Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Saturday

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

Thanks Ian,

I don't know much, or anything about William Shakesphere's tradegy Hamlet.  If I had to take a test of the play, or writing I'd fail. Does that mean I don't know the tradegy of power and family failings?

I dislike reading text written in Old English (probably because of my bias against the King James Bible).

I should become more learned.

A beautiful one, Ian, and very true!

Comment by Ian Mason on December 1, 2017 at 1:46am

Quite right, Joan. I'm reminded of a quote I heard somewhere: 'Principles are like stars. We may never quite reach them but, like the mariners of old, we use them to steer by.'

Ian, if I ever am tempted to get a tatoo, it will be one similar to your "Per ardua ad caelum"! I donn't know the Latin for, "if I aim for the stars and miss, I will land in the universe; if I am for the barn door and miss, I will land in a pile of shit."

A note on Christian values....

A Trump supporter laughing....

The shirt, " Rope.Tree.Journalist. Some assembly required" was sold at Walmart, but the store eventually then removed them off the shelf.

What Pai will do with the internet is just part of the monopolistic plans he has for cable, broadcast TV, radio, and news print.

He's a disease  that will infect democracy.

Only opiions - not facts.  In Trump land there are no facts.

Electronic Freedom Foundation.

The FCC’s 2015 Open Internet Order was a huge victory for Internet users. Thanks to the millions of us who spoke up for a free and open Internet, we won essential net neutrality protections.

Now those protections could disappear, as

Monopolost FCC Chairman Aijit Pai

is considering reversing the Open Internet Order and giving major telecommunications companies an unprecedented level of control over how we use the Internet.Please tell your members of Congress to oppose efforts to roll back net neutrality protections.

The FCC’s public comment period has ended, but it’s not too late to speak out for net neutrality.

So what do I do now?

Please urge your members of Congress to oppose efforts to roll back net neutrality protections?

I wrote a harsh message. I've never been known for tact.
The Monopolist Chairman Aijit Pai objective to provide high speed lanes for his internet kickback pals has never been what internet was about.

It should have always been a public service such as a library or telephone.

After Pai gets the goo wiped off his lover lip, and has an enema he'll make a ton of money in the private industry.  

He certianly isn't working for the public.

Blood Thinners.

Warfran bleeding can be kept under control with potasium while other new kinds of medicine such as pradaxa may cause uncontrolable bleeding  complications.

A couple of years ago I attempted to look up last names.  All I came across were commercial web sites for "Coat of Arms," and other nonsense.

Last names may not be peternal.  With wars, displacement, adoption and other conflicts a last name shouldn't matter, nor should DNA.  

The story of the family should be more important than last names, or dna.

I'm guessing that people, such as the maternal side of my family desire and look for remote relatives related to Kings and Queens - while  ignoring murderes and rapists.

If one goes back far enough it's obvious we are all related to amoeba.

Regarding cinematography. I enjoy Independent films.

I haven't seen "The Hippotamus".  I'll try to check it out.

This evening I watched a Danish Independent film "Adam's Apples"

with English subtitles that was interesting.
