Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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 Feb 16. 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

Joan, I posted this in the Kitty Group:

************

I think he's attacking his reflection in that shiny, tall kitchen waste basket thingie.

One of our (orange tiger) cats did that "walk" many years ago, when I was holding a tiny toy mouse...one made of rabbit fur....above his head.  I never have a camera handy when things like that happen.
****************
His name was Lyle;  I called him that so he could say his own name.

sk8eycat, a great kitty video! I've never seen a cat do THAT!

Chris, I do hope your b-i-l's convalescent home stay helps him and relieves you. What is the procedure when a person is no longer able to live alone or at his/her home? Are there facilities that he can go into? Does the government pay those bills? Not to ask about your personal situation, but as a societal issue when a person doesn't have money resources. 

When I visited a home in Hamburg, Germany, it was nationally owned and financed, I think. At least that is what I understood them to mean. It included a children's home as well. I enjoyed my visit there and found the aged and young fit well together with proper planning and policies and age-appropriate programs.

Thanks, Spud.  Now I'm twitching a bit, too.  Went online to find out how long this is going to go on..."7 - 21 Days"  is what they said.  GACK!  I have a cat-sitting job starting the 11th.....

Sorry Elaine.

Comment by sk8eycat on February 1, 2014 at 1:11pm

Oh, good, Mindy!  (About the heart monitor results)

Elaine is still having explosions.  :>(  I hate it when that happens.

So...this is the cutest kitty video I've seen in a while.  I posted it in Ailurophiles, but I thought I'd post it here too, and then go back to bed.
********************

This kiity is adorable, but the really FUNNY part is in the last quarter of the video:

Comment by Idaho Spud on February 1, 2014 at 11:03am

No, Mindy, I don't think you did mention the results from searing your heart monitor were normal, and didn't mention the results from wearing it either : )

In any case, it's good news, and I'm glad for you.

Comment by Plinius on February 1, 2014 at 12:51am

Good morning! Such strong people you are when experiencing embarrassing health problems!

Brother-in-law went to a convalescent home to learn a lot of things all over again, like walking. We are still working in his packed apartment, cleaning out the Augean stable to find the scaredy cat. When we find her, she will go to animal care, it is impossible to put her with our cats.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 1, 2014 at 12:03am

Good to get your news Mindy! And a good weekend to you and all on A/N. 

sk8eycat , interesting groupings. I can recognize some; we are predictable are we not?! 

Patricia, clever creation story. It makes as much sense as the garden version. 

Carl, how you doing? You have been working hard, I suspect; and I miss you when you aren't chiming in. 

Napoleon, repeat after me, "theology is nonsense".
