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.

When I stepped outside in the dark this morning, my attention was attracted to the full moon being colored orange.  I figured it was because of smoke from the fires around here.

It was confirmed when I went out after sunrise and saw the smoke obscuring the hills.  Not much.  I can't even smell it.  It's nothing compared to Canada and other places, but it's what's happening here.  I took a picture of the moon, but didn't get it.  Took a pix of the hills being obscured with smoke and here it is:

Kathy, I like the prayer & masturbation comparison.  

I also like your daughter story.

Ian, a friend told me if she had known gkids were this much fun she would have had them first :)

You are in for the best times of your life.

People tell me that grandchildren are life's dessert, Joan and I'm really looking forward to it.

Well put, Kathy. A vulgar term for someone useless in British English is 'wanker' so it fits very well.

I remember when my gdaughter was about six. I would be sitting at the computer reading something on Atheist Nexus and she would be standing behind me reading along. I wouldn't notice her until she asked me what a word meant.
I don't know what brought that to mind.

The link between hurricanes and climate change

“astounding and astonishing.” “I’ve never seen consistent model output forecasting rainfall amounts of over 30 inches before,” 

~ Dan Satterfield, chief meteorologist with WBOC-TV in Salisbury, Md.

“It’s hard, if not impossible, to compare this to any other storm.” “It may stand alone when all is said and done in terms of rainfall.”

~ Eric Fisher, chief meteorologist at WBZ-TV in Boston.

“The environment in which all events occur these days is different, so in fact every storm is different, every event is actually different. It has to be.” “The air, being warmer, means it can also hold more moisture. There’s more moisture in the air, especially coming off of the oceans.”

Kevin Trenberth, a scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
