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

Elaine and Joan, love the information the two of you posted about cats.  Those are beautiful creatures, both the wild and domestic cats.

Patricia, Arizona doesn't change their clocks, either.  Sensible.

50+ years ago, when I was with Holiday, we toured by rail 90% of the time, and ALL the railroads everywhere in the US stayed on Standard Time all year.  Now that all passenger travel is via AMTRAK, they follow the crowd.

Disgusting.

(My first year with HOI, we rehearsed in Minot ND, and they were trying Daylight time...it was twilight till almost midnight.  The local yayhoos drove around and around the town all bloody night.

We hated it; we had to be on the ice at 8:30AM....that meant getting up around 6AM if we wanted to get any breakfast in the hotel's tiny coffee shop.

Felaine, I enjoyed the photos of those cats very much. The Fishing Cat (Prionailurus viverrinus) rang a few bells in my head, so I looked them up and went back and reread the information about the Bengal cat. They look alike, their characteristics are alike. Here is a little blurb on Bengal cats, the domestic kind. Notice the markings on their heads and their love of water. 
Domestic Bengal Cats: an Exotic Cat Breed

Notice its facial markings and compare them to the Fishing Cat.

I'm still trying to get used to Daylight Squandering Time; I have always hated it.  I mean, HOW are we "saving" anything, and what good does it do, except give after-work golfers an extra hour to play? All it ever did for me was blind me as I was driving home from work...facing directly west.

Apparently dogs can have parasomnias too. That looked a lot like sleepwalking when the "running" dog got up and crashed right into the wall. I had a few brief episodes jumping out of bed from nightmares. Apparently grinding your teeth during sleep is also a parasomnia, which I do nightly.

That Napoleon penguin gif is a tad creepy.

I hope all of you in the Northern Hemisphere enjoyed the first Spring weekend.

No, Joan, I didn't make that gif.  I only steal gifs, I don't know how to make them.  :)

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 23, 2014 at 2:53pm

Carl, did you make that gif? It's great. Do you like it, Napoleon? Oh so many clever people.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 23, 2014 at 1:36pm

Just for you, Napoleon......
