Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Saturday

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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6. 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

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

Joan and Idaho,

Try "Good Gas, Bad Gas National Geographic" in your search box. You're bound to get several hits......

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 1, 2017 at 2:54pm

I couldn't read that National Geographic article either, without subscribing.

Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 2:27pm

Yes, Colorado has has its fires too.

You have ankle problems?

Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 2:26pm

With our health issues, we really can't think too far ahead. We want to stay in the house as long as we can look after it. I need help with housekeeping & pay someone to come in every 2 weeks to clean the big stuff. Rick has purchased a riding mower for the lawns.

I need hip replacement so can't walk until that gets done.....whenever that may be. I have to have the surgery in Prince George, but as that was such a big fire evacuee center, who knows how long it will be until I get the call? All our hospital patients were sent there, & are just coming back now.

Do you have any long-range plans, Patricia? Do any of us? Our forests begin to burn as well. 

I will be living 6 months with Craig and his family in Colorado and their burns have been ferocious. Few of us will be free of fire and/or smoke. I will be content in both places, especially now that my ankle seems not to want me to walk. I can stay in my chair and read my email.


Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 1:41pm

Apparently our fires will burn until spring now, & then we begin all over again!

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 1, 2017 at 12:49pm

I've looked for articles about "forest fires coulda been started by methane gas" and come up with nothing other than that site, which I can't open until and unless I buy a subscription. I have more than 40 years of National Geographics that I am packing up to give away. I never thought I would let those magazines out of my possession. What I thought would be a great benefit to my children and grandchildren has been replaced by computers and search engines. I have an expensive set of encyclopedias that have been similarly replaced by an information machine.  

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 1, 2017 at 12:45pm

...I forgot to add these scientists ignited these mini fireballs to confirm that it is gas...... maybe they get a rush out of it too...

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 1, 2017 at 12:42pm


I am sorry you can't open the National Geographic link. I am not a member either and I don't understand why it is not opening. But your article basically on the same subject of gasses being released into the atmosphere. The National Geographic basically explains that greenhouse affect has since melting ice age permafrost , more gasses are being released, specifically methane gas and thus in turn, contribute an accelerate rate of global warming. Some scientist were able to walk onto just recently unfrozen ground and stomp on it and will see and hear gasses bubbling out like mini volcanoes....

Forest fires in Alaska: A ticking climate time bomb

"About 33 miles northwest of Fairbanks along Highway 2, the verdant vegetation comes to an abrupt halt. Burnt tree stumps and scorched earth stretch from this point on, as far as the eye can see. It's deathly quiet. A cool wind blows, while here and there a few blades of bright green grass push up through the sodden black soil. And though this devastated landscape, runs an oil pipeline."
