Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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

Such Lyrics!

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

Sk8eycat, I'm glad you were able to get your power turned back on.  Several years ago when I was laid off from work and collecting unemployment insurance, I had to resort to the same type of actions, trying to seek out governmental assistance just for basic necessities.  Been there, done that.  Yes, it's humiliating.  But I'm so glad those safety nets were in place when they were desperately needed.

That's horrible, Felaine. Seems that the spirit of Scrooge is alive and well.

Love the interactive card. Thanks.

Oh, Joan!  "Lets Dance" had me sitting here with happy tears in my eyes.

Thank you SO very much!  I really needed that after all the trauma and red tape of the last two days. (Burbank DWP shut off our electricity yesterday morning because I couldn't pay the bill, and I spent the rest of the day going from one aid association to another collecting vouchers to get the power turned back on.  It was humiliating.)

So I'm going to watch that video some more...and the full length one of Patrick Swayze.  He looked, and moved, so much like one of my skating partners from HOI 1968...so secksy!  And talented. (I'm still in touch with Johnny...my ex-partner...he went from skating to mainframe programming...great bod, and great brain...and funny  Our "love song" is "Springtime for Hitler" from "The Producers.)

Thanks for the memories!

Interesting lesson, Joan.

Kind of like "The Shamy" on The Big Bang Theory.

Thanks Felaine, I like the Elion interactive scene.

BTW, our first names are nearly the same.  Mine is Francis.

I've seen this one before, but I enjoy it, so I thought I'd spread it around:

Click "Elion". After looking at the image, drag your mouse over it.

Thank you, Ian.  The same to you.
