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.

Viruses Don't Watch FoxNews (Betty Bowers)

The above is the kind of headline which would likely send the Orange Nightmare into a royal hissy-fit ... but then, in addition to all the line-items outlined in the following video, viruses don't read, either!  Yes, I'm afraid that, once again,…Continue

Here the new rules say the same and all rules are extended until June 1. We're required to stay home as much as possible, can only have guests if we practice social distancing. Most people understand and adapt quickly, others need a video of a celebrity gasping for air...

Some places here are going to charge heavy fines for anyone caught not distancing.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 23, 2020 at 3:18pm

Thanks, Loren. A lovely video.

Thanks for the map, Chris. I'm suprised that Norway has so many cases. It's a very thinly-populated country. 

The strict precautions in DK have now been extended until the 13th of April. People in my town are taking social distancing VERY seriously so I don't expect many serious cases here. The people I know who are in vulnerable groups (asthma, etc.) have chosen isololation rather than run the risks.

Thanks for the nature video, Loren. Perfect for an indoor day.

Comment by Patricia on March 23, 2020 at 12:34pm

Nice to watch.

Comment by Plinius on March 23, 2020 at 11:06am

Beautiful Loren, I enjoyed it two times. Good to think of unlocked places. However, I had visitors this morning...

Comment by Loren Miller on March 23, 2020 at 9:21am

The following was in my YouTube feed this morning.  It is a record of the comings and goings over a log which spanks a small creek, somewhere in Pennsylvania, recorded with a well-hidden camera.  I thought it was pretty extraordinary, enough so to offer it for you here.  Please enjoy.

This map tells Denmark has 1517 infected, 13 deceased and 15 recovered.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 23, 2020 at 4:17am

There was an early cluster of cases in a local town here but it was stamped on very quickly. That seems to have worked. Nationally, as more extreme precautions have come into force the contagion seems to spread slowly with no mass outbreaks. C19 is still spreading but there has been no sudden spike. Oddly, there no figures for people who have recovered. 

The newest 'scandal' is that there's a shortage of testing equipment although South Korea offered DK a large batch weeks ago but health authorities replied 'no thanks'. There's not even testing available for front-line health workers!

Comment by Patricia on March 23, 2020 at 3:36am

At least W.L. is 3 hours by car away from the nearest larger center, so I hope that helps as long as people from here stay away from going to Vancouver, bringing it back, etc. Of course we have no idea if anything UNCONFIRMED is here, but we're not taking any chances with our health issues.
