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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

I discovered a brilliant new way to avoid  having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two…Continue

Ian, thanks for the Russell's Teapot "fish", and the shocked kitty after the vet visit!

My favorite fish emblem is the Evolve fish holding a wrench. To me it signifies not only tool-using as a step in evolution, but also that our tools (and ideas and memes) coevolve with us.

I always love hearing about and seeing what people collect.  Because interests are so varied, it's always fun to see the plethora of items that have inspired each and every one of us to have our own mini-museums or galleries d'arte.

Thanks Patricia :)

Sk8eycat, love the evolve-fish you talked about with the fin, hand, paw, whatever. lol  I also like the fish one that says' & Chips!'inside the fish. :)

Sk8ey.....xians like to steal everything, don't they?

Comment by Patricia on August 17, 2012 at 1:32pm

Ian, would love to see your collection of teapots....do you have photos you'd be willing to share?

Comment by Patricia on August 17, 2012 at 1:27pm

Smart move Booklover!!!! I think facebook is too big for it's britches & too damned invasive as well. I tried it once sometime ago & immediately got out as I was getting things which had nothing to do with me. I even scrounged the whole site trying to find an email address to tell them to scrub my account completely off, as I didn't just want it ''disabled''. I find this site right here social enough, & email works just fine for family/friends.

I'd like to see the rear end of the GOP elephant with a "thoight balloon" saying something like, "I'm quitting this damn circus! It's worse than a zoo!" 

Some of my animal activist friends do picket the circus when it comes to town, and are also trying to get the LA Zoo to send their elephants to a wildlife sanctuary. Pacing around on cement cripples their feet, for one thing....

Ruth, I think the xians stole the fish meme/icon from a much older Goddess religion. If you stand the fish on its "tail" it's a simplistic diagram of female genitalia.  Maybe.

I like Evolve Fish because we did evolve from sea creatures who developed special fins that allowed them to crawl up on the land.

The one that made me laugh when I first saw it was the Evolve Fish holding a wrench in its fin/hand/paw/whatever.

Bad Vet!

Ian, I like Russell's fishy teapot.

What a cool hobby Ian! Do you have your teapots in a display case?
Ian that cat picture made me LOL! So funny!
Thanks for starting my Friday with a smile.
I hope all of you are having a good day!
I'm drinking French Vanilla coffee today.
