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.

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

Chris B, what do you teach the seniors?

Tony, great picture.

I'm off to work. My thought for the day.

Comment by Plinius on September 4, 2012 at 12:47am

What a lot of patience you must have to do the train and the landscape, but it looks very good!

Today I start teaching my class of senior citizens again, so I'm off. Have a good day!

Patricia: That's an amazing train layout!  I watched it and watched it, and turned green with envy.  I've wanted a model train since I was about 8 years old...a GOOD model, not a "toy" Lionel train.  Never got one, but 2 weeks after I graduated from high school I started my 3-year career with an ice show.  We almost always travelled by train, and I loved it!

My dream trip is to go from Los Angeles to Seattle on the Coast Starlight, get to Vancouver, BC by bus or ferry, and then take a train to Winnipeg, switch to another train and go on to Churchill.  I wanna see polar bears and the Aurora, and I don't really care whether I come home or not. (Maybe go back to Winnipeg, and then as far east as I can go.  I'd like to see the Bay of Fundy...)

Tee-hee!

Very pretty, Patricia!  Love villages near bodies of water like that.

And for a bit of random nonsense:

Comment by Ian Mason on September 3, 2012 at 10:21am

That looks like a smashing place to live Patricia. I love places where there are opportunities for good, long walks in natural surroundings.

Comment by Plinius on September 3, 2012 at 1:27am

What a beautiful place. Patricia! Now that you're talking birds, I notice that the swallows are out of sight - gone south already?

Comment by Derek Bly on September 2, 2012 at 6:01pm

Patricia, beautiful place. I know you're in Williams Lake, but when the photo first popped into view, I thought for a second that it was Castlegar! It's similar in that you drive down into it and there are some great views from the highway. Love B.C.

For the past several weeks, I've been hearing the interesting sound of and watching the interesting formation changes of Geese.  They're heading Southeast, but I don't know where they're going.

There is a pond to the SE where they were coming from and going to this winter, near where I was ice-fishing in January.

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 2, 2012 at 12:18pm

I heard a flock of geese yesterday but didn't see them.
