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

Ahhh.  Here's some encouraging news:

“Nones” climb to 19%

July 20, 2012

America’s “Nones” — the nonreligious — are at an all-time high, now comprising nearly one in five Americans (19%), according to a new study by the Pew Center for the People and the Press. The 19% count is based on aggregated surveys of 19,377 people conducted by the Pew Research Center throughout 2011 and reported by USA Today

I agree sk8eycat, and I like the space-cat.

Good day for me also.  Took a mile walk, watered my garden, and noticed some cucumbers & beets nearly ready to eat.  How are you doing Steph?

It may be "National Moon Day," but that's not a legal holiday.  And I'm disgusted that when the Apollo program ended (prematurely), everybody seemed to say, "Well, okay, we beat the Soviets, now lets forget about the moon, and go back to blowing money away on weapons and stuff." 

Skylab and the Shuttle were built with "off the shelf" technology... nothing really new has been developed in 43 years. Instead of playing with X-Box and FlakeBook, we could have been learning how to live on other worlds, and also how to build a comfortable transportation vehicle for the next step.

I also had a good day: some nice contacts and I did a lot of chores, glad to be rid of those. Listened to Schubert songs this evening and now off to bed. It's said that a reader never goes to bed alone - I always take one or more books, and of course there's my husband and my two cats. Good company! Have a nice night!

Hope you feel better soon Jonathan.

National Moon Day.  Yay.  Happy NMD to you all.

Dale is a beautiful black cat Melinda. I think that was your profile pic for a while, if my memory serves me right.
How's everyone doing this Friday?

LOL Idaho Spud, I never even saw that Tammy Faye Baker conversation, gotta pay notice to she who puts the make-up on with a spatula! Bow before the bronzer!

Comment by Tony Carroll on July 20, 2012 at 2:49pm

It does. Just googled it, and today is 'National Moon Day'. Also 'National Lollipop Day'. Sweet!!! (Yes, bad joke intended).

Also 'International Chess Day, and Ugly Truck Day'. 

This is what the moon landing has to compete against. I think it can take the trucks and chess, but not so sure about lollipops. :)
