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.

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

The walkers come in handy for a lot of reasons. I liked the one I got as it's very light & compact, which will allow me to take it on my scooter. This way I have something to walk around with when the scooter is too awkward to go around store aisles, etc. I have hip, knee, & foot issues, plus sudden onset vertigo when I need to sit down......like NOW! I can still walk, but it's getting more difficult, & distance is not an option. Still in the process of a hip/knee diagnosis outside of the arthritis I already have.

I have looked at the 3 wheel types, but when I saw the one in purple with a terrific sale price as well as free shipping, it was a no brainer.

Joan, keep posting about anything you want. AN would shrivel up very quickly if the only topic anyone was ever invited to discuss was atheism. We’re multidimensional people who are atheists, not atheist robots. I personally value discussing problems, as mature companionship. Honeymoon relationships, where conflict is suppressed rather than discussed, are boring. How else can we learn from one another?

My walker is blue and has three wheels, Patricia. Don’t need it around the house or to go grocery shopping, but like it for longer forays. It looks something like this stock picture.

Booklover, unfriending seemed reasonable to me.

Much appreciated Patricia! :)

If I can help between your computers Melinda & Joan, glad to. Some things just gotta be seen!

Comment by booklover on November 7, 2013 at 5:42pm

Glad you all enjoyed the Facebook post!  It isn't anybody I know, it was on one of the FB pages I "liked."

Patricia, thank you for re-posting that for Joan!  For some reason Joan's computer and mine aren't compatible! I don't know enough about computers to send it any other way.

So I took all of my sister's friends and/or family off my FB.  She and I don't agree on a lot of things, and if she wants to post back and forth with them fine, but I don't need my blood-pressure raised, and she got mad about her friend and I arguing.  So I don't know if she and I are in good-standing or not, but I'll just let it go until she acts like everything is fine again.  She's still playing our online games of Ruzzle and Words with Friends with me.  I did write a status on FB about how people can be religious or Republican, and I will be friends with them, but NOT if they use either to promote hate.  Hate against the LGBTQ community, etc.  I had 7 people agree with me, and I am only friends with fewer than 25 people, and some haven't gotten online yet today, so that's pretty good.

Yay, tomorrow is Friday!

Patricia, thanks for reposting Mindy's comment. It is better than I even dreamed! 

Comment by Patricia on November 7, 2013 at 4:35pm

Trying Melinda's post again Joan.........

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 7, 2013 at 3:31pm
Mindy, for some reason, I did not get your "Here's a great reply from someone on Facebook. :)"
I am so curious, I have to go get one of those cupcakes Carl suggested.
