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.

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

Today is a big day of the family joining together to clear out the underbrush of the forest, gather up and bury the slash and logs and create a firm fireline across the south end of the clearing. Laura is in charge of the crews, Larry is smoking and BBQing part of the feast, Laurie is in charge of the small children and kitchen, Michelle and her five young ones will be involved, the six year old as runner with water and band-aids as he barks encouragement to the 16-year-old on the tractor. 

We had another terrible thunder and lightning storm last night that took out the power for a few hours. The sun shines brightly on the forest this morning. 

Yesterday morning, a mother deer and her yearling grazed past my north window and disappeared into the forest to the west.

Ruth, it is beginning to look as though you and your husband made it over the big challenge. As life comes back to a new normal I trust the really bad events reside in the past and each day become better and easier for both of you.

Thanks for the pictures of your trip, Ian.

Nice repurposed church buildings.

Hubby is improving every day. The c diff is gone. He's even started doing a few chores again, though he still uses a walker.

I actually got time to look at news and cheezburge today. :)
