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)

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

Purchasing department orders too much skin.

Production department just incorporates the extra into the manufacturing process.

Product gets recalled by Public Relations because the change wasn't approved by the Cultural Diversity Team.

Typical corporate bungling.

GC, I was about to make your very point about Click and Clack (The Tappet Brothers!) and their law team, but you beat me to it!

Catching up here... Chris, I'm glad you're safe! Lots of questions about governments not doing their job...

Patricia, I hope everything goes well! If it were me, I don't know if I'd prefer to be asleep through it all, or awake. I remember hearing about people being given drugs that not only keep you calm, but prevent strong (or any?) memories of the operation from being retained.

Loren and Spud, it feels weird to me to refer to a young Mormon missionary who's 18 or 20 as "Elder"! Anyway, it reminded me of Dr. Kellie's story of accidentally getting a pair of evangelists to reconsider knocking on her door: "what boobs are good for". :)

Wasn't Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe the law firm retained by the Car Talk guys?

Ha, cute!

Yes, Bertold.  I've always gotten a chuckle out of that law firm.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on October 24, 2017 at 11:31am

Reminds me of the famous law firm, Dewey, Cheatum, and Howe.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 24, 2017 at 11:15am

Spud, if Cheatum wins his election, I hope he doesn't live up to his name.  

Chicago lies within Cook County, which has the dubious nickname "Crook County."

I got this City councel election mailpiece today & thought the last guys name was amusing:
