Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Saturday

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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

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

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

Daniel, your new kitchen looks brand new, not like a remodel to suit the inspector. I hope all goes well with your plans and project. How do you like your sink? I see them in modern kitchen photos and wonder if they work well for you? My friend, Char, had one that looked like that and loved it. Is your energy holding up through all this? 

Spud, you are correct, we need an atheist Winter Solstice stamp. Do you have an idea for a design? I kind of like the images of the shortest day of the year and the returning of the light. 

The sun's path over Fairbanks, Alaska on the shortest day of the year.

Great work, Daniel, and I admire the methodical way you ordered your plans!

Yes, people will discover all over again what patriotism does to people, but we can only encourage them to read their own history.

Some good news. Last year in Denmark 56% of electricity came from renewable sources and use of coal fell by 35%. CO 2 emissions have been cut by one third since 1990. These are official figures but even taken with a pinch of salt things are going the right way here.

I just noticed that the United States Postal Service has a lot of religious stamps.  In just a 30 minute search I found  5 christian stamps, 1 Hanukkah stamp, 1 Hindu stamp, and 1 Islamic stamp.  But of course, none about atheism, even though atheists comprise about 20% of the population.

Isn't the 5 christian stamps against the separation of church and state?

National expansion - they do it only to get a better grip on a few small islands in the Meuse. I have not the slightest national or patriotic feeling and I really hate Wilders. He makes money from rousing people's unhappy feelings and puts the blame on foreigners - and I'm afraid he will win the elections with his usual one liners like Trump did.

I see I have been slow in answering - I work too hard but the mountain of chores won't disappear...

Believe me, Randall, the difference between a stretched 480p signal (old NTSC) and a full HD 720p or 1080i is considerable, and the larger your screen, the more you'll notice it.

Hope you enjoy!

I bit the bullet and upgraded my television package. I talked the guy on the phone into a better rate, saving $16/mo. So, for an extra dollar a day, I'll have HD (high definition) and more programs--not that that is a positive(!). (PS, Q-M: I've tried all those screen adjustments. It only does so much.)

Happy December 1st. It suddenly turned cold around these parts.

National expansion, Chris. Wilders must be extatic.

Bad luck, Randall. That's a lot of extra money every month. Keep a lookout for holiday special deals, though at Dish network.

My last TV was still working when I got rid of it after more than 20 years. I only changed because the cable went digital. The electronics shop nearly fell over with shock when I asked for the smallest possible flat-screen model (28"). I must admit that electronics etc drive me to distraction.
