Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 850
Latest Activity: on Monday

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.

Here are two really cool time lapse videos of Chicago.  I do admit, I love the hustle, bustle and beauty of a large city.

I hope that woman tossing kibble to a roomful of cats is just somebody's idea of a joke, and not a real hoarder.  The room looks clean, and the cats look healthy, but just thinking about hoarders makes me shudder.

It was two hoarders that ruined the elegant Cat Hotel; the city had to get a haz-mat team in there to clean it up, and the place still smells after being vacant for 2 years.

Breaks my heart because we worked so hard for more than 10 years to keep it clean, and attractive enough to appeal to people like Jay Leno, Stephanie Edwards, and Loretta Swit....and other members of Actors & Others for Animals.  (Word of mouth advertising is the best kind.)

Damn.  Damn.  Damn.  Damn.

Ever since Mitt Romney lost the presidential election, it's been awhile since we've heard from the Mormon's.........

I think I have the job; it all depends on when or whether Sharon's surgery is scheduled. I hate to say this, but I think she needs some serious liposuction or something first, or the new hip joint won't help her much.  Oh, hell...what do I know?

In the meantime, this my wish for all of us RIGHT NOW!
