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.

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

I still sing the songs sometimes from Sesame Street, ha ha!  My daughter, now 20, really liked Sesame Street, and the ONLY bad thing about my son, almost 18, is that he DIDN'T LIKE SESAME STREET!  I don't know why!!!! lol :)

Pepperidge Farm White Choc. w/Macadamia nut cookies are wonderful, so are the ones at Subway!

My Mom thinks Elmo usurped Grover on Sesame Street! LOL  She has several Grovers people have given her.  Grover is sweet and kind of clueless without being irritating! LOL

Animal drumming to Rush!?!?! My all-time favorite band?!?!!!

I grew up watching Sesame Street and had a ball watching it with my sons when they were young. So many of the same 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!

Yeah I'm a big Muppet fan! Even now! I watched the show when I was little. This is such a fun conversation we are having.
Cookies and Muppets And Sesame Street!
