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.

I've been into genealogy for a long time. It's fun, especially with internet help, but increasingly frustrating. You see, I've hit "brick walls". And being a Smith doesn't make research any easier.Wouldn't you think I could find the death date and…Continue

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Pretty flowers Chris!  So cool the name means unbeliever!  The official Atheist flower! :) Someone tried to pull your cats whiskers?!  What a jerk!

Comment by Plinius on March 26, 2013 at 8:23am

I love the cat cafe, Flying Atheist, but I wouldn't trust all the visitors, not after an acquaintance tried to pull MauMau's whiskers behind my back. Never seen that man again and well rid!

You're going to enjoy Oliver Sacks, Flying!

And it's still too cold here, I wish the wind would turn from NE to SW! The vegetables I sowed are waiting on the window sill:"Can't we go to the garden yet?" but they would freeze. 

And it occurred to me that there is an atheist flower: clivia or kaffir lily - kaffir means unbeliever. Mine flowers like mad.

Enjoy your reading, TFA. I've "stolen" your list with cut and paste and will keep an eye out for them next time I'm in England. Alrady hear a lot of good things about the Oliver Sachs.

We will have to see if Grumpy Cat can stand the test if time like Morris did! Where is Ruth?
Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 25, 2013 at 10:08pm

I think Grumpy Cat has overtaken Morris the Cat in popularity.  What do you think?

Anderson Cooper loves Grumpy Cat!!!

I hope to attend some if my schedule allows it. I am lucky to live in Austin.

Hi, Steph.  Are you attending any of the American Atheist events in Austin this weekend?  You're lucky to have their conference in you city.

Oh cool - Melinda I love Star Trek and I love the Vulcan death grip picture! Awesome!
Comment by Steph S. on March 25, 2013 at 6:47pm
Wow - snow Melinda and in spring time too. It's chilly here - got to freezing temperatures last night - but no snow.
I love that dog and cat photo Melinda! Flying Atheist thanks for the music. I can't wait until it warms up and I can go and do things outside. I love to hike and be in nature. So how is everyone?
