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.

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

Unfortunately the great Redwood Forrests North of the San Francisco Bay area are dying because the fog that provides moisture isn't as predominante.  Same with Abalone, which are often gathered (poached)  by illegal fishing.

Thanks, Daniel, for a list of trees that resist burning.

Arrived safe in Washington DC. Eaten my first Maryland crab cake - delicious. My body is telling me that it's 3 a.m. so time to go to bed. More later.

Over a 1000 fires in British Columbia, and the fire season is not over yet. It might be a hard job to plant two trees for every one that was lost, even impossible.

The forests have much the same action taking place. As the soils dry up in the forest, the trees become distressed and subject to insect infestation and fires. That is what the west coast of the US experiences now.

Daniel, at least! the smoke has been dreadful but skies are clear today. Patricia and her husband, Rick, continue to have the thick smoke. 

As the tundra dries, it becomes excellent fuel for a fire. It is an interesting land on which to take a walk. There are piles of living, growing moss, with water channels all around that drains when the soil is moist. When the water dries up, the moss dries and becomes fuel for a fire.
