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.

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

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 1. 9 Replies

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

OK, I think I got it.  I was looking for similar sounding English words, but it's a phrase supposedly in the Uganda language, used in a song in the play "The Book of Mormon".

Thanks Melinda and Ian - it works well to reward myself for duty, I've slept off my headache and my roof garden plants look happy!

Iggy Pope would at least be more entertaining :-)

Well done Chris. Motivation with a reward is a good way to get duty done.

HAHA - so funny

Oh booklover the Facebook cat and the liquid cat are just so good. Love them. So many great pics for my collection. I love that weekend cat Ruth and Napoleon Iggy pope is funny. Maybe the new pope will look something like that. hehe

Yes, it is best just to change the subject when religion is brought up - if you want to remain friends. I can see the conversation getting heated when discussing religion with a theist.

Chris, doesn't it feel so good to get something accomplished that you weren't looking forward to doing? Now you get to do something that sounds great!

Ruth, I thought that sign about lowering abortion rates put it aptly! I hope you have a good weekend too!

It was fun out with my friend last night, but she did say a few religious things.  I just changed the subject.  I can't take much of that!  There was a terrible accident a few blocks from my house about a week ago.  3 teens that were breaking into cars in the catholic church parking-lot were running from police.  They crashed head-first into a neo-natal nurses SUV and her car wrapped around a light-pole.  She died.  They lived.  My friend said she told her daughter to say a prayer.  So I said why would a loving 'god' let her die, and them live.  Of course she said she didn't know, but  'god' would forgive them if they were really sorry. AAaaarrrrggggghhhhh!

Yes, time flies and for me it's a good time now! I worked through a nasty packet of administration and it even looks quite acceptable! I haven't got a good way with numbers and get a horrible headache on top but I finished it! Yeahh! And now I can go and plant the first seedlings in my roof vegetable garden! I was looking forward to that!
