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.

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

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

Richard Dawkins, Growing Up in the Universe

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

From my experience, the exercise of arthritis joints has to be just the right amount.  Not too little and not too much.  

After months of very little excercise, I first started working in my garden a few days ago, and my knees and hips were quite painful after only an hour per day.  I was quite concerned.

Yesterday, I worked 2 hours, and the joints don't have much pain.  Looks like they are recovering from being lazy all winter.

Of course my joints are not bad yet, so I don't know about bad arthritis.

By gum, Kathy, I think you're on to something! Sure enough, I didn't pick up anything bigger than a fork on my vacation. I've always read that one must "exercise" the joints to prevent debilitating arthritis. Me thinks it's the opposite!

Carl l hope your sister is doing well. Give her a big hug from me when you see her.

Joan l enjoyed your typing. Reminds me of 'cat speak'.
Comment by k.h. ky on April 27, 2015 at 9:33pm
Randall is it possible your arthritis 'healed' because your thumb was allowed to rest and recover during the trip? I wonder how your sister would feel about that.

Bertold, speaking of comebacks when I was younger l would say outrageous things if I thought it was funny. Once, when an xray tech told me l needed to be undressed for the film, l looked right at him and dead panned 'You first'. Luckily he laughed about it.
