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

Have a good night sleep everyone.

See you all tomorrow.

Excuse me folks, I made another mistake. That is the trouble with putting my thoughts down in writing, I get caught and can't deny that I could ever do such a thing. 

This comment and photo were supposed to be together:
Nixon impose wage and price controls

1970, Inflation 6%.

1971, August 15, imposed wage and price controls.  

1971, Inflation 4%.

1971, U.S. left the gold standard.

1973, Inflation rate below 4%.

1974, Inflation rate 9%.

1974, Inflation rate double digit.

1974, Wage and price controls dismantled. 

Sorry if I confused everyone.

Steph, Your cat with Noah's boat speaks truth. Dinosaurs and humans coexisted. Not. 

Comment by Mike Hungerford on November 18, 2012 at 11:26pm

Oops.

Sorry Joan.

That was obviously misdirected.

My bust.

I'm new here...

Thank you for the charts, Ruth.

You have assisted me in making my point.

And since I answered a question for you, I'll ask you to return the favor, and help me assuage a little curiosity:

There's a buncha' folks around here who figure I must be some kinduva' nut job, aren't there?
