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

Anybody else hate Daylight Savings Time?  Sign Here:
http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/End_Daylight_Savings_Time/?cHnwoeb

They need a million signatures...from all over the world The  petition was started by a Canadian; I remember how ghastly DST is in the northern latitudes.

My first summer with HOI, we rehearsed in Minot ND, and it was daylight, or twilight, till nearly midnight. We had to get up at 6AM to have time to shower and have breakfast [in a smallish hotel] to get to the arena on time, and then spend the next 8+ hours skating our bunz off.  How the *bleep* can a person get enough sleep under those conditions?

YES! Kill DST!  Only Arizona has any sense; they ignore it.

Joan thank for the James Randi link - I have his book. He is awesome at debunking nonsense and thanks for the beauty of science.

Spud love the Dalmations - very cute cartoon.

Ruth thank for Splaterday - funny. Yes it seems like the rich are in control of everything.

Joan love the cat and dog - very cute.

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Saturday.

"UR getting to the point, right?" reminds me of when I used to sit in church and be subjected to those long boring sermons.  Wish I could get all of that wasted time back.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 9, 2013 at 3:05pm

Joan, thanks for the Symphony of Science and Beauty of Science videos. Great stuff.

I agree with you whole-heartedly in your view of the world situation. I wonder what kind of society my daughter will live in when she's my age in 30 years time and I'm not sure it will be a better one.
