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.

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris 5 hours ago. 14 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

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

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 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

Ian, what a fabulous day!  You must be worn out.  That is one FULL schedule.  That's like a weeks worth of activities crammed into one day.  I had to google "Branston pickle."  Sounds tasty.  What are some of your favorite ways to use it? 

And congratulations on 10 years of sobriety.  Milestones like that are worthy of recognition.   --Carl

Just got home from a really nice afternoon evening. 1) visit to an art gallery and enjoyed coffee and a (very young) music student concert in their cafe. 2) concert hall for Mahler's 8th symphony for 2 orchertras, 6 choirs and a bunch of solo singers, a mammoth work. 3) out to eat with my daughter and met her boyfriend for the first time. He seems like a nice young man. 4) got a present from my daughter ( a jar of Branston pickle) on the occasion of my being 10 years sober.

If any of you have had a day half as good as mine you are a very lucky person. This is one very happy man signing off and going to bed.

Tony, I enjoyed the pipers.  I actually learned to play saxophone in a program that was part of a pipers, drums and regimental marching band when I was 13 yrs old.  We used to march in tons of parades in the Chicago area.

Now that I am on a low cholesterol diet, I am opening more cans of tuna for myself.  Of course, I have to give each cat a spoonful before I can fix my own.  Once I mix in a little pickle relish, minced onion and celery, they turn up their noses at my lunch.

How Hairy Jerry knows the sound of his dishes is interesting Felaine.  I like the phrase tippy-toes also.

I enjoy hearing about how everyones cats act.
