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.

Joan, the story about the horseradish was Carl's.  I loved your story about the egg-hunt.  What a neat Granddaughter you have!

Napoleon, Thanks for the information about the Cat Video Festival! I had never heard of it.  Really neat!

I wish it would warm-up here!  I am trying to lose weight also Spud, and it's so chilly I need ear-muffs to go for a walk. Ugh.

Have a good day all~ Melinda

All this talk & views of chocolate easter bunnies is making me hungry for chocolate!!  So far I'm resisting because I'm eliminating sugar and refined carbs from my diet to try to get rid of 60 pounds.

Joan, I love the story of your genius granddaughter's easter egg hunt.

I had Sunday dinner at my granddaughter's home with the love of her life and their blended family of five children. She arranged a scavanger hunt with plastic eggs full of treats and real colored eggs. At each egg, there was a note hinting where the next egg was located and set the locations from north and south and east and west and kept them running all over the acreage. By the time the last egg came in, they were so pooped they could hardly move! For the little ones, she hid eggs just for them in different locations so that each child ended up with a nice little basket of eggs, all smiles. She is a genius.

Chris, Earth; I am in love with this magnificent sphere! The Lighting strikes, Aurora Borealis, atmosphere band, rising Orion over Earth! Oh, my heart does sing. 

Ruth, very sorry to learn of your pinched nerve! Do take care! Thank you for your encouragement. I, too, want to express how much strength and pleasure I gain from your posts. 

TFA, I really laughed when I read your story! Our family used to get together every autumn to harvest and preserve horseradish. We did it in our garage and driveway, with doors wide open, fans blowing from inside out, as we shredded it, bottled it with vinegar, and then had a feast using freshly shredded horseradish on a great autumn dinner. I will try dried apricots dipped in chocolate! Sounds delicious. 

Melinda, enjoyed your story of horseradish and relatives.
