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.

degrading love — part one (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Nov 22. 11 Replies

Love is by many considered among the highest of positive emotions.  Yet when love of the type offered by deities is examined, something seems to go seriously wrong.  The love of Yahweh seems less a gift than a demand, not so much beneficence as a…Continue

Split pea soup is one of my favorites.  I add things to it for variety, but most times, I just use butter, pepper & salt.  Very economical that way.

Happy for you Felaine!

What a wonderful gift, sk8eycat!  I couldn't be happier for you. 

Comment by sk8eycat on December 23, 2014 at 4:45pm

Patricia...you're right, NO rosemary! !  It will make a simple scent decoration....maybe a sprig on the wall above each cat box....   Heh 

Just thyme, salt, pepper, onion, carrots....peas....ham, ham broth....and maybe a sprinkle of hot red pepper flakes at the table.  Oh!  And BUTTER!  I can't cook without butter.

Comment by sk8eycat on December 23, 2014 at 4:22pm

He also brought some sprigs of fresh rosemary (eww...we have a whole bush outside the front door)...I don't really like it in my food, but I think I'm going to put a red bow on it and hang it in the living room.  For remembrance.

Mike is SO incredibly NICE (and single/divorced)!  Wish I was 30 or 40 years younger......

OMNerrrrrrves!  My real estate agent just brought us a CARE package!  1 chicken, 1 ham, bananas, and everything else I need to make split pea w/ham soup.....and 4 or 5 real meals.

Excuse me; I need to cry.....   Haven't done that in ages.

Oops, thought I was posting in the food group.  I'll put a pointer in there to here.

Well, we had some puns in the FOOD discussion, so we need a few here.  IMO.
