Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Thursday

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.

Evangelicals Breaking Up with Jesus (Betty Bowers)

Has evangelical Christianity lost sight of Christ?  Seems to me that there are a whole lot of evangelical Christians who are presuming to represent Jesus by not representing him or misrepresenting him or – let's be honest here – talking out of their…Continue

Small children seem to defy the laws of thermodynamics, Randall with all the energy they have. 

I hope you enjoyed your vacation, Ruth. That kind of thing is very pleasant.

Today I binge-watched 10 Star Trek Discovery episodes. A mental vacation of sorts.

I survived (a day with a 3 year old grandson)! A 3 hour afternoon nap (him, not me) helped.

Have a good weekend.

If you find a way to bottle some of his energy, you'll get plenty of takers among folks of double- and triple-digit age!!

Grandson sitting all day today at my house. He's 3 years old and a handful. I'm glad I kept all my own children's toys and games. My grandkids love playing with them. Heck, I even have stuff left from my own childhood. Last week I posted a photo of another grandson building a house with my plastic "bricks", a precursor to Lego's perhaps.

Unfortunately, it's too cold to play outside today. I may be pulling my hair out by noon--3 hours from now. I'm tired already.

A marvelous photo.

A historic and very influential image. I think it started to change a lot of narrow-minded attitudes.

December 24, 1968, the very first view of the Earth occurred when astronaut William Anders, part of the crew of Apollo 8, took this grainy photo of the rise of the Earth over the Moon. The sight gave me a shiver and I have never felt the same about myself in relation to the Earth as I did that day. Seven months later, Apollo 11 astronauts land on it.

Using modern technology, this remastered scene produced "Earthrise". Once again, I feel a shiver and a commitment to walk softly on Earth’s surface.

I like the moon and windmill photo.

That looks promising, Ian!
