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.

Evangelicals Unmasked (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat May 26. 4 Replies

After roughly two months of "shelter-in-place," it would seem that evangelical Christians are champing at the bit to get back to their money-making-machines churches, because empty pews mean empty collection plates, which means no moolah in pastors'…Continue

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is a scofflaw as it comes to the whole "shelter-in-place" order ... ESPECIALLY when she has such a FABULOUS place to shelter in!  Problem is, she sees way too many other…Continue

Stay at home order

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Apr 6. 5 Replies

Not only should the Federal government issue the "Stay at home" order, but all medications should be negotiated through the nation and health care should be provided to all inhabitants, citizens or not. From where will the funding come? From those…Continue

Astonishingly absent!

Here the panic buying has calmed down, but I hear in the USA people are panic shopping weapons. Some marksmen they have to shoot at a virus!

Amazingly absent, aren't they?

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 28, 2020 at 11:42pm

Patricia! A more accurate claim cannot be made.

I think you may be one of the safer lot in your area.

I have limited exposure to our quiet little town,  population 2,265. The shops closed and traffic on US-2 through town reduced. Spring work in the greenhouse keeps me physically active. Laura brought in a stationary bike to keep our heart rates active. My Attitude of Gratitude Journal keeps me focused on the positives in life. The little wildlife sanctuary that I see from my west window keeps me entertained. I am quite content. I like rural living.

Pretty quiet here, too, apart from occasional thunderboomers this morning and again now.  My wife was working at home this week, except for yesterday, and next week will likely be much the same.  As for myself, I hang out here, on C|D Backfires and Hemant Mehta's site, and when I'm not doing that, I'm re-binge-watching Babylon 5 ... so I'm doin' okay.

Rather similar in DK, Chris. A lot more people going for walks though, particularly in the woods.

New legislation here will ban assemblies of more than 2 people (families excepted) even in private homes. Police to have the power to enforce this even to the extent of breaking doors down!
