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

Well my thumb incident is beyond what I can do at home.  It was while using a cuticle tool that I stabbed right through the nail-bed, and it's too gross to tell more.  Anyway, antibiotics, soak thumb in Epsom Salts 3x daily, apply antibac ointment and a loose bandage.

Carl, lol.  I never went to church on Easter, but I'm sure I have some equally dorky pics of me in the 70's, mostly involving long-dresses.  My sister and I always wore long-dresses for dressing up.  We thought we looked beautiful! lol.

lol Felaine.

Happy Friday everyone!  Not GOOD Friday! LOL

Sk8, true (unsubscribe), but then I might miss something!  Same with the monthly newsletter. We'll see.

Great photo, Carl! Ah, memories.

Spot on with that, Mindy. I hope your thumb problem clears up. It's a really useful digit for us humans.

Comment by Plinius on April 18, 2014 at 12:54am

Those were the days, lined up for the walk to church! Who wouldn't have a sour face in those circumstances?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on April 17, 2014 at 11:49pm

OK, folks.  With Easter coming up, and at the risk of serious personal embarrassment, I thought it would be apropos to post a photo of me from Easter morning back in the early 1970's.  Yes, that's me in all my glory with the too-short pants, white socks and making a sour face.

A dyslexic walked into a bra...

A Man walked into a Washington D.C. Catholic Church Confessional.

He told the Priest: "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. Last night, I beat the crap out of a congressman.”

The Priest responded: "My son, I'm here to forgive your sins, not discuss your community service!..."

True, but forgetting things has a pleasant side to it.
