Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: 5 hours ago

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

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

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

Thanks for the creationism cartoon, booklover.

In this retirement home for veterans, I'm way out of the closet. I might have bullied the xians who know me into keeping quiet; they don't give me any lines I can answer with zingers like that.

Life can be so hard; ho, ho, ho.

Carl, I'm happy you're feeling better. Flu is running rampant now. I stay away from everyone as much as possible.
Mindy, I too am glad the holidays are over.
Joan, you sound much better than a few days ago.
Hello to everyone else.

Ain't that the truth!

I enjoy having remodel work going on in and around my house. I like the smell of sawed wood, the sound of machines and the chatter of craftsmen. I guess it is because my Dad was a carpenter and we had all kinds of tools and machines and projects going on all the time.

Patricia I enjoyed your water skiing photo. Real teamwork. ! 

Raising huskies and malemute must have taken a lot of energy, I was around them when I lived in Kenai, Alaska and visited the native and homesteader families there who raced them.

Carl, your Sidney Bechet recording sounds great. I saved a playlist of his performances. Very pleasant background music.

We SHOULD be consistently well below freezing at this time of year, but its not happening! We're getting freezing rain, & that is almost unheard of here.

-2*C, feels like -4*C

-4*C, feels like -8*C, overnight.

Back to normal again! Here we had two winterish days and now we're back in the rainy season. Statistics on the weather in 2014 say that the temperature was 1° C. higher than the average.

Joan, your movie clip inspires me to post a little bit more of Sidney Bechet.

Comment by Ian Mason on January 2, 2015 at 12:55am

Ah, Paris. I haven't been there since a dismal February in 1981. One of the places I must re-visit. It looks so nice in the sunshine. Thanks.
