Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: 15 hours ago

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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Annie Willis Apr 20. 7 Replies

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

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 17. 13 Replies

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

I still love seeing GOOD dancers (and Hope did  "moon-walking" before Michael Jackson was even born. Watch carefully.)

James Cagney and Bob Hope at a Friar's Club
Meeting back when actors were real performers.
Bob Hope was 52 and James Cagney was 56.
The year was 1955.


For the young folks, here is something
you’ve probably never seen before and,
unfortunately, you may never see again.

For us older folks, this is the best of the
best, and we had it for many years! This is a side
of these two entertainers you hardly ever saw,
but it shows you their enormous talent. Bob Hope, the
best of comedians, and James Cagney, mostly
cast as the bad guy, a gangster in the movies.

Labor Day weekend here - anyone planning on anything for the holiday?

How has everyone been this week now that school is back in session?

Tea-Heeeeeeeeeeee!  I'm "past it," too, but I usually drink loose-leaf tea, just in case.  Mo' bettah.

Almost like a carrier landing????……….




Piece of cake.
 
 So much for the displaced threshold and any approach angle.
