Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 849
Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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.

Went into the chat room last Friday night, for the first time in a while, and learned that Mequa passed away. I had been good friends with him for a time, but we had differences and stopped talking back in the spring of this year. I knew however,…Continue

Steven Weinberg on his anti-theism

I've had the same problem, with black video boxes. But I thought it was my computer and didn't report it to Brother Richard.

BTW, it's 67 ° here in Bensalem, PA. We opened the back door for the breeze. Happy Jan 30th.

Thanks Grinning.  I like "Our story in 2 minutes".

Melinda, I think there may be a problem with the A/N website lately.  For the past month or so I've been getting black boxes and videos that won't play as well.  It usually corrects itself if I refresh the page. 

Good morning, everyone.  I've been a bit absent from here lately.  Away from my computer because I've been working a lot, but I always catch up with all your posts and updates when I'm back in town.  Great hearing from all of you.  :)

The Cat duet went well with my first cup of coffee, thanks Sk8eycat! My cats didn't come and watch...

Strange weather indeed! Snow and ice last week and today heavy rain and temperatures of 50 Fahrenheit!

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 30, 2013 at 12:45am

Thanks, Felaine! Even though Rossini didn't write it as a cat duet, a lot of it is music from Rossini's Otello, and it's good for a smile from this cat and music lover!

Another performance I enjoyed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dI2qnavDzng

And IMSLP has the sheet music to download for free. <grin!>

This link may have been posted here before, but it's so much fun, I thought I'd share it again:

It turns out there already is a thread about "Church Signs" in the group "Fundies Say the Darndest Things!"

(I found another positive church sign today; I'll post it there.)

Cute cat busy trying to unroll the tp, booklover! The bit in his mouth makes it so precious. I'm a homebody too.

Sleep well, everyone. We had a lovely sunny  day in the mid 50's here in PA.

Joan, that is a great quote about religious doubt being reason trying to free you!

On another note, here's a video a friend pointed me to, a well-done rapid-fire montage of history of our planet and our species: "Our story in 2 minutes".
