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

sk8eycat I have not seen that movie before. I like Sammy's dancing and singing. He is wiry and agile. Thanks.

I sometimes wonder if they don't put everything online.......

Patricia, I thought I did a pretty thorough search for Kelly dance scenes, but didn't find ones in which he shone. Singin' in the Rain is a favorite of mine as well. I looked again and still don't find a good video. The search is on!

Riverdance hooked me, & then Lord of the Dance addicted me. I never would have paid attention to Irish dancing at all if it wasn't for this. My daughter was thrilled to bits when Riverdance was on tour & stopped for a meal at the McDonald's she was working at, & she only knew of them because of me.

Singin' in the Rain is my favorite of Gene Kelly, but I really like watching a lot of them.....Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Ann Miller, Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds, June Allyson, Rita Hayworth........

Patricia, I bet you have a lot of dvd's; what is your favorite of Flatley? I couldn't find a piece I liked by Kelly, he was doing more acting than dancing. Do you have a favorite of his?
Comment by Patricia on August 31, 2013 at 7:15pm

I have the dvd's.

Carl, Nicholas Brothers in Stormy Weather are great! Such energy!  I wonder what condition their legs and joints were in as they got older? Can't even imagine doing such things with my legs at any time.

Comment by Patricia on August 31, 2013 at 6:06pm

I'm a Michael Flatley & Gene Kelly fan, but I think most ''dancing'' now is acrobatics, not dance. I never did think M. Jackson was that great....dancer or otherwise, after he got older.
