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

Just in time for Halloween.

It's been used so many times it's become a scary movie cliché: an ominous, rustling sound in the next room. The person on the screen reluctantly opens the door and, suddenly, lets out a bloodcurdling scream at the sight of ... a cat.

Using scenes from such horror classics as "Friday the 13th," "Halloween" and "Pet Sematary" (as well as some non-horror hits like "Horrible Bosses" and "Romancing the Stone"), Alex Moschina created a fantastic supercut — "It's just a cat" — that includes no less than 25 cats.

Tony, that "Chammak Challo" video is fun to watch and very colorful.  I found two things to be very interesting.  Everyone was very light-skinned and the lead male had searing blue eyes.  I wasn't expecting that from India.  I hope Bollywood isn't purposefully making such drastic changes to their performers in order to make their films more marketable.  I admit, I know absolutely nothing about Bollywood movies, so perhaps this clip is an anomaly.  I've watched independent films from India but not from mainstream Bollywood.

Mushrooms sound good in chili. Will have to try it.

I like the old song and dance movies from the 30's and 40's. Grew up watching them with my mom. Song and dance is still alive in India. This is from the movie RA.One. Chammak Challo.

Patricia, I so wanted to be a tap dancer when I was a kid.  I grew up watching all those Fred Astaire and Shirley Temple type of movies and I've always loved the music from that era.

Sauteing the mushrooms first is a good idea.  I suspect that brings out more of the flavor.

Here's a little gem I discovered.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 8, 2013 at 11:37pm

And now for something completely different.

Ian, try this when your back is better. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 8, 2013 at 11:24pm

Tony, that's a wonderful clip.  It sure is a mood enhancer. 

Patricia, I forgot to mention, I've never had chili with mushrooms.....at least that I know of.  I'm curious what kind you use.  I imagine the little button mushrooms would be very appropriate as well. 

Comment by Tony Carroll on October 8, 2013 at 11:08pm

Sorry to hear about your back also Ian. When I get feeling bad, I like to watch old movies. I hope this helps. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Swing Time.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 8, 2013 at 6:57pm

Sorry to hear about your back, Ian.  As someone who occasionally has their back "go out" on them, I totally understand.  Last time it happened to me, about two years ago, I was literally in tears one night from the horrendous pain and using a folding chair as a walker to get from my bed to the bathroom.
