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.

Thanks, Ian, for the evolution photo.  I added it to my collection.

I like that evolution picture, Ian.

Have we had this before?

"Patience is a virtue/posess it if you can/Seldom in a woman/never in a man. One of the truisms I heard so many times as a child. Turned out to be true for me.

I'm a skeptic about these hasty police raids. Whenever something nasty happens there seems to be a great rush to close stable doors after the horses have bolted. I know that the rash of raids/arrests in Britain in 2005 turned up very little.

When we go to the store, Cary does the shopping list while I putter through the organic and the greengrocer sections. He gets furious with me as I waddle along, reading labels, comparing prices, looking at options, talking to fellow shoppers. I go up and down each isle, eating free samples and discussing them with the demonstrators. The fellow in the organic section is a real dear! He is a refugee from Iraq or Iran. We have nice little conversations if he isn't busy. 

I enjoy the outing when I go by myself, usually a day or two after we have done the household shopping. Simple pleasures for simple minds. 

When he and I go, it takes about 45 minutes in an out with a full load of groceries in the trunk. When I go alone, I might have a few little items but it takes me a couple of hours. 

I dread the time when I can't drive to the store.

More suspected terrorist cells found in Belgium. Additionally, I don't believe in greater mass surveillance as some idiots politicians want. "Anyone who wants to sacrifice their liberty in favor of increased safety and security doesn't deserve liberty." -- paraphrasing Benjamin Franklin.
