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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

Yes, we're still at home, fires aren't too close for the moment. The closest ones have been beaten down, but the smoke is really bad. It carries across to Manitoba, so no idea of where we'd go to get out of it. Prince George was so dark a couple of days ago that 10 am looked like midnight. We can't go too far from medical care & heading into the Northwest Territories or the Yukon is too far & no transport anyway.

Are you still at Williams Lake, Patricia? How about Rick?  How close are the flames to you? 

Oh! my goodness! That is just awful!

Comment by Patricia on August 18, 2018 at 2:58pm

It just reeks, & we have no place within reason to get out of it......so face mask it is.

Comment by kathy: ky on August 18, 2018 at 1:39pm

That is way worse than I ever imagined. 

Comment by Patricia on August 18, 2018 at 1:44am

No there isn't. This is awful!

Comment by Plinius on August 18, 2018 at 1:42am

It's ghastly, Patricia, no clean air anywhere!

Comment by Plinius on August 18, 2018 at 1:40am

Thanks Ian!

Comment by Patricia on August 17, 2018 at 6:38pm

The smoke last year reached France, so it wouldn't be surprising, & we have more fires this year, although smaller ones but no less dangerous.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 17, 2018 at 6:22pm

I saw somewhere that the smoke has now reached Europe.
