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

10 Things About Patriotism (Betty Bowers)

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

Even though I've never been a gum-cherwr, I would tell people to avoid BuyBull Gum because amout of bacteria found in "holy" water fonts....

Heh!

Steph, I'm not exactly "Fe-line lucky," but I'm still FELAINE!

(Frances ELAINE...using my middle name all my life has caused me all kinds of mix-ups with our Holey Bureaucracy, but I like things this way...and it's what my parents called me.  Too late to ask anybody why they did that now.)

Mindy, I hope your son recovers quickly!

And Felaine, hang in there... if the US were a civilized nation, health care wouldn't be held hostage to a predatory layer of administrators and insurance shareholders. But I'm preaching to the preacher, so to speak.

Thanks, Joan, for the pointer to a "vision" of St. Nicholas based on actual knowledge and evidence (imagine that!) rather than "our heroes must be white".

I saw Wicked in 2006.  I agree, Loren, it was a lot of fun and very enjoyable.  I have to laugh at one reviewers comment at the time that stated the majority of the audience was teen girls and gay men.  Yup, I was there with a guy I was dating at the time and I can confirm that statement.

Thinking of The Wizard of Oz, my wife and I just went to see Wicked at the State Theater in downtown Cleveland.  Simple review: if you have so much as the remotest chance, SEE IT!!!

The comments are as funny as the "article."

This ought to twist some KKK Krischun knickers.
