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.

And so they have, in a big way, since Lincoln did his thing 150 years ago.  This business hasn't escaped the attention of American's Best Christian, either, and Ms. Bowers has no problem in holding forth with observations of her own about this…Continue

Mindy, sounds like you have a wonderful evening planned.  Some "me" time is always nice.  I should know......I live alone. 

Patricia, thanks for posting the train videos.  They were fun to watch. 

Ian, I like your comic.  Today I slept in.  Must have been very tired.  It's 11 AM and I just got up about 15 minutes ago.  I'm having my morning coffee right now.  Can't get started without it. 

Now that I think about it, my morning coffee is a daily tribute to our president, Barack Obama.......it's from Kenya.  lol

Thanks Ian, I wish I could find a way to have my friend watch it.  I can't even communicate with her anymore.  She doesn't even answer the phone to her own daughters most of the time.  I really care about her, but I'm not really in her life at all anymore.

Good Morning Everyone!  Hubby left for Indianapolis early this a.m..  Kids are sleeping, both of them start work at 3 p.m..  I plan on going to the library to get a stack of books, the grocery store to get something delicious for myself for dinner (don't know what yet!), and having a very nice evening alone.  With 3 cats and a dog of course. ;)  I hope you all have a great Labor Day Weekend! Hugs to you my Friends~ Mindy

p.s.  Cute comic Ian! lol

There are films available of various train routes taken from the cab. German TV often send them late at night.

Here's something for all us slow starters:

That's rough, Mindy. Bipolar can be a real bastard.I know a few people with the problem. Stephen Fry (the actor) made a documentary about his (ando thers) experiences with it that, I think, can be found on YouTube. With the right kind of help it is possible to learn to live with it but it's an uphill struggle. When I was younger and had a diagnosis of angst my family just said that I should "pull myself together". That was FUCK ALL HELP! All I got was guilt feelings about being so "weak". I feel for you and your friend.

I love trains too, so much that I tend to fall asleep in them.
