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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Plinius on Saturday. 24 Replies

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

Thanks for your stories of falling-apart tooth, kitten seeping in a napkin holder (pics?), talking to yourself (I do that all of the time too), the koi ponds and news. Sometimes your shared stories are just what I need to get out of my own head.

Thanks booklover for the kitty Bill LOLcat.

I hope everyone is having a good week so far.  My highlight to date was last night coming home on the train from the airport.  I got to watch a man flossing his teeth.  Gotta love public transportation!

Joan, I love the aquariums.  Especially the sink.  The guy who cuts my hair has a small aquarium in his shop.  It has only two fish but he was joking just the other day how one fish has cost him about $400. It seems that particular fish kept eating the other fish, and he's spent a lot of money buying new replacement fish.  The two in there now seem to be getting along for now.

Awww!  That's cute Carl! :)

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 30, 2013 at 4:09pm

Carl, dreadful thing to happen to your little oasis! There is something about a garden and its gardener that brings out the best of people, and even with a beautiful beginning, your new landlord has no such affinity. 

I went hunting for indoor Koi ponds, aquariums, planters, and ran across these jewels. Perhaps there is an idea here that will work with your travel.

When I was a little kid, our refrigerator had a long horizontal vent on the front along the floor that blew out warm air when when it was running its cooling cycle.  On those Fall and Winter days when the house felt a little chilly, I used to curl up in front of that vent like a dog in front of a fireplace.  It's always nice to have a special little place for such activities.
