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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

I'm almost embarrassed to confess that my computer is a refurbished Dell desktop. It cost me nearly $300. Printer is a HP, about $70, but with a scanner, etc. My ex-wife calls me a "minimalist". I agree.

I'm interested in the brand of computer also Randy.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 3, 2017 at 11:03am

Randy, what kind of computer did you get? An upgrade is always fun. I broke down and bought a tablet a while back.

Comment by Randall Smith on August 3, 2017 at 6:35am

Life is good! I love my new, fast, computer and printer. Add to that, a new lawn tractor (Cub Cadet). And no, I'm not buying a new vehicle. Don't want to get carried away.

Joan - wonderful story. What a great dad!

Zeebrugge and Brugge look gorgeous. But they appear as vulnerable to sea level rise as Miami. Thanks for sharing the happy memories.

That IS an exiting graduation gift.... what a lucky guy! ...and a great father too.

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 31, 2017 at 6:38pm

I have a mentor who gave his high school graduating son a one-way ticket to the other side of the world and told him to find his way home. My friend knew his son could trade in the ticket for cash, but the kid used the ticket, went to China via Europe and then returned on the train that runs the Silk Road. The youngster returned a man, he decided he wanted to be professional, graduated in business and started is own business. 

What a way to let go!

Ian, your phots cames through beautifully! I'm so glad that our friends can see what we have seen. 

Chris, the photos of Solvang and Brugge probably do look familiar to you. I will collect a few of Spokane so you can see what I saw. I"ll get you photos of Newport, WA too. It is a country town like so many others.
