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.

I've been into genealogy for a long time. It's fun, especially with internet help, but increasingly frustrating. You see, I've hit "brick walls". And being a Smith doesn't make research any easier.Wouldn't you think I could find the death date and…Continue

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Denmark really shouldn't advertise too much.  From all I have heard, life there is the exact opposite of the US and many other places. Taxes at about 50%, a government that respects the social contract between the people and their needs, unions, fair vacation time, maternal leave.  Sounds like most Americans need to buy a copy of Rosetta Stone for Denmark.

Hej Gary. The spelling's right, the weather's the same and so are the women. :-)

Hello from USA, Ian.  I lived on the island of Fyn in a town called Glamsbjerg (maybe spelling wrong).  I remember the rain and the beautiful girls.  If you see Ulla Skytte, now about 53 years old, tell her that she was my first love!

There's more than enough rain here in Denmark. Pity it isn't an exportable product, although I'd send it to East Africa if it was.

Seems like most of my comments have disappeared.  I hear no rain for most of Texas till October - now that is bad news.  I vote for a rain dance, and any one who gets rain send some our way.

But a rain dance would at least be colorful and interesting to watch! LOL!!
Comment by Susan Stanko on July 17, 2011 at 1:29pm
Yet, they would laugh if a Native American did a rain dance.

It IS kind of funny how many of us around here are actually Texans, though! I'm never embarrassed to be from Texas, because I truly love it. But I am ashamed of a lot of our politicians and the amount of religiosity here. So disappointing and infuriating. And because of it, there are a LOT of hypocrites, too. I'm kind of shocked by how many people that I knew in high school or college who are now super, super religious. Kinda disgusts me.
