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.

degrading love — part one (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Nov 22. 11 Replies

Love is by many considered among the highest of positive emotions.  Yet when love of the type offered by deities is examined, something seems to go seriously wrong.  The love of Yahweh seems less a gift than a demand, not so much beneficence as a…Continue

Tomorrowland looks like it has possibilities.

And now for something COMPLETELY different - cue Brad Bird:

Ooooo, Mindy!  That one is EVIL ... I LOVE it!

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 16, 2014 at 3:03pm

Mindy, thanks for the Proof that Spider-man exists, and Jesus Loves me group psychosis funnies.  Never hear the last one before.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on October 16, 2014 at 9:14am

I've always liked the old bumper sticker that says "Zero to bitch in 60 seconds."

Comment by Plinius on October 16, 2014 at 1:06am

My American neighbour told me what bitch means: Babe In Total Control of Herself.  

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 15, 2014 at 9:23pm

Mindy, I missed your post about Dale being hungry again. That is good news indeed. Hope he continues in good health.  

Patricia, I know the feeling about family members who are so tied up in religious dogma, I can't get an original idea out of them. Oh well! It is their life. I just don't like being around bible thumpers either. 

You and I can make contact and do our thinking together. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 15, 2014 at 9:17pm

Oh yes! the old Apple, Mac, PC debate. I am a MacBook Pro person myself. Love it. 

Patricia tried a Mac and didn't like it at all. She changed to Ubuntu, I think it is. 

Well, I don't know th real difference. My son, daughter and son-in-law are all Mac people; I guess Mac is in our blood stream.

I had heard the phrase/title "Duck Dynasty," but knew nothing about it.  Another scripted, costumed UNreality show, eh?  Sounds as boring as watching the Duggar family pray....or have sex.

Comment by Ian Mason on October 15, 2014 at 12:34pm

I've never heard of "Duck Dynasty" and didn't know the pic came from it, whatever it is.
