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.

Don't know, I just call myself an old bat.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 28, 2016 at 3:06am

Qiana, well, whatever its origin, it sounds nice to the ear. Are you soft and strong like the description of the fabric? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 28, 2016 at 3:02am

The name has such a pretty ring to it, I was sure it was a traditional name from some unknown place. I Googled "Qiana" and found these bits of information.

"Qiana is a silky nylon fiber developed in 1962 at the DuPont Experimental Station by Stanley Brooke Speck. The fiber was named Qiana when introduced by DuPont in 1968".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qiana

Given Name QIANA

GENDER: Feminine
Meaning & History: From the word for the silk-like material, introduced by DuPont in 1968 and popular in the fashions of the 1970s.

Hehe, ok, I'm a chunk of fabric.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 28, 2016 at 2:36am

"I was a Christian" fits my experience. It is a keeper, Qiana-Maieev. 

Comment by Donald L. Engel on April 28, 2016 at 12:53am

Qiana-Maieev, I think Ian Mason was asking about the nationality of your name. It sounds eastern european. It is a nice name. 

Comment by Plinius on April 28, 2016 at 12:47am

That is a wonderful farm, Randall!

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 27, 2016 at 11:37pm

Randy, I just looked at Silverthorn Farms site, again, and this time went through the photo album. What a remarkable family you have! I can't even imagine the amount of work it takes to raise all those vegetables, pigs, chickens, and those sweet youngsters. Your daughter's busy life and gentle nature must make you very proud

Comment by Qiana-Maieev on April 27, 2016 at 11:11pm

No idea, Ian. Never thought about it.
