Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 839
Latest Activity: 1 hour 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.

Patricia! It worked. And it is so cute. Mindy! I got it. Thanks to both of you. It is appropriate for me at this time. Sleep, that is all I want, just to sleep.

One more time.....

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 11, 2013 at 7:10pm

Patricia, no, nothing came through, and no address. Thanks for trying. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 11, 2013 at 6:38pm

This not getting the comment has been happening a lot and I hope for an easy fix. I assume it is my equipment, because I am not getting many different people's images. Let me try a few things here before you take the time to describe it to me. Thanks for the offer to help. 

Let's try one thing first, if you don't mind. Will you please send me the address to the comment and see if it comes through from you? That is, if you time to fool with this with me. 

Comment by sk8eycat on August 11, 2013 at 6:15pm

Joan, that's strange, I can see the photo w/caption perfectly. Do you want me to describe it for you?  I don't want to ruin the surprise if you DO manage to get it later.  It's cute, and it fits ME exactly.

XOXOXOX

Mindy, there seems to be a pattern developing here. I am not getting your comments, except for only this: "Comment by booklover 2 hours ago". Nothing more. I have been able to retrieve what you send by going to my inbox, copying the file name and doing a Google search for it. This time, no luck. This is what I copied:

(http://api.ning.com:80/files/4NHhjdQBWB556ixg3uRViGYToMW94CUAx9AhpSDNTsUc7ZEzsFlzjm6J8e5GabiysAmmxrJxd0S3zFFgiNjDFeBA7jlYXflX/1000578_540922485981798_473129607_n.jpg)

_

I tried using just the blue part: http://api.ning.com:80/files

and the whole string. Nothing. The I tried only the black part. 

I found "did not match any documents" for all three tries.

Great cartoon, Loren. That applies to Climate Change denial as well as religion. As I read yesterday, "joyful embrace of willful ignorance".

Napoleon Bonaparte, I object to your video. While sexy female soldiers don't bother me, I find the theme "Kill an Arab" extremely offensive. Does it occur to you that some of The members of Hang With Friends are Arabs? Atheist Nexus has many Arab members. Hate has no place here. Accordingly I am exercising my prerogative as moderator and deleting your comment.

Funny Loren! Hope everyone has a relaxing Sunday. 

Comment by Patricia on August 10, 2013 at 9:05pm

Hilarious, Loren!!!
