Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 851
Latest Activity: 1 hour 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.

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Tuesday. 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

TheraminTrees doesn't release videos very often these days,  but when he does, they are positive GEMS.  Most recent of his works is the following, wherein he dismantles some of the common rebuttals atheist get from believers when we assert our…Continue

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

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Feb 15. 4 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

Was that a real insurance agent, or just a quack?

Doesn't sound a BIT like a real duck!

So it's not just me that hates that Kay jingle, Felaine!  And I will never buy car insurance from Progressive (ugh to Flo) or Geico. How can they afford 15% off when they spend so much money on commercials? But the real turn off is Cialis. I literally scream and hit another channel. The greatest invention ever? The remote control!

Carl, thanks for the video of Sally Rand. She is so pretty, still. It seems fan dancing is good for the body. 

Felaine, a lovely costume. What an exciting and interesting life you have had. You must have a treasure trove of memories to pull out as you advance through the Golden Years. Your bravery and stamina amaze me. 

Chris, I missed the pj party too, I didn't read my mail in time. We are in a long cold blast ... I hope my plants survive. We usually have a warming spell in December that kills so many things. Freezing and thawing puts undue pressure on plants. If some die, I will have more room for vegetables. 

Randy, isn't it amazing how old some of the celebrities of our  generations look. Sally Rand does not look her age. 

Mindy, exciting day for you. Can't wait to see the photos. I have found a trick to see most of your "disappeared" photos. If I don't see them I will ask for someone to send them to me because I don't want to miss out on anything.

Don't forget diapers, sanitary pads, shields, adult diapers, feminine hygiene, jock itch, incontinence, diarrhea/constipation, & hemorrhoids!!! All the focus is in the crotch somehow!!!!

My sister was watching the USC-UCLA game this past Saturday, and it seemed like nothing BUT car and jewelry comm'ls.  (When I'm using the computer , I'm sitting with my back to the TV, so I get to hear all the crap....and none of the bands.)

We both want to upchuck when we hear, "Every kiss begins with Kay;"  It's so OLD!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 3, 2014 at 10:26am

You're so right, Randy. I especially despise the luxury car ads with the new car in the driveway with a gigantic bow. Puke!

Comment by Randall Smith on December 3, 2014 at 7:30am

And do you notice the number of car/truck commercials this time of year? I know the market is strong now, but it's ridiculous to have so many commercials. Toss in car insurance ads, and it's almost a slam dunk. Don't forget jewelry and ED commercials as fill-ins. IIIEEEEEEE !!!!!!

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 2, 2014 at 10:42am

Yes Randy, It's Linda Ronstadt.  Probably my favorite singer.  Her greatest hits is the second CD in my player.  The first is "TRIO", with her, Emmylou Harris, and Dolly Parton.

The Everly Brothers is one of my favorite groups as well.  Didn't know that Phil had died.  He was 2 years older than me and Don is 4 years older than me.

Do they still make new Mustangs?  You can tell I'm not into cars.
