Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 852
Latest Activity: 2 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)

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

We will miss you, sk8eycat but appreciate the contribution you are making to homeless pets.

Note to all my friends: If I seem to be more absent than usual lately it's because I'm doing my bit for The Pet Press this week.  I'm not a touch typist, so I have to work slowly to make sure I get addresses and phone numbers absolutely correct for all these rescue orgs that want their fundraisers and adoption events publicized.  I think it's the least I can do for all the hardworking people who find forever homes for all the dogs, cats, and other pets that have been dumped in shelters ... that don't have room for them.

Got it?  Good!

The university library I work in owns "The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents"! I checked WorldCat and one of the Harper Collins editions is in over 1400 libraries can send you a copy to read, Patricia :)

Patricia, you can always request the book through your library's interlibrary loan service. It might take a couple of weeks to arrive, but it is a free service.

And, Ian...woot! I love young adult novels. That book is now on my "to-read" list! I enjoyed "Poppy" (Tales of Dimwood Forest, #1) by Avi. A quick read at 179 pages and Poppy is a mouse...

Good one, Patricia. Have you read "The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents"?
