Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: Feb 22

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.

Information on how, why, and who is more susceptible to this virus. 
"This virus is worse than the Spanish flu of l918."

And fittingly, the online fantasy serial "Mother of Learning" was updated today after a hiatus of months. (I hope everything's OK in the author's life!) Think Harry Potter meets Groundhog Day: a teenage student mage finds himself in a month-long time loop, and learns that it's up to him and his friends to save the world...

Thanks Randall! Are you doing well too?

Comment by Randall Smith on February 2, 2020 at 7:27am

Happy Candlemas Day (Feb. 2). And, as my grandmother would say, "Half the wood and half the hay", winter being half over. Phooey on the groundhog hogwash.

Hope everybody is doing well. I miss Carl, Daniel, and others here at A/N.

Thanks for sharing your photo, Ian, you deserve great happiness. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 25, 2020 at 4:03pm

Damn, Randall, 13 spots. I've had plenty of moles removed with liquid nitrogen. Never got bruises, and scabs were only temporary. Your freezing was probably deeper than mine. Thanks for the picture.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 25, 2020 at 3:08pm

Randall, probably liquid nitrogen.  That's all I've ever seen used.

It kills the cells by freezing them.

Good photo.

Comment by Plinius on January 25, 2020 at 7:53am

Start smiling, Ian! All the best with your skin, Randall! And a great weekend to all!

Comment by Randall Smith on January 25, 2020 at 7:10am

No words necessary, Ian!

If my picture was taken now, I'd be embarrassed. Two days ago, I had 13 possible skin cancer spots hit with the spray gun. I forget what's in it, but it produces bruises and scabs. Heck, I didn't even know I had any skin problems other than one area at my temple. Too much sun and not enough protection over the years.
