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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

You couldn't "bear" that metamorphosis, Ian?  Groan~ like FA's pun! lol.

My daughter and I always say we wish we could be cats that live at our house!

We saw "August: Osage County" yesterday.  Very good acting!

Comment by Ian Mason on January 16, 2014 at 1:24am

My mistake. Get well Pat.

I don't think  I could bear that metamorphosis. I want to be a cat: sleep 12 hours a day and get fed and petted by a sweet old lady.

THAT would be PERFECT Patricia!!!! :)
Comment by Patricia on January 15, 2014 at 5:50pm

Well in that case, I make a pretty mean raspberry cheesecake that is light & not too sweet! Mustn't get bloated ya know!!!

Comment by booklover on January 15, 2014 at 5:37pm

Yes Patricia!  I might need a dessert afterwards because we will be hibernating for quite a while! :)

Comment by Patricia on January 15, 2014 at 5:19pm

Some of my home made sandwiches of course!!!!

Comment by booklover on January 15, 2014 at 5:09pm

LOL, I'll be a bear too Patricia!  Now, what to eat before hibernating...

Comment by Patricia on January 15, 2014 at 4:43pm

Old, but still funny....

I want to be a bear.

If you're a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for six months.

I could deal with that.


Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid.

I could deal with that, too.


If you're a bear, you give birth to your children (who only weigh half a pound) while you're sleeping and wake to partially grown, cute cuddly cubs.

I could definitely deal with that.


If you're a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too.

I could deal with that.


If you're a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling. He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat. He KNOWS not to get between you and the food.



Yup...  Gonna be a bear.

Thanks Carl!  I try! :)

Thanks everyone. Had it for a couple of days now, and feeling better. Going back to the office today. Even though I'm getting over the flu, I'm starting to get cabin fever.
