Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 884
Latest Activity: on Sunday

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.

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

how dogma pollutes discourse (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

"The Lord is our God; the Lord is One." "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me." "There is no god but Allah, and Mohamed is his prophet." Assertions, taught as fact, but without any form of corroborative…Continue

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Comment by Grinning Cat on November 1, 2016 at 7:46am

Looks like we're fully back up!

If you have a page where you tried submitting something that's still "waiting" to be posted -- you pressed "Add Discussion/​Comment/​Reply/​etc." and it didn't do anything -- copy your content, reload the page, paste it back in, and the button should work now.

Comment by Loren Miller on November 1, 2016 at 6:13am

As many of you already know, while A|N is back up and running, there appears to be a bug which has come out of the repair of the Error 500s, being that, with certain exceptions, we cannot create posts or comment on them.

I am keeping an eye on this issue, and when and if the situation changes, I will let you know.
