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.

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Sorry to hear about your "other hip", Patricia. I should be grateful I have only thumb joint arthritis to bother me. Good luck to Rick.

Oh, and I meant Leeds (Eng), not Liverpool.

Comment by Patricia on June 15, 2018 at 2:40am

Encore performance coming up for me. My other hip has deteriorated rapidly since last December's x-ray, so I have to go another replacement surgery, hopefully within a couple of months.

Rick is having his defib/pacemaker implant replaced July 5th.

Never ending........

It's well worth it, Randall. Just remember to take waterproofs or a brolly. Sooner or later it WILL rain.

Comment by Randall Smith on June 13, 2018 at 9:54am

It's been awhile since I've been to England: 20 yrs ago in Liverpool and the Lake country; 50 yrs. since London, etc. (when I biked through the country). You've got me thinking about returning, Ian.

Comment by Ian Mason on June 12, 2018 at 10:00am

I've been in England for a long weekend. Mostly just relaxing with the family but also took a day trip to London to see some art and 'The Two Noble Kinsmen' at The Globe.

Comment by Patricia on June 6, 2018 at 3:02pm

Yes, I found several of the countries percentages rather shocking. Glad we did well, but am still boggled about the numbers on the sun revolving around the earth thing.

Comment by Grinning Cat on June 6, 2018 at 7:12am

Thanks, Patricia, for sharing the quiz
about public knowledge of science

10/10 here, plus noticed a typo in
in Question 5. :)

It was interesting that the US did significantly worse on the last question, and Israel also did noticeably worse, than their top-group performance on the other questions might suggest. Maybe connected to enough of the population taking a certain Abrahamic religious teaching literally?

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on June 6, 2018 at 2:54am

9/9 in the quiz.

Re Question 7.

Some of you know I say there’s no evidence that the universe started with either an explosion or an expansion.

Its being supported by taxpayers, it is the best-funded theory. The funding pays for the advertising that results in the theory’s being the best one known to those who make the NSF’s test.

Comment by Plinius on June 6, 2018 at 12:53am

9/10 in the quiz...

Comment by Ian Mason on June 5, 2018 at 11:18pm

Thanks, GC. I doubt that anyone is going to look for this group with the intent of stealing anything.

10/10 in the quiz. General knowledge, although I might have got a couple wrong when I was younger. Knowledge accumulates through the years.
