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.

The first snow of the season is always beautiful.  Nice photos, Patricia.  Looking forward to seeing your now infamous fireplace!!

Comment by Patricia on December 14, 2012 at 5:40pm

Supposedly the guy with the proper fireplace screen is on his way so hopefully can do my 'after' photos in a few.......

And all the time these brain-washed waste on the worship crap is just beyond my comprehension given all the scientific strides made over the last few centuries. If it wasn't for science, a whole lot of us would be needlessly dead & it has nothing to do with any damn praying either!!!

On a lighter note.......we got our first snowfall yesterday....beautiful........front yarrd

and back yard

Happee Winter Solstice! Luv, Warrl

If you don't know who Warrll is, and you like fantasy fiction, you are in for a real treat!  Start with Mercedes Lackey's "The Oathbound," and keep on reading.

That is my gift to everyone.

Things like this have long proved to me that, as Anne Nicol Gaylor has said, "Nothing fails like prayer."  If there really were any gods, they are worthless selfish bastards.

George Carlin was right, the only thing worth worshipping (if people just have to worship something) is Sol...the Sun...the source of life.  And you can SEE it.  And it doesn't ask for money or bloody sacrifices...it just IS.

Patricia! Yes! Exactly!

"Show yourself oh mighty one and put an end to all the natural disasters that kill, maim, destroy life and end all the greed and attitudes of entitlement that sucks resources out of workers into the coffers of the wealthy."

I agree too Patricia.  Won't happen, but it would be WAY too little, WAY too late.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 14, 2012 at 4:12pm

I very much agree Patricia.

Comment by Patricia on December 14, 2012 at 3:04pm

I've always said that if a real person materialized in the sky, visible to everyone as the sun & moon are, & began instantly zapping out murder, kidnap, rape, torture, cruelty, birth defects, brain damage, starvation, undrinkable water, etc., etc., then I just might think there's something to this loving gawd thing. I just don't know if it would be worth worship though, as it should have been done this way all the way along, which would be closer to the right thing to do.....especially for little kids who have no choice in matters.
