Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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

TheraminTrees has recently begun producing a new series of YouTube videos, which added to a wonderful library of earlier observations regarding his experience of religion. Good as all those pieces are, I personally think they pale against this…Continue

8-cat, hope you don't mind me shortening your handle.  I still can't remember how to spell it.  I agree with everything you said about HillBilly Graham-Cracker (love that name for him!).

The bible is so contradictory and unclear, but even if it were clear, it would still prove nothing.

Ruth, glad you came-out OK.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 30, 2012 at 11:24am

Thanks, everybody. I appreciate your concern.

Comment by Steph S. on October 30, 2012 at 11:11am

We were worried about you Ruth! So glad to hear from you and know that you are safe and doing well.

Comment by Lillie on October 30, 2012 at 11:10am

Glad you are safe, Ruth.  Hope everyone is.

Good to hear from you so soon, Ruth.  Glad you managed through with minimal problems. 

Comment by Ian Mason on October 30, 2012 at 1:24am

Glad to hear that, Ruth.

Comment by Plinius on October 30, 2012 at 1:01am

I'm glad you're all right, Ruth!

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 30, 2012 at 12:53am

Ruth, I am so glad to get your message and learn you seem to be over the worst of the storm. Did you mean to write "transformers"? That would be my guess. Glad you kept power. Still thinking about you and wishing you safety and comfort. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 30, 2012 at 12:34am

Just checking in. The worst seems to be over, and we didn't lose power. Just a few transients. Many others in our county did. So no flooded basement.

I was out of touch, busy bringing stuff up from the basement, just in case, filling buckets with water, cooking perishables, etc. I am really really happy we kept power.

Thanks for your concern.
