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.

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…Continue

The Ark Encounter: A Less than Grand Opening (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Tuesday. 4 Replies

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 18. 10 Replies

Seth Andrews has been through the mill as it comes to dealing with those who insist that their faith in a deity is not just valid but necessary to their lives and to all lives.  Having dealt with that gauntlet and come out the other side an atheist,…Continue

We Are America / Love Has No Labels (John Cena - Ad Council)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 10. 3 Replies

It seems to be a repeating pattern: I wander around the internet and inevitably, I stumble onto all manner of stuff.  It happens all the time on YouTube, and as you doubtless have deduced, yours truly tripped over something a couple minutes ago,…Continue

NBC News Gives Ken Ham Free Advertising

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Jul 2. 13 Replies

Ordinarily I toggle between CBS News with Scott Pelley and NBC News with Lester Holt in the early evening, mostly to avoid commercials, but I'm wondering if I should give ABC's news division another chance after this evening's broadcast.  NBC…Continue

Spring is good. It's sort-of on the way in Denmark, coquettish and giving us the cold shoulder between the sunny spells.

I've seen 3 bio-pics in the last week: Mr. Turner, The Imitation Game and Theory of Everything. All different and all very good. Time and money well spent.

Congrats Randall! I hope there's a good year for you in store.

For some reason, Indiana is a major flyway for Sandhill cranes. They go right over my house. And yesterday, there must have been thousands flying noisily north. They stay at a preserve (Jasper Pulaski) north of me about 60 miles for a moth or so, before flying further north. Amazing birds. Certainly a sign of Spring! Supposed to hit 70 today--Hurray!

If you want more accuracy than 3.1415, then wait until 9:26 PM.  Wait another 53 seconds and you'll be at 3.141592653

Happy pi day! (More precisely than usual: it's 3/14/15.)

(More pi, pies, and pirate pie-rats in "Food")

I procrastinated long enough. So yesterday, I did my taxes. They're easy to do, despite 3 sources of income (S.S., teacher pension, stock market investments). And, the best part, I get a refund!

Have a great weekend, all.

I especially liked "Love has no religion."

Comment by Ian Mason on March 12, 2015 at 3:53am

Congratulations, Randall.

Yes indeed, Joan. Love is love.

Comment by Plinius on March 12, 2015 at 2:20am

Love has no labels - beautiful, Joan!
