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

Oh, Napoléon, Merci de signaler cette URL de Panda. Je veux caresser tous ces chats magnifiques.
PS: I don't remember most of the French language I learned in school...I cheat... use Babelfish to translate for me. But I love those kitties, anyway.  I wanted to pet their silky tummies....

Thank you!

Ew. Carl, I still hear that sometimes.  "Gag me" is another one. 

Sounds like someone who thinks the Kardashians are real people, and wants to be just like them.

This is several years old, but one of the overused phrases that I found to be particularly annoying at the time was......."to die for." 

(Ex: The double-layer chocolate mousse cake was to die for.) 

Augh!!  Like fingernails on a blackboard.  Everything was to die for.

What artistry!

What IS it about cats and paper? The big black cat we had back in the '70s and '80s LOVED to pull Kleenex out of the box...not just one tissue, he'd grab each one as it popped up, and yank it out of the box...and shred each one. One time he (must have...we weren't home) grabbed the end of the roll of TP in the back bathroom, and walked, or ran, through the whole house with it.  When we got home, the kitchen, dining room, den, living room, and at least one bedroom had been TP'd.  He was the funniest cat we ever had, and I did the right thing when I named him T. Devil.

Gourd!  I love the silly critters!  (As if you didn't know.)

Some like to sit on paper(s), too.  I've heard someone say if there's nothing in a big room but her cat and a postage stamp, the cal will sit on the stamp. (Hope it's not one of the self-sticking type stamps.  Heh.)

LOL  That's funny, Patricia.

(I think it's even colder up near Lake Superior...maybe if we all laugh enough, it will help keep them warm.  Yes?)
