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

I ain't never seen people talk that way before other then me.  Is their a problem with that?

Also, it says bath instead of bathe.  I used to have a friend that always said she would "bath" the kids.  It was really hard to bite my tongue.

Comment by booklover on July 10, 2013 at 4:59pm

Who would think this is a good idea?!!!!

Comment by Loren Miller on July 10, 2013 at 11:40am

No idea, Chris. I just know that I love his work, from The Star Beast to Stranger in a Strange Land to Time Enough for Love and even works like Starship Troopers, which is a lot harder to take and process because of the philosophy being put forward.

You may like Robert Heinlein or you may hate him, but it's hard to be indifferent about his work, because he will make you THINK, he will make you evaluate what you think and why. For that reason and many others, he has earned the moniker: Dean of Science-Fiction.

Let's guess, Loren; a xtian in the committee?

Comment by booklover on July 10, 2013 at 10:29am

I'll give it a whirl Chris.  Thanks for the suggestion!

Comment by Loren Miller on July 10, 2013 at 9:54am

Said it before, will say it again: Job should have been Heinlein's fifth Hugo Award winner ... and I would like to know why it wasn't.

Comment by Plinius on July 10, 2013 at 9:40am

not just about him, Melinda. Heinlein's books are very enjoyable. I couldn't stop laughing when I read ´Job´.

Comment by booklover on July 10, 2013 at 9:35am

sk8eycat, that is SO awesome!  How neat!  I will have to read more about him. :)

Glad you liked the picture Ian!

I only met Isabel's sister once many moons ago, although we have exchanged the odd email now & then. I saw Isabel's kids grow up & the eldest 2 used to babysit mine, so they all know we were close friends. That's why I'm a little bent that at least one of her 4 kids couldn't have dropped me a note....especially the son she happens to be staying with. I sent messages to all 4 kids as well as her sister. Oh well, at least now I know she's here although I haven't heard anything more on what's up.
