Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 839
Latest Activity: 3 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.

From the man who brought us Cassini and Muppets on the same day, Loren! Yeah, Right!

I tried to put a hat-tip in here but 1) couldn't find one I liked; 

2) I don't know how to imbed it if I found it.

I love the Muppets version of Bohemian Rhapsody Loren! Thanks for the reminder, I hadn't seen it in a long time ! Made me smile.:)

Chris, I think you may need to realign your rain dance ... we got it here in Cleveland!

In OTHER news:

Dr. Teeth, Dr. Teeth, will you do the fandango?!?  Actually ... yes he will!

Good pic, Loren. Thanks. Our lovely, fragile little dot in the universe.

*late afternoon, still doing the rain dance*

I can use that thunderstorm, booklover, send it this way please!

And yes, these NASA pictures are wonderful. They don't have to be fuzzy to keep the illusions.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 23, 2013 at 9:05am

Thanks, Loren.  All I can say is, "amazing!"

BTW, it's funny how much clarity there is in these space photos, yet any photos taken here on earth of Nelly Loch Ness, Bigfoot, UFO's, etc. at a much closer distance are all fuzzy and out of focus. 

Comment by Loren Miller on July 23, 2013 at 8:38am

Indeed it is, Carl, a mere 898 million miles away.  Just the way the "center of the universe" should look, right?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 23, 2013 at 8:31am

Loren, is earth the small white dot, lower RH corner?

Comment by booklover on July 23, 2013 at 8:25am

Neat picture Loren!  Good Morning Everyone :)  I actually got to turn the AC off and open the windows.  It feels great!  We had a short thunderstorm here last night, and it must have chased the heat away!  You're right Ian, you have to laugh!!  Have a good Tuesday. :)

It would seem as though Cassini has been taking more snaps, including one of the old home town / planet:


Did you smile when Cassini said, "Say 'CHEESE!'"?
