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 amazing what you discover when you go looking for something you had no idea you'd find.  On an impulse, I pulled up Eric Whitacre's website to see if he had created any new pieces.  It would seem that he has: a song cycle called The City and…Continue

Have you noticed that much of the discussion in families and with friends, in the print media, on TV, and now on the internet is in the Passive Voice? Many people whine, complain, gripe, accuse, blame, call names, ridicule, grumble, bitch, rebuke,…Continue

Something Beautiful – Nathan Phelps & Seth Andrews

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 10. 7 Replies

And it is beautiful, too, indeed, I think some of Seth Andrews' best work.  Interesting point: rather than Seth's dulcet baritone doing the narration, this piece presses Nathan Phelps' deep bass intonation into service, bringing a different flavor…Continue

I hated "I Love Lucy" and "The Honeymooners" because of all the yelling.  And the subdued slapstick.

Slapstick seems to be a man thing. In most cases.

I still think Jesus never existed....except as a Latino baseball player.  And Larry was one of the three stooges.  A "comedy" team I never could wrap my head around.  I thought their  slapstick routines were disgusting.

"Mohammed" was a beautiful young man who is now dreadfully brain-damaged by the non-sport of boxing.

That would be cozy! I'd love to meet you here!

Yes I read it too. We still have our own little bible belt, but it's more a last resistance - a struggle about blasphemy laws, the right to ring church bells or about Sunday shopping.

Also interesting was was the outcome of research into the idea that people in the country are more neighborly than people in urban areas. Research showed it was the other way around. I'm glad of it because most people live in urban areas.

Joan, I can't answer your first question. On the second, both--eggs first (and they start laying in 5 months!), then meat (in 2 years).

I'm being "scoped" tomorrow (Tues), so today is "yuck day". No solid foods and taking the good ol' "eradicator" stuff. It's only been <4 years since my last scope, but they found polyps (benign) and recommended a 3 year follow-up. Procrastination time is over.

A beautiful dream! I'm so sorry that I could never take part in projects like these!

Randy, 240 chicks will turn out to be identified as male and female later? Will these chick be raised for eggs and meat? It looks like their summer will be busy! 

Patricia, I guess the pope poops just like the rest of us people.

Well, if London would have been buried by horse dung if the past trends were true today, now we have the trend lines that say London will be covered with water if all the Polar ice melts. I guess we live in the best of times.  

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 19, 2015 at 1:11am

And if that London horse dung was laid end to end, it would reach the moon and back to earth how many times?
