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.

And so they have, in a big way, since Lincoln did his thing 150 years ago.  This business hasn't escaped the attention of American's Best Christian, either, and Ms. Bowers has no problem in holding forth with observations of her own about this…Continue

Those are so cute Ruth, Napoleon and Booklover.

Love those.

Good morning! And yes, a little cat hair on an outfit is a badge of honor.

Thanks, Napoleon, for the videos and maps of the secret lives of cats!

In Philadelphia we're at the northern end of an "area of concern for tornadoes" this afternoon and evening.

I must be SO fashionable! lol

Comment by booklover on June 13, 2013 at 9:17am

Carl, thanks, and I agree with Ruth that I think we got off lightly compared to what "they" said was expected.  It's just nerve-wracking when the tornado sirens go off!  I think my husband was worried about the Blackhawks not being able to play last night if the storm hit Chicago! lol.

Aww Felaine, I'm so glad Hairy Jerry is getting something he likes, and I'm so glad he has YOU!!!!

Steph, adorable cat food bowl picture!

Napolean, thanks for the cat-cam. :)

Have a good day friends!~ Mindy

Cat Cam

Secret life of the cat: Ever wondered what your cat spends its time doing when you're not around? Where do our purring pets go when they disappear through the cat flap? Armed with GPS tracking devices and micro-cameras, a team from BBC Two's Horizon programme in collaboration with the Royal Veterinary College set off to a Surrey village to find out.

Nearly sprayed my breakfast over my laptop laughing at those funny pics. Thanks all.

Steph. the cat in the food dish looks SO much like my Pumpkin!

I did a bad thing today...I bought 3 different kinds of frozen desserts (treats) from the Schwan's truck. How much y'all wanna bet that none of them last till the 4th of July?  (I can't help it, I love ice cream and fruit pops, and all that stuff.

Annnnnd....I gave Hairy Jerry a whole jar of Gerber's baby food chicken, and he ate the whole thing.  I guess I'll have to try some other flavors, and see how he does...except that stuff is so expensive.  But...I'll feed him anything he wants to eat...he DOES want to eat, but he's starting to have trouble chewing and swallowing...and he's still losing weight.  If I thought he wanted to give up...well, you know.  But he so obviously wants to stay alive for the time being. (I'm going to be a wreck when it's time for him to "leave the building.") It's so sad tht his original owners abandoned him in a cattery when he was about 8 years old, and he spent 5 years there before I adopted him.  *sigh* 

I wish he could speak English...I need to talk to him.

booklover and Flying Atheist, I think we got off lightly with these storms. Some thought another derecho was in the offing this afternoon.

Steph, the empty cat dish is funny.

Joan, thanks for making a fractals for fun group.
