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

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

Thanks Joan!

I received a note from him:

"It's been a tough week, but I'm OK. Hard work, and workplace hassles, more than anything physical.   Sometimes people are....  bad.  But I'm OK.  Most of that is workplace politics, which I hate.  Whatever will happen will happen.  I don't know why people are so obnoxious."

ha ha Ian!  Have a good weekend Friends. :)

The pies these days are made with meat. Eels, hot or jellied (my prefered) are eaten separate. There was a time when you could buy live eels too.

That is real food that helps your body, Joan and Sk8eycat! I have been on paleofood - low-carb no ready-made food - for two years now, and  feel much better because of it.

Ian, I went to the link, too, and I thought,  "EEL pie?!!? Eww."  What does it really taste like with eels?  Fishy, or savory with herbs?

My dad used to make a New England favorite; Codfish Patties, but they are about 50% mashed potato, and deep fried.  I loved them.

My all-time favorite fish is halibut, oven-baked with just salt & pepper, or smoked, but it's become more expensive than Filet Mignon. 

I like barbecued (slightly smoky) salmon filet, but the last time I ate salmon I had a gout attack (same with shrimp... dammit!).  I will avoid ANYthing rather than have my left foot swell up like a boxing glove.

Ian, I know, those dishes eaten as a child growing up, then abandoning thinking they were old fashioned, only to be reclaimed as we age and eaten as comfort food, bring pleasures that modern foods do not. 

The crash of the eel population sounds serious. I wonder what caused it. I have not eaten eel pie and mash; we did have pasties with left over roasted beef, potatoes and vegetables. They are good!

Mindy, that's sweeter than anything Hubble has produced.

Bangers and mash, bubble and squeak are things I grew up with and sometimes make myself when I'm feeling nostalgic.

Here's something I like to indulge in when in England:
