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 Feb 16. 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)

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

The nights are getting much cooler now.  A few nights ago I went to bed with socks on because my feet were cold.  I internally screamed, "It's too early for this!"

We've had ''the end of summer'' for a month, but the air is still bad most of the time. The hills around town were invisible, & the smoke was right down into our yards yesterday. I have to get a few groceries later today, & its mask time again........

The same in Denmark,Chris. If you want rain, we've got it: the wettest summer in 30 years. I won't complain though. Those suffering flood, fire and hurricane are much worse off.

Time to send you some cool breathable air. It looks like the end of summer here.

Carl, anytime you make it to Cleveland, the beers are on me.

We might as well get used to hurricanes, wildfires, floods, tectonic plate shifts, and earthquakes, 

Wind, Fire, Water, and Degraded soils, these essential elements, created by misuse and abuse of humankind, are Mother Nature's and Father Time's revenge. 

Humans got away with ineffective and inefficient methods of living for centuries, and now the elements get their say. It isn't going to be easy to sustain life at all, let alone life as we know it. Those who survive will be those who face reality, deal with facts, and take actions that solve problems. 

Building sea walls around shorelines, or replacing structures in flood zones at citizens' expense will not and cannot work. Insurance companies will go bankrupt, and if the government bails them out, the costs will be born by taxpayers. 

Earned income will be taxed, unearned income will avoid taxes. That is the way our tax system works.

Loren, I beat your Eagle Creek fire post by eleven minutes.  You owe me a beer.  :)
