Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Monday

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.

Alexa for Evangelicals! (Betty Bowers)

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 30. 6 Replies

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

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

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Grinning Cat Aug 27. 20 Replies

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

Family gatherings: I spent last weekend with my daughter, her husband and my grandson James aka Jimmy Two-teeth and had a lovely time.

Good news, Ian! here it's about the same, but I think the government is only mouthing what we want to hear.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 5, 2018 at 2:34pm

Patricia, I like the "He should not be hired!" video.

Ruth, the image of a woman popping her teeth out when confronted with an intruder introduces a new weapon. Whatever works!  

Randy, a special day for you and your cousins! I wish the wait staff had taken the photo so that you could have been included in the photo. 

Ian, good news to learn that there exist reasonable conservatives. "They're feeling the pressure from below." We need a nation as willing to use pressure as yours. It is the only responsible thing to do.

Nice photo, Randy.

Comment by Ian Mason on October 5, 2018 at 9:54am

The newest proposal by the Danish government: by 2030 all new cars being sold must be hybrid, electric or other 'green' driven. This is from a conservative coalition. They're feeling the pressure from below. I don't know if it will become a reality but it's a good goal to set.

A nice family gathering, Randall.

Grannies can be pretty tough. Don't mess with them.

Comment by Randall Smith on October 5, 2018 at 7:23am

It's been several years (maybe 10?) since my cousins from my mother's sister got together. My sister and I met them at a local restaurant to catch up on our lives. We've all over 70 years old. My 3 male cousins are the "fat men" in the photo. Genetics are funny, as my sisters and I are short and thin. Anyway, we had a good time. 

Left to right: cousin #1 and wife, cousin #2, cousin #3's daughter, cousin #3 (in red), my sister.

Don't mess with old people!
