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.

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 following is one of TheraminTrees' most thorough-going pieces, wherein he looks at the process and techniques whereby a "religious" organization (which will sound VERY familiar to most of us, once introductions are made!) takes a person who…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

Randy, I took what information you supplied: 

"'15 Toyota truck," "pyrite mica".

 

I Googled these words and came up with some leads. I chose "Images" and received a page of photos of '15 Toyota trucks, pyrite mica. 

I did a "Control + Click" and a drop down menu appeared. 

I chose "Copy Image URL". 

I pasted it into the photo box at the top of the Comment. 

As if by magic, it appeared in my comment. 

I am using Google Chrome with a MadBook Pro, if that makes any difference. 

'15

Upon reflection, I thought my "days will be getter shorter" statement of the solstice was a "glass half empty" view. I should be more upbeat. Or is it the other way around (half full)? I never did figure that one out!

Joan, yes, that's the color of my new truck! Nice work. Wish I could learn to do that.

Felaine, that is a beautiful picture for Summer Solstice. Thanks!

Happy Father's Day and Solstice one and all.

Had a senior moment today that's becoming a habit. Go to supermarket, take goods to check-out, pay and then leave one or two items behind. To be fair, my mind was on other things and I had been at work all night but this never used to happen.

I'm packed and ready (I hope) to leave for Dublin very early tomorrow. Nice :-) Return late on Saturday/early Sunday having enjoyed the cultural highspots. Be good and stay safe.

Randy, if this is the color of your new truck, I like it very much. Will it be easier to keep looking clean than the red? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 21, 2015 at 12:24pm

No Surprise here. "I side with.com" I am "strongly left wing", more liberal than other Spokane voters. 

I side with Democrats, then Green Party, then Socialist. 

I side with Green Party on Social and Domestic issues, with Democrats on all others. 

I vote more in line with Washington State Congressional District 7, which is part of Seattle, Vashon Island, Edmonds area. 

Oh Oh! I live in a conservative city in a conservative state, with a conservative family and moving to a more conservative town. Not only am I more liberal, I am more anti-religion than the place where I am moving. I will have my work cut out for me. Actually, No! I have been able to ask questions of my family and their friends and not get blown away, literally. It is the young hot heads that give me a pause.

Happy Fathers' Day to all the Dads on this site. May your day be full to overflowing of people you love and who love you, of delicious food, beautiful sights, pleasant sounds and delightful aromas. 

Today, in 31 minutes the Summer Solstice occurs. I'm harvesting garlic and soaking up the longest day of the year. Randy, I too feel a twinge of sadness that the days will now begin to shorten. 

Comment by Randall Smith on June 21, 2015 at 7:02am

Thank you, Chris, although it saddens me to know the day light hours will be decreasing.

And Happy Fathers Day to all the men out there, fathers or not. I'm treating my 97 yr old father to pizza.

Have a happy solstice!
