Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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.

attacking ideas (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Apr 4. 1 Reply

Attacking ideas is a considerable portion of what we as atheists do.  Why attack ideas?  Ideas earn attack when they don't serve people, not just us but those who adopt said ideas, mistakenly thinking that they have value when they don't.  Our…Continue

The following is one of TheraminTrees' most thorough-going pieces, wherein he looks at the process and techniques whereby a "religious" organization (which will sound VERY familiar to most of us, once introductions are made!) takes a person who…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Mar 28. 16 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

The nativity scenes and menorah are a lot of fun.

Good for you, Kathy. It pays to be stubborn when dealing with companies.

I love the nativity scenes, Daniel!

I refused their warranty too. Lol

Well, I have to say, it's quite an improvement of picture quality and size  with 48" HD television! I'm ashamed I waited this long. I thought the flat screens distorted shapes, making people look fat. Plus, I thought new TVs cost over $1000. Wrong on all counts. I also purchased from DISH a surge protector and warranty so I don't have to mess with what Kathy went through.

I let my Boston terrier out earlier this evening and when I let her back in there were two eggs, unbroken, laying in front of the door ! I picked them up and, told her good girl. About thirty minutes later she made another trip outside and layed another, unbroken egg, in front of the door. I bragged on her and gave her a treat. Another trip out and another egg, this time broken but still in the shell, in front of the door! I can't wait to see what she does tomorrow. During the summer, when the hens were running free, they slacked off laying. Or so I thought. I wonder how many she broke bringing them to the house. If any. I found two outside the coop a few weeks ago, unbroken, and just thought my youngest gdaughter had dropped them. Sweet E is the most gentle dog. If she finds anything, unusual like a baby raccoon or turtle, alive outside she comes for me and takes me where it is. She sits and barks. Once. Boston's are the sweetest dogs I've ever had. I have to remove the squeakers from their toy's or they won't play with them. They don't like the sound of anything in distress.

Thanks QM. I enjoyed it :)

Ian seems as if the entire world has gone nuts.

Randy, on dealing with dish network. Two of my wins. I needed a ten year old remote replaced. Dish assured me they would be happy to replace it. For fifteen dollars. I told them they could replace it for free or I would change service providers that I wasn't paying them a nickel. The service rep said they would wave the fee and I would only have to pay ten dollars shipping. I said 'either replace it or don't but, again, I'm not paying you a nickel'. They shipped it at no charge.
Two months later the inside receiver went out. The dish service provider offered to replace it for only two hundred and fifty dollars. Plus shipping. I told them exactly the same thing. Either do it or don't but I'm not paying you anything! They shipped it. With a prepaid mailing label to return the old one.
And it wasn't an idle threat. They charge far to much in the first place. And they are responsible for worn out equipment.
I would have changed providers in an instant if they tried to charge me.

Those are some really great nativities.  I liked “When from the East, the Raptors came…”   Just a carpet of raptors.  lol

I own the Halloween decoration of the ghost holding the pumpkin and the skull shown in one of the photos.  It lights up my living room every October!

Kathy, yes, that's a great victory won at Standing Rock.

I thought the dogs were adorable, but liked several.  The Godzilla-eats-Baby-Jesus or the naked guys would be great in the front yard.
