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.

You're right, Spud, those are the practical unofficial systems. When I work on the sewingmachine I mostly use my fingers or nails instead of a tape measure to make reasonable seams.

Chris, I still quite often use a couple of old systems of measurement and think they're practical when I don't have a measurement tool with me and want a quick approximate answer.  Most of my shoes are very close to one foot in length, and the distance between the knuckles of my little finger are very close to one inch.

I heard someplace that a majority of men would like to be taller. I'm in that group.

Great poster, Mindy!

Carl, all three of my kids are 50 this year. Seems like only yesterday!

I always wanted to be shorter so I could wear high heels.  My daughter wanted to be taller.  Pretty silly to wish to be different heights, but especially when you're young and more self-centered things like that seem to matter.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 15, 2014 at 8:01am

I had heard that your final height would be twice your height at 3 years of age (or 2?). According to my parents, I would be 6' tall. During my growth spurt years, I measured myself every month, eagerly anticipating the day I'd reach that magic number. Sigh. Never got remotely close--5'9" rounded up! Now, at age 71, I'm barely over 5'7". And hanging on bars didn't help!

Thanks Grinning Cat, you make me feel less stupid. The old systems are certainly colorful, but not practical at all. Here older systems have all but disappeared, no one knows about them anymore, but I remember my mother measuring cloth with an el. It's the distance between thumb and armpit, about 68 cm.
