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.

Went into the chat room last Friday night, for the first time in a while, and learned that Mequa passed away. I had been good friends with him for a time, but we had differences and stopped talking back in the spring of this year. I knew however,…Continue

Yes, I think Malemutes are bigger-boned and slightly more muscular than Huskies, too.

I was a little bit off on the timing of Jasmine the Sammy's pregnancy; the puppies (6, according to the latest exam) are due this weekend, and I've been promised photos ASAP.  I promise to post the best one(s)...Jasmine is such a good mom!

Patricia, I just e-mailed the "Flower Dog" to a friend who used to breed Siberians...they don't always have blue eyes, or bi-eyes...I think about 50% have brown eyes.  Most of hers did.  The main difference (I think) is the width of the head and the size of the ears.  The puppies she bred were adorable. 

She now lives in Oregon, and is raising Samoyeds.  She only has two, both AKC champions. (BFD) She just bred the older one for the 3rd, and last, time.

Her last 2 Siberians: Amber (the mother - red) on the right, and Rainbo (bi-eyed, wolf grey) on the left. 12 years ago. This was their first real snowfall...both were born and raised in Pasadena, CA.

Booklover, cute x2

Patricia, I like the xtian guide, and I think Malamutes & Huskies are quite attractive.

Steph, I like standing for Wookie national anthem.

That dog looks like it's been at the catnip, Ruth. What breed is it, Patricia?

Great picture, Tony. I'm reposting it in Wonderism. Thanks

Thanks for the laugh, Steph. Here's my contribution.

LOL Steph!

Love the graphic Tony!

Beginners' English. Many elderly people didn't get a complete education when young and they want to learn parts they missed - some have got English speaking grandchildren. But there are also younger foreign people in my classes: Cabo Verde, Poland, Colombia, Hungary. Some don't speak Dutch but they want to learn English, and I try to think of ways to teach them. Most of the time we get some progress, and sometimes I just don't know. A few years back there were two Japanese girls in class: they were so horribly polite that they said yes to whatever I asked them. I never knew if my work was any use to them. Most of the time it's a happy riot in my classes - I'm convinced that you can learn best when you're relaxed and have fun.

Chris B, what do you teach the seniors?

Tony, great picture.

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