Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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

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

Bertold, as usual, Valerie Tarico makes more sense and offers a healthier way of living and viewing the world than any religious denomination known to me. Even Buddhist principles have some dreadful traditions with which I do not want to participate. 

I also laughed at the Missippi's literacy piece. Spelling seems to be a needed discipline.

I just did a search on the whole Ark Encounter thing, looking for news and found no confirmation that it had been damaged or destroyed.

Would be nice, though. [grin!]

Bertold, that literacy article gave me a real bellylaugh. Guess I identify with Atheist Barbie, excepting for the cigarette, make up, and strapless top. Well, I'm only angry and bitter about politics and climate change, everything else is great. (That includes you all.)

That precise flood is hilarious.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on April 22, 2016 at 3:00pm

Sorry about that. I nicked it off the A|N FB page.

Comment by Ian Mason on April 22, 2016 at 7:09am

It would be funny but Scopes says it's a joke.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on April 22, 2016 at 1:58am

Maybe there is a God.

Comment by Plinius on April 21, 2016 at 11:53pm

And there's space for more improvement...

Comment by Donald L. Engel on April 21, 2016 at 4:39pm

Hey Bert, don't mess with their minds.  They're trying to handle LGBT right now, and spelling is way down on their list.

Those are good principles, Bertold.

Randall, doing nothing is sometimes the best treatment.

We're having a couple of sunny days at the moment before Winter gives a little encore at the weekend so I've been making the most of it and going jogging in the woods. The anemonies are flowering and the trees are in bud; there fore a little topical tune. The Flower Duet from Lakme.
