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.

New Rule: Win or Go Home (Real Time with Bill Maher)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 4. 5 Replies

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

Alexa for Evangelicals! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia Oct 9. 1 Reply

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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 30. 6 Replies

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

A whiplash is a nasty extra, Patricia, I hope it doesn't trouble you much these days.

The Netherlands are baking too, Ian. The parts above sea level are bone dry, with dying trees, people are trying to save the fish from drying brooks, etc. Here below sea level the trees get enough water, but I see many trees and plants that have clearly given up flowering for this year, dropping the buds.

Good luck with your hedges, Ian!

That was very kind of the driver, Chris. I hope your new pc arrives soon. Sewing is a useful skill but not one I've ever learned. My fingers don't do what I want them too. 

I don't know what the weather's like other places but Denmark is getting baked. A lot of trees are starting to shut down as if it was Autumn in order to survive. The long-range forecast is for even hotter weather that won't end until mid August. It's hard having to work outside cutting hedges in 30 degrees C!

We've both had whiplash, & it can come back any time for decades, & we need some physio when it does.....not fun.

Just now, my printer ran out of ink! I use it primarily for crossword puzzles. Evidently, they use quite a lot of ink. And it ain't cheap. Can't use your cartridges, Bertold. I have an HP.  Hope you get your computer soon, Chris.

Old into new. I got some used bedlinnen from someone who is decluttering. Not the size I needed, but I made three fitted sheets from it. They will serve me for five years at least.

What are you sewing?

Comment by Plinius on July 21, 2018 at 3:54am

Yes, it was very thoughtful of him, but a whiplash is something to be very careful about...

So I'm patiently waiting for pc number 4, going through a lot of retrieved messages etc. and making miles on the sewing machine...

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 21, 2018 at 2:02am

Plinius, I just paid attention to your last sentence: 

"In spite of his newly acquired whiplash, he arrived hours later to lend me a laptop."

How thoughtful of him! He undoubtedly knows how it feels to be without a computer. 

Comment by Patricia on July 21, 2018 at 1:26am

Yikes, its just one thing after another for you!!! Have to be glad the driver wasn't hurt any worse though.

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 21, 2018 at 12:38am

I hope your computer arrives soon and working at full meter.
