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.

Joseph, Here's Ron Reagan, Jr.'s speech when he accepted his "Emperor Has No Clothes" award at the 2009 FFRF convention in Seattle:

I think Ronald Reagan Sr. (AND Richard Nixon) would be considered much too liberal for today's GOP.  And Eisenhower would have been tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail for his prophetic warning about the "military-industrial complex."

Joan, that's a post with a very sharp point. Good one.

The other day, I was checking out the Evil Bible site http://www.evilbible.com/  and found out that Ron Reagan Jr. is an Atheist!!  He was asked when he quit going to church.  "At age 12, I told my father that I am no longer going to church, because I am an Atheist!!!!!  I can only imagine what the look on his father had.  Too bad Ron didn't have a camera!  " Hey dad, I am an Atheist, SAY CHEESE!!!!!!

Ian - what a wonderful vacation picture. The weather looks beautiful.

So glad you had a great time and got back safely.

Glad you're back Ian!  I hope you had a great time. :)  It's a beautiful Saturday morning here in Northern Illinois.  My son is down the street doggy-sitting a 14-year old Yellow Lab (who is mostly white now!). He spent the night there because he didn't want Ozzy the dog to be  alone all night. :)  My son would be perfectly content to just live with a house full of dogs and cats and  an XBox. lol.

Welcome back, Ian.  Looking forward to hearing and seeing more from your trip.
