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

Ooops!  Typo alert! Carl Sagan!

And I meant to add that the Heinleins really did have a cat named "Pixel."  Mrs. Heinlein sent me some Polaroids of him, but I've been searching and I can't find them...yet.

Melinda, yes, I remember when they sent the Voyagers out, and Carl sagan was on some TV show explaining what the diagrams meant.  The lines in binary explain where we are in relation to some prominent pulsars.  (I think it's pulsars...)

In the meantime, I'm still playing around in Jeffs Cats Book club, on the Cheezburger site.  My latest "creation" is a joke:

THE CAT WHO PEEKS THROUGH CEILINGS Pixel Heinlein

Love it Patricia! That's one of my favorite quotes Felaine! See that thing on the bottom left of your pic about Voyager that looks like a spider? Lol. I don't know how to explain what I mean! My daughter said its a map with Binary Code of where we are in the universe. She has it tattooed on her left shoulder blade. It looks really neat!

Something to think about:

Little green Beliebers ? Now THAT's a scary thought !

Comment by Patricia on September 22, 2013 at 4:14pm

Exactly!!!! Too bad It doesn't sink in......

Comment by sk8eycat on September 22, 2013 at 4:04pm

Agreed! 

It reminds me of "Please don't pray in our schools, and we won't think in your church."

That's fantastic, Patiricia!

Napoleon Bonaparte, your mushroom cloud hits close to home. I assume you read the news that a nuke almost detonated in North Carolina in 1961 as a result of a bomber crash. That's not the last image I want to see before going to bed, which I'm about to do.
