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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

That's a funny video, Ruth.  It's so true! 

Good Day to everyone.  Not too much going on.  Just coping with the continued frigid temperatures and the prospect of more snow this weekend.  Augh!! 

And I just read an article yesterday (here) that 88% of the Great Lakes have been frozen over this year.  That's quite a lot.  What that means is......a cooler than normal Spring is in our future.  Not what I was looking forward to.  The sustained cold water temperatures will also cause a burden to the fragile ecosystem of the lakes for smaller fish such as minnows and the hatching of eggs of others.  One positive note, all this ice will raise the water levels of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, which are at historic lows.

Hope you laugh as loud as I did.

Cute Red Riding Hood cartoon, Napoleon.

Napoleon, I agree with offensive sites that glorify and advocate war, poverty and injustice! 

Comment by booklover on February 27, 2014 at 4:29pm
I would never think you are the Big, Bad Wolf Napoleon!
Very good saying about what to be offended by! I totally agree!

Thank's Steph, Booklover, I assure you I'm not the big bad wolf.
