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

B*tch-b*tch-b*tch!  I just paid the 2nd installment on my property taxes, and I feel like I'm bleeding.

So...there's a funny anti-religious cat cartoon (from "Bizzarro") in the latest issue of Freethought tody; I think I'm going to see if I can find it on the net and post it here so we can all have a laugh.

Carl, I've never seen anything like those sculptures!  People are SO creative!  I'm going to show them to my daughter (she's an artist.)  Thanks for sharing them. :)

Naturally, this one made me holler, "WANT!"

Carl, these beautiful figures from metal utensils amaze me. How a person can imagine anything but a spoon, fork or knife is beyond my conception. Thanks for the link.

"NOT!" again!  (Yahoo Mail drives me crazy!)

Comment by booklover on March 11, 2014 at 8:22am

Thanks Joan, Grinning, and Ian, about my son's knee.  You are right about House Ian! :)   The doctors did come out and say they are stumped right now.  Great.  I like solid answers.  Too bad we don't always get what we want!

The maps are so interesting.  In the geology class I took about 3 years ago, the Professor talked a lot about the "ring of fire", and said a huge quake would be coming any time for California. 

Carl, the video is great!
