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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

I knew that running away wouldn't help - my runaway niece was brought to her parents by the police - so I plodded on until I could leave. But I don't think you're a coward; you need to be a hero to struggle on without help!

Very beautiful Mindy.

After a week or two of cold weather (as low as -7 F/ -22 C), I'm now having warmer weather than normal (just below freezing at night and 40 F in the day).

Bertold, I'm saving that saying.  Managing stupidity would be nice, but I don't expect to see it in my lifetime, even if I live to be 200.

Nice one, Bertold. Nicking it.

I too escaped from the world by reading when young and nothing's changed since. Sci-fi was my great love but have expanded my tastes over the years.

My hormones raged at a distrubingly high level but now seemed to have burnt themselves out. I can feel a little nostalgia about that but for the most am quite content with the situation. It's peaceful.

Speaking of "the good ol' days", I've been reading my old childhood diaries. It's amazing what I've both forgotten or have no memory of happening. I had some raging hormones back then, too!  After 50 years, I haven't changed much in personality and "loves", like reading, science, golf, hiking, etc. One thing that has changed is I became an atheist.

After two winterish days we're back in the rainy season again, a wet mix of autumn and spring. I saw chestnut buds yesterday, they looked very big, but I can't remember what they should look like in January.

Is it cold every where? Our wind chill is going to be twenty below. I really should have gone to the library before this set in.

Berthold, I need this for a bumper sticker,
