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.

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

Hey guys, great dog pics! Love 'em. Getting ready to head out for work. Soon these mad hours will moderate, will have more time for you guys. Until then, this is my favorite breed, have owned 3 over my lifetime. Just adore them. Beagles.

Patricia, booklover and sk8eycat - those are great!

Thanks for making me smile this morning - drinking coffee and getting ready for work and school.

Thanks for the dog pics, guys. I especially like Tab and the animated gif (both of which I've copied). Sleep well, folks.

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?

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on September 4, 2012 at 1:22pm

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

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