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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Feb 15. 4 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Seth Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Feb 6. 20 Replies

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

Seth Andrews' New Book, "Sacred Cows" (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia Feb 6. 7 Replies

For the last few podcasts, Seth Andrews has been alluding to a new literary effort he's been working on.  Well, the cat is out of the bag ... or perhaps I should say, the cow is out of the barn!  Seth's new opus is entitled: Sacred Cows: a…Continue

Living in the Answers

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Patricia Jan 18. 13 Replies

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

Good news Randy.

Comment by Randall Smith on August 9, 2014 at 7:49am

Just to say it's been 8 days since I picked up my new dog, Dot. She seems to have adjusted to "country" life fine. At least she hasn't run away since I've unfenced her. I think she's become attached to me now. So far, so good.

Mindy, no, that does not sound cruel.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 9, 2014 at 7:41am

Patricia, I like your new avatar.  Do you have a large one I could save?

Makes me miss my cat.

Sitting on the bridge of my ship with a watch partner that just oozes Jesus. I feel like he's eating my brain.

Mindy, I once adopted 2 kittens from the same litter....one died at about age 2 from Feline Leukemia (and so did all the other kittens from that litter...as did their feral mother), and I was terrified that Lyle (her brother) would develop it, too.  But he never did...and they ate and drank out of the same dishes, and usually slept curled up together, too.  Lyle lived to be 17.....

What Joan said! I too hope Lillian has an easy last few hours, and that your mom will be "ok" in the weeks and months ahead.

I've shared this before:

Sorry to learn of Lillian's Feline Leukemia. What were the symptoms? Hope she has an easy last few hours. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 8, 2014 at 9:26pm

I remember now, Mindy.  Lillian was partial to your daughter and gave you the cold shoulder, but Mom ended up getting the cat.
