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 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

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

GC, I read the story of that poor kitty and it made me cry.  How can some people be so cruel?  But it sounds like it has a loving home now.

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 31, 2017 at 1:59pm

Here's hoping the pain goes away soon, Patricia.

Comment by Patricia on October 31, 2017 at 1:35pm

I have to use a walker & wheelchair....hopefully not for long.......

That's a lot better and only in a few days! Glad to hear it, Patricia!

Comment by Patricia on October 31, 2017 at 12:51pm

Thank you. Very glad  to be out & to do as told for the next 3 months.  I have some daily physio to do, but have to call a physio therapist when we get home. Pain is bad, but I know it will eventually settle down. On pain meds, blood thinners for a month, & 2 bp meds to finally get the pressure under some control. I have to watch for infection so have to take temp several times a day.

We moved out of the original motel to one with kitchen so we can eat our own type of cooking to watch salt, fat, all tastes better too. Restaurant food gets boring after a couple of days of it.

Yes, a speedy recovery for you Patricia.  Glad the surgery part of all this is over.  

Comment by Grinning Cat on October 31, 2017 at 12:05pm

Hear, hear! Here's to you moving around better and more comfortably than ever!

(During your recovery, do what you have to do...)
