Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 839
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 saw how bad the drought conditions are where you live on the news Joan.  It's horrible how many fires there are.

Glad things are moving on for you Chris.  We just went to IKEA to outfit my daughter's apartment for school in August.  It was fun!

Oh yes! I've got a stack of interesting new books as tall as I am (1.58 m.), lessons to write, administration to sort out, friends to visit, clothes to buy and sewing to do - before I start my courses again in September. And I could go out with my partner... but we keep the responsibility for our two patients.

Chris, it's nice to know you are coming to the final part of the big summer project you've been working on concerning your brother-in-law.  Yes, it will be nice to have him living in a freshly cleaned place with new furniture, etc.  I sure hope he will be happy and excited in his new environment that you are creating for him.  From this point on, hopefully it will be easier to look after and to care for him.  Have you been thinking yet about what you will be doing with all the free time you'll get back after this project ends?

Thanks, Carl! I try to keep up with the most important world news, and that is quite enough with the other things I have to do. I miss out on a lot of things you talk about, sometimes reading on internet for twenty minutes before I understand who's who. I read the political discussions but I'd better not react before I know what I'm talking about.

To Ikea today to buy new furniture for brother-in-law. He's still unable to concentrate on the Ikea catalogue, so it will be a surprise for him when he's moved into his new rooms. A pleasant surprise, I hope.

100 homes destroyed in Carlton Complex Fire

Our skies are gray, ash falls all around, the sun is reddish/orange. I feel so sad for all those businesses and homes that went up in flames. One woman said she had 3 minutes notice to get out when the wind shifted.  These fires were started during that terrible storm we had a few days ago. Very strong lightning strike over all this region.

Joan, I agree that we need to have political discussions, but they should be done in a different group.  I like to keep in mind that Hang With Friends includes lots of people from countries other than the U.S.  I wouldn't want to alienate them by having regular discussions here concerning U.S. politics.  Just my 2-cent rebuttal.

Thanks Joan!
And I'm on board with the Warren/Sanders ticket also!

 k.h. ky, I am with you "Let's have a Warren/Sanders ticket."

Mindy, a very sweet episode that just makes my heart sing! Observing families growing up and being close is the greatest thing I know. Good job to you and your hubby, and a hat tip. 

There seems to be no photo of an older woman giving a hit tip, so add 50 years to this young woman in your imagination and you have my hat tip.
