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.

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

Steph (and everyone), the secret is now out about how cats recover from "low battery" sleep mode:

If your cell phone charger sometimes isn't where you're sure you last put it, there could be a reason!

My cats wear a watch I'm sure!!! They know precisely when it's treat time & I can't get away with not giving them any. I have to make sure I never run out that's for sure.

Joan, I loved cat meets snow!

Steph, Yes, I had trouble getting on here this a.m. and responding to anything.  Low-battery cat looks cozy for a winter nap!

Did anyone have trouble getting onto the site this morning?

The Door Into Summer is one of my all-time favorite Heinlein books (even though the SF technology is terribly dated now).  But Pete (the cat in the story) would never have played in the snow the way the kitteh in that adorabubble video did.

Here's a Cheezburger classic LOLcat:
