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

Goodnight all

Ruth, I saw your first piece and am really struck with how good it is. You are on to something good, and I expect we all are going to benefit by the wisdom you pass on to us. I have not been able to access my Tweeter account and haven't taken the time to figure out why I can't open it. When I do, I shall surely check out your site. 
I recognize the amount of time it takes to make selections and do the tasks necessary to get everything working; the end product proves the value of that effort.

Thanks, Joan. A bit of low energy off and on and spending lots of time making the last animated gif for Eco-Logical. The most time consuming part is finding/making good images. It took me three days to collect and modify those eleven little frames. I still struggle to find appropriate royalty free images, and don't always succeed.

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!

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 11, 2012 at 5:44pm

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.
