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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Very curious - a Betty Bowers video with NO Betty Bowers!  Yahweh IS here, though, and he's gotten all 21st century with his own cell phone!!!  Can't help but notice that he's a bit selective with just WHO he wants to talk to.  Meh ... got to keep…Continue

It's about time equal rights started to become EQUAL RIGHTS for everyone.....except criminals.....they tossed theirs.

My hair grew in very tightly curled & matted, which caused terrible headaches I still had to cut it back & wear wigs for 3 years after chemo before it finally softened up enough to do something with. I couldn't even get a wire dog brush through it & the texture was like steel wool.

Great news on Illinois! Marriage equality will only begin in June, since advancing the date would have required 70 votes in the state House (it passed with 61).

Joan, you mention your hair is coming back as it was originally:  straight, not curly.  Is it common for hair to become curly after radiation?  I'm lucky that I've never had a close friend/relative go through this experience, so I'm a little naive on the details.  

I'm glad to hear that you've managed so well through all of this.

Mindy, I just opened your "Defend rights of women and girls." Am reposting on Twitter/Facebook. Thanks.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 6, 2013 at 11:37am

Congratulation Illinois!
Mindy, glad you responded to the "Boo"! Perhaps people will think twice before they make their displeasure public.So many realize love cannot be legislated or even dictated by dogma. I also like your idea of an A/N Hang with Friends reunion in Schiedam with Chris.

Chris, what is your weather condition? Do you notice this year unusual from former years?

We have more snow, and melting. Trees continue to look pretty; the ground has patches of snow. The witch hazel is so pretty with it's light lemon color The high wind of last week took most leaves off deciduous shrubs and trees. There were also power outages in eastern Washington state, however, we have not had an outage.
My hair is growing, not only on my head, but eyebrows, eyelashes, in my nose, under my arms and on my legs. Seems I am returning to normal; my hair did not come in curly, it is straight and stiff as before, except my cowlicks really show up. Have some crazy patterns on my scalp.

Stop it Carl! ;) That door is awesome! Chris,if Carl finds the door marked Schiedam , may we all visit you?!

Joan, I misunderstood, but very happy you are doing well. The weather here is the same as Carl's. Beautiful trees!

So, Illinois became the 15th state to pass the marriage equality act! Yay!  We have something to be proud of!  I put it on Facebook, my sister commented Yay!, that friend of hers commented Boo!, I commented SERIOUSLY?!!!!!, and he took his comment down. lol.
