Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 852
Latest Activity: 4 hours ago

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

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Feb 15. 4 Replies

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

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

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Feb 6. 20 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

For the last few podcasts, Seth Andrews has been alluding to a new literary effort he's been working on.  Well, the cat is out of the bag ... or perhaps I should say, the cow is out of the barn!  Seth's new opus is entitled: Sacred Cows: a…Continue

Living in the Answers

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

Careful with the ambien.  But I'm sure you know that.

Carl, I've been without service for a month. Glad your surgery went well, whatever it was,and wish you all the best.  ky

Hello my friends. Just checking in. My surgery went well without any problems. I had an excellent group of doctors and nurses who took great care of me. I'm now recuperating with my pain pills and ambien.....and no heavy lifting for four to six weeks. All is going as well as can be expected. Thanks for all your well-wishes.

Love Pat Condell!

Carl must be ok as I saw him on the humor page.

Got a chuckle today......I booked the go-bus to do a little shopping, & used my walker now that the scooter is down for winter. When the driver came to pick me up, she exclaimed, "Now WHERE did you find a purple walker??!!!"

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 10, 2014 at 10:55am

Thanks Mindy.  I like Condell's quote.

Eager to hear how the operation went, Carl. Positive vibes sent your way.

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 8, 2014 at 3:51pm

Carl, my thoughts go with you. Your medical team, well trained and caring, present excellent odds that you get the care you need. 

Comment by Ian Mason on December 8, 2014 at 3:00pm

All the best with your op, Carl. Will you be listening to cool swing music during? Thanks for the sounds.

Comment by Patricia on December 8, 2014 at 2:15pm
