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.

Evangelicals Breaking Up with Jesus (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat May 28. 10 Replies

Has evangelical Christianity lost sight of Christ?  Seems to me that there are a whole lot of evangelical Christians who are presuming to represent Jesus by not representing him or misrepresenting him or – let's be honest here – talking out of their…Continue

Even worse is what Monsanto did with Bovine Groth Hormone.

Interesting that hydrionaged oil AKA Margerine is  still produce.

Most people by now must know that hydrogenated oil is unhelathy.

One of the funniest things I've seen in ages....

I think the horse knew the rubber  chicken was a squekey toy.

I rode a horse one time without a saddle that just had rope reigns - not bit - no saddle.  That horse charged across a pasture then put the breaks on and turned 90 degrees.   I slid off the horse and landed under it.  The horse backed up looked at me and laughed in my face. 

Neat horse.  I got to know it and rode it again.

Re white margarine colored yellow.

I was ten when WW2 started and my dad wouldn’t use margarine. One day my mom shaped colored margarine like a quarter pound of butter and didn’t tell anyone.

He used it and she later teased him. He had a sense of humor and didn’t get angry.

Spud, I remember hearing about how dairy farmers pushed for those regulations that margarine couldn't be sold with a "butterlike" yellow color, hence the dye packet. Even in this decade, the dairy industry is protecting its turf, pushing against calling soymilk and other plant-based "milks" by that name ("Soy, Almond, Coconut: If It's Not From A Cow, Can You Legally Call It Milk?", NPR).

And a number of states are being sued on free-speech grounds over laws restricting plant-based products from being called "meat", "sausage", "jerky", "burger", or "hot dog". (How else can you label a veggie burger? Here too, the livestock industry is attempting to protect its turf. "What Gets To Be A 'Burger'? States Restrict Labels On Plant-Based Meat", NPR)

That may have been after the war because sugar was rationed duding the war, wasn't it?

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 11, 2019 at 12:29pm

I seem to remember the unappetizing margarine or lard on toast being unlikable, but mom put lots of sugar on top and that made it OK.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 11, 2019 at 12:20pm

Spud, I remember those food rationings, too. The package of white goo with a ball of the yellow die is a memorable one. I also remember eating lard on toast; never developed a liking for that.

Hope you had a memorable day!
