Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 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

Good to meet you too Thomas. I'm in Williams Lake, the middle of BC called the Cariboo.

 Hi Patricia,

 Nice to meet you.

My wife is Canadian and all her relatives live in and around Toronto, Ontario.

Three people can't link to NG. I have never subscribed to NG yet I get the link...hummm maybe the link is cross connected in with my neighbor? Maybe this is why I also get connected to a porn site... as far as I know... most of the neighbors here are religious....

Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 4:30pm

I can't do the NG either, Thomas, & tis link just says error.

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 1, 2017 at 3:45pm

... Lets hope you can link onto this article about religion and children...

http://www.cell.com/current-biology/pdf/S0960-9822(15)01167-7.pdf

 I have felt this might be the case with children and religion but I didn't rely on my feelings because of my bias. Some members here probably already seen this but just in case. I wish there were more studies of this nature and hope, once again, science will prove religion wrong again.

...I do not understand why I get the article when I am not a subscriber to National Geo...... I use Duck Duck Go to get the article.....

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 1, 2017 at 3:10pm

Joan and Idaho,

Try "Good Gas, Bad Gas National Geographic" in your search box. You're bound to get several hits......

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 1, 2017 at 2:54pm

I couldn't read that National Geographic article either, without subscribing.

Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 2:27pm

Yes, Colorado has has its fires too.

You have ankle problems?

Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 2:26pm

With our health issues, we really can't think too far ahead. We want to stay in the house as long as we can look after it. I need help with housekeeping & pay someone to come in every 2 weeks to clean the big stuff. Rick has purchased a riding mower for the lawns.

I need hip replacement so can't walk until that gets done.....whenever that may be. I have to have the surgery in Prince George, but as that was such a big fire evacuee center, who knows how long it will be until I get the call? All our hospital patients were sent there, & are just coming back now.

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 1, 2017 at 2:01pm

Do you have any long-range plans, Patricia? Do any of us? Our forests begin to burn as well. 

I will be living 6 months with Craig and his family in Colorado and their burns have been ferocious. Few of us will be free of fire and/or smoke. I will be content in both places, especially now that my ankle seems not to want me to walk. I can stay in my chair and read my email.
