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

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

Seth Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Feb 6. 20 Replies

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

Seth Andrews' New Book, "Sacred Cows" (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia Feb 6. 7 Replies

For the last few podcasts, Seth Andrews has been alluding to a new literary effort he's been working on.  Well, the cat is out of the bag ... or perhaps I should say, the cow is out of the barn!  Seth's new opus is entitled: Sacred Cows: a…Continue

Living in the Answers

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Patricia Jan 18. 13 Replies

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

Carl!  That IS cold!

PS: Pumpkin is doing his morning exercises.  ie: Lying in a patch of sunlight on the floor, and scooting over when the patch moves and he's halfway into shade. 

Fred just got back in bed with my sister...we are ALL night owls.

Hmmmm.  Good idea. I think I'll go back to my own bed.

Nice one, Mindy. Sorry to hear about the dog though.

Happy birthday Pumkin. Take good care of your human for us.

Oh, je vous remercie! Je vais devoir marquer cette site.

I avoir un ami qui sait russe, il était un "espion" armée qui écoutait sur ​​leurs émissions de radio pendant la Guerre Froide.

J'aime jouer avec les langues, mais je ne suis couramment l'anglais. Honteux, n'est-ce pas?

Whoopie!  This is so much FUN!  Now, if there was only some way to translate Feline...they do have a large vocabulary of vocalizations...and body language, too.

Announcement!  My Little Baby Boy...aka Pumpkin...just turned 15 years old some time this week.  I don't know the exact date, but when I was working part time at the Cat Hotel, one of our regular clients brought in two feral female cats in January 1999. Each had a litter of kittens whose eyes were just starting to open; Pumpkin was the only orange one,and I wanted him.  BUT at that time I had 3 cats and two of them hated the third one.  But for the past 2 1/2 years (and for the rest of his lively life) he's mine!  All mine!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY BOY!

Thanks for the link, Napoleon. I can still be amazed at the positions cats can get into.

Good one, Ruth. That put a smile on my face too.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 6, 2014 at 8:25pm

The sleep-fu cats are great, Napoleon. Thanks.

This gave me chuckle. Hope you like it too.

Comment by sk8eycat on January 6, 2014 at 7:38pm

Oh, Napoléon, Merci de signaler cette URL de Panda. Je veux caresser tous ces chats magnifiques.
PS: I don't remember most of the French language I learned in school...I cheat... use Babelfish to translate for me. But I love those kitties, anyway.  I wanted to pet their silky tummies....

Thank you!
