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.

I love your family stories, Joan! Wonderful how positive these people are!

I'm sorry about your back, Ruth! Like sciatica, I guess. I hope you feel better soon.

 I can imagine you're worried about a BFF with an addiction, Booklover. But your daughter is a sensible person, who'll be careful.

Can you get a secret telephone number, Patricia? It helps a lot.

Husband and I are still working hard at brother-in-law's problems. We're still waiting for him to get a place in a care home, then we can move his stuff and his cat and sell his apartment. We're getting very tired of this job - there's not much left of our lives apart from working and sleeping. But perhaps the bulk of it can be finished before August.

Has anyone else here been driven stark raving nuts with callers ''vanting do dalk do me about my vindowz gumputuh"?

I have demanded they stop calling, screamed at them, banged the phone on a hard surface, hung up, not answered at all, etc., but tonight I had TWO calls right at our dinner hour!!!!

So much for the ''do not call list''!!!!

I don't have a smart phone, but Amber Alerts get on tv right away, & I sometimes get them in an email from some of my newsletter sites. I am on Twitter, but am not really knowledgeable about how to use it.

Patricia, I'm not on Facebook either but I do get Amber alerts on my smartphone.  Most often the kidnapper turns out to be a parent or other family member.  Our current technology has allowed very swift action and information to be released to the pubic.  I have to say, most times the Amber alerts are cancelled within a few hours because the child has been found. 

Hi, Ruth.  Glad you could come by and say hello.  I hope your condition improves.  I'm sending good thoughts your way.  You should expect them in Pennsylvania very soon.

I'm sorry about your back Ruth!  I'm glad you are able to return to normal activities now.   I've had my gastro "stuff" acting-up lately, and gasp!, haven't been able to drink coffee!  But seriously some nausea and a very acid-y stomach. Yuck.

Joan, thanks for telling us about your neat family!  I love to hear how people live.

Carl, that cat-cloud-explosion bugs me. LOL

My daughter's BFF has graduated and is back in town.  My daughter is now on one of her "up" times, and although I'm glad for that, her friend always seems to be trouble.  Not bad trouble, my daughter just seems to blow all her money when she's with her, and her friend is an alcoholic, and my daughter shouldn't even drink with the meds she's on.  My daughter limits herself to 2-3 drinks over the course of an evening, sometimes less, never more (only when out with friends.)  It just seems like since they were little, they have gotten into "trouble" together.  Now that they are adults, I hope that changes.  My daughter moves in the middle of August to her apartment, to finish her degree.  It should take 18 months.  I'm hoping her friend, who finished her degree this semester, gets a job far away.  I also hope she acknowledges her drinking problem.  My daughter and another young woman tried to talk to  her about it, but she wouldn't listen.

I wonder if that is because it happened in Canada rather than in the U.S., Carl?  I don't know!

Thanks for the baby rescue story, Patricia, and for your family visit, Joan.

Cute kitty cloud, Flying Atheist.

I've been less active lately due to a flare up of pinched nerve syndrome in my lower back. I had trigger point injections last Thursday and am able to use the computer again and return to the gym. Not perfect, but better. It looks as if I may rely more on my walker to take pressure off of my back.

Kidnapped newborns occur a lot it seems to me, & in Quebec it seems more so.

We sold our house in Surrey to an expectant couple in 1976, & her newborn was taken a day or 2 after he was born, very shortly after they moved in.

I had a student nurse visiting me at that house for a few weeks before I had my youngest, so she came under scrutiny just because of the location. Luckily, she wasn't the culprit.

Nice to see the proper ones thanked in this latest case! I am not, & never will be a facebook fan, but in some cases these things work well.

I hope you have seen Cosmos: The Immortals, Season: 1 Episode: 11. It explains the source of the biblical stories that are from the far distant past. If you want more information on the ancient stories, see my post,
