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.

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

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

Very sad indeed. Please let us know if we can do anything as a group.

Carl, that's such sad news. We've had the privilege and the pleasure of knowing Elaine here and enjoying her feisty, mischievous and godlessly moral and good-hearted spirit. We're all diminished by her exit.

My dear friends, this is difficult to say after just posting a joke, but I sadly inform you that our beautiful friend Elaine, affectionately known as Felaine and Sk8eycat, died this past weekend.  

I just spoke with her sister since I wasn't able to reach Elaine at the hospital.  I was told she passed away on Saturday.

I'm so glad I was able to speak with Elaine previously to let her know that all of us were thinking about her and cared about her.  I'm glad she left us knowing that.

Although I live in Chicago, I asked her sister if there's anything I can do.  She said to just give a donation to an animal shelter or adopt a pet.  "Elaine would like that," she said. 

Like many of you, I know I'm going to miss Elaine very much.

Astronomers take the heat out of sunspots theory

"Forget the sunspot connection. Scientists say that rising global average temperatures cannot be attributed to them as there has been no long-term upward trend in solar activity since 1700."

A really stunning book: "A Delicate Truth" by John Le Carre. In the 'global war on terror', British intelligence and special forces end up being the underlings of American private defence contractors, all thanks to the Neocon policies of New Labour. Le Carre's best book in years: no punches pulled, no holds barred, no prisoners taken. Read it in an afternoon/evening yesterday.

With this unbearable heat l find myself looking forward to fall. Fall has always been my favorite season. That's the time l venture into the nearby woods and look for compostable leaves and tiny transplantable dogwood trees. Or just go for a nice walk without the worry of ticks and chiggers.

I grew up on a diet of mostly radio. It created a love of language that has never died. If there's a negative side to that, it's that I don't find visual humour very funny. Chaplin and Mr. Bean for example.

It seems that, after a rather grey and wet season, August will be the month that Summer comes to Denmark. We will toast gently in the sunshine with temperatures of around 20-25 degrees. Nice and comfortable, I think.

You didn't miss a thing, Chris.
