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.

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Saturday. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

I think Kermit was/is Jim Henson's alter ego...impossible not to love him.

I'm trying to remember the name of the dog...one of Henson's earliest Muppets; he later was the pianist on The Muppet Show, but I don't think he was ever on Sesame Street.

I always loved Kermit the Frog!

How about some oatmeal and raisin cookies? They are hot out of the oven!

Comment by Tammy S on May 16, 2012 at 2:58pm

Cookies and all my favorite childhood shows, this is my kind of group! Thanks for the smiles today all!

Comment by Tony Carroll on May 16, 2012 at 2:15pm

So, someday, if you happen to see a poor ole Texas boy meandering up your driveway, hat in hand, mumbling " cookie...cookie...cookie", please be kind. I will appreciate it :)))

Comment by Tony Carroll on May 16, 2012 at 11:45am

Yes, Mr. Wizard. Or Bill Nye the Science Guy. Or Paul Zaloom, Beakman. All would be great to live next to.

Now, to the serious stuff. Cookie of the day, Snickerdoodles. Double yummo.

I'm older than most of you-all iin here; I always wanted to live next door to Don Herbert ("Mr. Wizard").

Animal drumming to Rush!?!?! My all-time favorite band?!?! Must.find.that.video!!

I grew up watching Sesame Street and had a ball watching it with my sons when they were young. So many of the same skits....it was a blast to share that with them :)

White chocolate chip with macadamia nuts! Wow! This only gets better! Hey sk8eyecat, Animal is my favorite. Go to youtube, search Animal drumming to Rush. I watch this at least once a week. Really brightens my day anytime I'm feeling a little low. Enjoy.

Heh!  I was NOT little when Sesame Street first aired.

Years ago I worked (temp job) for KCET's annual auction, back when PBS stations still had fund-raising auctions, we had an area where we put mdse. donations that were too crappy to sell on the air, we called it Oscar's Boutique.  People actually bought the stuff!
