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

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

That's a great video, Ruth.  I honestly believe we would do the same here.  We are all human, and most of us have empathy.  A large group of people anywhere in the world I think would be prompted to act in such a heroic manner.  Just my 2-cent opinion.

In Australia, a man's leg slipped in the gap between the platform and train. Everybody helped tip the train, to rescue him.

I wonder if US commuters would have been as quick-thinking and helpful.

In all my years, I've never had to serve jury duty. My hat's off, k.h., for your service. 

Joan, how often do we see a volunteer or good Samaritan die or get killed trying to save someone? How do god believers explain that?

Laura had this comment on Facebook: 

"Laura Smith-Johnson via Volunteer Firefighters

"This is why we do traffic control at incidents - to protect the ones who are helping others by preventing accidents like this one. It might be inconvenient for motorists, but it saves lives and prevents injuries to responders."
These were volunteer firefighters.

I just posted a piece on dyslexia on my "Brain Studies Discussions" titled "Dyslexia: Scribbled Stunning Portraits of Famous Dyslexics" that you may like to read.

Well, k.h., you did your civil duty and now I'm sure you're glad you don't have to do that again for a while.

For you pet lovers out there.  Check out these adorable pet trailers.

Carl, brought in a guilty verdict today. A 38 year old woman disappeared in 1993. Last seen leaving work with her bil. Her body has never been found. This case was against the mans wife. Google Patsy Calloway if you want the many, confusing, details.

Here's a little something to help everyone get over that Wednesday hump.  My parents have this album.

Love that meme, Patricia.  **I'm stealing it.**
