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

10 Things About Patriotism (Betty Bowers)

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

I know the Flemish are always ready for fun, Joan. You know how I think.

Carl, don't watch this unless you are prepared to laugh!

For those needing a laugh, I just want you all to know that we Belgians stand out in unusual ways. 

I know, Chris, I'm resorting to nationalism again. But, what the heck!

Joan, you have impressive gardening energy. I haven't even removed last year's dead Asiatic Lily stems yet.

My well wishes for Carl too!

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 18, 2015 at 12:37pm

Good morning world! I just came in from a couple of hours in the garden, I am exhausted and ready for a nice nap. Cary and I spread 3 yards of manure over the boxes and piled the rest where I get access to it easily.  

I hope everyone has a great day. I trust my snoring doesn't wake you up! 

Comment by Grinning Cat on March 18, 2015 at 10:16am

Yet another set of hugs and well wishes for Carl!

"I know you will greet each morning with gratitude for the gift of life, and go to bed thankful for another day." Good advice from Joan to us all. (And no gods needed, however similar it sounds to some religious teachings!)

@Carl, a very good morning to you! Realizing this will be a very busy day for you, thankfully, you can sleep through part of it. March 18 becomes a milestone year for you and the beginning of a new life. I know you will greet each morning with gratitude for the gift of life, and go to bed thankful for another day. Even the rough days have very special meaning ... you are alive! I hope you heal quickly and get to the time when you know you had the courage to do what needed to be done and glad you did it. 

Love and hugs, Joan

Only saw ear mites with the cats - the vet had good stuff for it...

I hope Carl is OK. He won't know much before tomorrow.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 18, 2015 at 7:33am

Yuck, Kathy--ear mites sounds awful! Can't answer your question.

Hope Carl makes it through today. He'll be on my mind.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 17, 2015 at 9:07pm

Carl, you are probably asleep by now. Healing will begin soon. I echo Randy's statement that you should not feel obligated to notify us; we are a patient lot. So when you feel up to it we will be here.

It sounds worth a try. I use it to treat dermatitis in my ears.
