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.

Yeah - that's so funny Tony - the ad says "cats love it" - and look at the cats face - priceless. Thanks!

Boy, does he look pissed. Probably because he doesn't have a rainbow behind him, like the kitty on the box! Hahahaha! LOL! :)

Oh my goodness, So many stomach and digestive problems. How do you keep your spirits up? Do you think our ancestors had such problems, or are they modern conditions? Do you belong to support groups, or related newsletters? Does organic food help? 

I am really sorry to learn of your health problems, Melinda and Patricia. 

Thanks for the feedback, Ian.

Digestive problems can be really debilitating. I've got a step-mum and a sis-in-law with them and can see how they suffer at times. I read a little while ago (here?) that there are 100 millions neurons in the digestive system. That's compared with 100 billion in the brain, but does indicate that the stomach etc. are the body's "second brain". I regularly get constipation and reflux when I travel because most countries in the world, unlike Denmark, chlorinate the water and that kills my digestion. I now take my own Danish full-corn rye bread everywhere I go.

Booklover, is it an auto-immune problem?

Comment by Tony Carroll on September 19, 2012 at 1:37pm

Aye Spud. Pull up a chest and down yer daily ration, whilst we praise his noodly appendage, else ye be made to walk the plank, and ye scurvy, flea bitten corpse left as morsels for the landlubbin' dogs. Arrrrrrrgh!
