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.

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Aug 4. 2 Replies

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

Joan, I'm glad to hear that Larry plowed a fireline around the houses and farm buildings, but your danger is unsettling. Thanks for the photo showing how smoky your area is.

Patricia, I read that the CA smoke has reached New York City.

Hi all.  Good to catch up with everyone.  Joan, you'll be here forever through the lives you have touched.  Including this now small,  exclusive, club.

Everyone is on fire watch these days.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 9, 2018 at 3:01am

We've cleared the furniture and anything that might burn, Laura watered the clover meadow, and we have prepared the pantry to make food that they can take or I can make if they get a fire call. 

Laura and Larry had the US forester to look at the forested acreage to see what thinning needs to be done. They applied for a grant to help pay the cost of bringing the trees into a healthier state. Larry plowed a fireline around the houses and farm buildings.

The work would not be able to be done until after the fire danger is past, and they want to get prepared for future years. They realize they are not getting younger. The work needs to be done for good forest management.

Not only the smoke from here in our BC fires, w're also getting the smoke from California's fires as well. The news tonight showed a smoke map that covered a huge area.
