Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 5 hours 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.

Yeah, but the jockey & horse are from my home Canadian province. It would have been terrific to win that.

Afriend of mine, who ought to know better, sent me this saccharine thing (watch the video, if you can do it without barfing):

Power in Numbers

PS: That is NOT "mathematics," it's just arithmetic.  BFD.

Patricia, I agree.  But if we could not have a triple crown, then let Phyllis Wyeth's horse Union Rags win just as he did in her dream.

Comment by Patricia on June 9, 2012 at 8:11pm

Awww.....so close to the Triple Crown.....damn near put us on the map.

You always put up the best pics and say the nicest things Steph!  I hope you have a terrific weekend! :)  It is supposed to be in the 90's here, and we are going to an outside graduation party today @ 4 p.m. Ugh! lol~ Melinda

Paula, it is a sad state of affairs when you can't get elected to public office unless you are a christian.  Billy Graham's son even said President Obama isn't enough of a christian when Romney is not a christian at all.  How do they reconcile this?

Comment by Tammy S on June 8, 2012 at 6:39pm

I hope that's true Tony, but have we had our 'dark ages' yet in this country seriously? I think the slavery issue was probably akin to the dark ages, as was the genocide of the Native Americans, definitely the dark ages for millions therein, so I can be a little optimistic when considering those points in our history as having completed the cycle and say, maybe, just maybe this is the death throes of religious fundamentalism for this country...

Comment by Tony Carroll on June 8, 2012 at 6:32pm

Guys, do you think this is the last gasp we are seeing of fundamentalism rearing its head? I mean in most polls, the approval of humanistic values/equality/civil rights is winning, therefore causing this vitrolic backlash? What ya' think?

Comment by Tammy S on June 8, 2012 at 6:26pm

Yeah time and again Write4U I have thought, 'how is that protected speech' when hate speech arises against him based on his name or the color of his skin or the damn birther issue. As far as the obstructionism, no other President has faced as many filibusters as this President has, I have never seen things so obviously, I'm just going to say it, bought and paid for, out right rigged and yet here the American people sit not fighting back, voting against their own self-interests, and prattling on about Jebus in every sound bite. It has become quite obvious to me that a large portion of our country has been programmed, it's like watching a charismatic work a crowd at a tent revival and I for one am worried.

I hope everyone has a great Friday!
