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.

That's cool Patricia! I'm glad The Olympics went well! I love to watch the figure skaters. :)

Ok I am not a hockey fan, but we took gold this morning, & Carey Price, the Canadian goalie, is from a little village called Anaheim. My town was his school district, & his dad flew him here so he could practise hockey. He is the NHL goalie for Montreal. This town will be wild today!

Felaine, sorry you had a bad experience with unions. I didn't even know some weren't helpful! My husband is a Teamster, and we have only ever had good experiences with them. I guess I was naive about that!
I had a "not feel good" weekend, just my regular stuff, but feeling better! Supposed to be cold here again this week. Yuck. ALL of my daughters best friends were here either visiting her, or back home for the weekend, so she had a wonderful time. My son was out with different friends all weekend too. Just makes me happy that they both had such a good time.
Have a good week Friends!

Joan, is this you?

Would welcome the chance to turn down pain signals in cases of toothache!

Comment by Idaho Spud on February 23, 2014 at 11:17am

Realistically, I would like the ability to turn-off pain signals and have them come back automatically after a certain amount of time, or if they increased in intensity.

I think scientists will find a way to let us do that in the not too distant future.

Comment by Idaho Spud on February 23, 2014 at 11:14am

Joan, I sometime wish I had no pain signals, but I can see where it can cause the loss of limbs and even be life threatening.

I thought it was interesting when I learned years ago that part of the reason people with Leprosy loose limbs is because they can become too damaged before the person realizes it.

Sounds like it's time for me to get some seeds for gardening.

Thanks for your support. I'm glad to have you as friends.

Glad to hear that your nerves are coming back online, Joan and that the pain in your fingers has gone. Hope the feet wake up soon. Happy sowing and planting :-)

Ummmm....please remember that some unions don't do Jack Schidt except collect dues from the members.  When I was in Holiiday, our union was in cahoots with the brass, and we got NO help.  It would have been a joke except that our dues were taken out of our paychecks without our permission, and the contracts we signed were NOT with Holiday, but with AGVA...giving us their permission to skate with HOI for peanuts and occasional cheese sandwiches on Saturdays.

After I left Holiday, Bobby Kennedy (then JFK's Atty. General) investigated AGVA because their membership also included strippers and "B-Girls."  (American Guild of Variety Artists) 

Someone tried to start a union for skaters only, but it didn't work until competitive "amateur" skaters started winning money and huge endorsements in addition to those tacky gold-plated medals.  By then all the big professional shows were dead.
