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.

Goodwill to Few Men (Betty Bowers)

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

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

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 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

Couple of bugs in A|N I've observed this AM:

  • Clicking on a link to a comment will take you to the post that contains the comment, but not directly to the comment itself.
  • Clicking on "Reply" to a comment causes the browser to home to top of page, rather than opening a Reply window.

I've checked this with both IE and Firefox and reported it.  Seems as though something is broken in NING.  You may want to be aware of that.

A true, but a bare fragment of all the abuses and crimes, etc. we have in America. Sad state of affairs. The Ray Rice case is a good example.

Speaking of shitty shows, I was sorely disappointed in the PBS "special" on honoring Tina Fey with the Mark Twain humor award. Except for Steve Martin, the guests were pathetically unfunny.

On the other hand, the PBS shows on wildlife, especially about the orangutans (two: sign language and sex) last Wed., were exceptionally good.

Hey Joan, enjoy the new addition to your family! 

Ian, that comic is so true to life.  Does Denmark have the same type of shitty reality shows we have here?

Congratulations on the new family member, Joan.

Home of close family friends, July 24, 2014. The ceiling came down around them, scared them to "death". metaphorically speaking.

Brooklyn Grace Staab was born yesterday about noon. Mother and baby doing fine. They might come today if Laurie's blood pressure and blood sugar are remaining normal.

Felaine, that Weird Al video and song is one of his best.  I haven't heard from him in a long time.  I didn't know he was still musically active! 

(Just in case anyone here is not familiar with the original song, here is the video.)

Mindy, you inspired me to post this, from one of my favorite movies as a kid.....
