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.

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

I was feeling depressed, because so few people viewed my video. Then Bradley Dribble put it in his blog. Horray! Now I don't feel 100% useless.

Here's a bit of irony.  Just a few days ago several of us on here were talking smack about Facebook (Fakebook, Flakebook, etc.) 

Here's a list from Glassdoor.com of their "Employees' Choice Awards" for the top 50 "Best Places to Work."  Number one on the list?  Facebook.  Take that, all you haters! lol 

And I have to admit, I was a little surprised to see Bain & Company come in at number four.  Who would have thought that taking over struggling companies, dismantling them, and sending those jobs overseas would be such a pleasure.

Steph, the wrongly assembled cat is funny, and the cat with the knitted had had me laughing much.  Thanks.

Sk8eycat, you can run, but you can't hide.  God will find you and smack you down for ending a sentence with a proposition :)  BTW, may I call you skycat?  I have a hard time remembering how to spell sk8eycat.

Steph, the ear boop is cute.  Saving it.

I was going to make a comment at 12 noon and 12 minutes and 12 seconds, but I'll probably be at the library at that time.  Just thought it would be fun to write 12/12/12 12:12:12

Ian, glad to know I can ignore that rule (I was going to anyway:)  

Grinning cat, thanks for the interesting article.  I often get technical and nit-picky, but I don't think I'm a pedant (new word for me), as I'm not trying to put anyone down.  I just appreciate accuracy and precision.  However, I'm far from perfect, so I try not to nit-pick too often and be called a hypocrite :)

That reminds me of a post I responded to on the Peanuts Comic Strip 2 days ago.  One guy said he had "winter for a month now", and was corrected by another that said "You’ve had extremely cold weather for a month. You haven’t had ANY Winter yet."  It irritated me, so I responded with "Some people may have a need for an official (arbitrary) start of winter, but not me. Winter starts when I say it does. Don’t give a harry rat’s patootie when the arbitrary one starts."

That started me thinking.  Is there a practical reason for a set time to start winter?
