Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Went into the chat room last Friday night, for the first time in a while, and learned that Mequa passed away. I had been good friends with him for a time, but we had differences and stopped talking back in the spring of this year. I knew however,…Continue

That's funny.  I wonder how long that dog is going to chase his leash.  Perhaps until he's too pooped to poop.

Comment by Randall Smith on January 28, 2015 at 8:40am

How long can one watch it before dizziness sets it? Whew!

What started the chase....maybe?

A polar bear chase would be very scary.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 27, 2015 at 3:40pm

Patricia, I thoroughly enjoyed your photos, as usual. I wonder how the polar bear chase ended!?

There are actually quite a few notable and well-known atheists who have profiles on Atheist Nexus, but most are pretty much inactive.  I guess they are busy fighting the good fight on our behalf.  Many have their own blogs, podcasts and books.

Randy, I didn't notice that Newdow joined A/N. I look forward to reading his posts. 

Comment by Randall Smith on January 27, 2015 at 7:19am

Didja all notice that Mike Newdow joined A/N? He's the famous atheist that has been trying to have the "In God We Trust" removed from our currency. He's also fought many other battles on behalf of atheism. Google him for more information.

I've always liked gaga. But that is the stupidest name ever. She and Bennett are great together.
Comment by Randall Smith on January 26, 2015 at 7:54am

Loved the Ella, Joan! Oscar Peterson on piano. I saw bassist Ray Brown at Indianapolis' Jazz Kitchen about 16 years ago. My kind of jazz.                                                                              Ian, we watched the Bennett/Gaga show here in the states, too. I heard they were together again in Copenhagens' Tivoli Gardens sometime this year. (I was there 46 years ago!) The Lady surprised me--no Ella, but good.
