Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Thursday

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.

I received an email this morning claiming that 86% of Americans chose to continue the words "in god we trust" on money and within the pledge to continue "one nation under god".  Now I do have difficulty believing when 86% of Americans, agree on anything and that a survey of that magnitude would not reach at least some people we all know.  Couldn't be one of THOSE emails could it -  nah, now I'm just being cynical. It's those pesky 14% that want this religious/governmental practice ended that just might be the focus of such emails.  I, of course deleted.

In case anyone is wondering, since Vermont is VERY ROUGHLY shaped like a... Well, a picture is worth a thousand words...

One of Ohio nicknames is the "heart of it all" due to the shape and placement in the nation.  I guess that makes Hawaii the droppings and Alaska the lost luggage?

In case anyone is wondering, since Ohio is VERY ROUGHLY shaped like a heart, the whole idea is to come across like "I ♥ VOTING."

You can vote repeatedly as far as I can tell, so keep voting!
