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.

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

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

Birthday Greetings, Spud!

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 5, 2017 at 1:58pm

Spud, Happy 76th birthday! I know your Dad served in WW II and you were born shortly before Pearl Harbor. Those first years must have been tumultuous for your parents. I hope your childhood was safe, secure and stable. Where did your father serve? Where did your mother live? Was she close to supportive family? Do you remember when your Dad came home?

These are questions that come from being a child and remembering Pearl Harbor day and what followed.

My Dad was gone for the duration of the war, not serving in the armed forces, but building ammunition dumps in Hermiston, Ore and air fields and support buildings in Fairbanks, Alaska. I remember very clearly when he came home.

Happy b-day Spud! (When it comes to your gift, nothing is too good for you, but that's what I got you anyway.)

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 5, 2017 at 10:44am

I'm 76 today.  You may congratulate me, or perhaps condolences are more in order.

Paraphrasing a line in the movie "Ghostbusters", no gift is too large, no gift is too expensive.
