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.

Evangelicals Breaking Up with Jesus (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat May 28. 10 Replies

Has evangelical Christianity lost sight of Christ?  Seems to me that there are a whole lot of evangelical Christians who are presuming to represent Jesus by not representing him or misrepresenting him or – let's be honest here – talking out of their…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

Men who challenge men to stop violence

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

What are their options? The aquifer that provided a necessary element for successful crops for the past 100 years is predicted to dry up in 20 years. Four generations of farmers in one family may probably not be able to last for the fifth…Continue

Is it me, or can most people on social networking sites not spell? I get acronyms, but actual misspelling, really? I'm not that old, either-not even thirty.Does this make anyone else crazy or is it just me?Continue

The following showed up this morning in my YouTube daily feed, and I have to say, it just charmed the socks off of me.  This is what animation really can do in the hands of a creative and skilled team.  Really, it's what animation has done for darn…Continue

I'd love to listen to that music while stretched out in fresh air.

Comment by Joan Denoo yesterday

Ruth, I'm sorry to learn of your mold problem. When you feel stressed, remember to stop, breathe, and think of something for which you are grateful. 

Ian, what a lovely image you share, all stretched out on the grass listening to a concert. 

Comment by Ian Mason yesterday

A lovely day yesterday. The local symphony orchestra and opera company gave a free concert in a park so I stretched out under a tree and was serenaded beautifully.

Comment by Ian Mason yesterday

Life is an obstacle race sometimes, Ruth. I hope you get it all sorted soon.

Comment by Plinius yesterday

I hate troubles like that! I hope it will be over soon, Ruth!

Comment by Patricia yesterday

Oh, not good!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner yesterday

Hi all, I haven't been around much. We found black mold almost 2 weeks ago, and it's been stressful lining up a contractor. Spent almost a thousand dollars for a dehumidifier to sends the condensate into a sump well with a long hose, and it stopped working after 6 hours. Can't get a slow leaking pipe repaired because the shut off for the whole house (outside) is clogged with dirt. The water company said they'd deal with it in 3 weeks. Went through two basement water companies, who each tried to sell us something we didn't need. Monday is scheduled for mold remediation The last 2 days we've been clearing out the basement to create space for a wall to be removed. Tomorrow more work, sorting and marking stuff they can carry to a huge dumpster that will arrive Mon. I might not spend any time here till it's all finished, maybe Wed. The HEPA filters we've been running have probably helped to protect us so far.

Succes, Randall! Luca and I are cleaning the building today, a common project with the neighbours. Pizza afterwards.

Comment by Randall Smith yesterday

Ol' Granddad here is "babysitting" his 3 grandchildren (ages 3-9) overnight tonight. I think I can handle it. If I could manage 6 classrooms per day full of 12-13 year olds for 33 years, this should be a piece of cake.

And I've seen too many grown-ups with the symptoms you describe. Often they don't know hat's wrong with them.

As they say - it takes one to know one...
