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.

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)

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

Thomas, no, Idaho gets earthquakes quite often, but they're usually small.  The largest of this group was 5.3, which is more powerful than usual I think.

Is it uncommon Idaho have earthquakes?

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 3, 2017 at 8:28am

Oops, I got those first & second quakes reversed.

Southeastern Idaho had over 50 earthquakes Saturday evening and Sunday morning.  I only felt one.

As I was watching a movie Saturday at 6:03 PM, I felt my chair rock a little for a couple of seconds.  It's a heavy easy chair that sits on a concrete floor in the basement, so it's never rocked before.

It had me a little concerned, and it took me several minutes to realize it was an earthquake.  At first I thought it was a truck that hit my house, but there was no noise.

I went to bed an hour later, and felt none in bed.  

I can remember 2 other times that I felt small earthquakes, and I've never been frightened.  The first one was in California in about 1969.  I was talking to my girlfriend from a phone booth when the booth started rocking.  I told her it feels like an earthquake, laughed, and continued talking.

The second one was in a boardinghouse in Spokane Washington in about 1967.  I was laying in bed and felt the bed shake.  I thought it was one of my housemates shaking the bed, but realized what it was when I saw no one under the bed.

I seem to remember feeling another one or two, but don't remember any details.

Well as Daniel would say...."it is what it is."

Comment by Plinius on September 3, 2017 at 12:03am

it's a nightmare for you, Patricia.

Comment by Patricia on September 2, 2017 at 9:22pm

I know that, which is why I take only half the daily limit. The trouble is, this pain is agonizing & putting up with it is impossible.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on September 2, 2017 at 9:16pm

Patricia, be careful not to take too much Tylenol. People die from liver toxicity. I'm sure your doctor tells you how much is safe. My hairdresser's mother used to take a lot, and one day she suddenly fell down, then died within 2 weeks. People don't realize how dangerous it is since it's over the counter.

That sounds lovely, Joan. Are the winters very hard there, with a lot of snow in the mountains?

Comment by Patricia on September 2, 2017 at 3:27pm

A good change for you Joan.

The southern attitudes rather shock us, even though we see it daily on news or whatever.
