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.

Most people think of THE holocaust, as if there was only one of them. How come they never consider the mass killings of Armenians, gypsies, Cambodians, Vietnamese, Africans, Chinese. And I haven't even started on crimes against women and gays.  Thanks for the title, I put it on my TBR-list - a very long list, I'm afraid.

Chris, I just recently heard about "The Year 1000."  I'm told it is a very good book.  I'm about half way through "King Leopold's Ghost."  It was recommended to my by Daniel, our friend Sentient Biped.  It's a really good and interesting book about the huge slaughter of millions of Africans at the turn of the 20th Century.  Most people today are not even aware that such horrible events took place, despite the fact that the number of people killed is on par with the World War Two Holocaust.

They ARE beautiful, Mindy!

I made a big pan of chili sin carne y con fruta, enjoyed it very much and froze the left-overs for another day.

Reading: The year 1000 - what life was like at the turn of the first millenium, Lacey & Danziger. Very interesting and entertaining!

The Anne Perry series looks good, Mindy! Thanks for the idea. I'm almost at the end of the Brother Bartholomew series by Susanna Gregory - mystery in 14th century Cambridge. I love her descriptions of ordinary life!

Mindy, great photo of your kids.  Beautiful, beaming smiles. 

I spent the day at my sister's house and had a fabulous meal.  She's a top-notch cook.  All the food was delicious, but I think the stand-out dish was the mashed sweet potatoes with curry.  A great combination of flavors with a kick!  Now I have a desire for Indian food.  I promised my nephew, who just moved here from California last month, that I'm going to take him to my favorite Indian restaurant.  

I'm very lucky.  I was on the "on-call" list for work today.  Apparently I wasn't needed, so they never called.  I was able to enjoy the whole Thanksgiving day with my family.  We sure did laugh a lot.  It was a fun day.

Thank you! Right now Im reading a series by Anne Perry- The Thomas and Charlotte Pitt Novels. They are mysteries set in the late 1800's. I read lots and lots of different authors. I don't like science- fiction though. What do you like to read?

Your children are lovely booklover.  And, per your name, read any good books lately?  I'm an avid reader myself.

Here are my beautiful babies (21 & 19) at Thanksgiving today.  I am so happy they are mine!!! :)

Thanks Chris!  My mother-in-law is a good cook, and I had a great meal!  No breakfast, just one big meal topped-off with a slice of pumpkin pie! yum!
