Hang With Friends

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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Thursday. 10 Replies

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Thanks again, everyone, for all your support and kindness. You really are a great bunch of friends.

My sister is healing well but she's not feeling as good as me. For her personally, she has a hard time tolerating pain medication and it really knocks her out and robs her of energy. She's been like a zombie. Everyone is different. I tolerate the meds just fine. She's switching to Tylenol during the day and the narcotic only before bed.

Great, Carl! Is your sister doing as wel as you?

Comment by Randall Smith on November 17, 2015 at 7:30am
Yippee yahoo, Carl!! Won't be long before you're back to your old self. You're invited to drive down I-65 to Lafayette, take a left, and visit rural Indiana at its finest. You need a getaway.
The invitation extends to one and all!
Comment by Ian Mason on November 17, 2015 at 1:57am

That was quick, Carl and now you're in no danger of catching a nasty 'hospital' infection.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on November 16, 2015 at 10:37pm

Welcome home from the hospital, Flying Atheist!

I think these roses manage fine over Winter. Some varieties are quite hardy, and take freezing of their late Fall flowers in stride. It was another mild day.

Carl! You are a wonder! Home, and ready for a second chance at life! The phenomenon of successful organ transplants seems like a miracle ... a miracle of science and scientists at their best. As Larry says, "You got 'er did!"

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on November 16, 2015 at 9:44pm

Glad to hear it, Carl! There's no place like home!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 16, 2015 at 9:18pm
Wow! Beautiful, Ruth, but just not right Pennsylvania in November. Will this situation affect them negatively next year?

BTW, everyone, I was released from the hospital this evening. Feeling really good and getting better each passing day.
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on November 16, 2015 at 2:50pm

See the roses by my gym yesterday. :)

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on November 15, 2015 at 8:28pm

Hey, Randall. How about a picture of you holding your grandson.

It's Mid-November in Philly, and the lawns are Summer lush from recent rain. Roses are also blooming and making new buds.
