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.

Oh, NO!  The gun debate has gotten so heated that it has Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, TALKING TO HERSELF!  Apparently, one of her has had a stroke or a serious breakdown in cognitive skills, as she does little more than parrot the NRA's…Continue

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

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

We yanks do make illogic a fetish, but sorting by date requires computer code that puts the three fields into decreasing order, or year-month-day.

Eyeballing successive records would be easier too.

Day-month-year makes more sense than month-day-year, but we 'murricans are used to the illogical system. And it lets us celebrate "Pi Day" on 3/14; April doesn't have enough days for 31/4. :)

Belated 'happy birthday' Randall.

I've been trying to eat sugar-free too, mostly to try to reduce my waistline and weight. It's been gettting harder and harder to run any distance the past few years and I hope the loss of a few kilos will reduce the effort I have to make plus reduce the strain on my hips/knees/ankles. I do intend (like you) to indulge while on holiday in Athens shortly. Ruins and baklava! My idea of heaven.

I like to soak sultanas overnight then add them to porridge. Buttermilk on top of that is nice too. The sour complements the sweet.

...I heat up the fruits in the nukewave.

Comment by Thomas Murray on March 28, 2017 at 11:31am


I put hot raisins in my oatmeal, or any warm/hot fruit in the oatmeal. I dunno how it works but hot fruits makes oatmeal taste sweeter.

Comment by Plinius on March 28, 2017 at 9:35am

any device, Joan? Have you tried asking?

We could make a list. I'm from 25-2-1954, I think Americans would write 2-25-1954. Looks strange to me.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 28, 2017 at 7:28am

Sugar substitutes just aren't the same. For example, on this morning's oatmeal, I tried cinnamon, vanilla, and raspberries (black), plus a spoonful of yogurt. Nope. But, the subs are good for me anyway.

I was clipped and as a man being pregnant is an impossibility even with a women I'm with.  Unless she's cheating on me.

Har Har.

Chris, I'm not going to believe you're pregnant.
Comment by Chris on March 28, 2017 at 3:25am

I've been craving cheese cake lately.

Randall I underatand that there are benificial fats that curtail sweet cravings - such as Olive oil and Avacadoes for example.

Happy B/D.

I'm thinking about taking a train to Oergon to see the solar eclipse. I have afriend there I can stay with. It may be difficult to afford, but it's a once in a lifetime oppertunity.
