Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 885
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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Donald R Barbera Sep 27. 5 Replies

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

Chris, congratulations on another trip around the sun with a loved one by your side.  That's great!

If you can hardly walk in the streets because of the wind it must be scary to fly too, FA.

All is good by me.  I was at home earlier today when the bad weather went through.  The wind was the worst part.  It actually sounded like an arctic blizzard, but it was pouring rain and 68 degrees outside.  Afterward, the rain subsided but the winds continued to howl.  My street was flooded curb to curb, but two thoughtful neighbors got their rakes and unclogged the sewer grates which were blocked with leaves.

As I was enjoying the last of my coffee in the cozy comfort of my abode, the phone rang.  It was work.  Ugh!!  I got called to fly to Washington DC and back.  Earlier flights were cancelled but this one was going (that was the plan) and they needed a crew.  Walking to the bus stop was difficult.  Winds were so strong I had to lean forward, head down and force myself forward. 

But in the end, a bunch of happy people made it to DC instead of getting stranded in Chicago, and a second group got to leave DC and come back with us to Chicago.  Home sweet home on a Sunday night.

Thanks Patricia. I don't remember her, but then, I am not a movie fan. She surely could expend a lot of energy dancing.
I hope to hear from those in tornado storms and they are doing well.

Thanks Patricia, I'm all right! Celebrated another completed circle around the sun with partner - I can't believe it's 36 years that I moved in with him - seems like yesterday.

Tony, do you know who is the woman dancing with Jerry? 

WOW! what energy!

I know he's not everyone's cup of tea, but I do enjoy this video.
