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.

Re: "Mittconception" It IS in the Urban Dictionary.  I think that's where the person who first posted it in AN (in the "Atheist Humor" Group?) found it.  Maybe.


@Steph...Gorgeous horse!  I'll have to go look at your wildlife pics.

  I'm having a lot of trouble with clicking on links, not just here, but some (not all) in my e-mails, too.  Hangs up anything connected to Internut Exploder. 

And I still can't delete all the Google junk. I've tried everything, and nada. I can't really afford to have a tech come over and untangle it for me.  Unless I sell my old car to a wrecker... I should do that anyway. I don't drive anymore.  Too scary.

Monday Monday, can't trust that day,
Monday Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way...

I took some pictures of the horses on the ranch this weekend.

I posted them in my Wildlife Group.

There's a link to the group if anyone is interested.

I hope you all have a great Monday!

Love that LOL Tony!

Is Mittconception in the Urban Dictionary? - I'll look.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on July 23, 2012 at 8:23am

Sounds right to me. Has anyone submitted Mittconception  to Urban Dictionary?

Comment by Loren Miller on July 23, 2012 at 8:14am

"Mittconception" should absolutely go viral.  I LIKE it!
