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.

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

Sorry, I tried to delete my duplicate message, to no avail.

Patricia, I am so sorry for the stress you feel for your friend. The only thing I can think of is to keep making contact with her family members, even if they do not respond.
May I be so bold as to suggest that being frantic helps no one, especially you. Do you have some stress management techniques to help you feel less stressed?

"I regret my abortion" sign carried by man. I am sure he feels pain at the prospects of ending a life. Most women do too, especially if they have to make decisions based on tough choices. Perhaps his sorrow will help him to take control of his reproductive life so no other abortion choice needs to be made because of him. He can be an influence on other men who may take sexuality as their entitlement without regard for the consequences. Sexually active men and women must take responsibility and stop blaming women.

No answers Chris, & beginning to get a bit frantic.

Comment by Plinius on July 6, 2013 at 2:11pm

Still no answers?! I hope for a happy meeting for you!

I'm here too, just trying to find resources to locate Isabel. 3 weeks tomorrow since I've heard from her. No answers from any of her kids, & now her sister isn't answering either.....which leads me to believe they're away from their computers & hopefully all out looking. I went to the RCMP for some advice & they can't do anything outside of their jurisdiction but advised me to somehow go through Alberta or  Britain. I just feel out of my depth here.......

Where are all the friends? :)  My daughter and I are going swimming today at my Mom's condo with my sister, my niece, and my nephew!

LOL Ian on the medical miracle picture!  Good morning everyone. :)I I don't remember if I put this one up before.  I hope not!

Heh! on the "medical miracle"!

Ruth, I'm using Firefox, and sometimes I have to refresh the page for certain pictures to show up. I wonder if they're the same ones.

Late-night geekery ahead...

Felaine, I've seen people post quite a few non-displaying pictures that, when I drag over the message and look under "View Selection Source", look like they were copied-and-pasted from Yahoo Mail. (Yahoo Mail displays the pictures from your email storage, so when you're logged into your Yahoo Mail, you see them, but other people who aren't won't.)

The surefire way to share a picture like that is to first download it to your computer (you can right-click and "Save Picture As..." or "Save Image As..."), then use the "Image" button (to the right of "LINK") to add an image "From My Computer".

(And I'm with you as far as being a non-Facebook-user by choice.)

I hope everyone has a good weekend!
