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.

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

WOW, Kathy, you have a bright child on your hands. Does she show any interest in any subject: art, music, literature, math, physics, any of the sciences, history? 

My goodness, she will be fun to raise. I forgot how old Paige is now.

Thanks Carl, my gdaughter just asked yesterday if we were going to trust our sight to a pair of fifty cent viewing glasses.

Carl, thanks for the sites about the eclipse.  They were interesting.

My favorite rain song:

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 6, 2017 at 2:58pm

These three songs came to mind that view rain in a positive light.

Singing In The Rain....a classic!

April Showers...bring May flowers.

March Winds and April Showers...bring romance!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 6, 2017 at 2:52pm

Here are some interesting links about the eclipse.  Everything you need to know.

Important to note is that there have been some warnings about knock-off brands of viewing glasses that have inferior protection and may damage your eyes.  The first link above lists the five recommended sources to obtain legitimate glasses.  They are listed toward the end of the article.

Carl, summer here is usually fairly dry, but I think this year has been dryer than normal.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 6, 2017 at 2:41pm

Spud, 2.5 months is a long time to go without a lot of rain. Is that common for your area of Idaho this time of year?

I also love the rain.  I like the visuals and the sounds of a raging thunderstorm.  I also enjoy a brooding, cloudy, rainy, and windy day from inside a cozy, warm house.

Comment by kathy: ky on August 6, 2017 at 2:40pm
Maybe I can get my family to pray the clouds away that day. Lol
Comment by kathy: ky on August 6, 2017 at 2:39pm
In that case I'll do it Carl. In all my reading I've not seen that.
