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

I got that trump/russia Tweeted....maybe Twitter rules are different here.

Comment by Patricia on February 16, 2018 at 2:07am

I've always thought that that was one of the most ridiculous phrases I'd ever heard.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2018 at 2:04am

Maybe deciding not to have children is an unintended outcome that would be best for the planet. It seems that choosing not to have children presents a weak force against the influence of religion to "go forth and multiply" imperative.

Maybe the young ones who make it to adulthood, may decide not to have kids for risking them to bullets!

Comment by Patricia on February 16, 2018 at 1:29am

Yes, I support public education too, but I'd be very uncomfortable sending them to the US schools until something changed. I could never quit worrying during the 5 days a week they were there, & who needs that stress, for the kids & the parents? You aren't going to have any of your young ones left if this doesn't change..

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2018 at 1:08am

Patricia, I agree, parents have every right to take their children out of school, public and private, and homeschool them. 

I say this as a firm supporter of public education. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2018 at 1:06am

Well, well, well. I just tried a half dozen times to retweet Trump fucked by Russia and could not get it published. Does censorship raise its ugly head?

Comment by Patricia on February 16, 2018 at 12:45am

I just saw something on Twitter about parents should take all the kids out of schools for a week or until something gets changed in the gun laws.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2018 at 12:43am

Patricia! Perfectly stated, "Engage with reality and fix your fucking fun laws!"
