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.

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…Continue

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Tuesday. 4 Replies

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

It seems to be a repeating pattern: I wander around the internet and inevitably, I stumble onto all manner of stuff.  It happens all the time on YouTube, and as you doubtless have deduced, yours truly tripped over something a couple minutes ago,…Continue

NBC News Gives Ken Ham Free Advertising

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Jul 2. 13 Replies

Ordinarily I toggle between CBS News with Scott Pelley and NBC News with Lester Holt in the early evening, mostly to avoid commercials, but I'm wondering if I should give ABC's news division another chance after this evening's broadcast.  NBC…Continue

Joan, that Ella Fitzgerald performance is fantastic,  And every single person in the band backing her up is a jazz legend in their own right.  I had the privilege of seeing Herb Ellis, the guitar player, perform in a small club, The Jazz Showcase here in Chicago, back in the late-80's.

Felaine, just type into your search engine whatever music you want to hear and it will pop up like magic. i.e. 

"1920s music". I opened this at random and found

@Chris in your honor, a magnificent bridge and tunnel, built with Dutch and Korean cooperation in Korea.

Ah, the memories: Nancy, Joanie, and especially, Ernie. Thanks for sharing the tribute to Mr. Cub, Carl. I'm pulling out my 50's baseball card collection searching for him.

And, Carl, your assessment of today's "talent" hit the bullseye. Yuck.

Oh, wow!  I haven't listened to Nancy Wilson in Years!  Back in the '60s, I played her LPs and Joanie Sommers ALL the time.  Don't have an LP player anymore, and no $$ to replace my music with CDs....yet. 

Two more months, and I will have paid off the MasterCard I maxed out in 2009.....my laminectomy and fusion, plus a terminally ill kitteh.  The first thing I think I'll do is have my hair cut!
