Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 850
Latest Activity: 1 hour 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

Thank you Carl.  I feel the same way about you!

Chris, thanks for the hug back too :)  Our cat Lula, who is 11,  only likes my husband, our kids, and me!  She doesn't like anyone else, or any other animals!  What a funny cat.  

Glad you smiled Ian!  Hang with Friends makes me smile also!

Joan, that Bantam Chick is great!  How fancy!!!!

Joan, I like the Buff-laced Bantam Chick.  Cute and interesting.  

Comment by Ian Mason on April 11, 2013 at 4:17am

Thanks everyone for the posts and pics. Just the ticket for causing a morning smile.

Buff-laced Bantam Chick 

Comment by Plinius on April 11, 2013 at 1:27am

And hugs to all of you!

Dido really shines like satin. All my cats all knew the difference between an accident and on purpose actions - I've seen their reaction to certain people that visited us - no good at all - and much later I understood that the cats were right and I should have been warned by their behaviour. Now I pay attention to what the cats think about visitors.

Hugs back, Melinda.  You bring a lot of smiles and fun to this group.  I always enjoy your pics and stories. 

Comment by Lillie on April 10, 2013 at 9:28pm

Chris, does Dido"s fur look like satin?  Our black cat's does.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 10, 2013 at 9:12pm

I know what you mean, Melinda. There is a special energy that comes out of this group. You add so much to my enjoyment as do each one of you.

I have just deleted most of my Facebook "friends."  I want to be on there as little as possible (I do keep in touch with my sister on there, etc.) 

I would just rather be on here instead.  I like you people much better than most "real-life" people!!!  Hugs to all of you!~ Melinda
