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

oohhhhh, I want to hug that meowntain! :)

Yes Ruth, I agree with Joan.  I hope you are doing well and not here because you have something good going on!

Ruth, I hope the reason you have not been around is because you have an interesting project that keeps you involved. 

I do hope you feel well, that all the bad news doesn't get you down, and that you can keep your focus on all the wonderful things you send us. I don't won't to be selfish and pull you away from good project, however.

Or just Google trellis

Dallas, all these photos have great ideas, a wonderful way to find new and different ways to gardening. 

As to how the gourds grew up over the frame, it is very simple, as they grow, lace them up through support nets. I have never done this style, but I have built a frame and put netting on it to grow vine crops vertically. It is the same principle.

Dallas, based on principle, I would say the gourds, if they are living plants, had plenty of food (they are heavy feeders), and lots of water. My uncles grew giant pumpkins when I was a kid, and they always won at the county fair. They really kept them well fed and watered. They used straw from the barn which had lots of cow manure.

The gourd arbor looks natural to me, unlike the foodie site pictures. I'd love to touch the meowtain, but the alert kitties probably only stayed piled up a few seconds.

Thanks, all. Sorry I haven't been around.

I, too, think the KKK is horrible, as well as anyone that do such things to their fellow humans.

Tony, I love those beautiful gourds, squash, & melons on the arbor.  Saved that pix to remind me to try that if I ever get some land.

Wouldn't want to meet that Canadian street gang.
