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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Joan, glad it worked. If you liked those pics, I put them up in Digital Life on Geek and Nerd Haven. Many more pics there, just stuff that caught my eye, for either content, color, subject matter, whatever. Come on over and peek at a few. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Ian, The squash ducks delight me. Thanks.

Booklover, great photo of that huge dog! The bricks suspiciously look  like China where women went out every day to sweep streets with a corn-broom. There were no flies. Dog piles were shoveled into honeybuckets.

Joseph, I "paused" and "muted" and I could think of nothing else that  works. 
Tony! Your hypothesis works! Thanks! In addition, the pictures you posted are keepers!

Joan, If you are still having trouble turning off the music, just pause the player!

I love those squash-birds!  People are so clever!

Some more things that look like something else:

It does look like a bear Ian! lol  Can you imagine cleaning up after that dog?!

Comment by Ian Mason on January 15, 2013 at 8:09am

How nice to be among realistic and positive people :-)

That dog could earn a fortune as a stand-in for a dancing bear.

Thanks for the Mental Health Awareness pic, Napoleon! I understand more and more of anxiety disorder now that I've lived all these years with someone who suffers from it. It's often a heavy struggle to lead a life that looks ordinary and even boring to some people - but we know better than that - and I'm happy to be reminded that we're not alone.
