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.

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

Neat picture Loren!  Good Morning Everyone :)  I actually got to turn the AC off and open the windows.  It feels great!  We had a short thunderstorm here last night, and it must have chased the heat away!  You're right Ian, you have to laugh!!  Have a good Tuesday. :)

It would seem as though Cassini has been taking more snaps, including one of the old home town / planet:


Did you smile when Cassini said, "Say 'CHEESE!'"?

Do you know that we have two places on earth,the first one is the world of haves, second is that of have-nots,if in fact religion is true then it is equally true to the have nots ,meaning you can milk her/him dry in the name of religion,l have just discovered that religion and god is distant a part............

Carl, that's a really inspired idea. Hats off to that artist.

Mindy, kisses and hugs cause give a boost to the brain via oxytocin, one of the main "feel-good" chemicals.

Chris, the weather is baking hot on Denmark too. There's a possiblility of rain/thunder at the weekend, just when I've got tickets to an open-air theatre.

I think your daughter loves a nosy mom, booklover!

A rain dance! Thanks FA! I was dancing on my own but so far with few results. Temperatures are soaring here, about 86 Fahrenheit; far to much for a country that should be grey and rainy.

Cool paintings Carl! Neat idea! Shauna is STILL on her date! Wait, that sounded wrong! Ha ha ha. They stopped by here and we met him. Seems nice, and she looked happy!

Carl, what an interesting way to protect the inner wood and provide whimsy for passers-by. A very nice find. 

Patricia, thanks for the descriptive words of god by Dawkins to add to my list. Great Growing God Definition.
