Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: 10 hours ago

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.

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Richard Dawkins, Growing Up in the Universe

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 14. 2 Replies

Here is an oldie, the young Richard Dawkins teaching kids about the universe. I especially like the one demonstrating how the eye evolved. This should answer those who believe it was impossible to evolve an eye. Continue

TheraminTrees doesn't release videos very often these days,  but when he does, they are positive GEMS.  Most recent of his works is the following, wherein he dismantles some of the common rebuttals atheist get from believers when we assert our…Continue

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Feb 15. 4 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Tara - here's a link to my bird group - if you would like to post it there.

If not - that's OK.

I love the picture of the parrot Tara!

That would look great in my bird group.

Comment by Tara on September 3, 2012 at 11:54am

Very pretty, Patricia!  Love villages near bodies of water like that.

And for a bit of random nonsense:

Comment by Ian Mason on September 3, 2012 at 10:21am

That looks like a smashing place to live Patricia. I love places where there are opportunities for good, long walks in natural surroundings.

What a beautiful place. Patricia! Now that you're talking birds, I notice that the swallows are out of sight - gone south already?

Hey Melinda (Booklover) I've been on a birding trip to the coast! I am really enjoying it here. I posted some pics in my birding group. I have more pics to sort through and I will post more.

I love your city Patricia! Very beautiful view of the surrounding mountains.
Comment by Derek Bly on September 2, 2012 at 6:01pm

Patricia, beautiful place. I know you're in Williams Lake, but when the photo first popped into view, I thought for a second that it was Castlegar! It's similar in that you drive down into it and there are some great views from the highway. Love B.C.

For the past several weeks, I've been hearing the interesting sound of and watching the interesting formation changes of Geese.  They're heading Southeast, but I don't know where they're going.

There is a pond to the SE where they were coming from and going to this winter, near where I was ice-fishing in January.

That's funny booklover!

How's your labor day weekend going?
