Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

New Rule: Win or Go Home (Real Time with Bill Maher)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 4. 5 Replies

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a mid-term election coming up in three days, and it's more than a little important.  With it we can take back at least one if not both houses of Congress from the Republicans and send a message to Donald Trump…Continue

Alexa for Evangelicals! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia Oct 9. 1 Reply

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 30. 6 Replies

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Trae Crowder isn't just about atheism.  He has a deep and abiding concern about what's going on with this planet's climate and the all-too-probable catastrophe we face from a fundamental change in weather patterns.  That said, Trae is thinking about…Continue

Good news all around, Patricia. And I doubt any of us prayed for Rick!

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 6, 2018 at 2:28am

Patricia, happily, you had a phone call from Rick. It must have felt good to hear him, even if he sounded groggy. Please give him my greetings. How are you holding up? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 6, 2018 at 2:25am

On Monday, It snowed at Switzer Mountain near Sandpoint, ID., about 25 miles east of here. The bitter cold kept me inside for a few days. It was 93°F here at Newport, WA., on Thursday.

We're cool, & rainy at times for the moment, but we still have over 200 fires in the province. I heard somewhere that we'd need solid rain every day for 3 years to fix the drought.

Rick called a couple of hours ago, a bit groggy, but he sounds good. Very glad its done.

Comment by Plinius on July 6, 2018 at 12:27am

not yet anyway! How are the wildfires in your area?

Very glad that Rick is on the mend! I hope your hip operation goes as smooth!

Comment by Patricia on July 5, 2018 at 6:20pm

Thank you Joan. 

The surgeon wants me done within a couple of months, so he used last December's x-ray date rather than June's x-ray date to send to the hospital booking. He's hoping that may hurry things up, but I'll believe it when I see it.

At least that hospital doesn't have all our evacuated patients like last year, which I'm sure delayed the first hip big time..

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 5, 2018 at 6:09pm

That is great news, Patricia! Now, for hip, hip away!

Comment by Patricia on July 5, 2018 at 3:46pm

Thanks Loren.

Comment by Loren Miller on July 5, 2018 at 3:24pm

Outstanding news, Patricia!

Comment by Patricia on July 5, 2018 at 2:14pm

Thanks, Bertold, very glad its done. Now on to my other hip soon I hope!!!!
