Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Saturday

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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

Daniel, love the cartoon. And my family and I did see it rain frogs once. I never thought it was gawd but it puzzled me for years. Until I read in the farmers almanac that they get swept up by rain clouds and dropped miles away. It's also been known to rain fish.

Randy, that sounds like a great trip. The people I know who have been there have loved it. Good luck with your preparations.

I used the chat room a few times but found it to be populated with those who like puerile 'jokes' so I stopped.

What's going on over in the chat room? I used to come in here on a nightly basis a couple of years ago and there were always three to six people chatting. Nowadays, the chat room is pretty much deserted all the time. Have people lost interest or is there a better atheist website to go to now?

Luck Randy.

I'm too chicken to go to most countries.  Mostly fear of doing something that will land me in jail.

Comment by Randall Smith on September 6, 2017 at 6:51am

Well, it never really struck me as a destination I wanted to visit in my lifetime, but after reading Road Scholar's trip catalog description of "The Best of China", I called them about an opening for this coming Fall trip. Surprisingly, there was one. So guess what I did? Yep, I took the plunge and signed up to go!

I'm having a little "buyer's remorse", thinking about the impulsiveness of my action and all the anxiety associated with traveling to someplace "exotic". But, what the heck. You only live once, right? I leave 6 weeks from today (Oct 18).

The itinerary includes all over China, from Beijing to Lhasa to Shanghai and points in between--three weeks total. Once I'm there, I'm sure I'll enjoy it. In the meantime, I have to get a visa, book flights, read up, etc. Wish me luck!

I love that one Daniel!

Pretty damn obvious the gawd/jeezuzz/praying thing ain't workin'!!!!!

Comment by Patricia on September 5, 2017 at 2:42pm

We keep the windows/doors closed & run the a/c. I only go out when I must during the bad days, wear a mask, & keep the trip as short as possible.

The large Elephant Hill fire is still going strong with more evacs, but that is south of us. Many schools did not start today.

We don't hear much about our local fires now, but we still have plenty of aircraft going over all the time so they're not done.

Chemo left me with some breathing issues, so I have to avoid what I can.

Comment by Patricia on September 5, 2017 at 1:35pm

Yes, the smoke is terrible & absolutely everywhere.

When its bad here, masks are in order, because its so smelly & burns uncomfortably, not to mention what it is doing to the breathing.

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 5, 2017 at 11:34am

When I stepped outside in the dark this morning, my attention was attracted to the full moon being colored orange.  I figured it was because of smoke from the fires around here.

It was confirmed when I went out after sunrise and saw the smoke obscuring the hills.  Not much.  I can't even smell it.  It's nothing compared to Canada and other places, but it's what's happening here.  I took a picture of the moon, but didn't get it.  Took a pix of the hills being obscured with smoke and here it is:
