Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Saturday

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.

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

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

The state of Oklahoma has numerous earthquakes that are attributed to fracking.

It's such a horrible process.  Extracting more fossil fuel to burn and wasting and contaminating water at the same time.  How sad.

I've never experienced an earthquake or tremor.  

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 4, 2017 at 12:19am

  In my experience, the only times when earthquakes are dangerous is in the city, or near tall structures. But in the case like an  earthquake at Diablo Canyon Power Plant no place is safe.

Did the air smell fresh on the water?

That look horrendous, Joan. I remember hearing in Nuuk, Greenland that more bears are heading south from the Arctic in search of food.

Spud, any of the quakes related to fracking? There was a report earlier this year that seemed to find a link between the two.

I don't think the super rich can comprehend what reality is.

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 3, 2017 at 2:36pm

...and toss in Donald Trump and his cronies, Joel Olsteen, Jeff L. Payne, and crybaby Nazi Christopher Cantwell....

With everything else going on, may as well toss in a few earthquakes too.

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 3, 2017 at 1:05pm

Thomas, no, Idaho gets earthquakes quite often, but they're usually small.  The largest of this group was 5.3, which is more powerful than usual I think.
