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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

I put this story in a blog, but I get the feeling that today my English is not what it should be. Feel free to correct.

That's horrible, Randall! I do hope Molly didn't suffer long.

Comment by sk8eycat on July 29, 2014 at 1:41pm

Oh, Randy! That is the WORST!  I don't know what else to say, except please adopt another dog....just not right away.  YOU need time to heal a little bit first.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 29, 2014 at 12:40pm

Randy, that's a terrible way to loose a pet.  I'm really sorry to hear your news.  Now what to do?  I would imagine there are a large number of adoptable dogs just waiting for a loving home to keep you company and to continue their role as man's best friend.    

Comment by Loren Miller on July 29, 2014 at 8:11am

That just stinks, Randall; I'm terribly sorry to hear it.  I realize there ain't much I can do, but I'm here if you wanna talk or whatever...

Comment by kathy: ky on July 29, 2014 at 8:03am
Randall, I'm so very sorry about Molly. You know I'm a dog lover.
It's so easy to fall in love with an animal and so hard to lose one. My thoughts are with you.
Comment by Randall Smith on July 29, 2014 at 6:33am

I really hate to write this, but my dog, Molly, was struck and killed by a hit and run vehicle Monday. I am so sad and distraught. She was 14 months old, and I've had her only 4 months, but we became attached. Now what to do?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 28, 2014 at 1:21pm

That's cute, Mindy.

Couple of bugs in A|N I've observed this AM:

  • Clicking on a link to a comment will take you to the post that contains the comment, but not directly to the comment itself.
  • Clicking on "Reply" to a comment causes the browser to home to top of page, rather than opening a Reply window.

I've checked this with both IE and Firefox and reported it.  Seems as though something is broken in NING.  You may want to be aware of that.
