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

Mindy, I'm very sorry to hear of the problems you are having with your old friend.

I can relate to being worried about her doing something to hurt you.  When I get into disagreements with people, even lesser disagreements than you had, I worry quite a bit.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 28, 2014 at 2:55am

Mindy, I am very happy to learn that yur daughter is doing so well! You must be very proud of hers growth!

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 28, 2014 at 2:49am

Spud, I need an ending to that cartoon as well. A long pause, and nothing came to mind. So, I hope she can explain it.  I am so bad at jokes and don't think up things fast enough to be effective

But you did very well, Mindy! It looks like your ex-friend tried to punish you for her own problems, and then there is no other way than insisting your behaviour is correct and changing your number. It's almost pleasant to cut loose someone who wants to control your life. Enjoy the extra space!

Booklover, sometimes you have to cut them loose. I cut ties with a friend of 30+ years because she started calling at three in the morning drunk. It went on for several years after I'd told her nicely to not call me when she was drinking. And never call at 3am. She didn't stop so I broke it off.
Some friendships aren't worth the aggravation.

I should have added that most atheists I know became atheists because we were searching for the truth, and read the entire buybull from cover to cover. And found nothing believable.

I would add that if religion were true, its adherent would not have to bludgeon the public (by passing restrictive laws, for one thing) to convert, either.

Was doing some link-jumping off of something I saw on A|N's Amateur Radio group when I found THIS:

Seems as though the inventor of Cthulhu had it goin' on in the brainbox!

Good morning, everyone.  Hope your day is going well.  After several days of some of the most beautiful weather, it's been rather cool here and now a bit of rain is in the area.  Typical Spring.  Maybe we'll have a "normal" Spring after all.    

Loren, good stuff.  But then again, that style of music is my #1 love.  It's a co-inky-dink, but I was just listening to Tommy Dorsey's "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You" just yesterday, which I love. 

Comment by Loren Miller on April 27, 2014 at 7:53am

G'morning, gang.

Listened to the following this morning ... man, it just starts my whole day.  I'd be curious to know what it does for yours.



Enjoy!
