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.

And so they have, in a big way, since Lincoln did his thing 150 years ago.  This business hasn't escaped the attention of American's Best Christian, either, and Ms. Bowers has no problem in holding forth with observations of her own about this…Continue

Hey Melinda. We're still here. Personally, been kinda busy. Make that alot busy. Anyway, for Halloween (and my goth friends), which is coming up very soon;

This is the Dracula Vampira Orchid, aka the Dracula Raven. Quite stunning. They can also be white to yellowish, but black is the most prominent color.

Where is everybody?

Gorgeous pic of the sun streaming through the trees Steph.  It reminds me of a pic my Grandma painted, only in hers, the road was a path through a forest. :)

Oh how beautiful Patricia!

I love that picture of the stream and flowers.

Morning everyone - about to leave for work and school.

Hope everyone has a good day.

I wonder how you guys cope with living in disaster's path when it decides to hit. I have to admit I'm very glad to be right where we are as we don't have extremes like that for weather, or earthquake. Our biggest issue is forest fire which is a worry, but for some reason doesn't seem so bad against plenty of other things.

Thanks, everyone, for a great start to the day. I always come here first and you never let me down - there's always something to make me smile. 

Stealing the "steering cat".

sk8eycat, my cousin and his wife lived in a condo in Northridge; they jumped out of bed and ran for the stairs to escape the building and the stairs vanished into a heap. They fell to the first floor. The next day they found all their china and crystal broken and a very valuable antique clock on top of the china closet fell onto a fluffy sofa and not even a scratch.
