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.

Evangelicals Unmasked (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat May 26. 4 Replies

After roughly two months of "shelter-in-place," it would seem that evangelical Christians are champing at the bit to get back to their money-making-machines churches, because empty pews mean empty collection plates, which means no moolah in pastors'…Continue

Are YOU a budding astronaut?  Do YOU think you could dock the Crew Dragon to the International Space Station?  Why not give it a shot?  SpaceX has released a pretty slick simulator which does an impressive job of recreating that experience.  Word of warning: this is NOT a game that goes quickly, though once you get your "rates" nulled out it goes pretty smooth ... IF you're not approaching the station too fast!  Here's a screenshot of the sim to give you an idea:

I think lockdown is necessary, most especially in the larger, more crowded countries.

Yes, we've done very well for the size of us.

I voted yesterday, by dropping off my ballot outside the elections office. Final results in Pennsylvania won't be certain for days, since the governor extended the deadline for six counties affected by "recent civil disturbances", including Philadelphia and the Pittsburgh area, to receive mailed ballots postmarked by Election Day. Some races still had clear winners, such as Joe Biden.

(I voted for Bernie Sanders, wanting him to have as many delegates as possible at the Democratic national convention, to strengthen his voice on policy. In November, I'm voting blue, up and down the ticket.)

Congrats on the new arrival, Randall!  My very best to all involved!

Comment by Randall Smith on June 3, 2020 at 6:35am

My state was one of 7 that held primary elections yesterday. Only 25% of my county's voters voted. I didn't because virtually all the contestants were Republicans. Except for the presidential race, there were few choices. I'll cast my ballot in November, for sure!

It looks like BC, like Denmark has come through things fairly lightly so far. I'm glad to hear that.

Thanks, all. His name is Douglas Jens Rayner. The names are chosen from great grandfathers on both sides.

Congratulations on your new grandson, Ian!
