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.

Evangelicals Unmasked (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat May 26. 4 Replies

After roughly two months of "shelter-in-place," it would seem that evangelical Christians are champing at the bit to get back to their money-making-machines churches, because empty pews mean empty collection plates, which means no moolah in pastors'…Continue

A good place to be, Ian, I love your plants!

Good news about Stella, Ruth!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on June 24, 2020 at 8:19pm

Neither of those links worked for me, Ian. The Feminist video was great, Patricia.

I've been absorbed by the new cat lately. And the pandemic. Got behind.

Stella wasn't eating well the first four days. She's better today. She's finally released into the house this evening, and rapidly inspected it all. The cat tree especially meets with her approval. 

PA is reopening, and our housecleaners cleaned the place today for the first time in a few months. Using masks and gloves. We'd found it shocking burdensome to do ourselves. My one finger easily triggers doing ordinary tasks, like putting on a fitted sheet. We decided to take the risk.

Good to see some greenery.

Comment by Ian Mason on June 24, 2020 at 12:54pm

The balcony. The pot with bulbs is of course just brown now and the poppy died but the rest is flourishing. There is: rhubarb, mint, tomato, a rose, campanula, fuschia, lavender, azalea and a purple thing I don't know the name of.

Yes, visualization helps.

Comment by Plinius on June 22, 2020 at 11:52pm

That's worth looking at, thanks Patricia! It means much more when you can compare.

Send a pic of your balcony, Ian?

'Neofeudalism' is a new expression for me, Joan but I can understand why you use it.

I had whitefly in an azelea and the online tips I found were 1) spray with skimmed milk and let it go sour. They don't like the taste. 2) put strong-smelling plants (I have mint and lavender) next to the vulnerable ones to prevent re-infection. It's worked so far. Influenced by my ladyfriend Elna I've really gone to town with my balcony this year with some success. It's quite pleasant to sit outside with greenery, flowers, bees and hoverflies.

powerful lyrics! Thanks for the subtitled song, Patricia! I haven't found a solution for my hearing problems yet...

Comment by Patricia on June 21, 2020 at 3:32pm
