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.

I've been into genealogy for a long time. It's fun, especially with internet help, but increasingly frustrating. You see, I've hit "brick walls". And being a Smith doesn't make research any easier.Wouldn't you think I could find the death date and…Continue

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Good luck, Patricia. Stay cool, stay neutral, stay in control - you'll feel so much better for it afterwards.

K.H. Things like that can really brighten a day up.

Thanks for sharing the model planes and double rainbow, folks.

Good luck with your mother Patricia.

I just saw the most magnificent double rainbow!!

Since you are (fairly) near Chicago, I recommend taking the Great Northern to Seattle. And back.  Beautiful scenery!

That's cool about your husband's trains Patricia. I love trains. :). I would like to take a vacation going by train!

Those tiny things look like fun.

I never flew if the wind was more than about 1 mile per hour.  Even the best of the group that I was part of never flew if the wind was more than about 4 miles per hour.

I would like to fly again.  My gas model has a wingspan of 6.5 feet and I have a glider with the same wingspan.  Also a few small electric ones.

I think a trip in one of them would be a dream, Felaine.

Comment by sk8eycat on April 29, 2014 at 12:44pm

It really did remind me slightly of flying dreams I have had...only there was no motor or wings in my dreams.  Just myself dancing above the ground. 

I think part of the beauty of flying in those airplanes is that their average speed is only about 50 mph...that's a lot slower than most people drive anymore (and one reason I quit driving)... and the open cockpits, of course.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 29, 2014 at 12:37pm

Looks like it would be a nice plane to own Felaine.  Beautiful scenery in that video.
