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.

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

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

Or "Old age ain't for sissies."

But I AM a sissy, so how the *bleep!* did I get here?

That's funny Joan, & it also makes me think of the saying....'don't mess with old people!'

Ruth, thanks for proving that learning is fun!!

That's really funny, booklover. But birds can't "hold it". No rectum.

Patricia, thanks for the "start America in safe mode" link. Thanks for Lucy's tale. Like your mom, I like lap cats. But a young cat sounds great for a depressed daughter. She'll demand attention and give affection.

As a Canadian, we were freaked when we saw the likes of Sarah Palin! We couldn't believe our eyes when she was in the running & people were thrilled out of their gourds! Most of Canada is a Mr. Obama fan.

Fall & winter are my favorites as long as it doesn't get toooooo cold, but we get what we get. I think September/October are gorgeous & if I had known then what I know now, I would have chosen September for our wedding......& the following anniversaries. Oh well.

Mindy, I love the comic with the birds.  I'm glad The Great Cat Shuffle Of Rockford is making everyone happy.  Sounds like all those cats have wonderful homes and families. 

Wonder Woman traveled in an invisible plane?  Seriously?  I didn't know that.  I was a big fan of the TV show Shazam.  They traveled  around in a Winnebago.  LOL   

Patrica, yes, it sure would be nice to start over fresh with certain aspects of our government.  With the current shenanigans going on in Washington, I can't help but imagine how shocked our founding fathers would be if they could see today how bastardized their process of government has become.  I really hate and despise the Tea Party politicians.  When they were only candidates running for office in 2010, they implicitly stated that, if elected, they would "shut down the government."  Well.....they got elected and now have shut down the government.  As far as I'm concerned, they should be rounded up, thrown in jail as anarchists and put on trial for treason.  (End of rant.)

I hope everyone has a great October.  This is one of my favorite months.

Yes Patricia - I don't need to worry about any special permissions or anything to land - so having an invisible plane rocks!!
