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

Thanks for the link Paula.  I thought replacement feet was just a joke, but I can believe they might be needed sometimes.  It is sad (and anger-inducing) that we have to put-up with vandalism from those 'loving' people.

I like several of those takeoffs on the fish.  My favorites are the one that says "Bite Me" and the fishy rocket ship that says "Science".

Love the sign Joan.

How's everyone doing today?

I enjoy your company. : )

Wonderful sign, Joan!  Some people figure if the parenting styles of their parents worked for them so why try any other way?  I made conscious decisions to NOT repeat some of the things my parents did raising me.  Although my kids are not perfect, they are self-assured, confident, and know they are valuable and loved.  And I always gave gentle reminders about manners and never had to 'ground' them for any reason.  You get what you give :)

via Patricia, Great poster. Even children or adults with severe brain dysfunction can be trained, and if not, other arrangements can be made to not take them to retail establishments. A badly behaved mentally healthy child reflects poor parenting techniques. Effective parenting is so easily learned, and easily accessible, there is no reason to do a poor job. 
For those parents with mentally disabled children, the public has a responsibility to learn and understand challenges they face and not add to the problems.

The sign has a valid message; I agree and reposting.

I laughed when I first saw the replacement feed, then felt sad that such a loving bunch of people would vandalize.  Not very secure in their beliefs, eh?  Here is the link...scroll down about 3/4 of the way

Tony I love your puppies picture! So cute!
Well I do much better without any wheat, and I eat lots of protein so for me the wheat free lifestyle is working. So just find out what works for you. Anyways, the book is fascinating and well written. He discusses how humans evolved and what our ancestors ate. I am enjoying the book.

Good morning all!  On the wheat/carb topic:  there is certainly enough evidence that shows it is a problem but not for all people.  Some of us absolutely cannot have grains (celiac here) yet there are others who cannot have excess amounts of proteins.  It's not a one or the other, black vs white situation.  

A lot of criticism is shown towards the "blood type" or "body type" diets but it's worth examining them simply because they place emphasis on the importance of variance within our species, and knowing your body.

@Tony: that is the cutest picture ever!  Or at least at this time in the AM :P
