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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

The Bloody Mary with beer & Snap-E-Tom has a bit of a bite.  You can also use regular tomato juice and a squeeze of lemon, or your favorite flavor of V-8.  It's a nice cooler.

I also am reminded of a scene from a TV mini-series called "Fresno," starring Carol Burnett.  T'was a spoof of "Dallas."  This wealthy family was seated at an elegant breakfast table, and drinking Bloody Marys with a giant stalk of celery in each glass as a swizzle stick.  Nobody took their celery out of the glass when they took a sip, so they were getting poked in the eye/nose/whatever.  With perfectly straight faces.

I was howling, and wishing I had been on the set when they shot that sequence.  I wonder how many takes they went through to get it right. (I think we have that thing on VHS...somewhere.)

A classic.  IMO.

Patricia, no one 'needs' facebook, but as I said, I play Scrabble and Words with Friends with my 10 and 13 year-old nephew and niece, and see all the pictures that are shared as well as jokes and articles.  I don't have many friends on there, and that one that I did say yes to, I unfriended right away.  It can be a great way to keep in touch if you say no to all the requests.  You can't expect people to send everything separately to you in an e-mail.  I've deleted many people, and I shouldn't have said yes to that one request.  Lesson learned.

@ sk8eycat, I have a bad stomach and the jalapenos would kill me, lol.  Your Bloody Mary sounds good though! lol

I joined FlakeBook at the request of a high school friend about 4 years ago.  Almost immediately I 1) started hearing from every classmate who bored me to death 55+ years ago, and 2) the amount of cr*p in my Spam Folder more than tripled.  I dropped out before the first week was over.

My favorite "Bloody Mary" is the type made with beer and Snap-E-Tom.  (Served with deep-fried stuffed jalapenos!)  YUM!

I stay in touch with family/friends by email, so I can't see the point of 'needing' facebook to 'stay in touch' with a sibling when you each have computers. That just seems odd to me.

@ The Flying Atheist, sounds good!  I'm gonna have a beer instead, but we'll have the Bloody Mary's in the a.m.. ;)
