Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 867
Latest Activity: 8 hours ago

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.

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Wonderful news, Carl  - best wishes for a quick road to recovery!

As an entirely different comment here on "Hanging with Friends", may I take the opportunity to inform you all that I'm a new grandfather (6 now)! My farmer daughter had a baby boy last night, Cameron Scott, their third child. My middle name is Scott, so I assume a connection. I'll ask this morning when I go see them all. I'm very proud and honored, and, of course, thrilled!

WOW, CARL!!! Truly amazing and awesome. Rest up and recover to great health. And remember to listen to music. It's beneficial, you know.

Great news Carl! Best wishes for you and your sister!

Comment by Ian Mason on November 13, 2015 at 1:14am

Lovely to hear that, Carl. Truly a suprise to hear from you so soon. I hope you and your sister make speedy recoveries. Yes, Joan, science at its best. To think that such a procedure is on its way to being routine.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 12, 2015 at 11:56pm

Carl, this is good news, indeed. I am astounded you respond to us on the same day as the transplant! You and your sister amaze me; your well-trained surgical team performed what at one time would have been called magic, some would say a miracle, and we know it as science at its best. 

My thoughts for a full recovery and good health for you both. I can't even imagine how grateful your family must be and proud to be on your team.

Well, today was my transplant surgery. Everything went extremely well for both my sister and me. My new kidney is functioning normally. So now begins my long-awaited recovery and return to better health.

I grew up with Peggy Lee. She was so hot! So were Lena Horne and Julie London. My mother loved their singing. I just loved their sexiness!
