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.

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

Times sure have changed.  I even remember being 5 or 6 years old and walking to the corner pharmacy with a neighbor friend.  Her mother would pin an envelope to her shirt filled with money and a list for the pharmacist.  We would leave the store with the purchased items......including a carton of cigarettes!

sk8eycat, I share your warm memories of the old mom and pop grocery stores and tradespeople. Those days were special. Some of them continue and I like to support them, even though their prices have to be higher because they don't get the price breaks the big stores get. You got lots of service out of your "1979 Pontiwreck"! 

Do you have Community Supported Agriculture in your area? I subscribed a few years ago, but the local ones closed their doors for lack of support. I liked the produce, it was freshly picked and boxed up according to the size of my weekly order.

Felaine, I agree with Carl about you amusing names for things.  Pontiwreck is a good one.

Randy, I'm glad you've got a new companion.  Should be good for you as well as Dot.

Glad to hear about your new boxer-lab mix. Have you named her yet, Randall?

Interesting tale of the nice A/C guy and stingy plumber, sk8eycat. We get contractors through Angie’s list, because they’re rated and you give feedback that others see.

Hi, Frank. How about a picture of your location a bit larger than the icon? Are you on an island or a boat?

Well Carl, I think there is a fine for posting multiple times... :D
Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 3, 2014 at 2:21pm

I'm sorry to post multiple times like this,,,,but I remember something I wanted to say after it's too late.

Sk8eycat, you crack me up with all your alternate names for everything.  Pontiwreck.  LOL

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 3, 2014 at 2:19pm

Randall, what great news!  Enjoy your new companion.  Dot is very lucky.

Sk8eycat, my daughters water heater, air conditioning, stove, and pump on the pool all went out on the Friday of the fourth of July weekend.
Talk about bad luck.
