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 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

Winter Driving, Preparing for the worst

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

Happy-Happy, Chris and very best wishes to you!

I´ll put the recipe in Food.

Thanks, everyone!. Actually now my chronic sinus trouble has escalated into a respiratory infection as well. Still waiting for the endocrinologist to get back to me about the scan.

Chris, Happy Birthday! Your chili sin carne y con fruta sounds delicious.  Do you share the recipe? I have never heard of chili with fruit.

Chris, happy birthday. That is a very good photo of your party. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Ruth I hope the DR's find a quick resolution to your health problems. I underwent four gallbladder scans over an eight year period. Every one showed the gallbladder was fine.
Long story short, the pain and nausea turned out to be a very rare side effect of a heart medicine that I had been on for.... eight years :(
I finally researched it out myself.

That's much better--hearing from you all! Good news (Ian's vacation, Chris' birthday party) and not-so-good (Ruth's health issues). A/N is important (for lack of a better word) to me--connecting with people I'll likely never meet yet consider them good friends. Like Daniel said, so many people sign up here, but don't contribute or simply fade away. I know I appreciated the welcome I got when I first joined.

We often (silent "f") talk about the weather. I've thought about starting up a new group on weather and climate, but I think it would be rather boring.

I hope you feel better soon, Ruth!

I´ve been busy celebrating my birthday - very unusual for me. The neighbours had talked me into cooking chili sin carne y con fruta for them and after they had found out my date of birth they made a very nice party, which I enjoyed very much.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 25, 2017 at 11:00pm

Ian, thank you for the spectacular artist's renditions of "NASA Telescope Reveals Largest Batch of Earth-Size, Habitable-Zone Planets Around Single Star. " 

These discussions and videos sparkle in my imagination. What will my great-grandsons and daughter see that I cannot even imagine? I hope they are free of the fascist movements.
