Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 837
Latest Activity: 16 hours 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.

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

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

... hope for the best and prepare for the worst ...

- and vote for the candidate likely to do the least amount of damage.

Who are our allies? Could be anyone, and once you start to have some success you get more allies. I won't consider politicians allies: they will use our interest like small change, no matter what they promise.

Thank you, Melinda. What you say warms my heart. HUG.

I think that's the same tune, Joan but I miss Jelly Roll Morton's "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, if the women don't get ya, the liquor must".

A change in society will come when those who have power begin to sleep nervously at night.

OK, if politicians will not make a helpful contribution, then who are our allies? Environmentalists, wage earners, foreign countries who feel or were in fact exploited, small farmers and home gardeners? Any others? 

Comment by Plinius on November 29, 2012 at 12:26am

We're all working at the same project, Joan! But I'm not at all confident that politicians will make a helpful contribution - for me it's business as usual: hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 28, 2012 at 7:47pm

Oh dear! I hope I don't lose friends over my net statement, but now is the time to start thinking and acting toward a next election. We know Obama won't be a candidate next time; who should be? 

Someone who respects and honors:

* labor as much a capital?

* the environment? 

*others of different nations, not to be exploited but to be empowerers of flourishing of all?

* water and soil and air? 
Please don't "un-friend" me for my eagerness to build a healthier and wiser and more responsible population of the Earth!

World Population 7,081,949,110 and growing exponentially.

Ian, I couldn't get the link but googled and found this one:

"Flee as a bird" & "oh didn't he ramble"

The first bit is "Flee as a bird" a typical New Orleans Dirge; the second part in march tempo is "oh didn't he ramble"

What a way to go!

What cute stuff today. Future - love those lazer eyes cats and it does reming me of Village of the Damned Flying Atheist. LOL Ruth - it is too soon. Congrats on your smartphone Melinda. I hope you are enjoying it.

Comment by booklover on November 28, 2012 at 4:02pm

lol Ruth, yep it's too soon to talk about another election!  You certainly don't belong in the adults that don't know technology! I am really impressed with all the things you have been talking about learning and doing!  I just got my first smartphone and I'm slowly learning how to use it! :)

Very funny lazer eyes! ROFL, Joan. That internet generation gap cuts close.
