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.

Oh, NO!  The gun debate has gotten so heated that it has Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, TALKING TO HERSELF!  Apparently, one of her has had a stroke or a serious breakdown in cognitive skills, as she does little more than parrot the NRA's…Continue

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

Ian, did you get to hold your grandson? Having a grandchild in your arms is almost as good as holding your own child. Enjoy the precious moments.

Comment by Patricia on March 12, 2018 at 1:14pm

Yes, Carl usually checks in a bit more often.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 12, 2018 at 8:46am

On Saturday I saw my grandson for the first time - and he promptly fell asleep for three hours. His mother must have warned him about my 'dad jokes'. He's a beautiful little boy. He had stomach problems the first few days because he'd swallowed amniotic fluid and then couldn't sleep unless he was in his parents arms but he seems to be settling into a rhythm now.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 12, 2018 at 8:42am

I wondered that too, Randall especially as he's had some health problems over the past few years.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 12, 2018 at 7:08am

Speaking of "MIA's", I'm wondering where Carl is, and how he's doing. ???

Comment by Grinning Cat on March 12, 2018 at 3:30am

Thanks, Randy; I'm glad to hear Daniel is on the mend.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 10, 2018 at 9:52am

Thanks, Randy, for letting us know that Danel seems to be recovering nicely. 

Comment by Randall Smith on March 10, 2018 at 7:35am

Daniel erased his gardening group message. I won't divulge what he said, since he apparently doesn't want us to know. But, he's doing okay, recovering nicely from some set-backs.

Comment by Patricia on March 9, 2018 at 2:54pm

I think of Daniel every day. There is always something we have to cope with as best we can.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 9, 2018 at 8:04am

Our old friend, Daniel, has suffered some set-backs recently. Details can be found at the discussion forum in the Gardening group.
