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.

The myth of religions

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)

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

Thanks Carl, it looks nice! I grew up without radio and tv, and I can find out what things were of course, but when you talk about it it's much more telling.

Hi, Chris.  Get Smart was a very popular comedy show from the mid-1960's.  Max Smart was a bumbling and totally inept U.S. spy who worked for CONTROL (a take off on the FBI.)   Each episode featured Smart who was trying to intercept the nefarious plans of KAOS (a take off on the KGB.)  Of course, this show aired during the height of the Cold War with Russia.  The opening of the show with all the doors and the theme music has become a fairly iconic part of U.S. television history.

;-s  you can imagine where my name came from. It's all right. And you guessed right with the movie; stairs, doors, lift.

Was Get Smart a spy/detective/mission impossible series?

We enjoyed our first day off in months! Wonderful!

I just realized I wrote "Christ" instead of "Chris" when posting the Get Smart video.  Sorry about that, Chris.

Felaine and Plinius, you guys have beautiful neighborhoods.

Carl, I used to love Get Smart.

Christ, it sounds like getting to your apartment is a bit like this:

No tag or chip, Randall?

Comment by Randall Smith on August 16, 2014 at 7:42am

I live in the flat land part of Indiana, but S. Ind. is hilly.

Felaine, you mentioned Florida insects--don't forget "no see-ums". They bite and cause one to scratch like crazy.

Mindy, Dot ran off while I was working on my 4 acres of prairie grass on the family farm. I was frantic in trying to find her. After 2 hours, I gave up. Checked my phone messages as soon as I got home, and voila, the "dog pound" had her!! Someone called and they came and got her. Whew. I guess after only 2 weeks, she wasn't as attached to me as I thought. But, she stays home, outdoors all day and night here at home. No fence necessary--yet, actually, never.

I like my privacy also.  That's why I'm trying to find a place in the country that I can afford (and that's warm).

Comment by Plinius on August 16, 2014 at 6:01am

Welcome in the neighborhood, Carl! I won't electrify the fence!
