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.

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 1. 9 Replies

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

I forgot.....these are my sleep phones which plug into the cd player.

Patricia, this is kind of ironic, but when I was discovering sleep music on YouTube I came upon Gregorian Chants.  This one in particular (Collage of old Gregorian music in Latin) is very relaxing and soothes me to sleep.  Basically, it's sacred Medieval Catholic music sung in Latin. 

Learning about this type of music was part of my music history studies in college, so I have an appreciation for its beautiful musicality.  I didn't grow up Catholic but perhaps, if I did, this music would prompt bad memories and scary dreams.  Luckily that's not the case for me.  It does the job.

Thanks Patricia.

Comment by Patricia on January 10, 2014 at 6:23pm

I have more too but I think these are enough to look at & leads you in the right direction for the stuff not high priced.

One site wanted $70 plus $20 shipping for 3 cds!!!! Not a chance!!!!

Comment by Patricia on January 10, 2014 at 6:21pm

Idaho, I'm doing quite well with these......

I got some from ebay, & amazon, & there are a couple of sites to get free downloads

cantonbecker.com  & look for Space Lullaby.....I do really well with that one.

The there is relaxmeonline.com, where you can purchase, but he also offers some free downloads.

Hope this helps.

Patricia, what low priced delta theta wave aid would you recomend to start with?

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 10, 2014 at 5:07pm

Those ice crushes are interesting, but would be a slow-motion distress for the owners of the houses they trash.

I'm thrilled FA!!!

These things do work & am very glad I brought the subject up for you. I learn so much here & I hope I can help with someone else's learning too. So far, I have 8 or so & will get more as I like variety.

I wear the sleep headphones & have a portable cd player behind my pillow.....the cats don't like it on my night table & knock it over, so of course had to do as told.......hahahaha!
