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.

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

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

hi! how is everyone doing?

Comment by Loren Miller just now Delete Comment Some of us here know the Englishman Stephen Fry, perhaps from his appearance in the movie, Sherlock Holmes, Game of Shadows, or for his brilliant performance in the 2009 Intelligence-Squared debate, where he appeared "my trusty Hitch[ens] by my side," and basically wiped the floor with their opponents on the subject: "The catholic church is a force for good in the world."

Well, here, poor Stephen gets the tables turned on him on his own show - QI - though somehow, I'm not certain he minds too much!

Ian, I left a reply to your post in the "NEWS" group. 

In the myth, the good big guy isn't supposed to hit the bad little guy FIRST.  If at all.

Just my twopenn'th of opinion re the big issue in the news.

It seems to me that countries continue to believe in their own myths, no matter what evidence there is to the contrary.

America: if the "good" cowboy stands up to and shoots the "baddies" at high noon on Main Street the grateful townsfolk will come running to thank him as their problems are now solved forever.

Britain: send in a gunboat or a few planes, fire off a few shells and the ignorant "darkies" will run back to the hills and stop causing trouble.

Denmark: the issue doesn't matter, just as long as we get picked as a makeweight by the Big Boys for their team. We've been noticed!

Oh, one more thing. Poison gas in Damascus? That's what Winston Churchill suggested in 1919 as a method for keeping the uppity natives in their place

ha ha Carl!

Oh well Felaine!  Just don't do it again. ;) lol

Joan, thanks for the sweet offer!  He uses Bayer Contour Next.  The tester sends the results directly to his insulin-pump!  Pretty cool!  I know there are many different kinds, but you're such a sweetheart for offering!  What lovely people there are on Hang with Friends.  True Friends!

Single payer is definitely the way to go. The nonsense of it all ... I have type 2 Diabetes and I control it with Rx, diet and exercise. I don't need to test unless I don't feel good and then I usually find my blood sugar is too high. An easy fix, and I get back on track. I know when I need to check

My medical insurance sends me a new supply of strips and other supplies every month. It is usual for me to use three or four in a month. If you can use my style of strips, I will send them to you gladly. I suspect mine are mickey mouse compared to what your son needs.

LOL sk8eycat.  We all have our moments of relapse from time to time.  I've been known to yell, "Oh God" during sex. 

Comment by sk8eycat on September 3, 2013 at 5:46pm

Mindy, I did something out of character a little while ago...I sent a friend a pomegranate e-notecard with a prayer on it for Rosh Whatever.  Pomegranates are an integral part of the second day's dinner/ceremony, or something, and Lori takes this stuff seriously, so I thought I'd "make nice" on her.

I really surprised myself.  (And damaged my Lucretia MacEvil image.)
