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

For those of you who are interested, I've posted my impressions of The Unbelievers in my blog.  There may be more regarding the book signing, which left its own impressions and which I think want some commentary.

I WILL get there eventually!

Patricia, what a sad childhood.  I don't know what to say, so I'll just say I second what Joan has said.

I think it would do me good to work at being humorous like you do.

Comment by Pat on April 8, 2014 at 7:15am

Outstanding Loren! Can't wait to read the review.

Comment by Plinius on April 8, 2014 at 7:05am

Welcome back Ian, and thanks for the pictures, I like them very much.

" many need help just to survive their families"

Very true, but the stories are told and shared here: we're in good company!

I imagine that at least a couple of you want to know how The Unbelievers was last night.  I will likely be a little while writing about that, but in the meantime, here's a little something to let you all know that yours truly wasn't just blowing smoke:

Grottos at Rosh HaNrika, near the Lebanese border.

Smart wheels, Patricia.

Dome of the Rock and little brother.

Brent, good to see you back. I remember someone giving you a hard time a while ago about posting the details of your friends radio show. You made those posts before each broadcast. I never, ever viewed that as spam and I didn't understand why that person got all bent out of shape about it. It kinda came out of nowhere. I'm sorry it was enough to keep you away from here.
Anyway, I'm sorry you've had a rough time lately dealing with family health issues, but it's great to have you back with the herd.

As promised, a few pics: Jerusalem High Street and shops, 2,000 years ago. Potholes caused by a Roman demolition squad pushing bits of temple off the hilltop in the year 70.

Nice to have you back, Brent and to hear that you're bearing up under the strain. It sounds like life hasn't been easy of late.

That's a good weights and measures system, Joan.

A family should ideally help you to cope with the ups and downs of life, a secure base to help you survive the vagaries of your journey but it sounds like many need help just to survive their families. Very sad.
