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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

I discovered a brilliant new way to avoid  having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two…Continue

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

Well, here's what I'm thinking: I'm REALLY glad the rapture didn't happen, because if ANYONE got raptured, it would have been the Good Christians, not the Crazy ones. You know, the ones who live and let live, and who are humanly friendly and not wanting to convert you. The crazy ones are violating their own stated philosophies every day, and they'd surely not be plucked up. And I'd miss my good Christian friends.

Love the cat pic...Shows that a lot of things are only a matter of perspective. 

Having a good weekend here in Missouri.  Hope everyone else is having a good one as well.

Pretty much, Ian, as long as it shows respect. We're wide open to what's on your mind, Rhonda. I'm sure you have a lot to add. It's as easy as "how did your weekend go?" or have you burst out laughing about a funny LOLcat today? Here's mine...

I know what you mean Rhonda. I feel the same. But I think it's a place where anything goes.

So, I am new to this group.  I read a lot on groups before I comment much.  Like to see how things go, test the waters, so to speak.

If I don't comment much, it isn't that I am not interested.  I am usually just trying to see if I have anything to add.

A religious hypocrite (interchangeable) would be right at home and among friends.

I just wanted to comment on the coming Rapture and say that I have done my share by setting up a filthy lucre recycling bin. That way those who are about to become the "dearly departed" can rest assurred that the evil of money isn't rubbing off on the greater community. Of course, I will be offering loans at the respected business discount of 22% compounded daily. Asides for that, I have waited impatiently for this day. At least the grounds will be clear for those of us without such understanding to gather it in peace!

Was at the theatre last night and saw "Tartuffe". There was a comment in the programme that put forward the opinion that a religious hypocrite/con-man like Tartuffe would not succeed in the U.S. if he was an immigrant. Any comments?
