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.

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

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat on Thursday. 13 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

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

Jerry Lewis was good in "My Friend Irma."  Period.  At least I thought so at the time.   I was 9 years old.....

Comment by Grinning Cat on Wednesday

Joan, thanks for sharing that clip!

There's a discussion in "How To Do It!" about embedding videos, with instructions on specifying start and stop times if you want to highlight just one section.

Comment by Patricia on Wednesday

Jim Carrey seems to be rather idiotic too.

Comment by booklover on Wednesday
When I was 4 my mom was pregnant with my sister. She asked me if the baby was a girl, what did I think we should name her. My answer was Carol Burnett! My second choice was Lisa. My mom went with that one. Lol

Never heard of the spoof Fresno, but then we didn't get a big variety of programs in Canada, even though most tv was from the US.

Comment by sk8eycat on Wednesday

Carol Burnett was funny, AND she had a great supporting cast, and didn't hog all the laughs for herself.

Did you ever see the mini-series she did for CBS...."Fresno"?  A spoof of "Dynasty" and other prime time soaps  It kinda flopped, but I thought it was hilarious.

The whole thing is on YouTube somewhere.  I thought it was a riot because I've driven through Fresno too many times.  (If they'd done something like that here when we first moved to Burbank, it would have been just as crazy. There was a huge vineyard and winery just 1 block up the hill from us....tacky, tacky, tacky.)

Grossest and most puke inducing slapstick of all - Jerry Lewis.

Comment by sk8eycat on Wednesday

Lucille Ball was a talented woman, and I hated seeing her play an idiot.  I also never understood WHY "Ricky" loved her.

THEN Hollywood made one of the biggest mistakes ever....they starred her in "Mame" when she was visibly too old to play Beauregard's mother.   Gaaaahhh!

Comment by Patricia on Wednesday

I hated the yelling & Jackie Gleason had a strong resemblance to dear ol' dad.

I never thought Lucy & her waaaaahhhhhhh comedy were funny. Carol Burnett was my favorite!

Comment by Joan Denoo on Wednesday

I want to share the first 27:47 minutes of this video. How do I do that?
