Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: 8 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.

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

Good stuff everyone!  I posted this pic in a discussion, but I liked it so much I wanted to post it here in case some of you hadn't seen it.

It is almost Friday and the weekend.

Patricia, that's a classic song.  I have it programmed into one of my Pandora radio stations.  Playful, sophisticated and sexy.  Great cocktail music.

Or "Old age ain't for sissies."

But I AM a sissy, so how the *bleep!* did I get here?

Ruth, thanks for proving that learning is fun!!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 2, 2013 at 7:30pm

That's really funny, booklover. But birds can't "hold it". No rectum.

Patricia, thanks for the "start America in safe mode" link. Thanks for Lucy's tale. Like your mom, I like lap cats. But a young cat sounds great for a depressed daughter. She'll demand attention and give affection.

Mindy, I love the comic with the birds.  I'm glad The Great Cat Shuffle Of Rockford is making everyone happy.  Sounds like all those cats have wonderful homes and families. 

Wonder Woman traveled in an invisible plane?  Seriously?  I didn't know that.  I was a big fan of the TV show Shazam.  They traveled  around in a Winnebago.  LOL   

Patrica, yes, it sure would be nice to start over fresh with certain aspects of our government.  With the current shenanigans going on in Washington, I can't help but imagine how shocked our founding fathers would be if they could see today how bastardized their process of government has become.  I really hate and despise the Tea Party politicians.  When they were only candidates running for office in 2010, they implicitly stated that, if elected, they would "shut down the government."  Well.....they got elected and now have shut down the government.  As far as I'm concerned, they should be rounded up, thrown in jail as anarchists and put on trial for treason.  (End of rant.)

I hope everyone has a great October.  This is one of my favorite months.

Yes Patricia - I don't need to worry about any special permissions or anything to land - so having an invisible plane rocks!!
