Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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

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

Kathy, congratulations to your grandson and his fiancé!!

(My parents also got married on July 4th; a wonderful day to declare their interdependence, and enjoy fireworks afterwards! :)

On posting pictures: you can type a smaller width for display; people can click on the picture to see it full size. There's an explanation of the whole process at "How To - Insert a Picture or Other Graphic".

Ruth, my mask only goes over my nose.  I have two straps that go around my head just above my eye level, and two straps that go around my head just under my ears.  If you lay on your side, the straps between your head and the pillow seem to "drag" on the pillow, so you can move your head just a little to adjust the intake from the machine.  Move your head around just a little until you feel the most air going to your nose.  You'll be used to it in a day or two.

All you have to do to post one of your pictures here is press the second icon above, after link. then use browse to navigate to the picture on your computer, Just make sure it's not too big. 450 pixels wide is pretty much the maximum width that'll fit.

Thanks all. I'm so happy for them. Unfortunately his father is having a problem with the idea but I'm certain he will learn that we are all just people. He was really good when they came to tgiving dinner.

Carl, I'd love to post photos but I'm photo/computer illiterate :(

Bertold, my mask goes only over the nose. I couldn't use the nasal pillow type because too much cartilage had been surgically removed from my nose by an incompetent doctor.

Congrats on your grandson's marriage, k.h. ky!

Cathy, perhaps a photo or two can be posted of the event if agreed to by all parties involved.  :)

Comment by Loren Miller on June 27, 2016 at 3:01pm

Outstanding news, Kathy!  Very best wishes to the happy couple and all involved!

Comment by Ian Mason on June 27, 2016 at 2:44pm

Congratulations, Cathy, and all the best to the happy couple.

Congrats Kathy! There's nothing like loving and supportive family for a new start in life!
