Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 865
Latest Activity: on Thursday

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.

Some William Blake to Ponder

Hello all,I'm new here, and so hope this isn't old hat. But, I just had to point you toward a marvelous poem by William Blake in case you've never read it. Despite his sometimes heavily tinged biblical references in his other art and poetry, this…Continue

God's Not Dead - The Christian Persecution Complex (The Thinking Atheist)

Doubtless most if not all of you have heard about that sorry piece of cinema known as God's Not Dead, and perhaps its sequel, cleverly entitled: God's Not Dead 2 (wow, how original!).  Personally, I have wasted neither time nor money on either,…Continue

The Value of Atheist Nexus ... and of Keeping Contact

I don't know about you, but the last 24+ hours were VERY uncomfortable for me.  Why?  Because something I value a LOT, being Atheist Nexus and the people I care about on A|N were temporarily unavailable to me.  No, we're not Facebook; I don't think…Continue

There was a little mouse leaving its black specks from kitchen to bathroom and seemed to like the room I slept in at Laura's. I could hear him/her climbing around on the inner springs. The dogs and cats knew there was something that smelled good, but they couldn't catch it. 

We brought in super mouser, Journey, and the only thing she caught was eating my nose, ear, hair, toes, eyebrows and biting my body through the blankets. She is very young and very physically active. I suppose I got some sleep the two nights we had her in for the big hunt, but not very much. So we returned her to her home at my grand-daughter's where she does a tremendous job with mice, moles and crickets. 

Her markings are quite remarkable, very similar to Bengal cat breeds. As far as we know, she is a farm cat from farm cats. 

Here are some Bengal cat markings:

We looked at four Mummers Fancy Brigades and deleted the rest, too boring. Hercules is getting to us in Phila now.

Hippo Gnu Ears ebry-buddies!

Did anyone watch the Rose Parade?  I slept till 11:30 AM.  It was noisy around here last night for hours...sounded like a war zone.  Whatever happened to churches ringing their bells at midnight?  They ought to do something useful once in a while.

Carl, happy to learn you feel better and rested. 

2014! a great sound rolling off the tongue! Changes ahead will keep us up on our toes. There will no boring days ahead.

Thanks Ian. Reposting Patrick Steward as Jean-Luc Picard. He knows the difference between wishing and thinking with action.

Ian and Mindy - those are great.

Happy New Year everyone !!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 1, 2014 at 11:34am

Thanks, everyone, for all your caring comments.  I really don't "feel" sick, and my sinuses already seem to be clearing up.  I had a good nights sleep......in bed at 11:15pm and up this morning about 8:30am.   

Love the Star Trek and the imaginary Christ memes.

Mindy, good one!   Too all, a good new year.
