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.

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

Here's an off the wall question. I read on a natural remedy site that hand sanitizer would cure ear mites.
Does anyone see any harm in this? I've tried the regular otc treatment but it's oily and gets dangerously close to the eyes.

That quote's a keeper Joan.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 17, 2015 at 8:07am

Great quote, Joan.

Comment by Loren Miller on March 17, 2015 at 7:56am

That's a keeper quote, Joan.  Thanks!

Carl, I'm going to focus on the good news--the road to recovery and a long life. Here's wishing you good luck to a successful operation. Remain positive. And don't feel obligated to keep us informed.

Carl, I hope all goes well on Wednesday and from here on out!

We will be waiting to hear the good results your surgery will bring.
Comment by kathy: ky on March 16, 2015 at 4:13pm
Carl, I echo the rest with well wishes. As Joan said, if good energy and thoughts are beneficial you have many coming from your friends here. I believe there is something to that. And if not we are thinking of you anyway!

Can't get there in person, so here's a picture. Get well soon.
