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.

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 1. 9 Replies

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

Mindy, yes, Laurie is a lovely young woman, just coming into adulthood. She has a tender heart and great courage as well. She takes on tough jobs and does them well.

Tony, and thank you for the lovely sentiment and thinking of me in those terms. 

Patricia, love the egg carton. 

Ian, thank you. Glad to be reading your posts again. I miss you when you are away. 

Mindy, your chili bean dip sounds wonderful. I love anything with Mexican flavors.  Also, great photo of BIG dog and tiny kitten.

Tony, what a great story, and I especially love the Lion gaining his courage! L. Frank Baum left us hope and courage, coming out of the Great Depression. Bert Lahr, what a man, so many talents, able to look at reality and make us smile, and wiser.

So much stuff to comment on!  All good stuff!  I love this group.:)

Joan, what a lovely Granddaughter you have!  Lovely inside and out!  I'm so glad you have her there to help you!  Hugs to you!!!

I'm really a hermit today, as my son's car broke-down, and he took mine to work.  They had a potluck at his work today, so I went last night and got the ingredients, made it, and got everything together for him to bring.  He kept thanking me.  I told him that I LOVE taking care of him, even if he is 19, and it makes ME happy.   Here is the complicated, lol, recipe for the dip I made:

a can of chilli (I like the kind with beans in it), heated in a pan.

add one brick of cream cheese.  Stir until it melts.  Use plain nacho chips to scoop it up.  Not healthy, but very yummy!  :)

One of my favorites of all time. For you all, of course, but mostly  for Joan.

That's lovely news, Joan. I'm very glad you're on the mend now and hope that the last pains subside quickly.
