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.

Goodwill to Few Men (Betty Bowers)

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

My granddaughter has a chihuahua/pomeranian mix and he acts as though he is lord of all he surveys. They live in the forest in NE WA state and he isn't afraid of anything. One night he didn't come home and they found him the next morning at the door, all bloody and badly chewed up. A trip to the vet, some stitches, no broken bones, but returned with a big part of his body shaved, wearing one of those cones. Oh! how he hated that thing. He is fully recovered, still out looking for wildlife and seems to believe he conquered his enemy. Spaz and Dominic, the black Lab, play as though they were equals. Every once in a while, when Spaz gets too rough, Dominic will put his paw on Spaz and hold him down unable to move, until Spaz calms down. 

I would hate to see a pack of chihuahuas taking on a town.

There's danger everywhere. Be careful you don't trip.

I wondered why no one had posted anything here for several days, and sure enough, I was unsubscribed. 

I wish they would put the unsubscribe at the end of the email where it’s more difficult to hit by mistake, or better yet, leave it out of the email entirely.  So now I’m reading 11 pages.

Plinius, it sounds like you have nice students responding to a nice teacher.  

Mindy, I like your Huxley post about the deepest sin against the mind.

Patricial, nice No religious solicitation sign.

I love that dog video. So clever. 

Ian, looks like Aran Island sweaters! Even the ponies need warm sweaters there.
