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

Sounds good Patricia.

This seems to be the year for replacements. I had to replace mine as well this year. I recommend Apple products. My son, daughter, son-in-law and I have all switched to Macs because they are so dependable. They each are in the computer business, Craig works with a large company that provides services to the military and banks, Laura and Larry each have their own computer businesses. The old ones go to my grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 

Refurbished ones can be purchased for a lower price and that is how I got started. I had mine for 5 years before it gave out. Laura cautioned me to be sure to get one that can still take updates.

Scared, not scarred:)

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 24, 2014 at 6:19pm

Before I shut the computer off for the evening, I want to mention that if one of these days I don't respond or post anything, it's my 6.5 year old computer gone wonky.  

It's being left behind because it's software is outdated and will not run the new stuff.  A couple of days ago it refused to load my e-mail until I told it to load basic HTML.  That works, but this morning it scarred me by refusing to do anything until I rebooted.

On a positive note, I finally found an ISP that works reasonably well, and only charges an arm.  Left my leg alone.

As to gold crowns, both my mother and father were cremated and the crematorium gave me an envelope with their gold crowns in them. I knew how many each had, and I was not short changed.

By the way Grinning, I have a cheap electronic bug detector and it used to give an indication that my now dead pie cherry tree was giving off a signal.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 24, 2014 at 6:00pm

OK G Cat.  You're on the list!

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 24, 2014 at 5:22pm

And Spud, count me in for meeting face-to-face!

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 24, 2014 at 5:20pm

Loren, that's a keeper (why churches don't have Wifi) !!

Somewhat related: (from Cheezburger)

Imagine if trees gave off Wifi signals, we would be planting so many trees and we'd probably save the planet too. Too bad they only produce the oxygen we breathe.

Haha!  "Yank those gold crowns" is what I told my brother, and he said he would do it.

I've got 3 in my mouth and one that was replaced that I'm saving. It's strange that they don't recycle them.  They must be worth something.  They have gold, silver and a few other metals in them.
