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.

Randall, that's a great find! Piano movers are worth considering -- they have strength and experience.

Mindy, that picture is a keeper! Teaching about hypothetical skyfathers with less power than a jug of milk (the milk can provide some physical nutrition!) is as valid as insisting on the existence of a tea tray in the sky. ("Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!...")

Or a teapot orbiting the sun....

Take care of your back, Randall!

Moving day--a baby grand piano, that is. My sister (a musician) came across a 1927 piano for sale for $300. She says it's worth $4000! She already has 3 pianos, including a Steinway grand. I have one baby grand. So we're giving it to my daughter who has an old upright. She plays and her kids (now 2 and 5) will some day use it, hopefully. But first, we have to move it! Wish us luck.

Yes, it appears so, Sk8eycat.  Some kind of space craft.

I'm a little slow tonight; is that cat leaping from a space capsule?

Chris, the water (and foreclosure) situation in the Reno area is actually much worse than it is near Vegas.  Add to that the people who are out of work, many of whom have movrd into vacant houses with no poer or water, and you have a disaster in the making.

The main thing is that this is ALL desert, or semi-desert, and should never have been developed.

We are overbreeding, and certain people are making billions from our stubborn refusal to limit family size.

Abortion, tubal ligation, and The Pill(s) are all blessings.

The self-fed cats made me smile Mindy.  I'm keeping it.
