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.

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

Hello folks. Been in England for the weekend. Saw some family, 4 generations of them from Old Dear in a care home to wide-eyed toddlers wondering who the strange man was. Feeling refreshed and renewed now.

I miss Joan. Hope she's doing well.

Some grandmother, Kathy!

Ruth, that is just so sweet!!
I could pass along a remedy of my grandmother's. She drank a mixture of 2% water with 98% whiskey. She lived to be 98 and was never sick a day in her life. But, she did lay out under the front porch a lot ;)

Pass this on to Joan, please Laura.

Loren, the message to space was neat and the marketing was not bad until I watched their "behind the scenes" video.  There they bagged about their cars something terrible.  Indicating that no other car could have done the job.
