Hang With Friends

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 yesterday. 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

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

Doing short walks up & down the motel corridor with the walker, & then walking around our room unaided, awkward, clumsy, & with lousy balance, but am doing it!

It's certain that we must all be our own detectives - listen to our bodies, find out what works and what doesn't, and if necessary fight with 'I'm an MD so I know better than you doctors'.

Sweet kittens, Ruth. I feel the hug.

I found that everyones body isn't symetrical, what I mean by that is everyone has a leg and other body parts that's larger than the other half which can throw the body out of alignment which results in back and knee problems.  Orthopedic shoes often help.

I read about a guy whos legs were two inches different in length.

He had orthepedic shoes made to compensate for the diffenrence for is his leg length.  The article said this back, knee and chronic pain went away.

Some solutions should be simple. Not that all are.

Yes, Plinius, I think the soft type of exercise works better, at least for me. I am not a spring chicken and can't do the more strenuous exercises. 

Comment by Plinius on November 3, 2017 at 4:36am

Thanks  Chris & Joan, I could try that! Bad knees have a bad influence on the rest of the body, so I was trying to find an exercise program.

Sit and Be Fit by Mary Ann Wilson is a Spokane woman and the studio is KSPS, public TV very near my home in Spokane. She started out years ago with a timid voice and looking as though she were uncomfortable with the project. Her program was so successful, and other stations picked it up. The people of Spokane feels great pride in the accomplishments of this woman and faithfully follow her.

Thanks Chris, I have seen those.

The following links on YouTube to Sit and Be Fit by Mary Ann Wilson is available on YouTube.

Doing some of the excercises she recommends may help you gain strength and help you recover in the long term.

The Orange One is genuinely unlikable, regardless of age, race, religion, occupation, 

* Neocons hate him because he has upset their little applecart,

* Left hates him for his alleged xenophobia, Islamophobia, and other high crimes, such as being a successful businessman.

* Sensible Center hates him because of his unvarnished, unrehearsed resemblance to ordinary Americans (setting aside his possession of several billion dollars in assets).

I do not like him because he is unreliable, undependable, dishonest, exploitive, manipulative, selfish, narcissistic, paranoid, childish, egoistical, arrogant, megalomaniacal, pompous, self-indulgent, --- I am getting tired of typing, you add your words to describe tRump!
