Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: on Friday

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.

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 19. 0 Replies

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

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!

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?

Time for a group hug for Patricia.

Comment by Patricia on October 31, 2017 at 5:53pm

Thank you very much Ian. Taking every hug given!

Just seen the news from New York. More senseless violence.

Comment by Ian Mason on October 31, 2017 at 5:37pm

Been to see a really good film. James Baldwin was such a perceptive and articulate man.

Comment by Ian Mason on October 31, 2017 at 5:36pm

Wishing you a speedy recovery, Patricia. It's a hard slog but things will get better. Hugs from me too.

I can't use any Ibuprophen, or naproxen, as it causes me some kidney failure issues.

Comment by Thomas Murray on October 31, 2017 at 2:42pm

Get well , Patricia.

After my shoulder surgery, my doctor refuse to prescribe pain killers for me and told me to use Ibuprofen 800 mg every 6-8 hours. The opiod epidemic got him paranoid.The sore pain was bad for three  weeks and I was out for three months.
