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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Thanks Ian.

If it's silver it will have some kind of hallmark.

http://www.925-1000.com/americansilver__Menu.html

There are, of course, British and European marks as well or just plain "Sterling" or "925".

Silver plate isn't marked like that but as EPNS or EPBM if it's marked at all.

Hope that helps.

Does anyone know how to tell if something is silver or silver plated without taking it to the shop? I seem to remember that a magnet isn't supposed to stick to silver but will to silver plate. Am I wrong again?
It's a nice old fruit bowl that dates from 1929. Apparently it's a presentation bowl because it's engraved with the dates April 10th 1907-April 10th 1932. Thanks all.

A pun to add a little fun to your day:

Hmm, That should have been a link to the mosaic museum. I think it leads to all the state museums in Istanbul so keep on searching. I did go round the Topkapi palace. Yes, a lot is beautiful but I also went round the harem which still has the atmosphere of the prison it was, a kind of human battery-chicken shed.

Lol Carl. My Mom said she read blue eyed people are more closely related. I don't know how that would work. I'll just call you Cousin Carl. ;)

Ian, the photos of the museum reveal such skills in color and imagery. The Islamic culture, so rich in art, has the capacity for great hate. I think religion teaches hate instead of community, division instead of cooperation, hubris instead of respect for diversity.
