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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

But she had a day when she couldn't move her legs, I think, and that looks like a stroke or a TIA.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 19, 2015 at 10:02am

Thanks Chris.  I agree Carl.  I wonder if she had strokes in months or years before, because her posts on here didn't show it to me.  She was sharp through her last post.

Chris, thanks for that additional information about Felaine.  You are absolutely correct.  Her treatment came far too late to make a difference.  I also agree with you when you previously said that Elaine died of poverty.  Years of neglect in getting proper medical care was a result of having to make a choice between food or medicine.  No one should have to face that decision.  Such an infuriating situation.  I'm glad, also, that she was in a hospital and being properly cared for when she died. 

Comment by Plinius on August 19, 2015 at 2:01am

Patricia had a bit more news about Felaine:

Felaine's death was caused by several strokes so she didn't have a chance.
I still think her care came far too late, but she at least didn't have to become a vegetable, as she so feared.
We just have to be glad she was in the right place to die instead of at home, & looked after as best as possible under the circumstances.

I read a book about the Bermuda Triangle in the 80s - can't remember the author. The author believed in it, but the proof was non  existant. Full of vague threats, the Marie Celeste, other favourite mysteries and so on.

Ooops! "Their"  My only excuse is that I was tired.

Flying Atheist, that Photoshop fakewas a fantastic find.

Lloyds of London doesn't buy the Bermuda Triangle, Ian? That settles it.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 18, 2015 at 5:39pm

Ian, I enjoyed "Classical Conspiracy Theorists" and it fits in with how the banality of a tightly buttoned, repressed middle-class family expresses their frustration through conflicts. 

I wish some people would take a conflict-resolution class or two.  

how a tightly-buttoned, repressed middle-class family express their frustrations through conflicts about something banal.

'Devil's Graveyards'  One of these is supposed to be the Bermuda Triangle. There was a documentary about this a few years ago and one of the institutions that doesn't believe in it is Lloyds of London. As the major insurer of marine traffic, they're opinion carries a lot of weight. Who's ever heard of an insurance company that missed en excuse to set premiums up?

I've had an interesting evening at the theatre. Attended one of a series called 'Readings.' A writer, a director and a small cast have one day to shape a provisional performance of a work-in-progress. They then explain what they were trying to do with the production and take questions from the audience. It gave me some insight into how drama works. Tonight's piece was 'Betamax versus VHS' and was about how a tightly-buttoned, repressed middle-class family express their frustrations through conflicts about something banal.
