Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 3 hours ago

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.

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…Continue

The Ark Encounter: A Less than Grand Opening (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Tuesday. 4 Replies

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Monday. 10 Replies

Seth Andrews has been through the mill as it comes to dealing with those who insist that their faith in a deity is not just valid but necessary to their lives and to all lives.  Having dealt with that gauntlet and come out the other side an atheist,…Continue

We Are America / Love Has No Labels (John Cena - Ad Council)

It seems to be a repeating pattern: I wander around the internet and inevitably, I stumble onto all manner of stuff.  It happens all the time on YouTube, and as you doubtless have deduced, yours truly tripped over something a couple minutes ago,…Continue

NBC News Gives Ken Ham Free Advertising

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Jul 2. 13 Replies

Ordinarily I toggle between CBS News with Scott Pelley and NBC News with Lester Holt in the early evening, mostly to avoid commercials, but I'm wondering if I should give ABC's news division another chance after this evening's broadcast.  NBC…Continue

Patricia, what a wonder! That device does marvelous things and to be constantly monitored, as it does, must give you both peace of mind. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 10, 2014 at 9:31pm

Carl, that is a delightful piece. It must have been a very special way of life 

Comment by sk8eycat on September 10, 2014 at 9:13pm

That's an interesting device!  Seriously.  Beats the crap outta that thing that you have to wear, and press a button before saying, "I've fallen, and I can't get up."  (I fall down a lot....dizzy spells..., but I still am able to pull myself onto my feet...even though they are numb 24/7.  Ballet and skating classes were good for something, I guess.)

Great news, Patricia.  So......do you have a special meal planned for him when he returns?

Comment by k.h. ky on September 10, 2014 at 7:25pm
Good news Patricia. I'm happy all is well.

Great news, Patricia! What a guy you have.
I love to watch ice skating. So graceful and elegant.
Comment by sk8eycat on September 10, 2014 at 7:28am

I knew about the film, and had seen the trailer on their web site, nut the last I heard, they hadn't finished editing. 

It's been so many years that I barely recognize anyone...except Tom Collins, who was a principal skater, then company manager, and Morris Chalfen's brother in law.

Sk8eycat,  I just stumbled across this documentary on Netflix.  I haven't watched it yet (plan to) but wanted to make sure you were aware of it.

What a lovely start, Chris. I'm sure you deserve it.

Electronic devices, Spud! They've always had instructions resembling a Google translate version of something Asian or the work of a first-year student with a cheap dictionary.
