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.

Science, Atheism & the Joyful Life -- by Sean Faircloth, Richard Dawkins Foundation

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 9. 6 Replies

Some speeches by atheists are factual and practical, dealing with the nuts and bolts of reality.  Some are diatribes against the superstitions we seek to overcome, pointing out the man behind the curtain and the fallacies and snake oil he tries to…Continue

Bedtime Bible Stories (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 8. 0 Replies

Uh, oh!  America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, is at it again, THIS time with bedtime stories!  Somehow with her retelling of some of the classics, I'm dubious that her versions would go over with the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson,…Continue

These scenes fill me with awe, even as I understand the implication of the events. Interesting to see the gas guzzler hummer photo below. Do we not realize what we are doing to ourselves?

Amazing, huge, dangerous......all that.

This isn't my video, since we didn't have such a camera then, but this is how we saw calving from the ships when we did our Alaskan cruises......amazingly loud!

Ian, that is right. Censorship is wrong.

Comment by booklover on February 17, 2014 at 7:45am

Wow, everybody has been putting great stuff up here!  Some of those images were horribly disturbing Napoleon, but so important that they were shown to the world.  I liked the woman sticking the flower into the soldier's bayonet.

Loren, that picture of the guy on the ledge makes me nervous! lol

Funny joke Patricia!

Good quote Ian.

Hope everyone has a good week.  I am going to have our taxes done this a.m., then this afternoon we go see the Orthopedic Specialist about the cyst in/on my son's knee.  Of course it makes me nervous. :(

Thanks for those 29 images, Napoleon!

Comment by Ian Mason on February 17, 2014 at 1:48am

Those 29 news images are stunning, Napoleon.

Here's something I found on FB
