Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Cosmos is on Fox on Sundays and the National Geographic channel on Mondays, but you can also catch it on

I keep missing Cosmos! Is it on a "cable" channel? I'm limited there, if so. I have the extreme basic package.

Great poster, Mindy. Stealing. Glad to hear that your daughter is getting out and enjoying life. One of the best natural medicines is social activity.

Have to wait for a Cosmos rerun - was too tired to stay up and watch it.

The jet stream looks broken. (3 frames from recent animation from here)

Yes, booklover, great poster!

April 13th and where I live just north of Philly the thermometer says 81°. Had to dig out my tank tops and shorts early. We just turned the heat off three days ago.

Mindy, VERY good! 

I have been saying, and posting, for years that I respect everyone's right to believe in whatever they want to believe, but I do not have to respect WHAT they believe.

(If a Moron comes to my door and wants to talk about "Jeeezuss" I have the right to LMAO while I shut the door in his face.)
