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.

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris on Sunday. 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!

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

   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

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 Replies

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

All 5, Spud.

Job interview tomorrow. It's only 8 weeks work but every little helps. It will involve getting up at 4 a.m. though.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 7, 2016 at 12:02pm

Thanks Carl.

Same here, Spud.  I see all five symbols.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 7, 2016 at 10:38am

Thanks Chris.

Comment by Plinius on December 7, 2016 at 10:33am

All five of them, Spud!

And you're right, Kathy, better to have loved and lost...

Sending kind cat vibes to all dogs...

Yesterday I posted 2 comments that never showed-up, but I'll try again.

In the gardening group, Daniel said he could see my apple computer symbol on his tablet, but not his laptop, so I ask that group if they could see the symbols I post properly or not.  As there is more of you peeps posting here, I would appreciate any of you that can tell me how my symbols show on your computer, to give me an idea of whether to use them or not.  I'll put the symbol one space after the last word:

Here is my apple computer symbol   

Temperature degree symbol °

Smaller temp degree symbol ˚

Cent symbol ¢

Infinity symbol ∞

Ohm symbol Ω

Randy, like you, I feel so sorry for those cats and dogs in the commercials.  I would like to have one, but with my personality, and low income, it would not be a good thing.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 7, 2016 at 7:29am

I need to hug and play with my dog more often. I sometimes take her for granted (or "granite", as my sister used to say). I see those Humane Society commercials and feel sad for the dogs and cats. A local TV station had a story about a Comcast man picking up and taking home a stray dog (pit bull?). That dog was so "appreciative" and loving. That's what makes me want to hug my dog (Dot).

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 7, 2016 at 7:29am

We lost a pooch last year, and felt so lucky that she took her leave at home in bed. You always think you're never going to get another dog. Then finally one day remembering them brings a smile, and you do get another one, and it's always worth it.

Comment by k.h. ky on December 7, 2016 at 12:12am
Daniel, us dog lovers always want what's best for them. If they can pass quietly at home that would be wonderful. I wish that for you and yours.
I've never been that fortunate. It's always been traumatic and unexpected. Seizures in one, cancer in two, a heart attack with another. And these are dogs with regular vet care and the necessary preventatives. I grieve hard. Swear I'll never get another. Then always do. I tell my gdaughters that the time we had with them is more than worth the pain of losing them.
