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.

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Not much sleep the last two nights; at 2AM the cats were all excited, dashing around the house, jumping from window to window.  When they finally slowed down a little, I heard ...."Hoo-hoo-hoooo.  Hoo-hoo-hooo."  The great horned owls are back.   

I guess that means it's really autumn. At last.

And I have two typing jobs to finish by tonight.  Going back to bed for a nap first.

BRB NOT!

Love waking-up to all the cat pics.  Good morning everyone!  Drinking my coffee, then it's grocery shopping day for me, when my son returns home from college with the car. (We are sharing one at the moment.)

LOLcats wot talks proper. How nice.

Wow, sk8eycat, what a horribly managed site. It gives Atheists a bad rep to have such socially incompetent site administrators. Atheist Nexus is a safe haven from that crap.

Thanks for the cute cats, Steph. Take care, all!
