Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 850
Latest Activity: on Monday

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.

Steven Weinberg on his anti-theism

I like the sound of Steven Weinberg's voice. He has a calming impact on me as I rush to get my home of 41 years ready to sell and plan and put into motion the new garden at my daughter's home. My home is full o empty boxed quickly filling with the…Continue

Glad you  had a good day, Mindy. I've no idea what Philppine food is like.

Sweet cat and kitten, Carl. I wonder if cats are a  more effective selling ploy than sex?

Good to hear that you're enjoying your garden and wildlife, Joan.

Sunday was a pleasant day for me: a local ½ marathon followed by eating with my daughter and her bloke. Enjoyed both very much even though my middle-aged legs are complaining now. Happy holiday weekend to all.

Good Sunday mornin' to ye all! Just came in from 3 hours in the garden. A crow has found our peanut feeder emptied it right out. So, now I have crows, sparrows and chickadees. Oh! I wish a goldfinch would visit 

I signed the petition and hope it has a negative effect on the homophobes. It is past time for grown-ups to grow up.

Mindy, your trip to  Rolling Meadow sounds like great fun. Have a great meal always appeals to me. Did cook Philippine style food. 

A Philippine friend, Jose Valerico, taught me how to make Adobo. It was delicious. Red Chile Adobo Sauce.The way he taught me was to fry chicken parts and pork chops, pour the sauce over them, simmer about 20 minutes to blend flavors, then serve over rice. A very nice sweet and sour sauce .

Carl, do you now have a cat house mate?

Hello and Happy Sunday to everyone.  I like the changing cat and the artist horse, Mindy and Ian. 

There was a cat standing right outside my front window yesterday evening that was so adorable.  He/She was white with caramel brown spots.  Just like a tiny miniature cow.  I immediately thought if that was my cat, I'd call him/her "Moo Moo."

Sunday pun

I am able to see the film this time. Felaine, it is wonderful! What memories you must have. The precision and grace of the skaters, and the beautiful choreography amazes me. How did you remember those routines? I always feel so anxious for the person on the end of the line trying to catch up. Is that contrived? or does the person really have to catch up? Anyway, It is thrilling to watch. 

I can just imagine you scooting around with your walker, remembering the old days and reliving them. Thank you so very much for sharing these with us.

Carl, that would be so much fun! We could go to the Netherlands, sit in on Chris's classes and eat some Zuurkoolstamppot met Spek (Sauerkraut & Potato Mash with Bacon). 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on June 8, 2014 at 12:24am

Joan, like others here, I have been laughing aloud the past few days while reading the posts here.  What a fun group of people!

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 8, 2014 at 12:21am

I love the spelling corrections and images they evoke. 

Comment by sk8eycat on June 7, 2014 at 10:35pm

Carl, a minimum wage fast-food joint is NOT my idea of promoting job growth.  It's a dead end for desperate talented people whose real work has been outsourced to Asia where life is cheap.

But you know that.

IMO there is nothing more hypocritical than a public xian...
