Hang With Friends

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.

degrading love — part one (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Nov 22. 11 Replies

Love is by many considered among the highest of positive emotions.  Yet when love of the type offered by deities is examined, something seems to go seriously wrong.  The love of Yahweh seems less a gift than a demand, not so much beneficence as a…Continue

Daniel, regarding the Nativity scenes, ordinarily I'd say something like: "Put 'em back where you found 'em," but in this case, it's a bell you just can't un-ring!  OY!!!

Anyone else see this video from Montreal?  Ah, the joys of Winter!

The nativity scenes and menorah are a lot of fun.

Good for you, Kathy. It pays to be stubborn when dealing with companies.

I love the nativity scenes, Daniel!

I refused their warranty too. Lol

Well, I have to say, it's quite an improvement of picture quality and size  with 48" HD television! I'm ashamed I waited this long. I thought the flat screens distorted shapes, making people look fat. Plus, I thought new TVs cost over $1000. Wrong on all counts. I also purchased from DISH a surge protector and warranty so I don't have to mess with what Kathy went through.

Such a good dog!

Comment by k.h. ky 11 hours ago
I let my Boston terrier out earlier this evening and when I let her back in there were two eggs, unbroken, laying in front of the door ! I picked them up and, told her good girl. About thirty minutes later she made another trip outside and layed another, unbroken egg, in front of the door. I bragged on her and gave her a treat. Another trip out and another egg, this time broken but still in the shell, in front of the door! I can't wait to see what she does tomorrow. During the summer, when the hens were running free, they slacked off laying. Or so I thought. I wonder how many she broke bringing them to the house. If any. I found two outside the coop a few weeks ago, unbroken, and just thought my youngest gdaughter had dropped them. Sweet E is the most gentle dog. If she finds anything, unusual like a baby raccoon or turtle, alive outside she comes for me and takes me where it is. She sits and barks. Once. Boston's are the sweetest dogs I've ever had. I have to remove the squeakers from their toy's or they won't play with them. They don't like the sound of anything in distress.
