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

Well timed, Flying Atheist, I'm cooking the evening meal (beans and veggieburger). Thanks and have a nice day to all of you!

Good Day and Happy Monday to you all.  I've been working like a dog (sorry, not like a cat) and finally have a nice stretch of days off.  

Melinda, have a GREAT trip to The Keys.  There are some wonderful sunsets there.  I know you'll have a very nice and relaxing time with your family.  You all sound like so much fun when you get together.  (How's that for good English?)  

Nice to see you back Felaine.  You're missed tremendously when you're away on your little jaunts.  What a time to be away!  So much happening in the news.  BTW, this past weekend I was just in your neck of the woods.  The hotel I was staying at by LAX was hosting a Doctor Who convention.  Major geeks, nerds and costumes all over the hotel.  What fun!  I'm not a Doctor Who fan, but I somehow felt that I fit in with that crowd.  LOL

Joan, thanks for the posting the NASA photo.  I'm continually amazed at how beautiful and awe-inspiring the depths of space can be.  It's such a paradox.....so beautiful, yet so hostile.

I wish all of you a great day.  And to all our European and international friends.....a great evening.

Hi Felaine!  Happy you are back here!  We will all be driving (renting 2 cars) from Miami to Key West.   I will be on the lookout for those deer!  Can't wait to visit Hemmingway's House and see all those cats with the extra toes that are the decensdants (sp?) of his cats.  Steph, I am going to try and take some good bird pics for your group!!

Good stuff on here everyone!  I hope you all have a good week!~Melinda

I really missed you all...there was so much going on in the gnus, and I needed many kindred "spirits" to discuss it all with!  ("with whom to discuss it all"?)

Anybody else planning to watch "Hubris" on MSNBC Monday evening?  It's on at 9PM ET, 6PM PST....Check their web site for your time zone.

Ian!  I absodamnlutely LOVE ragtime!  Actually, I love watching a good pianist's hands playing any style music....very secksy!  (I just sent that link to a friend, who is an amazing pianist, as a belated Valentine.) Heh!

Fangkew.

Speaking of cats on keyboards, yes, it's a trend, which I'll gladly add to. Here's an intent mewsician...

Good night, everyone!

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 17, 2013 at 11:57pm

Steph, cat on keyboard looks as I feel. Cat for pope; he could not do any worse. 

Grinning Cat, cat on a keyboard; am I seeing a trend here? Ah Ha! I was right, there is a trend of cats on keyboards. 

Tony Carroll, "Truth" sign is what we need right now! and a lion with courage. Oh! How we need courageous leaders. 

sk8eycat, welcome back; looking forward to some good conversations. 

Well, dear friends, that's all for today. Nice to end the day with your fun and funny contributions.
