Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 2 hours ago

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 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

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…Continue

It seems to be a repeating pattern: I wander around the internet and inevitably, I stumble onto all manner of stuff.  It happens all the time on YouTube, and as you doubtless have deduced, yours truly tripped over something a couple minutes ago,…Continue

Carl! Thank you for these sites. I will watch them later and celebrate the progress toward sectarianism and freedom from religion. 

I think his Jewishness will be used against him when he gains more delegates

Hey, folks.  One of the podcasts I listen to regularly is In Our Time with Melvyn Bragg on the BBC.  Back in 2009 he did a four-part series on the life of Charles Darwin.  I recently listened to it again and thought I would share it with you.  It's very informative and worth a listen.

Darwin:  On the Origins of Charles Darwin  Part 1 of 4

Darwin:  The Voyage of the Beagle  Part 2 of 4

Darwin:  On the Origin of Species  Part 3 of 4

Darwin:  Life After Origins  Part 4 of 4

HAPPY DARWIN DAY!

Randy, I don't think the Jewishness attacks on Bernie will start unless he actually becomes the Democratic nominee.  But rest assured, unfortunately, they will begin at that point.

Comment by Randall Smith on February 12, 2016 at 7:26am

I keep waiting for attacks on Bernie's Jewishness, albeit an unpracticed "faith". I reckon the Republicans are holding that ace up their sleeve. I thought Bernie did quite well in last night's debate. Same old talking points, but effective.

Here's Catholic Vote's (unsurprising) take on Bernie Sanders:

[Bolding is mine.)

Bernie Sanders: If Sanders can cut into Hillary’s support with black voters, he may very well unravel her campaign. Sanders’ candidacy is growing in intensity and must be taken seriously. The likelihood of a long and protracted Democratic primary appears inevitable. Of greatest concern are the ideas driving his campaign (race/class/sex warfare, attacks on business, massive taxation and redistribution pledges along with promises for total government takeover of healthcare and college education and more). There are already voices arguing that Catholic social teaching and socialism are compatible. Whether Sanders succeeds or not, the ‘political revolution’ is real and will not go away. Catholic voters may be especially vulnerable to certain aspects of this appeal. We think this revolution must be vigorously opposed.

I'm packing the books from my bedroom bookshelf. These are the books I refer to most when trying to make a decision on an issue. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 11, 2016 at 1:02pm

Ian, I like your "God will make a way" poster. I responded to when posted on Facebooks because I do not believe God knows the way because he doesn't exist, or something in that order.

For those interest in gardening, especially "Allium Family Perennial Vegetables", check Daniel's Blog Growing Greener in the Pacific Northwest

Oh, Carl. I would hate having weak legs, especially since I walk between 5 and 10 miles a day. Hopefully, they'll find out what's wrong.

Enjoy your humor, Ian.
