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

Did you feel it happen ? The Earth in relation to the sun makes its yearly move and start making each day a little bit longer. 

The First Day Of Winter and Why The Shortest Day Of The Year Doesn'...

You are smart to stay far away from FB Loren!  I was just kidding anyway! ;)

You're right Joan!

Carl, I DID put that "political views" post up on FB.  Nobody "liked" it. LOL.  Happy Winter Solstice to you too my friend, and those are beautiful pictures. :)

Felaine, you are right that we don't have to respect what they believe.  I don't respect stupid.

We had to cancel our family get-together today since the weather from here to Green Bay, where my sister lives, is going to get bad, and they didn't want to get caught driving in it. :(  Oh well!

Hope you all have a good weekend!~ Mindy

"What did he/she/it do on the eighth day?"

Probably went out for Chinese ... or maybe Thai?

Thanks FA, beautiful pictures!

Loren, another conversation stopper: "If you really believe that a supernatural being made the entire universe (including this little mudball) in six days, and rested on the seventh day, what did she/he/it do on the eighth day?"  *;) winking

Happy Solstice to all of you!

Many, many years ago I heard somebody say on a PBS news/talk show that he didn't agree with somebody else's belief in mythical miracles, but he had to respect the other person for having beliefs at all. And I found myself wanting to yell, "WHY?!?"

Later I thought out my own "motto:"

"I have to respect your constitutional right to believe whatever silly thing makes you feel special, but I do NOT have to respect what you believe. And I don't."  (Can't)

Before my sister became involved with the JeHoover's Witlesses, they used to come to the door and joyfully shout, "Millions now living will never die!"  I would either say, "That's obscene (or absurd)," or I would just laugh at them, and quietly shut the door before they could stop gasping in horror.  (They dropped that particular sales pitch decades ago; I guess it didn't drag in enough suckers.)

Doorbell ringers of all stripes are as offensive to me as telemarketers and spammers...it's a wonder that they actually ever contact anybody stupid enough to buy whatever they are selling. 

I occasionally scan my spam folder, and there seem to be a lot of Christian dating web sites looking for customers.  How weird. If there are so many True Believers in this country, you'd think they wouldn't have any trouble bumping into each other. Literally.
