Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Monday

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.

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Grinning Cat Aug 27. 20 Replies

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

I hope its soon too, Plinius. Pain is so wearing.

Comment by Plinius on July 7, 2018 at 1:08am

I hope they'll fix your hip soon, Patricia!

Here it's also far too hot and DRY! I practice my raindance and carry water to my roof garden, to prevent the plants from dying. 100 litres a day is barely enough.

29 charges for the driver who killed & injured the Humboldt Hockey players.

Thanks everyone. Rick called again this morning sounding much better. He went to the pacemaker clinic today to get the settings fine tuned, & apparently this new implant has another alarm on it that will sound if he's away from his bedside monitor, to inform him to call or get to the pacemaker clinic. He's getting more bionic all the time

Nope, no praying around here either.

My hip is just getting terrible, I need my walker around the house again, & its back to crawling the stairs when I need to use them, pain is agonizing.....sigh......

That's good news, Patricia. I hope your hip goes as smoothly.

Weather: Denmark is suffering the worst drought in 40 years. Perhaps the climate doubters will start to think again.

Comment by Randall Smith on July 6, 2018 at 6:33am

Good news all around, Patricia. And I doubt any of us prayed for Rick!

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 6, 2018 at 2:28am

Patricia, happily, you had a phone call from Rick. It must have felt good to hear him, even if he sounded groggy. Please give him my greetings. How are you holding up? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 6, 2018 at 2:25am

On Monday, It snowed at Switzer Mountain near Sandpoint, ID., about 25 miles east of here. The bitter cold kept me inside for a few days. It was 93°F here at Newport, WA., on Thursday.


Comment by Patricia on July 6, 2018 at 12:49am

We're cool, & rainy at times for the moment, but we still have over 200 fires in the province. I heard somewhere that we'd need solid rain every day for 3 years to fix the drought.

Rick called a couple of hours ago, a bit groggy, but he sounds good. Very glad its done.

Comment by Plinius on July 6, 2018 at 12:27am

not yet anyway! How are the wildfires in your area?

Very glad that Rick is on the mend! I hope your hip operation goes as smooth!
