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 Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 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

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

Please send snow, rain, wind, anything but drought to California! 

Now for the GOOD news...I've lost another 8 lbs...down to 145 for the first time since I can't remember when.  That's a total of  40 lbs I've lost in the last 2+ years without backsliding.

Now, if I could only get rid of this effing gout attack!!!!  My back surgery 4 years ago didn't hurt this much.  OWTCH!

Mindy, glad to learn the MRI gave god news. I do hope the cause is found. At least a differential diagnosis is a beginning. 

You must have received our snow clouds. We had a beautiful snow dump one day - gone the next. Ground is almost clear now. We expect more snow tonight. And wind.

Something I stumbled onto on YouTube and thought was worth sharing:

These scenes fill me with awe, even as I understand the implication of the events. Interesting to see the gas guzzler hummer photo below. Do we not realize what we are doing to ourselves?

A stunning event and a symptom of our enviromental problems.

Thanks for those 29 images, Napoleon!

Those 29 news images are stunning, Napoleon.

Here's something I found on FB

Napoleon, the deaf boy, hearing for the first time, reveals a real sense of wonder. It is easy to take our senses for granted and this little boy got a real charge!
