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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Funniest Virgin Mary ever, Flying Atheist. I read recently that 1% of US pregnancies are claimed by the mother to be virgin births.

I'm sorry you had to go through that Felaine.  I'm glad you got it turned back on!  Cool interactive card!

Carl, that pic of Mary is funny! :)

Joan thanks for "Let's Dance."

My Mom is coming over for a few hours today.  I am so glad xmas is done!  My in-laws gave my husband and I some money which we are going to use to pay a bill!  Not very exciting, but there is no "thing" that we want!  Not having a bill makes us happier!  My kids got lots of gift cards for gas and food, and got cash and clothes also, so they are SET!  I'm just going to relax today and maybe do a little cleaning.  My husband, who works mostly outdoors, does not sound good with his coughing.  I really hope it doesn't turn into bronchitis!  He works 2 more days, and then has a week off.  Tomorrow is going to be a horrible day at work for him just because of the volume of stuff.  He probably won't get home until way after dinner.  Poor guy!  He has a hard job! I hope you all get to just chill today, and then there are only 2 work days left in the week!~ Mindy

Sk8eycat, I'm glad you were able to get your power turned back on.  Several years ago when I was laid off from work and collecting unemployment insurance, I had to resort to the same type of actions, trying to seek out governmental assistance just for basic necessities.  Been there, done that.  Yes, it's humiliating.  But I'm so glad those safety nets were in place when they were desperately needed.

That's horrible, Felaine. Seems that the spirit of Scrooge is alive and well.

Love the interactive card. Thanks.

Oh, Joan!  "Lets Dance" had me sitting here with happy tears in my eyes.

Thank you SO very much!  I really needed that after all the trauma and red tape of the last two days. (Burbank DWP shut off our electricity yesterday morning because I couldn't pay the bill, and I spent the rest of the day going from one aid association to another collecting vouchers to get the power turned back on.  It was humiliating.)

So I'm going to watch that video some more...and the full length one of Patrick Swayze.  He looked, and moved, so much like one of my skating partners from HOI 1968...so secksy!  And talented. (I'm still in touch with Johnny...my ex-partner...he went from skating to mainframe programming...great bod, and great brain...and funny  Our "love song" is "Springtime for Hitler" from "The Producers.)

Thanks for the memories!

Interesting lesson, Joan.
