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.

God's Annual Performance Review (Betty Bowers)

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

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......

   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

Chris, I have neglected reading my mail until just now. The condition you found your aunt in is all too familiar. Thankfully, she had you to protect her and make sure she is safe and in loving hands. It is not an easy thing you and your husband do, I respect you all the more , even as my fondness and regard for you is at the highest level. Thinking of you, hoping you are healthy and having some fun as well.

I like your daughter's good news Mindy.

Waving to all of you!

Good morning everyone! This day is a splendid one, cool weather, nice for doing the fall cores, the sky is blue, my tomatoes are ripening nicely and with luck the cover I use will protect them through the first killing frost, which we haven't had yet. Yesterday was herb harvest day. Today is cutting back some of the perennials. I can't remember ever being happier. 

@Randy, your comments delight me, I always look to see what you have to write. Your stories of the loss of your long time dog friend and the acquisition of your new one, Dot, feels real to me, the pain and pleasure available to A/N friends. 

@Chris, I would like to see a selfie you took of you and your aunt. , if that isn't too personal. I think of you often and am so glad you can visit and not have responsibility for her daily care. 

Mindy, Happy day with your daughter home for a day. Dood news of her happiness with both her school and her job. She sounds like she is on a level track now. I wish her great success. A promotion already! She must be GOOD. Of course, she has such a lovely face and I am sure a delightful personality, if she is anything like her mother.  

Good health to all, with happy times, contented feelings, great family and friends to keep you company. 

I'm off to the garden, see you this evening.

Fantastic when things fall just in the right place! Congrats Mindy!

Try to bore us, Randall! I like to listen to you. How old your father is! And still some communication too! Good for you.

I visited Aunt today. I took a few selfies of her and me but she can't recognize herself anymore.

(...happy to see me)

Comment by Randall Smith on October 5, 2014 at 7:44am

Yes, Chris, all my groups have been "quiet" recently. Joan seems pretty active with blogs and groups, but otherwise....

I've been silent here because I'm not a cat person and I can't listen (and respond) to music videos.  Plus, I live a rather dull life and don't wish to bore readers.

There's a country church a half mile (0.3k) down the road. They'll ring a church bell at 9. It's a chilly--near frost--morning. It doesn't look inviting for my Sunday morning walk with the dog. But the sun is out, so we'll see. Going to visit my 96 yr old father this PM. He always seems happy to see him (and visa versa).

Comment by Plinius on October 5, 2014 at 2:00am

A very good imitator, Patricia!

How is everyone? You're all very quiet. I hope you've got something nice to do.

Sunday morning 9 o'clock here - everything still quiet but I can hear some churchbells. I'll write lessons today.

As well as musical instruments.
