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

Winter Driving, Preparing for the worst

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

What happen to her afterwards? Was she incarcerated or just booted out of the mall?

Here's the daughter of a friend of mine as a one-woman flash mob, with added security guards. It starts slowly.

I just learned about this thing "Flash Mob" yesterday. Here's another good one done in Denver. It's better to watch it on T.V. screen:

I agree, Ian, he was nothing short of magnificent. I'm just reading a book by one of his best friends, Martin Amis, where he relates a funny tale:

Thank you for the video, Bertold. Hitchens was the most eloquent of them all.

Comment by Patricia on January 11, 2018 at 2:08pm

Like ELO music a lot!

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 11, 2018 at 10:34am

I very much enjoyed that video, Bertold.  Dawkins introduction was wonderful.

Comment by Thomas Murray on January 11, 2018 at 10:33am

This video is by ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) and the song: " All Over the World "

It is inspiring and I love the dance......

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on January 11, 2018 at 7:01am

I agree, Joan. It was painfully sad but inspiring as well. Dawkins was magnificent. I loved how he characterized the notion that There are no atheists in foxholes as religionists' "most squalid claim."

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 11, 2018 at 1:00am

Bertold, thanks for the video of Hitch's last public appearance. It was a touching event, memorable.
