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.

Finding Your Roots

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

sk8eycat, I haven't been around in a while because a 1 year old cat is a hand full!! I didn't know that I could be such a mother hen!  Earlier today a dog chased Buddy up a 9 foot tree.  He couldn't turn around and climb down the tree.  I was at the bottom of the tree and he fell and I missed catching him!!  He hit the sidewalk and didn't land on his feet!!!  He took off and I freaked out!!  I called my wife at work and she came home immediately.  Before she did I found the cat under our neighbors' house!!  He's ok but I flipped out!  I believe he will sleep the day away and be ready to go this evening!!

I just had my mammo done a few months ago.  It doesn't hurt me at all.  We have wonderful insurance...IF there is something wrong with you!  Since my mammo was normal, they didn't pay for it.  One year I had to have a biopsy, so they paid for it.  Makes a lot of sense right?! AARRRRGGGGHHHH.

So many funny and cute things to look at here! :)

Patricia, I was making a feeble attempt at a pun. "Moondoggie" was a character in a 1950s surfer movie, and the dog in the photo was "mooning" the camera.

Ugh.
