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.

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

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

Good one. Carl.

Yes, there have been some hefty storms this winter. I've seen a lot of trees that have fallen during my walks in the woods. Which reminds me: see next post.

I admired Iceland's response to the 2008 financial crisis. We saw a program about it. They concluded that the bankers had wasted Iceland people's money on stuff like expensive cars and parties. It's a small community, so inherently more transparent. People could more easily see the capital flow.

I haven't seen Stephanie around lately.

I sing harmony to your "The witch is dead", Randall.

Joan, you probably mean this group. Welcome to GeezerLand. I do stuff like that too. Love the wind-blown dog picture, and Hotel California acapella. Thanks. i don't waste my time watching Republican so called debates.

Comment by Randall Smith on February 14, 2016 at 7:45am

Has anybody heard from Stephanie? It's been awhile.

Comment by Randall Smith on February 14, 2016 at 7:44am

I have to unabashedly admit that when I first heard that Justice Scalia had died, I shouted out "GOOD!" And I couldn't help but start singing "The witch is dead" from Wizard of Oz!  Now we'll see where the chips will fall. I semi-watched the Republican debate last night and was appalled by the candidates responses to selecting the next justice.

Hotel California - Cubanos Acapella

I have not been able to get my "education, politics, religion" group for two days. Can you find it?  

Comment by Randall Smith on February 13, 2016 at 7:38am

It is by sheer coincidence that I picked up Darwin, His Daughter & Human Evolution (by Randal Keynes) at the library yesterday! Good timing on "his day".

Another memorable scene:

"A man watches as a wave hits the beach on February 8, 2016, in Newhaven, East Sussex. Storm Imogen is the ninth named storm to hit the UK this season. This year's storms are being named in an effort by the Met Office and Met Eireann to increase public awareness and safety. They were named by public ballot and there are no names for the letters Q, U, X, Y, and Z.”
