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.

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

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

Thanks for the validation, booklover.

Funny LOLcat, Steph.

What an interesting thing to meet an author, Patricia. The signing was in the grocery store, not the bookstore? I guess book signings are done differently in Cariboo.

Good saying, Loren.

Them: Do you think the dead can live again?
Me: Dr. Frankenstein tried that once. It didn't work out so well...

Loren, thanks for the laugh! And well said to the evangelist couple, Patricia!

Great hat, Patricia.

Well put, Loren.

Mindy, your young ones look fine and happy.

Just finished "The Second Coming" by John Niven. Would you believe that Jesus is in heaven jamming with Jimi? There'salso a great quote as a chapter heading. Britney Spears supporting capital punishment because that's how criminals lear their lesson for next time.

Carl, I work nights and in a shift pattern that means not working Mon. og Tues. so I could sleep all day after the Sabbath and be rested for my Wed, night shift so that was all right.

Hope nobody has burst during the U.S,'s big eating day.

Your kids look great, booklover.

I don't have time to read.

I spent all day yesterday working on this discussion Abnormal Arctic. Grinning Cat did the video remixes and added ideas.

I've been consumed by our unfolding planetary emergency. Sorry I neglected all of you here lately.

I agree with you, Chris, about the numerous mass killings most of us just ignore.

Comment by Plinius on November 29, 2013 at 2:39am

Most people think of THE holocaust, as if there was only one of them. How come they never consider the mass killings of Armenians, gypsies, Cambodians, Vietnamese, Africans, Chinese. And I haven't even started on crimes against women and gays.  Thanks for the title, I put it on my TBR-list - a very long list, I'm afraid.

Chris, I just recently heard about "The Year 1000."  I'm told it is a very good book.  I'm about half way through "King Leopold's Ghost."  It was recommended to my by Daniel, our friend Sentient Biped.  It's a really good and interesting book about the huge slaughter of millions of Africans at the turn of the 20th Century.  Most people today are not even aware that such horrible events took place, despite the fact that the number of people killed is on par with the World War Two Holocaust.
