Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 884
Latest Activity: on Monday

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.

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 19. 0 Replies

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

And I still can't tolerate the news. The insanity of the situation still frightens me.

I finally found one thing that entertained me this week. My daughter got me a FFRF T-shirt. AND, I wore it to the elementary school family fun night with my youngest granddaughter. This is the same school that has a club called athletes christian something? Which is illegal. The principal is always talking about how 'blessed' we are. Found out he was doubly 'blessed' last year because he was caught having an affair with one of the young teachers. Lol. These are the good Christan values they brag about so much :)
I made it a point to speak to him. Yes, he noticed my shirt but didn't comment ;(

Joan, don't worry, I know it when you talk to me, thát is important! People call me so many different names, and that is not even behind my back!

Daniel takes the kitchen troubles in his stride - he couldn't have done that when he worked, I think. So congrats, Daniel, retirement works well for you!

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 19, 2016 at 2:13am

Chris, I am sorry, I misspelled your name again. I try to double check to make sure I spell it correctly and missed that one.

Your kitchen has a fine arrangement for cooking, I can tell a chef designed the space. Your food will taste as good, and your kitchen will be as it should be and this time next year we will all be laughing about Daniel's remodel-remodel. That is after you have spent all the blood, sweat, tears during the redo. 

Jut a thought, if the specs have changed, can you get grandfathered in under the old rules?

No, I don't get on a ladder to reach the top shelf. It is reserved for things that Laura and Larry and Craig can reach. I do have a bowl my grandmother made her pie dough in, on that shelf, but I don't make pie dough anymore. 

Tomorow, I am going to make some pickled beets to take to L & L Paradise Acres for Thanksgiving. My granddaughter, Laurie, is going to cook the meal.

Daniel, wouldn't it be easier to lower the stove? Or just bite the bullet and get a shorter one? That's way too much work an cost.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 18, 2016 at 2:10pm

Daniel, what a horrid bit of news. You take the chore very calmly, no help to yell, swear, beat your head against the wall. It just doesn't help get the job done. I am glad to read you take it in stride as another adventure in life. 

Please don't let that stop you from taking all those actions as you sweat over the tasks. We can hear you if you need to vent. 

I don't know, but I assume you are not a tall man and those cabinets being lower was a bit of a help. That would be true for me. I can't read the third shelf of my cupboards and have to use a step ladder. 

Whatever you do, I know it will look fine!

Your feral cats do a good job for you! And your chickens take care of your kitchen food scraps. You have 24 hour a day help that is silent, mostly, and unpaid. That is the way to go!

Daniel, I would be very bummed.  I never could understand laws that seem to be of no value. 

But I'm glad some positives will come from it.

I've only heard (not seen) Sandhill cranes fly over once so far this fall. They're waiting for a northerly wind which we haven't had. This weekend promises that occurance.

I accidentally found a pair of oppossums huddled in a trash can in my garage. They didn't appreciate being evacuated! No, I didn't kill them. And they'll be back, I'm sure. I have many nesting places, especially in my wood piles.

Have a good, cheery weekend, all.

Spud, I'm glad you like the Homestead video; I do too. I feel much better today. Here is the link to to series
