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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Both from the local animal shelter and I'm very proud that they have grown into such wonderful friends.

For ALL CRANBERRY FANS!
********************

Jeff Smith's Cranberry Ice   
 
3 Cups fresh (or frozen) cranberries
3 Cups Water
1 1/2 Cups sugar (or 1 1/4 Cups Splenda)
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
 
Simmer the cranberries and water in a covered stainless steel pot until they are very tender, about 10 minutes.
Strain the berries, reserving the juice, and puree in a food processor with a little of the juice.
Add the remaining juice, sugar and lemon juice, and pulse a few times just until blended.
Chill in refrigerator, and then freeze in a Donvier-type ice cream maker.
********************* 
PS: I don't have a stainless steel pot of the right size, so I use one of my enamel-coated old DescoWare saucepans.  I think Pyrex would work, too...just don't use aluminum.  Felaine
 
PPS: The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American has pages and pages of cranberry recipes, from snacks to main dishes, sides, and desserts.
 
Beats a side of god swill any day! (Even though The Frug started out as a minister...)

Oh, LA! The husband of the manager of the Cat Hotel played Timon (and other roles) in the stage production of "The Lion King" in Hollywood. 

They met when they were both in "Cats" on Broadway...she was the second dancer/singer to play Victoria, the little white cat, and he was a "swing boy"...filled in many different roles, but mostly Mephistopholes. Claudia played Victoria for NINE YEARS!  I can't imagine doing the same show every night for that long.

Derek, Mere-Cat, lol! My daughter and I love plays-on-words.  I will have to tell her that one. :)~ Melinda

And, yes, I know that Timon in Disney was a meerkat!

Comment by Derek Bly on September 8, 2012 at 11:42am

Sk8eycat, one of former cats was named Timon. My son, who was in Grade 4 at the time, and my daugther, in Grade 3, found this very small kitten at the playground. They checked with people in the neighbourhood and no one claimed ownership, so he came to live with us.

He was so tiny that I just had to name him Timon because he was a mere-cat! Disney fans should get that and be groaning in unison!

I meant Derek not Tony.  Lost my mind already today!

Comment by booklover on September 8, 2012 at 11:38am

Oh Tony!  lol  ;)  I am always singing silly stuff which I think is hysterical and my 18-yr. old son does not. ha ha ha

Derek, many years ago when I still worked part time at the Cat Hotel, we had a repeat "guest" whose name was URL.  That was long before I had a computer with a modem, if you can imagine that.  I had to ask her human what the name meant...the first thing he said was that he was a computer geek (HE said "geek") at Disney.  THEN he explained what URL meant, and that his particular URL was always dragging strange stuff home when she could sneak outside.
