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

Couldn't resist this.

Joan, my sister told me that Freddie, the fat black cat, was on her bed, and slept through the entire event.

Useless blob.

Ian, safe journey, sounds like a visit. Hope all is well.

Glad you're all right, Felaine.

That cartoon took me a minute too, Mindy.

What an amazing writing desk!

Tomorrow I'll be off to England on a family visit. Looking forward to it.

Oh, I'm fine, but after living through 4 or 5 major quakes makes me jumpy whenever anything in the house rattles.  All it takes is a heavy truck driving up the street....

Felane, very happy to learn you are safe, unhurt, and undamaged. Poor Kitties.

Perhaps 10,000 leprechauns were performing their version of "Riverdance"....at 6:25 this morning. 

One interesting fact stemming from the 1994 Northridge quake was that certain areas...like West L.A., Westwood, and some coastal areas were damaged as much as, or more than, places that are nearer to the actual epicenter.  Although, my friend Sue, who is VERY close to Northridge, and everyone in her neighborhood had to rebuild the cinder-block walls between their yards.  The old ones (without rebar) all fell down, but no actual damage to their houses. 

Haven't heard any damage reports from this morning's little dance.

Here is what Google Earth shows. Interesting where the swarms exist. The 4.4 quake is the largest orange dot above U.S. 405

I'm glad you're OK, sk8eycat. Funny cartoon, booklover. It took me a second to get it.
