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

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

Uh...greetings.  I've been hanging out at Jeffs Cats Book Club on the Cheezburger site.  I haven't been to Cheezburger much lately, but Jeff decided to expand his SF "collection," and I couldn't resist:

DARKOVER LANDFALL

So many books, so little time...

You're a good mom, Mindy.  Sometimes that means embarrassing your kids.  lol

I know that calling down curses is not usually our thing but couldn't resist this.

Chicago lost a television icon earlier this week. 

Jerry Bishop, the original Svengoolie, dead at 77

Chicago Tribune

Jerry G. Bishop, as the original Svengoolie on Chicago's horror-movie showcase SCREAMING YELLOW THEATER (1970-73), sings a parody version of "Button Up Your Overcoat," accompanied by a talking skull named Zelda.

This is from a time when television was completely different and had many locally produced shows.  It doesn't get any cornier than this.....which is why I love it.

And Hello back to you Steph.  Hope you are keeping things rational in Texas.  I read that Wendy Davis is being courted to run for governor.  That would be sweet!!  I hope she does.  It's way past time for some sanity from the executive office of TX.  

Mindy, how are your mother's cats?  Will we get to see some pictures?  :)    Also, I'm just a little curious.....what dinner did your mother make for you and your daughter that the boys won't have any part of?  When I was a kid, my father never liked tacos, so when he had his monthly union meeting and missed dinner.......union night was taco night!!

Booklover that sounds so wonderful that you are living debt free and paid off your house already. Wow - Congrats.

More people should live like you do. Less worry and stress.

oooh I love Talk Like a Pirate Day.

For the video game I am playing Star Trek Online I set up an event for my Fleet called Talk like a Pirate day to celebrate today.

How is everyone doing?
