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.

Evangelicals Unmasked (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat May 26. 4 Replies

After roughly two months of "shelter-in-place," it would seem that evangelical Christians are champing at the bit to get back to their money-making-machines churches, because empty pews mean empty collection plates, which means no moolah in pastors'…Continue

Stay at home order

Not only should the Federal government issue the "Stay at home" order, but all medications should be negotiated through the nation and health care should be provided to all inhabitants, citizens or not. From where will the funding come? From those…Continue

Spud, that black booted dog is Michelle's and he is super hyperactive, never stops running. He knocks me down all the time and sometimes I have to crawl opn my hands and knees to get to a chair or porch so that I can get up. Zeek is terrible for Larry because he is crippled from childhood polio, leaving him with one leg 2" shorter than the other. 
We constantly work with Zeek to get him to stop bowling us over, but Zeek is Zeek. He should not be on this place. However, even Larry loves that damned dog, as do I.

Not me, Randall. We had some issues with insurance companies, a court case about an allowance - we've worked like mad to get things right.

Comment by Randall Smith on August 23, 2019 at 7:00am

I agree, Tom. Perhaps members have the summer time lethargy. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on August 22, 2019 at 2:29pm

I've been guilty of posting less, Tom. But no solutions here for reinvigorating AN.

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on August 22, 2019 at 11:36am

Ok, who among us will join an effort to restore AN’s vigor? How?

Perhaps by going back into a discussion’s history and adding posts to issues relevant to our present times? Perhaps another way?

Comment by Plinius on August 22, 2019 at 8:22am

I don't feel up to it, Ian, but on the other hand it's not sensible to leave the job for people that WANT power. Organising is best done by people that don't want power.

Comment by Ian Mason on August 22, 2019 at 8:01am

That's funny, GC.

Good picture, Joan. At first glance I thought is was a safety precaution for if you felt out of the chair. As it is, you fell asleep.

Chris, would we really want the worry of putting everything right?

Comment by Randall Smith on August 22, 2019 at 7:10am

Great picture of you Joan! I'll share one of mine showing Hutterite mother and daughter. And yes, I've been to and seen most of those places you asked about. It's your neck of the woods I haven't explored.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 22, 2019 at 6:53am

Joan, that dog looks like it's got black boots on.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 22, 2019 at 6:52am

Love that satire, GC.
