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

Oh, goodness me!!  LOL   Yes, the man was wandering through the desert, not the dessert.  Thanks for pointing that out.

Now that we talk about spelling you give us another wonderful image, FA! The man with the car door wandering through after dinner sweets - plodding in the pudding? Climbing up a chunk of pineapple? I should photoshop images like that!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on June 5, 2014 at 10:03am

Randall, I'm reminded of the joke where a guy is discovered wandering through the dessert carrying a car door.  When asked why he's carrying the door the man replies, "If it gets hot, I can roll down the window."   

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 5, 2014 at 9:55am

Randall, thank you for the correction. It didn't even occur to me that I used the wrong word. Imagining Cary walking with a gate is a funny image. 

Another advantage of not having a TV set is I don't get bombarded with Cialis or any other commercial. The internet provides all the news I want, without the propaganda effect of commercial TV. It also provides a lot of information not available on TV, i.e. Al Jazeera, BBC, Public Radio International, RT, The Guardian, The Real News offer alternative views. All news needs a skeptical eye to sort through propaganda, facts, and prejudices.

I don't watch much television, but the majority of any e-mail spam I receive is to save money on cheap Cialis, Viagra and medications from Canada. 

Comment by Randall Smith on June 5, 2014 at 7:30am

Joan, I had to laugh when I read about "Cary walking with a gate". I have this mental image. I'm sure you meant "gait"! 

I don't know if this is the place, but I have to vent. What's with all the Cialis commercials? They're on all the networks' evening news, MSNBC, History Channel, TBS, etc. (Not the Food Channel, so far!) Are men really THAT dysfunctional? I mean talk about overkill. I absolutely hate those commercials and will immediately change channels. Disgusting.

Your's too Ian.

That's really funny, Patricia. Thanks.

Back from a very pleasant few days in England. Enjoyed very much seeing some family and am slightly rounder in the waist thanks to some excellent home cooking. Saw "Titus Andronicus" at The Globe which was good although Anthony Hopkins's version is still the best.

A little pun that might cheer you up:

Patricia, thanks for that funny.
