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.

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

Ian, I'm happy to hear you had a good vacation and a positive experience while in the US.  Next time you'll have to make it a little further west to Chicago.  Lots of good food, museums, and sights to see.  In the meantime, enjoy your rest while you regain your energy.

Bertold, you found another real treasure! I'm sharing. Thanks.

Ian, I am happy that you had positive experiences while you were in the US. Now, back to normal; laundry and household chores! Well, you have some memories to fill your time while you go about your daily tasks.

Even better, Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption is a genuine site!  Not much of a site, granted, but there it is!

Bertold ... in a word ... HOOBOY!  Once again, John Oliver knocks it outta the park!

Comment by Ian Mason on August 29, 2017 at 12:55pm

Back in my usual surroundings after a really good holiday. The people of the US don't match the Hollywood stereotype. They're much friendlier and more polite. There were lots of memorable experiences, large and small, that recharged my batteries. Now I just have to face a pile of laundry - tomorrow.

I will share your sentiments with Patricia; I liked her posts as well. There was some conflict that I forget; I will let her know you miss her and welcome her to come back.
