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.

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

Bertold, sorry you lost one of your furry family members. Nice to hear she made the most of her final days.

We lost #1 doggie yesterday. She was just shy of 15, played till her last day and made her final exit at home in bed. As good as it gets.

I'm really happy to know that you're getting your vision back, Kathy.

Ky set a record nighttime high at 68°. It was 80° yesterday. I'm ready for cooler temps. Just a little cooler. Low sixties would be nice

I grew up in a household with two parents who were birdwatchers and who kept lists of birds seen in our backyard.  Their bird books are well worn and still used today.  You may be surprised at the vast array of birds there are in a major urban setting, especially during migration times. When I was a kid I could identify many birds myself, but like most things if you don't continue to use "it" you lose "it", which is were I am today.  

I also have to say that one of the benefits of back yard bird watching is the added joy of watching squirrels.  Yes, those cute rats with the fluffy tails are very comical and can provide outright laughter at times.

What, no bird book, Joan?! You gotta get one. I use mine (and trees) all the time. The Sandhill cranes should be flying overhead to their winter homes pretty soon. Love that sight and sounds.

I woke up this morning to snowflakes as big as quarters that quickly covered the forest and ground. Jared left for work when it was 21 degrees F, or -6 C according to my handy gadget. I bundled up to get to the greenhouse and found it quite pleasant, altho I forgot to look at the temperatures while there. I won't be filling birdfeeders when it is this cold. I just scattered bird seeds around under the big red fir outside my window. A new bird flock arrived today. I still don't have a bird book. The one I have in Spokane is for Texas birds. It remained cold all day and I sat and read for a big part of the day. The snow was all gone when I went out to gather salad greens at about 5:00 PM.  

I tell Dominic I am going to the greenhouse and he leads me there, or I tell him I am headed for the tool shed and he leads me there. 

I wonder what our new normal will turn out to be, if there ever is a normal season again. Spokane had a snifter of snow this morning that didn't stick, according to Cary.

Oh, CLASSIC cut, Pat.  Always liked Spirit, myself.  They were a fun band!

Comment by Pat on November 5, 2015 at 12:37pm

22 °C, or 72 °F here at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Like Cleveland, that's unusual for this area at this time of the year. It's normally around 11 °C cooler or 22 °F cooler than it is today. While I'm enjoying it, in the back of my mind, I keep hearing that song from the 60's group "Spirit." Natures Way
