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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

I'm glad you feel better Patricia! I've been busy restarting lessons after the summer holidays: it's so good when people love to see you again!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 4, 2013 at 10:11pm

Yes, that sure is a crappy day, Patricia.  I'm sorry to hear about your husband.  What an ordeal having to call an ambulance and having to go through all that hassle.  I'm glad he's OK. 

I hope, at least, the Chinese food was good.  What did you order?

Here's a video to show your husband to perk up his mood.  I think he'll appreciate this.

Here's to a better day tomorrow.

Ruth, I'm spending a *bleep-pile* of money by running the A/C and waiting for the Schwan's driver to bring me my order of frozen food (ice cream!). It's 100 deg. outside right now, and anyone who has to be out in that heat has my sympathy.

I'm also working on The Pet Press Events Calendar. The Stray Cat Alliance is throwing their annual "Stray Cat Club" gala, if anyone is interested. (Tee-hee!  It will be held at a "private Bel Air estate," and General Admission is $150....NOT my cuppa tea!)

I'm also taking breaks from the keyboard to re-read a collection of Robert G. Ingersoll's best work. Wonderful stuff!  We need an eloquent, outspoken person like him now. An outstanding orator who can really move people.

"Daily Kale" on Twitter had some advice for Steph's panicked kitty... good thing cats don't have thumbs!

Spider in your bed? Vitamin-packed kale gives you the energy and strength needed to burn down your house and move to new spider-free home

Just waitin' for the plumber to finish so I can drive around doing chores and go to the gym. How about you?

Comment by Steph S. on September 4, 2013 at 10:32am

hi! how is everyone doing?

Comment by Loren Miller on September 4, 2013 at 6:47am

Comment by Loren Miller just now Delete Comment Some of us here know the Englishman Stephen Fry, perhaps from his appearance in the movie, Sherlock Holmes, Game of Shadows, or for his brilliant performance in the 2009 Intelligence-Squared debate, where he appeared "my trusty Hitch[ens] by my side," and basically wiped the floor with their opponents on the subject: "The catholic church is a force for good in the world."

Well, here, poor Stephen gets the tables turned on him on his own show - QI - though somehow, I'm not certain he minds too much!

Ian, I left a reply to your post in the "NEWS" group. 

In the myth, the good big guy isn't supposed to hit the bad little guy FIRST.  If at all.

Comment by Ian Mason on September 3, 2013 at 8:25pm

Just my twopenn'th of opinion re the big issue in the news.

It seems to me that countries continue to believe in their own myths, no matter what evidence there is to the contrary.

America: if the "good" cowboy stands up to and shoots the "baddies" at high noon on Main Street the grateful townsfolk will come running to thank him as their problems are now solved forever.

Britain: send in a gunboat or a few planes, fire off a few shells and the ignorant "darkies" will run back to the hills and stop causing trouble.

Denmark: the issue doesn't matter, just as long as we get picked as a makeweight by the Big Boys for their team. We've been noticed!

Oh, one more thing. Poison gas in Damascus? That's what Winston Churchill suggested in 1919 as a method for keeping the uppity natives in their place

Single payer is definitely the way to go. The nonsense of it all ... I have type 2 Diabetes and I control it with Rx, diet and exercise. I don't need to test unless I don't feel good and then I usually find my blood sugar is too high. An easy fix, and I get back on track. I know when I need to check

My medical insurance sends me a new supply of strips and other supplies every month. It is usual for me to use three or four in a month. If you can use my style of strips, I will send them to you gladly. I suspect mine are mickey mouse compared to what your son needs.
