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.

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

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

Thanks for clearing that up Mindy.  I didn't know that the Archie cartoonist was that religious either.

Thanks for the G+ information also.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 26, 2014 at 4:34pm

Mindy, does that cartoon have another installment, or is it that I just don't get the joke?

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 26, 2014 at 4:13pm

Mindy, glad to hear that things are going well for your daughter.

I finally quit facebook a couple of weeks ago, but now I'm getting some posts from people on G+.  I'd like to quit it also, but understand if I do that my mail  from gmail.com will disappear and I don't want that to happen.  Does anyone know about that?

For those that have computers that don't work like my iMac, perhaps I should try reposting the image:

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 26, 2014 at 3:56pm

Mindy, nothing showed-up for me until I right clicked in the blank space, and it gave me a lot of open image and save image options.  I clicked on open image in a new tab and saw it.

Hi Mindy.  I thought I'd chime in with an opinion about your Facebook situation.  Everyone here has given you excellent advice.  In addition, it's pretty obvious you know how you want to respond, you just needed some outside validation.  I think your daughter hit the nail on the head:  "%&#@, no!"   As you pointed out (and Patricia dually noted) you weren't very close friends with this person to begin with, so there's no reason, in my opinion, to rekindle a friendship that didn't have a firm foundation from the start.    

I'd rather have a small group of strong, loyal friends than a large group of many acquaintances and friends of questionable value.  The fact that you are questioning whether or not you want to be friends with this person pretty much sums up the situation in a nutshell.

If it's not too late, have a good trip, Patricia.

Mindy, it's all been said so I won't try to add more.

I enjoy FB but I know it's just for fun. If I need to share something personal THIS is the place and YOU are the people.

Have a great weekend. Hugs to all.

Comment by Steph S. on April 25, 2014 at 10:23pm

Hugs to you too Mindy - you are my good friend too.

Everyone have a good weekend.

Comment by sk8eycat on April 25, 2014 at 5:50pm

Patricia, is this a NIGHT trip?  Or will you be able to enjoy the scenery?  Either way, relax, and have a grand time!

Comment by Steph S. on April 25, 2014 at 4:24pm

Patricia have a safe trip. Be safe.
