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

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

Grinning Cat, you must be one of those who can look at a machine and disassemble it and put it back together, mentally and physically. I seem to have no technical skills.

My printer is a Dell color laser, a big ugly black box meant for small offices, bought cheaply on Craigslist from a company after double-sided printing stopped working and they bought a new printer. I got it home, thinking about ordering a new duplexer, but reseated the duplexer unit inside the printer, found the correct setting in the driver, and it's been printing many, many double-sided documents with zero problems ever since. And it prints beautiful photos as well as text, FAST, and the toner lasts almost forever! :)

My first Mac was a $400.00 refurb, and it lasted me many years. My newest computer is a new one and worth every cent.

I agree with Lilac, and I've heard you can get great deals. Sometimes a client has ordered a large number of computers and some spec or other is out of order so they have to be replaced. The devices in the original order would then be sold as refurbs, but they're actually new.

I only paid $440 for my new mini mac computer, but I'm sorry I didn't get the $1000 one.  Mine had good reviews, but it's so slow, I'm often quite irritated at it.

Comment by Randall Smith on August 4, 2017 at 7:15am

I'm almost embarrassed to confess that my computer is a refurbished Dell desktop. It cost me nearly $300. Printer is a HP, about $70, but with a scanner, etc. My ex-wife calls me a "minimalist". I agree.

I'm interested in the brand of computer also Randy.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 3, 2017 at 11:03am

Randy, what kind of computer did you get? An upgrade is always fun. I broke down and bought a tablet a while back.

Comment by Randall Smith on August 3, 2017 at 6:35am

Life is good! I love my new, fast, computer and printer. Add to that, a new lawn tractor (Cub Cadet). And no, I'm not buying a new vehicle. Don't want to get carried away.

Joan - wonderful story. What a great dad!
