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.

Replacement Darwin Fish legs is funny!

Tony, I love the God Sent Darwin bumper sticker!

That's a fascinating video (or whatever) Patricia.  Do you know if it's real, and if so why is the dog walking like that?

Heading off to work. Ya'll have a great day!

Great dog pics, thanks!

I would have to do some research to evaluate that wheat free diet. There are so many diet claims and diet books. I saw one study that compared health of people who had various kinds of diets and was surprised to learn that those who ate lots of pasta did well. Now I can't find a link. Sorry. Pasta is also part of a Mediterranean diet. So I have questions.

Tony, that car owner is brave! I would love to put a Darwin fish on my car, but afraid moral, tolerant believers will rip off it's poor legs, although you can buy replacement legs...
