Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 1 hour 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

Ruth, the climate report is not a good one and it looks like you are in line for some new normals. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 11, 2013 at 1:36am

Good morning, Chris.  It's 1:30 AM here in Chicago and I'm just getting ready to crawl into bed.  I'm on some vacation days from work right now and am staying up a bit later than I usually do.  Have a great day.  It's always great to hear from you.  Good night!

Good morning! I'm running around like mad; there seems to be no end to the load of chores. That's why I write a lot less but I come here at least once a day to see how you all are doing. And I'm not complaining; I'm doing more or less the things I want to do - perhaps I want too many things? I'm off for an hour of cat-sitting, then to the market and the rest. Have a nice day!

Oh Tony I love that Catmas tree - so cute. How is everyone? 

I love all the posts and pics here.

ROFL What a great collection of images and video today. Thanks everyone. I needed cheering up after the bad climate news.

This seems to be the source of the catmas tree:

Feeding treats to all those Catmas tree kitties would be quite a job!

Comment by Plinius on October 10, 2013 at 7:11am

It's lovely, Tony! Just think of all the purring!

This could work equally well as a Halloween or Christmas tree. Your choice.
