Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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

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

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

My system can't find that post Loren.  I tried several places Google referred me to, and no luck.

Okay, enough amusement!  Time for SERIOUS stuff.  Did you realize there are 25 Logical Reasons to Vote for Donald Trump?  You DIDN'T???  Well, then, you should clearly click on the link above and find these out!

Qiana, Ruth, nothing wrong with being easily amused!

(Great pictures!)

Ruth, a "Fresh Air" episode I heard today (Monday) in the car brought to mind what you said about your cats hiding in the basement when the smoke alarm sounds, and that in a fire you'd have no time to save them.

Terry Gross interviewed Sarah Ellis, author of The Trainable Cat, which made me think "what if her cats could learn to endure that particular horrible noise, and go instead to the door, or into their carriers!"

Listen, or read the transcript, at NPR's site: http://www.npr.org/templates/transcript/transcript.php?storyId=4932...

That only adds up to 75%.  Something wrong somewhere.

Joan, your fire posts got me interested, so I went to https://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/statistics/res_bldg_fire_es... and they say in 2014, the causes of residential fires were:

cooking = 50%

Heating = 13%

Electrical malfunctions = 6%

Other = 6%
