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)

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

Patricia, so sorry about the triple crown.  However, he really has a bright future ahead of him at stud.  Hope he sires many, many triple crown candidates.  Also, glad to know they are taking good care of him.

That's exactly what Judy Hayes' column/blog is about this month...the twits who say "I'm so blessed" over everyday stuff like being okayed for a car loan, while something like 6,000 children under the age of 5 die every day from starvation.

Maybe Mendel and Malthus are/were gods.

Yeah, but the jockey & horse are from my home Canadian province. It would have been terrific to win that.

Afriend of mine, who ought to know better, sent me this saccharine thing (watch the video, if you can do it without barfing):

Power in Numbers
> They say mathematics is the language God used to create the universe. 

> The equations here are astounding! 


So I replied with this:

PS: That is NOT "mathematics," it's just arithmetic.  BFD.

Patricia, I agree.  But if we could not have a triple crown, then let Phyllis Wyeth's horse Union Rags win just as he did in her dream.

Comment by Patricia on June 9, 2012 at 8:11pm close to the Triple Crown.....damn near put us on the map.

You always put up the best pics and say the nicest things Steph!  I hope you have a terrific weekend! :)  It is supposed to be in the 90's here, and we are going to an outside graduation party today @ 4 p.m. Ugh! lol~ Melinda
