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

Thinking of you & H-Jerry Sk8ey.

Sk8ey I'm so sorry to hear that about Hairy Jerry! I hope it turns out to not be bad. My dog has lumps all over, but they are fatty tumors. I didn't know about the Ailurophiles group! Maybe I should join. I can't believe someone would be so mean spirited on there! I'm sorry that happened to you!!! I will be thinking of you and Hairy Jerry tomorrow. Keep us posted.~Melinda

Besides.....if I had reconstruction, I'd have nothing to make jokes about!

TFA, Oh yes! "a new salad dressing. Franch: a combination of French and Ranch." I missed the opportunity to claim a new recipe.
Propaganda has such a sinister way of kidnapping minds and distorting reality. That is why delusional thinking needs challenging!

Patricia, Interesting perspective! I told my doctor I didn't want any restorative work done, just to be cancer free with a nice clean scar is fine with me.

The Carnival joke is hilarious.

Joan, [stepping back on my soapbox] I've spoken to people from countries who have universal health care and I don't need any further convincing that universal health care is the best system.  When we (the U.S) were having our health care debate four years ago, I was extremely excited with the possibility of finally making major positive changes to our broken and wasteful health care system.  We also had the added luxury of being able to study the various systems from other countries (U.K., Germany, Canada, Japan, Sweden, etc.) that were already in place and to see which aspects worked best.  With that information, I was hoping the U.S. would develop a hybrid of the best of the best.  Well......we all know how that turned out.  Such a disappointment that we missed a golden opportunity.  Who would of thought at the beginning that we'd be hearing cries of 'death panels,' 'rationed care' and 'socialism?'

Joan, I think you just invented a new salad dressing.  Franch:  a combination of French and Ranch.
