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.

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…Continue

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Tuesday. 4 Replies

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Seth Andrews has been through the mill as it comes to dealing with those who insist that their faith in a deity is not just valid but necessary to their lives and to all lives.  Having dealt with that gauntlet and come out the other side an atheist,…Continue

NBC News Gives Ken Ham Free Advertising

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Jul 2. 13 Replies

Ordinarily I toggle between CBS News with Scott Pelley and NBC News with Lester Holt in the early evening, mostly to avoid commercials, but I'm wondering if I should give ABC's news division another chance after this evening's broadcast.  NBC…Continue

Carl, that's a disturbing cat graphic. I can't look at it with a full stomach.

There are a lot of mobility scooters on the road in Denmark, open and enclosed. Fine for most of the year but not useful when the snow comes.

A rare afternoon appearance by yours truly. Guess I'm not the only one. Another major T-storm passing through. It's unfair that we're getting drenched and other parts desparately need rain. The golf course was soggy--rare for August. (I played this AM to beat the heat.)

By the way, my "poopmobile" is my dog. She goes in the yard. Molly used to go in the field. Gotta watch my step now!

The faithless popemobile.  Good for a laugh.  

Comment by Plinius on August 26, 2014 at 1:28pm

The pope has got one, Joan.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 26, 2014 at 1:22pm

Patricia, Oh my gosh! They actually exist! A real possibility.

Felaine, I know what you mean, my car is 22 years old and I very much dread the day my mechanic will no long work on her. I hope the price of electric cars come down by then. I went all last winter on one tank of gas and I am about to get my second tank this summer. Grocery store, hardware and dinner out once in a while is about the only driving I do. I could do that on a tricycle. Problem is, our winters can be brutal. I wonder if there is such a thing as an enclosed golf cart? and can they be licensed for driving on roads?

And sometimes on the mat in the other bathroom. 

I used to have a big black cat who would always be sitting right inside the front door when I got home from work, but at that time I was driving a 1960 TR-3, and mother told me he didn't make a move till he heard my car pull up at the curb. (I drove that car for 25 years, and felt like someone had died when I had to sell it because I could not find a mechanic who was willing to work on it any more.)

Carl, Oh my goodness, make it stop!

Comment by Plinius on August 26, 2014 at 10:43am

But we know Carl, we clean the cat box every day!
