Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: on Sunday

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.

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Saturday. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

This doctor and I are friendly. The nurse's always call with the results and any follow up with a prescription or referral. If everything checked out OK they just call and tell me that.
It may be a matter of new policy. A new place came here about eight years ago and seems to be ran in much the way Daniels prior job was. A lot of turnover in the physicians dept and no compete clauses for three years.
I was just curious because I've never had one asked me to schedule for follow up on test results and didn't know anyone who has.
Whatever it is I'll find out Tue.

Gosh, Kathy, I suppose it depends on the kind of relationship you have with your doctor. 

In 2013, my primary care doctor called and said, "Joan, it's cancer!" That is all. No, "Hi, how are you," or "Brace yourself" it was just "It's cancer". My response was, "OK now what do we do?" Then began the most incredible experiences of my life. 

Wow! Qiana, your experience is very different than mine. 

Well, Kathy, I suppose you could brace yourself for the worst, listen carefully to the diagnosis and proposed treatment plan, and then go from there. You might want to take someone with you so that you have a second pair of ears hearing what is said.

It's always be the reverse here.
Comment by kathy: ky on August 30, 2016 at 4:50pm
I had a routine blood draw yesterday. And an ultrasound of my gallbladder. Today I had the hida scan. This a couple hours ago the doctors office called and told me they have the results of my blood work but I need to go see my doctor for the results.
Does anyone else have to see their doctor for that??? Prior to this they have always given me the results on the phone. High cholesterol, need vit d etc. They just call the pharmacy with the prescription. I can't imagine being called in for him to tell me everything is fine or I need vit d.

Anyone???

Gene Wilder's nephew reveals poignant reason Hollywood star kept hi...

Just about everything one can know about one performer. I like his silly smile, i.e. 

Don't pray for me; I'm an atheist

That's funny Ian.

I like your lazy slug, Joan. Me too.

Didn't know Gene Wilder was an Atheist. Nice lol, Bertold.

One of the best comic actors ever.

He was 83.
Comment by Randall Smith on August 30, 2016 at 8:40am

Gene Wilder wasn't very old, either. Probably died from heart ache, missing his ex, Gilda Radner.

I'm guessing that's a banana slug, mascot of  UC Santa Cruz. You have my permission to be one, Joan.
