Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 13 hours ago

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

Journey is a beauty! As far as I know, she has a tabby-pattern that has a strong relation to wildcats.

The photo is Journey on top of the kids easel in the family room. She climbs walls, curtain, cupboards, and has killed the pet rat, gerbil, and hamster.  We secured the pets in cages and thought all was well, however Journey figured out ways to get into the cages and do her dastardly deeds. 

I don't think they will get anything smaller than a goat next time.

There was a little mouse leaving its black specks from kitchen to bathroom and seemed to like the room I slept in at Laura's. I could hear him/her climbing around on the inner springs. The dogs and cats knew there was something that smelled good, but they couldn't catch it. 

We brought in super mouser, Journey, and the only thing she caught was eating my nose, ear, hair, toes, eyebrows and biting my body through the blankets. She is very young and very physically active. I suppose I got some sleep the two nights we had her in for the big hunt, but not very much. So we returned her to her home at my grand-daughter's where she does a tremendous job with mice, moles and crickets. 

Her markings are quite remarkable, very similar to Bengal cat breeds. As far as we know, she is a farm cat from farm cats. 

Here are some Bengal cat markings:

We looked at four Mummers Fancy Brigades and deleted the rest, too boring. Hercules is getting to us in Phila now.

Hippo Gnu Ears ebry-buddies!

Did anyone watch the Rose Parade?  I slept till 11:30 AM.  It was noisy around here last night for hours...sounded like a war zone.  Whatever happened to churches ringing their bells at midnight?  They ought to do something useful once in a while.

Carl, happy to learn you feel better and rested. 

2014! a great sound rolling off the tongue! Changes ahead will keep us up on our toes. There will no boring days ahead.

Thanks Ian. Reposting Patrick Steward as Jean-Luc Picard. He knows the difference between wishing and thinking with action.

Ian and Mindy - those are great.

Happy New Year everyone !!
