Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 884
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)

Started by Loren Miller on Thursday. 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

"The Lord is our God; the Lord is One." "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me." "There is no god but Allah, and Mohamed is his prophet." Assertions, taught as fact, but without any form of corroborative…Continue

And how are YOU doing, Carl?

Kathy, I'm so glad to hear the good news that there's no bad news!  I hope your new medication changes work well for you. 

Yeah, I love the parking spaces at the church also.  A good zinger!

Glad to hear your good news Kathy.

I'm glad that's all it was, Kathy.

Joan, just got back. They didn't find anything. Changed some meds around and added another.

I was expecting the worse but new policy is you must go to the office to get results of labs and test. Just another way of charging more money.
Comment by Joan Denoo on September 6, 2016 at 12:00pm

Kathy, have you heard the report from your doctor, yet? I'm thinking of you. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on September 5, 2016 at 1:00pm

Daniel - so sorry that you're at this stage with your beloved companion. We lost a dog last fall, and we felt very fortunate that she checked out at home in bed. Even though it's an inevitable part of the whole deal, it's always one of the worst things in the world to go through. After a while the memories start to bring a smile again.

On a brighter note my gson and his husband came and spent the evening and night Fri. They fly between az and ky because of their work. So we don't get to see his husband much. He's a lovely young man and they seem well suited to each other. My gson asked if they could spend the night here because it would have made his family uncomfortable had they spent the night with any of them. But they were meeting up with friends in this area the following morning for a day trip.By staying here they knocked an hour drive off in the am. We had a wonderful time.
