Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 839
Latest Activity: 26 minutes ago

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.

This doesn't require an explanation.

Joan, I couldn't open the Jelly Roll Morton link. Thanks booklover, lauren, Ian and tony. Great stuff.

My brain took a vacation today. Not productive at all.

The Doha negotiations aren't going well.

Democrats finally attacked climate change deniers.

Talk of 6°C rise in temp by the end of the century is more common, that's the temperature of the Permian extinction (worst ever).

So your images and music were welcome indeed.

Hugs

Well yeah, we're looking forward to our first fire in years for solstice evening, & through the season. Our lovely neighbors have chosen to keep us in firewood, & they've delivered on the promise already! At least some people follow through with what they say.

Yes Patricia, I hope your renovations get done and you can enjoy your Winter Solstice and 2013 in peace, in your renovated home!!

Hoping the best for you, Patricia.

Just been to see a film, "Searching for Sugar Man". For those who don't know, it's about an American singer-songwriter called Rodrigez who made 2 albums in the early 70s that flopped - except in South Africa where they sold about ½ a million and his songs became anthems for rebellious, white youth. He never knew that and the record company pocketed the money. Interesting film and worth seeing.

Patricia, here's hoping that nonsense will definitely end.

Update on renovations........the ''boss'' came over 3 weeks ago to look at the fireplace mess that was left, & he said he'd make it right.

We also said it had to be him as we didn't want the other guy in here again.....EVER!!!!!

He came Monday a.m. to do the job but found it so out of level, he decided to re-do the whole thing. He had to order more brick as he's not sure how much of the existing brick will be re-usable, & will apparently be here this coming Monday.

For all the troubles over the last 3 months trying to get this job done, & done properly, he also offered us a choice of a high end fireplace screen at no charge instead of installing the piece of junk the other guy said we had no choice about. He left us a catalogue to look through. We chose one & I emailed him right away so he could order it along with the extra brick.

I hope this will be the end of this nonsense!!!!!

Ha!  That's how I feel about work these days booklover.

Comment by booklover on November 30, 2012 at 12:17pm

Thanks Steph!  She and I are both extremely liberal as well, so we never argue about religion or politics.  We just bitch about them. LOL.  Love your LOL Cat! :)  Have a great Friday my friend!
