Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 12 hours ago

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

Joan, glad you subscribed.  Some of the videos are awesome.  This a.m. I have to go over to my Mom's.  My daughter and the guy she is dating are going to watch a movie here.  Our house is small, they both live at home still, and they are both broke.  So they really have no where to hang-out.  I volunteered to run errands.  There won't be any "funny business", lol because they just started dating, and my daughter has a bad head cold. They are both 21 though.  They used to date when they were 14.  I would have left them alone then too because one reason she broke up with him was that he never even kissed her once. LOL

Thanks Mindy for the SoulPancake site. I subscribed. It looks like fun!

Great videos, and I love the climbing cat with a "cattitude" Steph!  I love flash-mobs!  I watch videos on my iPhone a lot right before I go to sleep, because the nice ones make me happy.  There is a channel called SoulPancake, and there is a young woman on there with her musicians, and they'll just stand-up and start singing and dancing, like in a Dr.'s waiting-room.  People start singing and clapping with them.  They did one on a street full of the homeless, and passed-out new socks, sandwiches, and water to homeless people. A lot of them started dancing, singing, and smiling.  Great stuff.

Patricia, an interesting video of prisoners' dancing, Jackson style. I am reposting on Twitter so my family can see it. Thanks.

Tony, that was wonderful. Just loved the faces and actions in the crowd, from children to elderly. Music, a universal language. Thanks.

Ran into this while tooling around youtube. Have watched it over and over again. Wanted to share with you all.
