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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

I think Wisconsin was a "dress rehearsal" for the national election in November, and it doesn't look good for anyone with even the slightest progressive sympathies.

I am terrified you are right.

Luuuuuuvz Mr. Carlin....thanks!

Tammy, I think the Walker jock straps (supporters) spent 8 to 10 times as much as his opponents could scrape up.  One disgusting aspect of the mess is that the national Democratic party didn't help as much as they could have, and they waited till the last minute to do anything at all.

We are living in The Crazy Years. (Anyone who has read Robert A. Heinlein's "Future History" stories knows what that means.  A theocratic dictatorship by the next 10 - 20 years.  With any luck, I'll be dead by then.)

Thanks for that video of Carlin, Write4U.  He was so hilarious!

Comment by Tammy S on June 8, 2012 at 7:12am

What was the spending difference? I think Walker spent around 30 million funded by the Citizens United decision/err I mean the Koch Brothers...

Ooooo Alan Rickman! My favorite. I saw him in Seminar on Broadway in March. Third row seat.....so close!! And yeah, he's still hot. And I got to hear him deliver the BEST line: "She sucked my balls do hard, I saw stars give birth to planets!"

LOL, sk8eycat. Right on target! That was such a let down.

Comment by sk8eycat on June 8, 2012 at 12:18am

Ahah!  This is for the people of Wisconsin who were swayed by Karl Rove and the Koch Bros.

You voted for WALKER? WITHOUT SNIFFING HIS BUTT FIRST?!?

Comment by sk8eycat on June 8, 2012 at 12:04am

Alan Rickman is so SECKSY no matter what role he plays! Nom-nom-nom!  (And I'm old enuf to be his grandmother!)
