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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

Glad you're feeling so well, Carl.

Hello all. I'm back from Dublin's fair city. There were rainbow flags everywhere as a run-up to Saturday's Pride Parade. Pride was very much in the air as Ireland is the only country to vote for marriage equality in a referendum.

It was a good few days. The Who were superlative, rocking a storm and I saw 3 plays at 2 different theatres. Add to that copious amounts of tea and cake and I'm in heaven.

You guys have me laughing so hard I am having trouble posting my appreciation for your rousing wake-up! Thank you Carl, Felaine, Chris, and Grinning Cat!

The sun just rose in the far north, the earliest, farthest north it will be for a year. I'm in my garden in Spokane.

Then the red-robed cardinals burst in: "NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPAMMISH REPETITION! Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, and an almost fanatical devotion to Hormel! And nice red uniforms!"

Monty Python + Spam = Total Lunacy.  

I love it!  A classic (just like spam.)

Can I have some spam with my beer?

Glad to hear you feel better already, Carl!

THAT was fun!  Thank you, I needed that.  I've been reading nothing but political stuff for days, and it was depressing me.  (I also need to go to the hospital ER, have my feet checked, and shop for a social worker, and a new doctor.)

Anyway, when the Porta Potty show was over THIS was one of the choices to play next....for Loren (and everyone else)

Randy, I guess I sound happy because I am happy.  Although I'm not over all my health hurdles yet, I'm feeling the best I have in years.  I had such a gradual, slow decline of my health that I didn't realize how sick I'd become. 

And now for something completely different:
