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

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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

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

Richard Dawkins, Growing Up in the Universe

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 14. 2 Replies

Here is an oldie, the young Richard Dawkins teaching kids about the universe. I especially like the one demonstrating how the eye evolved. This should answer those who believe it was impossible to evolve an eye. Continue

Good afternoon friends!

A lot of funny and heartening things. Thanks all. Needed something good to come home to after working the night when the clocks go back here.

Chris, that Florence Jenkins video actually made me enjoy opera for a change.  Not the voice...but the pics!  I've gotta Save that one!

THIS is  the photo I was looking for when I found the one of the man with the adorable kitten:

Love is love...   I'm glad that there are now organizations that try to help homeless people keep their pets.  Or let the animals keep their people.

Lovely picture, Sk8eycat! And have you noticed that the rich sell a surplus, the poor almost always share it.

Comment by sk8eycat on October 28, 2012 at 1:15am

I was Searching for a different photo, but I could NOT resist this one:

"I admire people who barely have anything, but share it nevertheless."

A lovely dog, Melinda! (And I'm also a cat person.)

Wonderful to hear you talk about the quiet life! It's the best, but I don't often mention it in general because people ask stupid questions.

The dark and stormy night made me think of this:

Thanks, Joan! I did find that YouTube link earlier today, but I couldn't turn the volume up loud enough to hear it because my sister was watching a football game at the time.  *ahem!* MUCH more impotrtant...to her.

I'm rereading all my Mercedes Lackey books because I'm so tired of all the political hoo-raw (and I've already sent in my ballot).  I need a dose of fantasy sometimes to clear my mind.

Thanks, again, and thanks to everyone else who have been posting LOL pics.  I love them all!

The dog is terrified of that cat!!
