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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6. 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

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Donald R Barbera Sep 27. 5 Replies

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

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Plinius Sep 26. 2 Replies

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

Patricia, I remember moving to another country and it was somewhat chaotic for a while. Still a good idea to keep enquiring though. I hope your friend is all right.

Cats: very relaxed animals but you never know what they're plotting. Afraid my French isn't up to reading all of NB's quote. Man isn't a perfect animal? Something like that.

Chris, nice to receive your message and participation in the group hug! It does feel good. Your last day of the course, with tokens of appreciation from your students, life just doesn't get any better.

Over 50 messages while I slept and worked! But I'll still join in the group hug for the Patricia's anniversary, Joan's chemo, Felaine's sore head and cat, .... just for all of you.

Today was the last day of my course; flowers, kisses and presents for the teacher! They always make me happy!

Steph, this is a work of art. Di you do it? Very clever. All the elements are there, especially the head on the head! Try to duplicate that!

I would never have guessed, Steph.

Flying Atheist that is so funny. I love it.

Patricia I love those flowers. So beautiful.

Patricia, I think if something bad had occurred you definitely would have had some news.  Keep in mind that moving is very stressful, especially from one continent to another, and that daily routines are disrupted.  When you don't have regular access to internet or your own phone it's hard to keep in touch.  I say give them a bit more time to settle in.  Perhaps phone lines and internet connections are still in the process of being hooked up.

Happy anniversary Patricia.

Smashing pic, Carl. Yes, a big hug to Felaine.

Joan, I hope the after/side effects of the chemo are  tolerable and that you can enjoy the view from your window.
