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.

Deep Field: The Impossible Magnitude of Our Universe (Eric Whitacre)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia yesterday. 3 Replies

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a mid-term election coming up in three days, and it's more than a little important.  With it we can take back at least one if not both houses of Congress from the Republicans and send a message to Donald Trump…Continue

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

Just got a new (Canadian) printer, and I have some cartridges from the old one. If anyone happens to have an Epson that uses the 702 cartridges, you're welcome to them.

Its good you have the dogs along.

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 20, 2018 at 1:07am

I always have the dogs with me and I don't go off the place. I spend most of my time in the greenhouse or the shed trying to find places for all the stuff we want to keep from my home.

So you think twice before you take a walk...

Comment by Patricia on July 19, 2018 at 2:59pm

That's creepy, Joan.

Randy, From my front porch in Spokane, I enjoyed seeing the neighbors pass by on their daily walks. At L&L Acres, I am off a gravel road that leads off from the paved county road and rarely see or hear cars or truck. I see no walkers, except for the druggies who live down the county road and who regularly scan the isolated homes and farms looking for things to steal. It is eerie to see them snooping around through the forest. Dominic and Zeek take care of them for me. I should get me a weapon that shoots spray...Oh! I have one.

I used to walk everywhere, every day, Randy, but can't now. I also have arthritis on the bottom of my feet & in the bunion area, which is getting very painful lately. I have to find ways around that after I get the other hip replaced.

Comment by Randall Smith on July 19, 2018 at 7:26am

Joan and Patricia, I love walking! I do my best thinking and planning when I'm out walking the countryside or golf course. I've walked at least 6 miles every day but one the past 3 weeks. It's an hour and a half well spent.

So, I encourage you two lovely ladies to continue exercising. Keep up the good work!

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 19, 2018 at 4:54am

Patricia, I love your spirit!

Strengthening the muscles around the new hip, & encouraging the bone to grow around it. I was supposed to go to physio, but I did my own damn exercises to avoid going out in winter & risking falls on the snow/ice. I used the stairs, a stationary bike, a manual treadmill, plus squeezing my butt together, sucking in my stomach, & lifting my legs from the seated position. I walked up & down the street outside before the snow hit, so I did my diligence & the x-rays showed the bone was growing around the new hip just fine.

I also did not want to pay the user fees to have a physio therapist  make me do things I hate.
