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

Winter Driving, Preparing for the worst

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

View of Rotterdam with eclipse. The clouds are so thick that it all looks like an average gloomy winter day.

Chris, I am getting a good geology lesson. I also had to look up Faröer Islands. I have been trying to figure out how to get a photo of my Google World Map shots to send but nothing I tried worked. Guess I will have to go to the store and have a lesson.

I agree, Ian, Chris is not only a survivor, she is a thriver! I think she is about the most resilient person I have met, here or elsewhere. Isn't it nice to have such resourceful people in our midst?!

You sound like you're coping, Chris. I think that's the best we "creakers" can do. In the film I saw recently Stephen Hawking says that his philosophy of life is that "there's always something in life you can succeed at. Enjoy it".

Cloudy here too, so no eclipse. I've been at work all night so I'll sleep through it anyway.

Comment by Plinius on March 20, 2015 at 1:47am

I was mistaken. The eclipse is total at the Faröer Islands, not the Hebrides. And I won't see anything; it's misty and hazy here.

I'm 61, Katy.

What would you like to discuss? Your older relatives? I neglected them too, and most were dead before I was 20.

Comment by kathy: ky on March 20, 2015 at 12:22am
Chris, I'm interested in your opinion. I'll take any help (life experience) l can find.
I always wish I had paid more attention to my older relatives. I'm not implying you are older ;)

I looked at the path of 2017 eclipse and it seems like we'll have close to 100% totality.
Comment by kathy: ky on March 19, 2015 at 6:27pm
Pat, the eclipse will be that close to you it won't be a couple hundred miles from me. The first one my gdaughters will see and only a second one for me.
I hope Carl is comfortable. Surgeries are painful. At leastall of mine were.
