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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

I discovered a brilliant new way to avoid  having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two…Continue

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

Steph. That is hilarious!  Lucifer's Testicles!  Is the Easter Basket his scrotum? When you bite off the chocolate bunny's ear, is that the rest of the package?  This is too damned funny!

My sister has 3 small children and she is a fundamentalist Xtian and doesn't like the secularizing of Easter. She probably has that book .. the one pictured below.

Xtians don't like the secularizing of Easter. I have come across their forums discussing why easter eggs and the easter bunny are bad for their children.

Sorry to leave that teaser and just seem to run off. I am working on the RBB blog, and trying to make it as information dense as my Reason Rally blog. I'm also catching up (while memories are fresh) on all the networking contacts I made yesterday (including a US Navy Commander!!!). 

As well, I'm updating and researching my John Kieffer blog and preparing another blog addressing the overall problem (it's huge) in Polk County Florida.

Please stay tuned and address comments/questions on my blog pages, which are more appropriate for anything "activism" than this group, …which is more a general topics space. I really don't want to hijack Ruth's comments section. That said, thanks to all for your concerns and interests in my own efforts in the more activist facets of atheist community building.

Richard, please keep us posted on John and his daughter's condition. Even if they are perfectly alright, now is not the time to lose a vehicle. I hear he has a ton of legal fees from the Florida incident.

sk8eycat, I've seen many unfortunate attempts where they have tried, but when you try to make comedy that is harmless, takes no risk and can in no way be offensive to anyone, the result is bland and rather lame. That's when you hear the polite chuckles from the pew.

Comment by Steph S. on April 1, 2012 at 2:31am
Cool deal Richard! Can't wait to see your report and pictures!
Comment by sk8eycat on April 1, 2012 at 1:19am

@Richard: How was the music???!  Was it all rock, or did Dan Barker play some cool jazz?

Any comedy?

One thing I've noticed for decades is that most xians and muslims don't dig humor of any kind...whether it's aimed at them or not. I wonder if it's indoctrinated or genetic.

My blog is on Atheist Nexus, here's my Reason Rally blog post from last week.

I have almost 300 images to sort through, a lot of thoughts to put into words and by next week I'll have a few gigs of video to sort through for highlights. And, I'm exhausted, so the Rock Beyond Belief blog post will be up tomorrow, earliest.

I was a complete celeb-pic junkie at this one, …there's a lot more to come… Stay tuned. Also, I got to speak with American Atheists President, Dave Silverman …the "official" attendance count at the Reason Rally was over 30,000.

The only bad news from todays event was that John Kieffer and his daughter were in a serious car wreck on their way to the event, more details (and more info to come) on my John Kieffer blog post.
