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 Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Jan 22. 13 Replies

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

Over 50 messages while I slept and worked! But I'll still join in the group hug for the Patricia's anniversary, Joan's chemo, Felaine's sore head and cat, .... just for all of you.

Today was the last day of my course; flowers, kisses and presents for the teacher! They always make me happy!

Steph, this is a work of art. Di you do it? Very clever. All the elements are there, especially the head on the head! Try to duplicate that!

I would never have guessed, Steph.

Flying Atheist that is so funny. I love it.

Patricia I love those flowers. So beautiful.

Patricia, I think if something bad had occurred you definitely would have had some news.  Keep in mind that moving is very stressful, especially from one continent to another, and that daily routines are disrupted.  When you don't have regular access to internet or your own phone it's hard to keep in touch.  I say give them a bit more time to settle in.  Perhaps phone lines and internet connections are still in the process of being hooked up.

Oh!  Have you heard back from the daughter yet?  If she hasn't heard from her I would think informing the police would be a good idea!  I hope your friend is okay!

Comment by booklover on July 1, 2013 at 4:11pm

Happy Anniversary Patricia, and awesome Group Hug picture Carl! I don't know what advice to give you about your friend Patricia!  I don't think being concerned is over-stepping!  Lovely picture of the Lilacs!  They are my favorite. :)

Comment by Ian Mason on July 1, 2013 at 3:39pm

Happy anniversary Patricia.

Smashing pic, Carl. Yes, a big hug to Felaine.

Joan, I hope the after/side effects of the chemo are  tolerable and that you can enjoy the view from your window.
