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 on Saturday. 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

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Ya just gotta love this guy:

Randall - Spike Lee is one one the guys I was thinking of.

Tom Lehrer is a humurous musician.

Beautiful pictures, Ian!

As bleak as it appears, I love the landscapes, Ian. I wonder where those people are hiking to. Top of the hill?

Back in circulation after my week away.

Belated 'happy birthday' Chris.

Ruth, I hope things start getting better soon. Waiting for answers is a real strain on ones morale and can make everything seem even worse.

Tom, the cycle paths of East Jutland are a menace. When I cycled to and from work I had punctures from grit weekly.

Phil Harris was a regular on the BBC's children's radio in the 60s and I clearly remember 'The Thing' and having a good laugh.

Joan, Fuerteventura is too arid and windblown for farmers, either volcanic rock or sahara-by-the-sea. I'm told that La Palma is green and lush so I might head there next winter.

Ol' Phil was my kind of irreligious cat, like Spike Lee.
Chris, I, too, have all of my parents old jazz 78's. They go back to the early 40's. I should take the time to play them. I have a record player that can.

I'd love to find a recording of Phil Harris singing "There's a Lot More Lying Down."

Here's what I remember of the chorus:

Oh, there's a lot more lyin' down

Than there is up walkin' around

There's a lot more folks asleep

Than there is out upon the street

For every day you live and breathe

You'll spend a hundred years six feet deep.

I have a bunch of 78 Jazz albums. 78 rpm records are thick and heavy. Record players that play them are kind of difficult to find.

In  the 1970's at about 10 PM the KGO (?) radio station in San Francisco played old time radio shows from the 30' and 40's that was fun to listen to.  Sorry, I don't remember the name, or host of the program. It must have been sindicated. Did anyone else listen to it?
