Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Long story short, it's those near misses, the almost-but-not-quite, close but no cheroot moments, or, would you believe ... Near Death Experiences!  So what's the big deal?  Betty Bowers, America's BEST Christian and self-proclaimed expert on such…Continue

degrading love — part one (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Nov 22. 11 Replies

Love is by many considered among the highest of positive emotions.  Yet when love of the type offered by deities is examined, something seems to go seriously wrong.  The love of Yahweh seems less a gift than a demand, not so much beneficence as a…Continue

It worked, now to the rest of my A/N friends, Good afternoon. I will take advantage of the successful last tries and say how glad I am to have you to participate with trying to get oil companies to explore and develop alternative energy sources. 

I successfully sent an invitation to A/N members from A to L to join the group, Renewable Energy Sources

I am unable to send invitations to A/N members because I have been unsuccessful in figuring out how to send to A/N friends. I will keep trying. 

My old brain just can't keep up with this new-fangled technology and I send hugs to all those who are smart and able. How I envy you your brightness!

Attempt #2
Hi, Spud, it seems our little group has a reason to grow now that some fossil fuel corporations look to doing research on alternative energy sources. There exist great opportunities for those who create, invent, develop alternative energy. 

We live in an incredibly exciting time of human development. I jus wish I could remember how to invite A/N members to this site. I tried and tried, finally got through A - L and then sent that request off. I tried to duplicate sending the rest and I am still struggling with how to invite A/N members. 

I'm too old for this kind of brain twisting. 

How are you doing!

Ian, you mentioned practicing scales on your bass guitar; couldn't resist this:

Kathy, have you tried Lore's recommendation? Go to Loren's page

Ning, Error 500s, and Whether to Migrate

page 2 about 1 hour ago. I also made a check list to follow for his instructions. 

Let me know if you can't find it.

Here we go again. One comment will post the next one won't.

We start seeing those begin to come in after thanksgiving in Canada, which is early October. It is so over-done, & boring, to say the least.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 1, 2016 at 3:21pm

Please pardon this little rant.

Last night, October 31 (Halloween), I walked over to the Walgreens pharmacy to pick-up a prescription. They already had Xmas items on display next to the Halloween items.

Today I received an email from Amazon.com announcing their "Countdown to Black Friday."

Ugh! I'd like to fast forward to Thanksgiving, enjoy that day, and then fast forward again to the day after the Super Bowl.

Comment by Ian Mason on November 1, 2016 at 1:16pm

Ruth,that's the sort of day I would call productive. I'm so untidy by nature that any kind of sorting out is a victory.

I spent the morning at the gym and the middle of the day at a new meeting place for those who don't get out much such as psych patients, handicapped, the severely shy (me) and anyone else who wants to join in. Quite nice. The rest of the day's gone on household chores and practicing scales on my bass guitar.

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on November 1, 2016 at 11:04am

Randy, your comment here did show up.

I don't see your comment on Loren's discussion.  Mine also took a while to appear, but not this long.

Comment by Randall Smith on November 1, 2016 at 10:19am

Rats. I added a comment to Loren's discussion above, but it didn't submit. Will this, I wonder?
