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.

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

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

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 1. 9 Replies

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

That's cool about your husband's trains Patricia. I love trains. :). I would like to take a vacation going by train!

Those tiny things look like fun.

The club my son is in flies in gymnasiums through winters, but that's not enough room for the larger models. Helicopters are ok & he has a couple of really tiny things. My husband has the HO trains so the both of them almost have the mini transport hobby covered.

I never flew if the wind was more than about 1 mile per hour.  Even the best of the group that I was part of never flew if the wind was more than about 4 miles per hour.

I would like to fly again.  My gas model has a wingspan of 6.5 feet and I have a glider with the same wingspan.  Also a few small electric ones.

My son also has model gas planes, but it was too windy that day to try to take off. One of his planes has about a 4 ft. wingspan, so it's rather large......with plenty of repairs to it.

I think a trip in one of them would be a dream, Felaine.

Comment by sk8eycat on April 29, 2014 at 12:44pm

It really did remind me slightly of flying dreams I have had...only there was no motor or wings in my dreams.  Just myself dancing above the ground. 

I think part of the beauty of flying in those airplanes is that their average speed is only about 50 mph...that's a lot slower than most people drive anymore (and one reason I quit driving)... and the open cockpits, of course.

Looks like it would be a nice plane to own Felaine.  Beautiful scenery in that video.
