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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Thanks for Elgar, Loren! Too long ago that I heard that wonderful piece.

And I love the squished cat! Reminds me of the first cat I met:

Patricia, thanks for the video of the kitties you're cat-sitting. Was that a vacuum cleaner in the background?

booklover, I loved that squished cat LOL, thanks.

Welcome back Idaho Spud and Steph.

This is particularly for Joan ... but also for anyone who is moved by music.  This is "Nimrod" from Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations:



Please listen.  Please enjoy

Those are cute pics. I've been getting caught up on my rest. Will be trying to get back to the site like usual. How is everyone? Sure do you miss all of you.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 15, 2013 at 9:22am

I'm baaaaaack!   Perhaps I can respond to some of the multiple threads on here now that my soil-modifying work is done.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 15, 2013 at 9:19am

Mindy, I agree with what you told you daughter to do to that guy. Too bad those sex hormones make most of us (extra) stupid as teenagers.

Ha ha ha.  That adopted squished cat is funny!

Barney Frank is atheist. Thanks for the news, Loren.
Grinning Cat, your double standard post is perfect.
Sk8eycat, I love the Mr Blackwell picture. Happy cat sitting.
Ian, I’ve seen a version of charging cat with three panes, where the cats eyes are both green, then one green and one red, then both green.

I had a hectic, unproductive day. I hope all of you did better.
Good night, All.

You're lucky, Patricia, to have another friend around for the weekend as well.  I'm jealous of all the cat people here.  :)

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 14, 2013 at 9:54pm

Enjoy your cat-sitting Felaine and have a great weekend yourself.  Stay cool as a hep-cat. 

Comment by sk8eycat on August 14, 2013 at 9:45pm

I'm leaving in a few minutes, and will be away till Monday or Tuesday...cat-sitting.  what else?  I'll check back with y'all when I get home.

I'd wish everyone a cool, quiet weekend, but I don't think that's going to happen.  At least not around here...the usual August heat wave is on its way.  Gah!
