

Thomas, it's a Canon I bought second-hand from someone who upgraded to an SLR.

Joan, here's a song from 1943 that's been mostly forgotten.
