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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Donald R Barbera Sep 27. 5 Replies

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

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

At least I'm not covered in snow and ice. So far so good!

I don't care for text speak or spelling either. I'm afraid I'll forget correct english and spelling if I stopped using it. I use Lol because I have such an odd sense of humor l don't know if others know that I'm teasing or joking.
Carl, just keep on keeping on. I had a heart cath a year or so ago and it wasn't bad. I know that's not like surgery. Remember that we are all pulling for you.

something to ease the waiting?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on February 2, 2015 at 12:13pm

We got blasted with snow here in Chicago.  The final tally is 19 inches (48 cm).  Schools are closed and lots of people staying home from work today.  I was scheduled for a doctor appointment at 9:45 this morning but I had to cancel.  My sister was going to pick me up and drive me there but many of the streets are still not drivable.  In my condition, I don't have the strength to navigate on foot through all this snow and take two buses and a train to get there.  I get out of breath just walking around my apartment.

I'm expecting a decision this week from the kidney transplant team concerning my surgery.  I have a feeling that they will want me to have heart surgery first before having a kidney transplant.  Ugh......the waiting.

Better stay indoors! Your snowstorm is even in our news.

I didn't know what TMI meant either, and will probably forget again.  I've started trying to remember to write-out most chatinese instead of using the abbreviations because I often don't know what people are talking about and don't want people wondering what I'm talking about.

I'm sure they often do anyway, because I'm not a good writer.  By the way, I didn't know what chatinese meant until you peeps started using it and I got the definition by the context.

I stopped taking all of the drugs my urologist gave me because my symptoms were worse while taking drugs, even though my PSA readings were lowered dramatically.  

For that reason, I was interested in the talk about saw palmetto.  I looked it up on Wikipedia and they said study results are mixed, but most show that it's no better than a placebo.

I just thought TMI was like LOL and OMG. As little "chatinese" as I know and speak, I DO know those!

"Candlemas Day, Candlemas Day! Half the wood and half the hay." Maud Silverthorn, 1890-1974 (my grandmother).                  Yes, today, Feb. 2 is not only Groundhog Day, but Candlemas Day. Really.  And if my grandmother's poem is true, I'm in trouble, because I have less than half my wood left to last me the winter through!

Lol

. Mindy, that's one of my favorites.

Patricia, TMI is to much information. I didn't know if you were asking that or asking Spud if you were giving him TMI.

Excellent fact picture Mindy.
