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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Richard Dawkins, Growing Up in the Universe

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 14. 2 Replies

Here is an oldie, the young Richard Dawkins teaching kids about the universe. I especially like the one demonstrating how the eye evolved. This should answer those who believe it was impossible to evolve an eye. Continue

Yes, Mindy, my eyes are blue. As Jack Benny used to say, "as blue as the thumb on a cross-eyed carpenter."

Sounds good Ian! And my skin is slowly calming down too.

I looked for meteors and didn't see the first one.

Randall, 1) I love Indianapolis!  It's been more than 50 years since my last visit, but I always enjoyed the city and the people.

2) No meteor-viewing here last night; we've had a heavy overcast for 2+ days (it's overcast and chilly this morning, too).  *sigh* It is a relief from the triple-digit temperatures we had last week! 

We have quite a bit of light pollution even on clear nights, but there are places in our back yard that are sheltered enough to see the night sky in all its glory.

It's nice at this time of year, Chris. A comfortable 20-24 degrees with occasional clouds. Could sit outside until about 9 in the evening drinking tea and eating cake.

I'd love to see the meteor shower, but the light pollution is horrible here! On a good night you can see the Big Dipper or Orion, but that's about it.

Comment by Randall Smith on May 24, 2014 at 7:28am

Did anyone try to watch the highly anticipated meteor shower last night (this morning, the 24th)?

Comment by Randall Smith on May 24, 2014 at 7:20am

Wow--nice to see that others enjoy jazz like I do! I didn't know S. Grapelli played piano (violin, of course). Sorry I can't listen to your offering, Felaine. No sound card. L.A. used to have a great jazz station (I lived in Pomona for 7 years--'66-'73). Indianapolis has a PM jazz/AM classical station I can get. Hurray!

Carl, I like Patricia and That Happy Feeling.

I don't care for blue but I used to wear almost nothing but blue shirts because blue makes my skin tone look better.

Joan, when you mentioned gold, it reminded me that I also very much like copper color.  While I'm at it, I'll say that I like turquoise also.

Comment by Plinius on May 24, 2014 at 2:24am

I love the virtual tour of the Topkapi, Ian! Those wonderful blue and green tiles! Istanbul has been on my wishlist for a long time, but I'll never go there in summer,
