Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 53 minutes ago

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 Ark Encounter: A Less than Grand Opening (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Tuesday. 4 Replies

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

No, you don't, Randall! There are people who put a little strain on my patience, but you don't. A/N is also my only online social communion and I feel at home here. I was at FB and I'm still at BookCrossing, but those are no places where you can be yourself and still be respected.

Comment by Randall Smith on January 5, 2015 at 8:12am

Thanks Mindy and Chris! I know I'm not alone in the Facebook department (I cancelled yesterday!) and cell phone (no "smart" for me). A/N is my one and only social communication outlet. I worry that I comment too much, however. Well, perhaps not worry--it just crosses my mind.

Love those "cartoons"!

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 5, 2015 at 2:20am

Chris, it is nice when you enjoy's your work. Lots of good vibes come from your students. Sorry the relations present challenges. 

Comment by Plinius on January 5, 2015 at 2:05am

A lot of people do that Mindy, as the smartphones take over our lives. I hate that too, so I ended my phone subsciption. I'll buy a cheap non-smart phone, prepaid, for an emergency call or to take a picture. When people want me online I'm at my old desktop PC. I'm also under the weather because of the stupid holidays: all the work for Aunt and brother-in-law made me feel worn out. I can't wait to go back to work tomorrow!

Oh, Mindy, PLEASE don't drop out of the cat fan group.  I wanna see more pics of your (relatively) new kitten.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 5, 2015 at 1:41am

It will be nice to see your pretty face and wise comments when you post here. I agree, Mindy, this is a special group of people.

What a delightful collection of wit and excruciating puns. Thank you for sharing.

Yes, the sun did put in an appearance just to tease. No-one knows when it will be back.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 4, 2015 at 7:06pm

Bertold, appropriate for this upside-down, inside-out world in which we live.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 4, 2015 at 6:40pm

Thanks Patricia, I shared on Facebook. I liked the "A Round Tuit". 

Ian, does your "Procrastinators Association" have open membership? 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on January 4, 2015 at 6:37pm

Well that was a half-baked joke.
