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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

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

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

And I'm lefthanded -eyed and -footed but I have a squint in my eyes that prevented me from skating or ball games. I can see the ball well enough, but with the extra time I need to find out where it is exactly...  I NEVER caught a moving ball! But who needs a moving ball?

sk8eycat you must have had great discipline to learn and do all that you did. You must feel great self-respect and pride. I didn't have that kind of dedication. Your beautiful personality shines through. 

Carl, funny exaggeration! I guess "freedom" has many definitions and different priorities. I wonder what her reply would be. Perhaps, "You idiot, what about MY freedom!" I think I was pretty cross about cleaning up the cat-litter boxes. Don't want to do that again. 

Patricia, having trained rats to perform, I can just imagine someone spreading tasty food on the mouthpieces and letting the critters do their thing. 

Ian, your "mixed brain" sounds interesting. I wonder if the new research on brain/mind function will explore this phenomenon?

Mindy, I like learning of your pom-pom history! Do you still like to perform? Not everyone likes to ... perhaps we are born with the ability to stand in front of others. My daughter was terrified of public speaking, became a volunteer fire fighter and now she is a tiger when speaking to schools and groups about preparing homes for fire protection or when she is teaching safety and techniques to new fire fighters. I am amazed at her achievement.

My cats do to Lillie.  I'm always sweeping around the boxes and putting it back in.

I've never heard of that Ian!  Interesting!  I'm coordinated.  I was a pom-pom girl in high school, and I loved performing our routines to music in front of everybody.  I wish I still had that body! lol.  I'm glad I don't have that same brain anymore though! ha ha.

Love the cartoon Carl, and what a cute GIF Patricia!

I am right handed and left eyed and so are most of my family.  My son was career military and had to learn to shoot with his left hand.

My cat puts the litter on the floor.

Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle, Patricia, Carl and Mindy.

Glad you're feeling better Joan.

I'm one of the world's most uncoordinated people. I didn't know why until an old Peanuts cartoon put me on the right track: mixed brain dominance. I'm right-handed but left-eyed. Couldn't catch a moving ball if my life depended on it. That made me a figure of fun at school because no-one there had ever heard of the phenomonen. Most people still haven't and don't believe me when I tell them.
