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.

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

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

Berthold, I have to say, you're two-for-two there!

Daniel, glad to see the progress in your kitchen!

Carl, if it weren't for the fence, the Santas and snowmen would simply look like they're assembled and ready to go to work.

And on the subject of "interesting" menorahs, this year Chanukah begins on the evening of December 24, which is also the date of another celebration...

Someone's crazy about xmas decorations!

That's a lot of work, Daniel.  But it's good you are able to do this on your own without having to hire someone else.  I commend you for your abilities.  I have no skills in that area.

A Christmas internment camp?

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 12, 2016 at 2:01am

Daniel, a lot of overhead work with power tools; how is your back hold up? I suppose there is a lot of strain on your arms as well. 

It will look so good and your meals will be just fantastic.

Ian, sorry the job didn't work out for you.  Glad you're not worried over it.

Just curious, is anyone else experiencing sporadic delays getting email notifications from A|N?  

For example, I'm now getting notifications of posts Joan made 12 hours ago.  And I haven't yet received a notice about Ian's post below from 53 minutes ago.
