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.

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

That is true Felaine! How cute your cat friend must be. Within our city-limits we are only allowed to have 4 cats &/or dogs. We are at the limit, or I'd go to the shelter and get another one right away!

Melinda, your daughter ought to be fairly safe driving today...all the crazies will be glued to a TV somewhere watching the Stoopid Bowl.

The cat in the "he-did-it" photo looks a lot like my friend Duncan...such a handsome devil. I'll be staying with him next week, and off the net.

Ever get the feeling that you're surounded by highly-educated, overpaid idiots?  Yes.  Am I familiar with bosses making bad decisions?  Yes.

Patricia, thanks for the Separation and Superstitions posters.

Steam away Ian, I know that sort of struggle. Husband and I have been curators for an old demented aunt for some years now... and it's only recently that things have calmed down a bit. We got a lot of ugly insinuations from family who wouldn't lift a hand to help; then we had to rescue aunt from a ´friend´ who was after her money; we organised the help aunt needed; we moved her to a care home in this neighbourhood; sorted out her administration -  thinking all the while that we could have worked a lot better and quicker without the highly-educated overpaid idiots... not entirely true, there were some people who really did a neat job, so we were lucky there. But the whole process cost buckets full of frustration!

Carl and Ian, cool you guys have tee-shirts like those!  Glad you liked the he-did-it pic Carl.  I love those silly pics and the funny captions people come up with.

Ian, I'm sorry about all your troubles.  How frustrating!!!!  My Mom always asks "Can't anybody DO THEIR JOB?!!!"  It sure seems not.  My husband is "blue-collar", and he just LOVES (ha ha) when the bosses (HUGE company) tell him how to do his job.  They are SO far off of what needs to be done and how.  They sit in their offices with their degrees and make BAD decisions.  Meanwhile, my husband (and thousands of others) are the ones who actually DO the job, are who people think of when they think of that company, know the customers, have good relationships with them, know the best way to do things, etc.  It's SO FRUSTATING!

Wow, a solicitor who FORGOT half the paperwork?!!!  SO unacceptable!!!

{{{hugs}}} to you!~ Melinda

Comment by Ian Mason on February 3, 2013 at 9:59am

TFA, that's the one.

I want to let off a bit of steam :-(

Have recently been in England to visit my Mum, who's now in a care home. We, the family, were originally told that the home would be organising her dementia assesment. Now they say that isn't the case and that it's our responsibilty and trying to get a local doctor interested is an uphill struggle.

On top of that, I thought that I had signed all the paperwork for joint power of attorney with my brother. Now I've got a message saying that the solicitor "forgot" half of it and the rest will have to be done by registered, international post, which costs a lot of money.

Came back to Denmark to a repaired computer that has started playing up again within a few days.

Ever get the feeling that you're surounded by highly-educated, overpaid idiots?

Thanks for the space for a little rant.

Goooood morning, Everybody. 

Ian, I also have a T-shirt with "I have a personal relationship with reality" on it.  It's from 'The Thinking Atheist.'  Does anyone listen to his (Seth Andrews) podcast?  He's really does a great job.  

Melinda, I LOVE the 'he-did-it' pic.  I LOL'd.

Felaine, Patricia, and Joan, great stuff!  Is anyone watching the Superbowl? I just want to see if there are any clever commercials! Our daughter drives back to her University this afternoon. I'll feel better when she calls and says she's back at her apartment safe & sound!~ Melinda

Comment by Ian Mason on February 3, 2013 at 12:51am

Melinda, it sounds like you're having a great time. Enjoy the warmth :-)

Yes, great billboard. I've got the T-shirt.
