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

Just want to report that my little Texas town is about to get 4 atheist billboards, just in time for the big Alabama game. They will go up tomorrow if there are no more hitches.

Start up the fan.

That neighbor, nice as he is, has a stubborn streak a mile wide. He has dead trees in his back yard that he absolutely will not cut down. They've been like that for years, & obviously they aren't going to put out new sprouts or whatever. At least they are a lot shorter & pose no threat other than looking awful.

I'm with you, Patricia.  I don't like seeing trees and other greenery cut down unnecessarily, but if the trees are brittle and breaking their branches under normal seasonal winds, that means they are in the process of dying.  They should be cut down completely for the safety of your home.   

Comment by Patricia on September 5, 2013 at 5:29pm

I don't like to see trees cut willy-nilly unless they pose a safety problem. The culprit trees on the neighbor's property line are very brittle, & break branches constantly with all the seasonal winds here, which are rather often. His house never gets hit....ours does.

The tree company cut about 20'-30' from the tops so they are not puny little things & we hate them. Now they look even worse & you can see how close they are to our house & front window in the second photo......

YIKES!!! Panic attacks....great stuff......NOT!!!

I see some equipment outside today but nobody is around. My husband wants to mow, but with all the wood debris covering almost the whole front yard, he can't.

Have a safe & fun trip Ian!

Comment by Grinning Cat on September 5, 2013 at 1:26pm

Patricia, that sounds like an ordeal... I hope you and your husband won't have to clean up the rest of the mess the neighbors' tree company dropped in your yard.

Ian, have a wonderful time!

Oh dear, what a day, Patricia. A good idea to enjoy some Chinese food as a pleasant end to the horrors.

I will, within the hour, be taking myself away from all this and travelling to the Med - second time this year - to immerse myself in nature, history, sunshine and food. Will not be taking a PC with me so "see" you when I get back. Be good :-D
