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.

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 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

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

My brother had a T-shirt when his children were younger, saying:

Oh!  I love Group Hugs!  Where did you find that?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 23, 2014 at 10:01pm

I just wanted to thank everyone here for all your support and well wishes you have bestowed upon me recently.  You folks are the best and it means so much to me.

How many people in here are old enough to remember when women (and men) dressed up for air AND rail trips?  Hats, gloves, full skirts, or business suits.  My first air trip to Mexico City was when I was 21...I wore a dress that was too dressy for the office...with crinolines.  I was NOT flying 1st Class, but I did not see anyone on that plane, male or female, in jeans.  That was in 1961.

It seems the message I sent when I was in the back yard didn' get through. 

Carl that T-shirt is atrocious! No redeeming qualities at all. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 23, 2014 at 7:48pm

I just want to clarify.....there's absolutely nothing wrong with large breasts, it's just that they made this awful T-shirt stand out even more prominently. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 23, 2014 at 7:12pm

I wouldn't wear that T-shirt to take out the trash for fear of my neighbors seeing me.
