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

Oh what cute pics! I love the baloney cat one! Just love it Booklover! Congrats on your run Ian!
Checking out the You Tube video Patricia! Thanks!

What great pictures! Thanks, all of you. Me, tired but satisfied. Just ran a ½ marathon through some lovely countryside round a lake. The second half turned into a bit of a duel with a very good-looking young woman. I had no objection to her running in front of me :) She was rather amused with my habit of "singing" along to the music on my MP3. (The Who, Quadrophenia. Love, reign o'er me) I did manage a spurt in the last 3 km and came in a couple of minutes ahead of her and she came up and congratulated me afterwards. It's these small but pleasant episodes that make life so precious, I think.

Another beautiful autumn day, it is 9:00 AM, 50 degrees, perfect weather for doing preparation for winter chores, the two compost bins are empty and ready for this year's garden cleanup. This is paradise.

If a cat and mouse can get along, why can't humans?

Ian your brother is really talented to make that for his dog. Thanks for the Dr. Pepper link Tony and the cartoon. Yeah - most people go for the comforting lies Tony - so true!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Grinning Cat, I sure wish they had the lyrics printed. I didn't understand very many words, and the audience seemed entertained. 

Thanks for the parody, it was fun, even if not intelligible.

Good one, Tony! That summarizes so much.
