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.

It's the Big Day, everyone!

 To throw it into another direction.

Should Marajauna be legal?"

Methaphetaphine is a scourage which results in social problems.

Methaphetamine seems to me to be the worst illegal drug in the U.S.

How is the DEA going to stop it?

I love that Chicago woodpecker but I also think it behaves unusual because it doesn't feel well. Nice taxi driver!

Kind of funny that Xtians call the masacare of Jesus "Good Friday."

I wonder how religious people enjoy masachosim.

That's very nice, Carl. Couldn't see any signs of an injury.

Two people in the comments suggested the bird may have been injured.  I wonder if that was the case.

The local Catholic archdiocese requires clergy, staff, and volunteers that might have any contact with children to pass criminal background checks. Exactly as if there weren't a god that could protect the kids.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 14, 2017 at 9:35am

On my walk in the dark this morning, I was struck by how many lights there were on the Catholic school.  Seems like a lack of faith that god will protect the property.

Another thing that brings to mind is that whenever children are out playing, there are always 2 or 3 adults watching them.  That seems like a lack of faith as well.

Great, Ian!
