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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6. 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

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Donald R Barbera Sep 27. 5 Replies

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

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

And now, a little something to lighten your day:



Scaramouch, Scaramouch, will you do the fandango?!?

Joan, I saw the same story about the Siberian snowballs yesterday on BBC. Their article has a little more explanation of how they are formed. According to the article this has also occurred in Finland and also right here on Lake Michigan just last year. I seem to recall reading about it in the local news.

I'm not getting notified either, Carl.  You might Report an Issue on it.  Think I will, too.

Is anyone here experiencing problems with notifications from A|N?

I'm not getting notified when someone posts in a group I belong to or in a discussion I participate.

I checked my overall email settings here on A|N and all are the same as they've been for years.

Chris, that is an opportunistic photograph if ever I saw one.  Thanks for posting!

Joan ... that's just ... WEIRD!

Great video, Daniel. It's very mild profanity. I liked "sentient septic tank" and if you cut Mein Kampf into tiny pieces it sounds like tRump on twitter.

As to the black son story, it's not a story without DNA.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 5, 2016 at 3:22pm

Bill Clinton's black son claims a DNA test was never taken in spite of the Clinton's claims of taking a test.  He certainly is entitled to one! There is a resemblance in his eyes, definitely, and his voice; his lips are more on the Negroid side as is his hair. He is a very handsome man and one that I would be proud to call "son". 

"Clinton, the maker of bastards"

I wonder if Clinton has any regrets? No! or he would take responsibility for his actions. 

Bill Clinton, like Trump, have an attitude of entitlement with women and money. No sense of accountability or responsibility.  

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 5, 2016 at 3:11pm

Daniel, the HOLY SH*T video perfectly states the intensity of the situation. The rising generation will not be afraid to speak out in strong terms and colorful language. There are time I really regret my Victorian upbringing, but I am a fast learner. I won't stutter with the F word as much as before. 
Joseph Stigliz made video in 2015 in which he warned about the growing wealth gap, and this gentlemanly economist speaks out strongly, or as strongly as Stigliz can mutter about the need for radical change. It is 18 minutes long and well worth the listen.
