Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 839
Latest Activity: 18 minutes 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.

Steph, I love that Totoro "cat bus" cat carrier! (And thanks for the canine greetings too.)

Ruth, a friend described the sound of the Great Highland Pipes -- when in tune and played well -- as a glorious screech. Bagpipes and bombardes (a deceptively small, innocent-looking folk oboe with the decibel level of a smoke alarm) long predate Marshall stacks and amps that go up to 11!

("Loud Bagpipes" from the Cafepress store BagpipeStuff)

There actually are many kinds of smaller, softer bagpipes that can be played indoors with other instruments, no ear protection required.

Have a great day everyone!

The Scottish Dizzy Gillespie :D

I'm lucky that the metal in my ankle is titanium. That doesn't set off alarms. My experience is that security varies on flights within Europe. A lot does depend on who's on duty that day. I think that flights to America from Europe are watched more carefully than others, basically because it HAS happened, although that's no excuse for stupidity.

Hmmm... I have some metal in my spine...  But I have no desire to go to the local airport after they named it for Bob Hope.  Amelia Earhart flew in and out of there more times than he ever did....

Frankly, I didn't (and don't) know why they couldn't just call it "Burbank Airport."  That's where it IS.  Where the eff is "Bob Hope"? In a cemetary somewhere.  BFD.

Bomb implants - that's a funny one! We've been to London this year, and forgot to mention at the airport that my partner has got a lot of metal in his body after a broken pelvis and hip replacement. Screaming alarums, they searched him three times over and he was treated with deep suspicion. Once we were on the plane we couldn't stop laughing..

That's funny LOL Ruth!
They will think of even more invasive scans and searches Ian.

Sweet music for your bedtime relaxation.

Comment by Ian Mason on September 23, 2012 at 10:00pm

The next threat is said to be bomb implants, put in place by a surgeon. Imagine what kinds of examination/search that will lead to. :(

Steph, re:TSA searching infants and toddlers...somebody got the idea that drugs or bomb components could be smuggled inside the kids' Pampers.  Yeah.  Right.  Something really lethal, like baby poop.

Pat, you know, that old lady on the plane in the wheelchair could have washed and conditioned everyone to death. lol ;)
