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.

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

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

Patricia, avoiding the drunks and hookers is probably one of the reasons you're able to celebrate 46 years together.  Congratulations!!

Agreed, James. Empty vessels make the most noise.

Indeed, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Patricia. Have a great day and spoil yourselves.

Today is my 46th anniversary.

Ian, Ian, don't get me started on another pet peeve.  The more loudly they proclaim their Christeranity the more likely they don't know what it means or suspect they might not really believe it at all.  Like little girls, beliefs are supposed to be seen, not heard, by which I mean actions speak louder than words.

Pretty picture Steph!  We saw good fireworks @ the trap-shooting (clay discs, not animals!) club that my husband belongs to.  We had a nice time and we were all together!  I love that my almost 18 year-old and my 20 year old like to be with us! :)  Have a wonderful 4th!
