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

Nice to see that you're all enjoying the weekend, spending time with families etc. I'm off to see mine in England on Wednesday. Looking forward to that even though a lot of the time will be spent hospital/care-home visiting.

This should really go in Steph's Birds group, but I felt like sharing it with everybody in here.

Booklover you have such a beautiful daughter and a beautiful black kitty too.

Joan that feast sounds wonderful - so nice to have your family there with you.

Beautiful hiking pictures Joan.

Sunday morning, at my daughter's home with her husband and soon to be joined by two grandaughters and their mates, and five great-grandchildren, celebrate coming spring. Of course a big feast of baked ham, au gratin potatoes, cole slaw, and all the trimmings send out aromas as they bake and marinate. 

My granddaughter, her mate, and their blended family of five children hiking this morning sent back these photos. We will all be together this evening with a shared dinner. 

Snow on the ground in the forest that surrounds their home has almost melted. A white rabbit and deer peak in on us, just checking in. Even Dominic and Spaz, dogs, watch them, but accept wild  visitors. There is something special about this family.
