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.

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

Well your kids were kids & we expect them to do things like that until they outgrow it.

All your words about that creep are all right on.

I got a laugh in hospital.....The aides came along to give me a bed bath, along with the comment about getting the iodine washed off my right side, saying they didn't want any resemblance between me & that orange idiot in the US.

When my three kids were little we camped on the St. Joe River. Cary and Craig were playing on a gravel bar of the river some distance from Laura who was playing on a sand bar. She slipped and fell into the river and claimed that Craig pushed her. 

Does that not sound like Trump and his claim about Hillary?

Childish behavior, immature, babyish, infantile, juvenile, puerile; silly, inane, jejune, foolish, irresponsible, boyish, baby, naive, simplistic, and superficial!

Comment by Patricia on November 1, 2017 at 5:26pm cute, & cuddly.

  People who were involved with the Nixon Watergate (Carl Bernstein, James Dean, and others) have said there are remarkable parallels between Watergate and Trump Administration. I have the feeling that the big difference between the two and that the Trump supporters really don't care about the crimes committed under his watch because they are spiteful people. They are angry at Obama, and angry that Hilary wasn't indicted. They are hateful people who feel are licensed under Trump to lash out with their religious and political machinery to suppress the minorities. It was said that the majority of Trump supporters were the under-educated people but the fact is many are college educated and earn over 80K per year.

I want, & hope to see majors falls that they will never recover from.

Comment by Thomas Murray on November 1, 2017 at 3:03pm


With the Trumpism times, thing were moving too slow to get Trump impeached but since the indictment last Monday and the White House with its goons crashing is is a full speed and gaining momentum. Even Facebook is feeling the wrath from Al Franken for its with Russian ads involvement in the election crisis.

Aw dats so cute GC! Thanks!

I just really hope the charges stick, & that is just the beginning of many. That bloody orange yahoo is destroying everything in sight at such a pace its hard to keep up.

I had no internet in hospital & its amazing how much can be missed in 4 days......even with Rick trying to update me.

Sorry you can't use common NSAIDs for pain relief, Patricia!

Have some more hugs!

And yes, Paul Manafort and Rick Gates were indicted on money laundering and other charges, and George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. These are the first of many dominoes, I hope!

Comment by Patricia on November 1, 2017 at 11:13am

Aw, such good hugs too.

Rick & Chadd have really picked up the reins here. Rick makes all the meals, Chadd drives him to the grocery store. Of course the housekeeping does all the cleaning here, which helps guard against infection.

I'm hearing now that charges are being laid in the US?
