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

Ruth, l don't believe it was mentioned to me either until the day of. The major risk, as I understood it, was bleeding from the artery in the groin area where the tiny puncture is made. That was several years ago and may be different now.

Nobody mentioned that to me.

Comment by kathy: ky on January 7, 2016 at 8:28pm
Thanks everyone but I'm fine. Just going through the early winter yuks. Lots of rain, can't get out in the yard...but I drove to bowling green sun and saw my grandson and his (my foster) dog. It was a rare sunny day.

Ruth, the heart cath isn't bad. Laying flat on your back with the pressure weight eight hours after it's done is the worst of it. That's the way mine was anyway.
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 7, 2016 at 1:21pm

Thanks, k.h. ky, Joan, Plinius, and Ian. I'm scheduled for Tues, unless my health fails to improve. :)

I miss long daylight hours too.

Comment by Ian Mason on January 7, 2016 at 8:35am

I hope you pick up soon, Ruth and Kathy. The days are getting longer now.

Yes, Joan we haven't managed our world very well. Short-term monetary gain has trumped common sense time and time again.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 7, 2016 at 3:36am

Ruth, I am sorry to learn of your health problems. A heart cath sounds like some serious things going on, complicated by other variables. My hope is that you and Kathy get your vigor back soon. 

Comment by Plinius on January 7, 2016 at 2:20am

Get better soon, Ruth and Kathy!

Comment by kathy: ky on January 6, 2016 at 8:31pm
I hope you feel better soon.
Comment by kathy: ky on January 6, 2016 at 8:30pm
Me too. On the low energy. It's the shift in daylight hours that gets me. Can't get in the yard and do anything. Tiresome.
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 6, 2016 at 8:17pm

Thanks for the inquiry, k.h. ky. I've had a chronic sinus condition for years, and it often turns into bronchitis when the weather changes to Winter, despite humidifiers and HEPA filters. This year it waited until the real cold to hit a few days ago. Problem is, I need  a heart cath. Can't schedule it until I'm recovered. <sigh> Just trying to take care of myself. The antibiotic won't be available till tomorrow. I've been low energy, and not very bright lately.
