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.

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Pretty damn obvious the gawd/jeezuzz/praying thing ain't workin'!!!!!

Comment by Patricia on September 5, 2017 at 2:42pm

We keep the windows/doors closed & run the a/c. I only go out when I must during the bad days, wear a mask, & keep the trip as short as possible.

The large Elephant Hill fire is still going strong with more evacs, but that is south of us. Many schools did not start today.

We don't hear much about our local fires now, but we still have plenty of aircraft going over all the time so they're not done.

Chemo left me with some breathing issues, so I have to avoid what I can.

Comment by Patricia on September 5, 2017 at 1:35pm

Yes, the smoke is terrible & absolutely everywhere.

When its bad here, masks are in order, because its so smelly & burns uncomfortably, not to mention what it is doing to the breathing.

When I stepped outside in the dark this morning, my attention was attracted to the full moon being colored orange.  I figured it was because of smoke from the fires around here.

It was confirmed when I went out after sunrise and saw the smoke obscuring the hills.  Not much.  I can't even smell it.  It's nothing compared to Canada and other places, but it's what's happening here.  I took a picture of the moon, but didn't get it.  Took a pix of the hills being obscured with smoke and here it is:

Kathy, I like the prayer & masturbation comparison.  

I also like your daughter story.

Ian, a friend told me if she had known gkids were this much fun she would have had them first :)

You are in for the best times of your life.
Comment by Ian Mason on September 4, 2017 at 10:40pm

People tell me that grandchildren are life's dessert, Joan and I'm really looking forward to it.

Well put, Kathy. A vulgar term for someone useless in British English is 'wanker' so it fits very well.

I remember when my gdaughter was about six. I would be sitting at the computer reading something on Atheist Nexus and she would be standing behind me reading along. I wouldn't notice her until she asked me what a word meant.
I don't know what brought that to mind.

Joan, you nailed it.
