Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 878
Latest Activity: on Tuesday

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.

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on Monday. 6 Replies

I don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Learning a Language as a Mature Adult

Started by Daniel W. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 2. 28 Replies

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris Feb 19. 14 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

Such Lyrics!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Grinning Cat Feb 13. 9 Replies

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

Questions......

Started by Thomas Murray. Last reply by k.h. ky Feb 9. 6 Replies

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

Joan told she was free to leave the hospital, but she'll go to her family first, I guess.

If you find that refresh button, Ruth, please tell me where? I try to get things off my list of challenges, but it grows longer.....

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on April 22, 2015 at 4:36pm

I miss Joan too, Ian.

LOL on your grandmother anecdote, k.h. ky!

Had a cardio stress test and echocardiogram today. It looks as if I just crossed the threshold from young-old to old-old, by adding heart patient to my otherwise lengthy list of challenges. I need a refresh button.

Meanwhile hubby goes to get a total knee replacement tomorrow. We got a rental stair lift installed.

Hello folks. Been in England for the weekend. Saw some family, 4 generations of them from Old Dear in a care home to wide-eyed toddlers wondering who the strange man was. Feeling refreshed and renewed now.

I miss Joan. Hope she's doing well.

Some grandmother, Kathy!

Comment by k.h. ky on April 18, 2015 at 11:37pm
Ruth, that is just so sweet!!
I could pass along a remedy of my grandmother's. She drank a mixture of 2% water with 98% whiskey. She lived to be 98 and was never sick a day in her life. But, she did lay out under the front porch a lot ;)
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on April 18, 2015 at 9:56pm

Pass this on to Joan, please Laura.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 16, 2015 at 6:52am

Loren, the message to space was neat and the marketing was not bad until I watched their "behind the scenes" video.  There they bagged about their cars something terrible.  Indicating that no other car could have done the job.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 16, 2015 at 6:49am

Thanks Laura.

Comment by Loren Miller on April 16, 2015 at 6:38am

Hey, Laura, thanks for the heads-up.  Please wish Joan my VERY best and that she Gets Well SOON!

Comment by Grinning Cat on April 16, 2015 at 1:45am
