Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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.

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 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

How is your foot Joan?  It was your foot that broke, wasn't it?

Your special dinner sounded tasty!

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 22, 2018 at 2:15am

Thank you, Patricia, for the lovely flowers and birthday greeting, and Chris (Plinius) thank you.

Randy, 82 years old and delighted to reach this age and see this incredibly interesting period of human evolution. I see remarkable things happening on the individual level as well as in economics; I just wish the government would grow up in a noble endeavor. If democracy delivered this kind of leadership we have today, I want no part of it. Yet, of course, we have never had a democracy, not when Jefferson wrote his honorable words, not when corporations became persons. 

Am I feeling hopeless? Not in a million years. I just wish I could live to see a real democracy put into place. 

My Colorado grandchildren receive the kind of education that has the potential to do great things. They receive training in system theory, in how to build strong teams, how to solve problems without the use of violence, and how to be a positive contributor to joint activities, and how to be an effective and efficient leader. 

Craig prepared my celebration dinner tonight\, a Thai beef, onion, noodle dinner; delicious

After my hip replacement, I'm absolutely paranoid about falling on the snow or of the main reasons I purchased a manual treadmill to ''walk'' in the house.

Daniel is going to get more rest than he ever wanted. I hope he doesn't get up to soon. 

My family physician had a double heart valve replacement and started walking around his farm a few days later. Of course he promptly fell down. Dr's are probably the worst patients.
