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.

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Grinning Cat yesterday. 17 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

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

Atheist Pig STRIKES AGAIN!!!

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

Hi everyone,It was almost a half-century ago, at age 15 or so, that I encountered one of the more important influences in my life: a crazy group of poets/musicians who called themselves The Fugs.They had a huge impact on me in that, though raised in…Continue

Barney Frank is atheist. Thanks for the news, Loren.
Grinning Cat, your double standard post is perfect.
Sk8eycat, I love the Mr Blackwell picture. Happy cat sitting.
Ian, I’ve seen a version of charging cat with three panes, where the cats eyes are both green, then one green and one red, then both green.

I had a hectic, unproductive day. I hope all of you did better.
Good night, All.

You're lucky, Patricia, to have another friend around for the weekend as well.  I'm jealous of all the cat people here.  :)

Enjoy your cat-sitting Felaine and have a great weekend yourself.  Stay cool as a hep-cat. 

Comment by sk8eycat on August 14, 2013 at 9:45pm

I'm leaving in a few minutes, and will be away till Monday or Tuesday...cat-sitting.  what else?  I'll check back with y'all when I get home.

I'd wish everyone a cool, quiet weekend, but I don't think that's going to happen.  At least not around here...the usual August heat wave is on its way.  Gah!

What Booklover said.  I've always cheered for Barney Frank (and wondered why ANY gay or lesbian person would/could believe the dirt in the buybull...much less want to be ordained to spread it around.)

Comment by Lillie on August 14, 2013 at 4:33pm

Booklover, I could have taken a picture very similar to the cat/squirrel one of my cat looking like that at a mouse in my house.  I had to catch the mouse.

Interesting (if not horribly surprising) news: former Congressman Barney Frank has come out again ... as an atheist!

Comment by sk8eycat on August 13, 2013 at 11:28pm

My sister made this LOL

Mister Blacwell is so cute when he is angry.

Mr. Blackwell is cute when he is angry.

Remember Mr. Blackwell?  I loved his snarky comments.

Comment by Grinning Cat on August 13, 2013 at 8:15pm

Ian, so that's how cats get the energy for those 3am spurts of activity!

On a more serious note: (seen in multiple places on the web) Even though it's unfair to equate all Christians with science deniers, this picture does point out an all-too-common double standard.

Christians when the topic is science: 'Evolution? The Big Bang? Global Warming? Being born gay? They are all just theories! I need tons more proof than that!' Christians when the topic is Christianity: 'Proof? You don't need proof! That's why it's called faith! No evidence required!'

Have we seen this one before?
