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 everyone! So nice to come here and be with all of you!
I'm having my coffee too. It's chocolate truffle coffee.
I'm enjoying all the posts here!
Love the cat and human reading Booklover (Melinda). Good stuff.
Sk8eycat I agree on the low fat lie. It's carbohydrates that do the damage to the body. I have a book on that - I will come back and post about the book.
I hope all of you are having a great day!
Big hugs to all my friends!

Idaho: This whole "low fat" thing is a big fat lie!  The amount of fat in one's diet has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of cholesterol in one's arteries; it's simple carbohydrates that cause the damage by affecting the amount of insulin the body demands.  I don't understand all the details, and it is sort of counter-intuitive, but nothing we eat goes directly from the digestive tract into the bloodstream.  Bodies are very complex, and rather screwy, machines. And they certainly were not put together by any "intelligent" designer...as anybody with lower back problems will tell you, IF they are honest.

Steph: I forgot to tell that kitteh who loves McDonalds NOT to eat anything with onions on it. Ever.  It's poison for kittehs.

Everyone: I think I invented a new word last night, at least I've never seen or heard it anywhere:

Christianinny - self-explanatory.

There are also Mormoninnies.....and ElRoninnies.

Now I think I need to get busy and pay some bills...ack!

sk8eycat, I so agree with you about the good parts of the chicken.  You haz spokun a mouthfull!

Comment by sk8eycat on August 14, 2012 at 11:48pm

Oh!  Lotsa good pics tonight!

Steph: at least that kitteh has the good taste to prefer McDonalds over Chick-Fil-A! 

My Hairy Jerry has developed a taste for Schwans oven roasted drumsticks (I have to pinch off little pieces for him to keep him away from my plate.)

PS: I am SO tired of ads for "healthy skinless, boneless white meat" chicken...I've always preferred drums and thighs, MUCH more juice and flavor, and the amount of fat doesn't mean Jack Schidt.

Ai haz spokun!

Great pictures all round. As for the black dog and cat; imagine stepping out of your Tardis and seeing them, Steph.

Comment by Steph S. on August 14, 2012 at 10:41pm

I got you all some dogs and cat pictures.

That's a really funny dog picture Patricia.

Thanks.

Comment by Tony Carroll on August 14, 2012 at 9:46pm

Hahahaha! That's great, Patricia. I'm definately going to repost this one. My sister will love it!

Comment by Steph S. on August 14, 2012 at 9:29pm
Love the dog picture Tony - ok I'll get some dogs too.
Love to make you smile!
Comment by Paula T. on August 14, 2012 at 9:10pm
Tony, I second the motion for more dog pictures!! :)
Comment by Tony Carroll on August 14, 2012 at 8:34pm

sk8eycat, loved the Willie Wonka. Am stealing it. Hey, at least I'm an honest thief.

Ian, great sheep pic. Made me laugh. Haggis? I've tried it. Couldn't pay me to try it again. In fact, I'd pay NOT to ever eat it  again. Yeeech!

Loved it Steph. Your pics always make me smile.

I know most of us love cats, really any animals. So with that in mind, dogs.
