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.

Anyone here ever run onto an apologist by the name of Ravi Zacharias?  I've seen his name dropped multiple times on YouTube as supposedly being THE ONE APOLOGIST that no atheist wants to cross swords with, because of his facility with christian…Continue

attacking ideas (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Apr 4. 1 Reply

Attacking ideas is a considerable portion of what we as atheists do.  Why attack ideas?  Ideas earn attack when they don't serve people, not just us but those who adopt said ideas, mistakenly thinking that they have value when they don't.  Our…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Mar 28. 16 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

Great pics. Have cats evolved to match furniture?

Thanks Tony!

My mom used to have Beagles - she would love that picture - I will copy it and share it with her.

Have a great day all!

Hey guys, great dog pics! Love 'em. Getting ready to head out for work. Soon these mad hours will moderate, will have more time for you guys. Until then, this is my favorite breed, have owned 3 over my lifetime. Just adore them. Beagles.

Patricia, booklover and sk8eycat - those are great!

Thanks for making me smile this morning - drinking coffee and getting ready for work and school.

Thanks for the dog pics, guys. I especially like Tab and the animated gif (both of which I've copied). Sleep well, folks.

Yes, I think Malemutes are bigger-boned and slightly more muscular than Huskies, too.

I was a little bit off on the timing of Jasmine the Sammy's pregnancy; the puppies (6, according to the latest exam) are due this weekend, and I've been promised photos ASAP.  I promise to post the best one(s)...Jasmine is such a good mom!

Patricia, I just e-mailed the "Flower Dog" to a friend who used to breed Siberians...they don't always have blue eyes, or bi-eyes...I think about 50% have brown eyes.  Most of hers did.  The main difference (I think) is the width of the head and the size of the ears.  The puppies she bred were adorable. 

She now lives in Oregon, and is raising Samoyeds.  She only has two, both AKC champions. (BFD) She just bred the older one for the 3rd, and last, time.

Her last 2 Siberians: Amber (the mother - red) on the right, and Rainbo (bi-eyed, wolf grey) on the left. 12 years ago. This was their first real snowfall...both were born and raised in Pasadena, CA.

Booklover, cute x2

Patricia, I like the xtian guide, and I think Malamutes & Huskies are quite attractive.

Steph, I like standing for Wookie national anthem.

That dog looks like it's been at the catnip, Ruth. What breed is it, Patricia?
