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.

Comment by Patricia on Friday

Seeing is great, huh Carl?

I didn't see Joan's post either Felaine, even though I got an email for something.

Comment by Ian Mason on Friday

Agreed, Felaine. There are happy milestones to be celebrated. The bad ones should be warnings.

Carl, that's great! If only science was taught like that in school.

Comment by Joan Denoo on Friday

OK, Felaine, let's designate some dates of celebrations worthy of our attention. I think I have these dates correct. Feel free to correct my mistakes, add and/or subtract whatever you feel is worthy of note. 

1980 - The World Health Organization (WHO) certified that smallpox had been eradicated from the planet in 1980.

03-26-1953 - Polio vaccine discovered.

04-14-2003 - Human Genome Project Completed

07-04-1997 - Mars Pathfinder spacecraft landed.

07-20-1969 - 1st moon landing.

08-20-1977 - Voyager 2 launched.

09-02-1945 - Japan's surrender in 1945.

09-05-1977 - Voyager 1 launched.

Sk8eycat, my niece who was a biology major in college found it and passed it along.  I love how it's full of both humor and facts.  That's a great way to teach science.  

Comment by sk8eycat on Friday

I have an e-mail notice that Joan posted something in here about "faith," but I can't find it.  Has it been moved, or deleted?

Comment by sk8eycat on Friday

Oh, Carl, that's SO cleverly written and narrated.  How did you find it?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on Friday

Hey, folks.  Here's your science lesson for today.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on Friday

Well, my new avatar picture shows a new addition to my everyday life:  glasses.  I'm really glad I have them as now I can read small print and also see things clearly in the distance.  Now.....getting used to bifocals for the first time ever!
