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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

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

That's what the Okanagan gets.

My only problem with the cold is not being able to get myself outside to exercise.  I just vegetate in the winter and gain too much fat.  Indoor exercise is too boring.  I can't keep it up for long.  I want to move to a place like St. George Utah where it's in the 90s and 100s in the summer, and rarely gets below freezing in the winter.

The lower half of BC gets no colder than you do now Spud. In fact some of your temps may be even lower than ours in winter. In fact parts of the Okanagan area is desert-like.

I've been looking on the post office site for images of the letters coming to me each day.  I'm going to start looking before the mail gets here and checking for my name and address.  When I find another wrong one, I'll try catching the mailman to inform him, instead of taking it back to the post office.  In the last few years, I've gotten a wrong one about once a year.  That is probably after the computer started sorting.

I took a wrong letter back to the post office today, that I found in my box.  The address had the same number as mine and the same first 3 letters of the street name.  I asked the postal worker if a computer sorted the mail, and she said yes.  It wasn't the fault of the delivery person.  He just delivers the bundle that the computer calculates goes to me.

I would rather be Canadian as well.  If Canada was warmer, I'd seriously consider it.

Yes, I saw those videos, Chris.

The hospital physio gave me booklets on the exercises I'm to do several times a day, with adding to them each week. Hamstring stretching, stomach clenching, butt clenching, side ways leg lifts, walking, knee bends but not past the 90 degrees, many yoga like stretches, using my arms to lift from chairs (making sure all my seating has arms), pumping feet, making sure not to twist the leg, or turn foot inward, etc.

What kind of physical therapy are you receiving?

I referenced Sit and Be Fit by

Mary Ann Wilson, RN. It might help you.

My brother said I should have tattooes of zippers on scar tissue.
