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.

New Rule: Win or Go Home (Real Time with Bill Maher)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 4. 5 Replies

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a mid-term election coming up in three days, and it's more than a little important.  With it we can take back at least one if not both houses of Congress from the Republicans and send a message to Donald Trump…Continue

Alexa for Evangelicals! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia Oct 9. 1 Reply

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 30. 6 Replies

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Joan, thanks for remembering my B-day.  I'm 77 and 1 week old today.

Thanks to the rest of you for your birthday wishes.

I've been doing so much on Quora, that I've just caught-up here today.

Randy, a weather/climate groups is a good idea. Go for it!

Comment by Patricia on August 12, 2018 at 1:38pm

The trees behind the houses in the second photo are in their yards, the forest is beyond that.

Comment by Patricia on August 12, 2018 at 1:36pm

Yes, Kathy, we were gone for 18 days. 

So far today its not raining, but the smoke is still bad. Last night's sprinkle didn't do much.

The forestry surrounding us behind the houses has disappeared.

We got a major downpour yesterday here too. It was most welcome!

Patricia,  didn't you have to evacuate last year because of fire??

Comment by Randall Smith on August 12, 2018 at 6:59am

Sounds like everyone is getting a break from the weather. That's good news.

I've considered adding a weather/climate group here at A/N. We all seem to enjoy talking about the weather.

Comment by Plinius on August 12, 2018 at 3:22am

Good! I hope it's a deluge!

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 12, 2018 at 2:57am

That is very good news, Patricia. 

Comment by Patricia on August 12, 2018 at 2:22am
