Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Friday

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.

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a mid-term election coming up in three days, and it's more than a little important.  With it we can take back at least one if not both houses of Congress from the Republicans and send a message to Donald Trump…Continue

Yes, Randy, it's very nice to be home again.  It was nice to have mom prepare meals for me, but I'm looking forward to using the George Foreman grill that I received for Xmas.  I'm also looking forward to firing up my slow-cooker.  I was so sick and exhausted this past year that my love of cooking really suffered. 

I hope you have a good time in Tegucigalpa with your family.

Carl, it's so good to know you're on the road to a healthier and happy life. Isn't it nice to be home again?

I'm going to Honduras this Friday, the 8th. My oldest child, Valerie lives in Tegucigalpa. I'm eager to see her two kids, ages 13 and 11. I hope they're equally eager to see their grandfather! I'll stay 'til the 12th. Hopefully the weather will be nice.

Ian, love the dog photo. That's me on NYE. Like xmas, the first thirty years or so were fun, the upcoming ones will be much more quiet and comfortable.

The west of England is experiencing gales and heavy rain. The north and Scotland are preparing for more floods after being badly hit over the holidays.

Wow, Chris.  What a story about your neighbor!  That surely was an event to experience first hand. 

Joan, thanks for posting your beautiful photo.  Winter scenes are so gorgeous.  I also enjoy reading your descriptions of everyday life around your household.

And the west coast of US

EarthWindMap

Observe what is happening off the western coast of Europe, Ireland and England. 

Is there anyone living in that area that can report the weather to us?

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 3, 2016 at 1:37am

Ten above zero degrees F when we closed up for the night, First light this morning

Early light this morning. A stunningly beautiful day with the sound of cold temperatures as we walked on the snow. The clear air had crystals that floated down as breezes wafted through the trees.

We went to a NYE party at the neighbours', and, as you say Carl,  the relationships were wonderfully enriched when our neighbour came out as a transgender, in a wig, a beautiful dress and a new name. Tears of joy when everyone saw that he/she is on the road to a better life, and great fun. It's the first time I saw a gay marriage turn into a hetero marriage.

Ian, isn't it fun to have little ones in our lives, and memories? I surely am happy living so close to my great-grandchildren. Just now, Brooklyn wants to type you a note.

ip=oppp, Love, Brooklyn
