Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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 on Saturday. 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

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

Spoiler alert! The Keane movie is based on a true story. It wasn't the man who painted all those wide-eyed "creatures", but his wife! He couldn't paint a lick, but took all the credit, coercing her to keep her mouth shut. She's still alive and painting.

There was somebody else in the late 1960s who painted big-eyed dogs and cats...usually crying.  Disgusting.  IF an animal has teary eyes, it needs to see an ophthalmologist. 

There are veterinary eye specialists....amazing people!  I had to take my T. Devil to one....he had hydrostatic shock in both eyes from jumping from great heights....when he weighed 20 lbs. Couldn't save his eyes....and the saddest thing was that my Dad died while this was going on, and Mr. Devil would get in my dad's chair when it was time for the news....and wait, and wait, and wait.  It took him almosta year to realize that Dad was gone forever.

How do you explain things like that to a cat?

Comment by Plinius on December 23, 2014 at 3:05am

Of course it's all right, Felaine!

Something in the style reminds me of the Dutch COBRA artist Karel Appel, who painted hungry children just after WWII, but there's a world of difference - Keane is phoney.

Chris, I love your snarky comment....I may turn it into a greetihng card, if that's all right with you.

Comment by sk8eycat on December 23, 2014 at 2:17am

I don't want to give you nightmares, but they ARE tacky....always were.

The "artist" is a JW.....puke!

Comment by Plinius on December 23, 2014 at 1:05am

Yes, the Keane paintings - what a depressing sort of art is that! I may barf too! It's the barfing season anyway, with all the sugared xmas stories and all the other seasonal nonsense. Let's be kind to homeless people so we feel good and then we can neglect and ignore them for another year.

Comment by sk8eycat on December 23, 2014 at 12:04am

Does anyone else remember the so-called Keane paintings of big-eyed children that were so popular in the hippie days of the 1950s?  Someone has made a movie about the "artist." 

I may barf.

I've loved this recording ever since it was first released:
