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.

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

John Oliver's excellent takedown of televangelists.

I only found I liked peanut butter with pineapple 2 days ago.  

I like peanut butter on bread with something sweet slathered on as well.  Two days ago, I wanted to eat some peanut butter, but had no sweet stuff to go with it.  I did have some crushed canned pineapple, so I tried that.  Tasted good.

 Had no bread either, but will probably taste good with bread also.

Peanut butter with pineapple?

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 29, 2017 at 9:20am

I enjoyed Patricia's comments also.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 29, 2017 at 9:19am

I agree with Bertold and Randy.  Love pizza, but pineapple on pizza is nasty!

I don't eat much pineapple.  When I do, I eat it with peanut butter or cottage cheese.

Comment by Loren Miller on August 29, 2017 at 7:35am

Hey, Joan!  It's great to hear that Patricia is okay.  Please wish her my best ... and tell her to Get Her Butt BACK HERE!!!

Comment by Randall Smith on August 29, 2017 at 7:13am

I'm with Bertold (and Carl). No pineapple will ever ruin my pizza again!

Joan, have you tried to talk Patricia into rejoining A/N? I always loved her comments.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 28, 2017 at 11:11pm

Carl, I know, and I am ashamed of myself to let such a great friend down, however, I really like Hawaiin Pizzas. 

Oh! Boy! your pizzas sound delicious: 

* peanut sauce, sausage, and onions! 

spicy buffalo chicken pizza!

I'll have to get my granddaughter over here and try these combinations. She is one dandy pizza maker and I have never heard her speak of these concoctions. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 28, 2017 at 10:45pm

Joan, you just ruined Bertold's day. ;)

I've never had pineapple on pizza but I've had grilled pineapple and liked it.  So I think having it baked on pizza with the accompaniments you have in your recipe would be quite fine with me.

I don't normally stray away from "traditional" pizza toppings but I confess to loving pizza with peanut sauce (instead of tomato), sausage, and onions.  My brother made this at his house.

I also surprisingly liked spicy buffalo chicken pizza.

Here is my favorite Hawaiian pizza, as opposed to my Italian pizza, or my Asian pizza, or my Greek pizza.

  3. 6oz shredded mozzarella cheese 
  4. 1/2 cup cooked ham, chopped
