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 following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

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)

"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

Because the NRA campaigns on and whines on about the right to bear weapons, and people believe the nonsense. That was the 17th mass murder in the USA this year...

Rex Huppke in the Chicago Tribune:

A slaughter.

Seventeen dead. At a high school. In America

It has happened before, it happened Wednesday and it will happen again.

Why? Because nothing. We do nothing.

School shooting. Nothing.

School shooting. Nothing.

School shooting. Nothing.

Enjoy yourself, Randall, and bring pictures!

Safe journey, Randall and take LOTS of pix!!!

Comment by Randall Smith on February 14, 2018 at 7:39am

 Well, I'm off to Honduras Thurs. My daughter and family live in Tegucigalpa. After 18 years, they're planning to move back to Indiana this summer.

This is my last chance to see the Mayan ruins of Copan, before they return. They haven't seen them either. So we're all (2 teens included) driving the 6 hours to see them, spending two days and nights exploring the ruins. Can't wait!

I'll be back Monday night.

Nope. I used the be 5'  2 1/2'', but lost that 2 1/2'' after my back surgery.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 13, 2018 at 3:39am

I imagined you as tall, Patricia!

Comment by Patricia on February 13, 2018 at 3:33am

I am 5' 0'' so it doesn't take much to make me feel snowed in.....especially when the city has done no cleaning in over a week!
