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.

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

Daniel, I don't blame you, especially when they require you to be home and then they're the no show.  Unbelievable!  

I'm not the cussing tirade sort of guy but I sure as shit was the morning a demolition contractor knocked a brick wall down onto my car from the garage they were tearing down next door.  I lashed out with both barrels.  He was the same contractor who remodeled my building, so I already had lots of (bad) history with him.  A very angry, pent-up genie was unleashed from me that morning.  This was before YouTube, but my rant certainly would have gone viral.

Year 2016 seems to have had an overabundant amount of bad and tragic news.  Now, more than ever, it seems we need to take a deep breath and enjoy some of the simple and wonderful pleasures that are often overlooked.

Here's an article with lots of photos of what has become a yearly tradition at the Chicago Botanic Garden:  miniature trains running alongside landmark/iconic Chicago buildings made from all natural materials.

No problems here with AN freezing up.

Greetings of the Solstice Season one and all!

Randy, I haven't had any problems with A|N freezing up.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 21, 2016 at 9:47am

Happy solstice all. The real reason for the season as they say. The return of the light = cause to celebrate.

Comment by Plinius on December 21, 2016 at 8:49am

Happy Solstice! The sun and the sky are invisible here, thick grey clouds obscure everything, but I've finished my lessons for this year and I've got a holiday!

Comment by Randall Smith on December 21, 2016 at 8:40am

Happy Winter Solstice everyone! Like a yoyo at the bottom of its drop, it'll take awhile before the sun begins to move higher in the sky. But, rest assured, it will. Patience is required.

On an unrelated note, is anybody else having trouble with A/N "freezing up"? I frequently have to close out the site and return later. Maybe it's my dinosaur of a computer.

That's a swingin' version, Carl. Great!

Comment by Ian Mason on December 20, 2016 at 10:58am

It's the solstice tomorrow so it must be Hogswatch Eve. May the Hogfather (or your preffered anthropomorphic personification) bring you and yours lots of goodies in the coming season.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 20, 2016 at 10:36am

Carl, I like that rendition of Happy Birthday.  Thanks.
