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.

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller Jan 1. 0 Replies

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, Ian!

All 5, Spud.

Job interview tomorrow. It's only 8 weeks work but every little helps. It will involve getting up at 4 a.m. though.

Thanks Carl.

Same here, Spud.  I see all five symbols.

Thanks Chris.

All five of them, Spud!

And you're right, Kathy, better to have loved and lost...

Sending kind cat vibes to all dogs...

Yesterday I posted 2 comments that never showed-up, but I'll try again.

In the gardening group, Daniel said he could see my apple computer symbol on his tablet, but not his laptop, so I ask that group if they could see the symbols I post properly or not.  As there is more of you peeps posting here, I would appreciate any of you that can tell me how my symbols show on your computer, to give me an idea of whether to use them or not.  I'll put the symbol one space after the last word:

Here is my apple computer symbol   

Temperature degree symbol °

Smaller temp degree symbol ˚

Cent symbol ¢

Infinity symbol ∞

Ohm symbol Ω

Randy, like you, I feel so sorry for those cats and dogs in the commercials.  I would like to have one, but with my personality, and low income, it would not be a good thing.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 7, 2016 at 7:29am

I need to hug and play with my dog more often. I sometimes take her for granted (or "granite", as my sister used to say). I see those Humane Society commercials and feel sad for the dogs and cats. A local TV station had a story about a Comcast man picking up and taking home a stray dog (pit bull?). That dog was so "appreciative" and loving. That's what makes me want to hug my dog (Dot).

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 7, 2016 at 7:29am

We lost a pooch last year, and felt so lucky that she took her leave at home in bed. You always think you're never going to get another dog. Then finally one day remembering them brings a smile, and you do get another one, and it's always worth it.
