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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

I have great news, the cancer cure train is leaving the station and I have my surgery scheduled for April 16. I feel fine, I am ready and I wish I could watch the surgery. Maybe I could get someone to film the procedure. Well, that is a task upon which to work.

Well, if I walk through an isle of jock straps, I don't feel any differently than I suppose men feel when walking through bras. 

In other words, poor planning on the part of the store. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 6, 2013 at 11:52am

Oh, I read further and realize the questions concerned magic. 
NEVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, MAGIC!

Looking at the effect of natural selection, I feel full of wonder, sometimes with goose bumps.  

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 6, 2013 at 11:45am

If we are discussing selection, natural would be the correct adjective, not random. Correct me if I am wrong, please.

Ruth, that chick pic is beyond adorable.  And yes, lol, the bra/men's restroom picture is creepy! lol.

Loren, of course you are so right that the answer is NEVER magic!

Patricia, you asked about playing Scrabble together using computers with different operating systems.

BlueStacks has an "app player" that lets you run Android apps on a Windows computer. An inveterate online Scrabbler I know tried it successfully with Wordsmith, the Scrabble variant he plays frequently on his Android tablet. (There are others, including the "official" Electronic Arts Scrabble app, and Words With Friends. I don't have an Android device myself, and haven't gotten into those. I play online at www.isc.ro which supports Windows, Mac, and Linux; you have to download their app.)

BlueStacks is free for now, while it's in beta.

Would this creep you out?

Comment by Loren Miller on April 5, 2013 at 10:26pm

"Random" implies that, given a value, one cannot reliably predict the following value.  Considering that even Brownian Motion and Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle describe what is thought to be "random" motion or behavior, the concept of "random" as some attempt to apply it to this reality is inappropriate.

There are still rules for everything ... and the answer is never ... never, Never, NEVER ... "magic."

Thanks, Joan and booklover.

Here's a picture I had to share.
