Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Sunday

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.

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

how dogma pollutes discourse (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 3. 0 Replies

"The Lord is our God; the Lord is One." "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me." "There is no god but Allah, and Mohamed is his prophet." Assertions, taught as fact, but without any form of corroborative…Continue

the value of offence | qualiasoup & theramintrees

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

To answer Ian's question:

Honduras, especially the capital, Tegucigalpa, is a pig sty. People more than "litter"-- they dump. Garbage of all kinds line the streets. The huts they live in are deplorable. Men urinate out in the open. The streets and traffic are nightmarish.

Outside of Teguc, it's not much better. Only the scenery is nicer. Why my daughter and husband enjoy living there is a mystery to me. They just have the compassion and faith to help the needy. To me, it's a spit in the ocean.

I understand the president (Hernandez) is trying to do something, but the present culture prevents a total makeover. It's quite sad and depressing.

Thanks, but am not up to speed with learning my way around it just yet, so am still on the old one for now.

Congrats on the new computer, Patricia.

I have heard nobody say anything positive about Windows 8 or 8.1!

Comment by Loren Miller on February 20, 2018 at 3:34pm

I'm running Windows 10, but I have to believe it will run on other platforms.  In fact, I just checked and Cliqz says it'll run on Windows 7 and 8 ... though WHY would you want to run Win8??? [grin!]

I just got a brand new laptop with lighted keyboard, & blue light protector (macular degeneration), & it has Windows 10.

I also have a Chromebook & may give it a try on there first.

I've been on Ubuntu & Mint for a few years, so Windows is rather strange to me now.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on February 20, 2018 at 3:14pm

Patricia - I think it's compatible back to Win 7. Also works on 'Droid.

Comment by Patricia on February 20, 2018 at 3:09pm

Is that for Windows 10?
