Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller yesterday. 0 Replies

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

how dogma pollutes discourse (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

"The Lord is our God; the Lord is One." "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me." "There is no god but Allah, and Mohamed is his prophet." Assertions, taught as fact, but without any form of corroborative…Continue

Bertold, ever since you posted a pic of yourself in your avatar I've been meaning to say, "Hello.  Nice to see you."

Spud, I recently discovered audio books on this website:  https://archive.org/details/audio_bookspoetry

They are free because they are in the public domain and are read by amateurs.   

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 18, 2014 at 7:40am

I loved reading books when I was young.  Had many awards from school for the number of books I'd read.  In my teenage years, I devoured stack of Science Fiction books.  

Because of my bad eyes, and bum that doesn't like sitting too long, I don't read much anymore, but do manage to read some on evolution and some atheist books.

Reading is not as necessary as it once was, due to audio books and Youtube.

I'll second that, Randall. If I had a soul, I'd sell it to have McConnell lose, just so I wouldn't have to hear his whiny voice any more. I should be more sympathetic, I guess. I think he suffers from obsessive-repulsive disorder.

Comment by Randall Smith on September 18, 2014 at 7:33am

I love reading books. Now into a Robert E. Lee biography. Marvelous.

K.H., gee I hope McConnell loses. Don't like him. In fact, I can't think of a single Republican I do like! Arrogant SOBs.

Mitch McConnell must be running scared. For the first time in over thirty years l received a solicitation from the republican party.
Let's go Grimes{d} ky.!!

Patricia, that is wonderful.
Comment by Plinius on September 17, 2014 at 9:59am

I love that one, Mindy! I love to live in a house full of books: all of them windows on other worlds.

Is that workhorses dragging farming equipment?

Comment by Randall Smith on September 17, 2014 at 7:35am

One of the highlights of my youth was watching the harness races at the county fair. Our area (NC Indiana) was once famous for its trotters and pacers (see, like the Indiana Pacers basketball franchise). Anybody ever hear of Dan Patch, world record holder?
