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

Thanks Spud. I have some problems at both ends, and have good RX to quell the discomfort. I feel great, Was a bit weepy this morning and so dripped a little, but it went away as soon as I started reading comments on Atheist Nexus. I feel strong.

Tom, I'm reading. I want to know what they pay in taxes. Do you have figures?

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on May 25, 2013 at 2:04am

If you want to see some Democratic dogma, continue reading.

Where do corporations get the money to pay taxes on income?

Do they reduce the interest they pay to stock owners?

Do they raise the prices their customers pay?

Both of the above?

Somewhere else?

Do you want taxpayers to know what they pay in taxes?

Patricia, I can't wait to see your remodel. What an exciting thing to have happening. We will celebrate with you in a virtual house warming.

This is the kind of Jaunting Cart I rode for two days in Killarney, Ireland, with an old Irish gentleman. I visited schools, hospitals, day care centers, old folks homes, and interviewed some of his relatives who were peasant people. Even though we did some sightseeing, I was not interested in the English estates or castles. I wanted to see workers' cottages, farms, and we ate in non-tourist Irish pubs. It was quite an experience. He was an Irish loyalist, through and through and so a perfect guide for my interests. He told me of the Irish famine and how his ancestors survived. A horrid story of greed, tyranny, and exploitation of the Irish. The famine was a political famine. There was plenty of food available, and the British owned the soil. Any poaching resulted in hanging.

Ian,

We're having white vinyl siding with charcoal faux shutters. The front door is decorator glass with charcoal caming, (narrow metal rods within the glass), & matching sidelights. Door handle is brushed nickel in color. Will be sending photos when finished in a week or so.

Very good words, Joan. There are too many petty dictators in the world and so many people that need a helping hand to escape from them.

Patricia, I hope your house is soon fully dressed in its new wardrobe. What colour are houses wearing this Spring?
