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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Joan, I love those old musicals too, even though they were before my time. I've seen Oklahoma, Kiss Me Kate, Pal Joey and a few others in London through the years. Took my daughter to see Guys and Dolls when she was a teenager. Of the newer ones I enjoyed Hairspray best. Can't stand Lloyd Webber at any price.

Tell Dido, that I have a very special fondness for black cats. "Ebony", of all my cats over the years, was my favorite.

Thanks, Carl and Joan! Dido almost blushed when I told him!

I'm so glad you feel good, Joan! You're right, there's no sense in saying "Why me?" or people would say it when they won the lottery...

Chris, a wonderful photo of spring flowers and bright cat. A very special image.

Melinda, you are in my thoughts this weekend. 

Mother and daughter, here and now,  

remembering the past, remembering the future.

Good morning everyone! It is a great day; I took only two hydrocodone/acetaminophen since the surgery. I have been virtually pain free for two full days and nights and needed no pain relief; there was none. 

Ladies, get those mammograms, catch it early, and the whole process hurt for just a few hours and that was controlled with Rx. Nothing hurt up to the day after surgery. Not anywhere near as much pain as pricking my finger for my blood sugar ... and that does not hurt at all. So, pain is not a reason to put it off. 

Oh, yes, there has been some pain receiving those wonderful hugs my family gives. We learned very quickly I am in a one-arm hug stage of healing. I shall collect "IOU" hugs for later. 

Also, ladies, instead of saying, "Why me?" say "Let's get on with the procedures."

A hundred years ago, when I was a senior in high school I was chosen Lilac Princess for our city's spring Lilac Festival. We had the usual stuff that draws in crowds of shoppers. Our guest star that year, Gordon MacRae, received news he was chosen to star in the film, "Oklahoma." I have a special spot in my heart for the film, and the easier, less complicated times of 1954. Here is to the beauty of life and all that entails. 

Gordon MacRae - OH, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNING from the film Oklahoma...

Loren! Wow! I'm wide awake! Not only are you profound, you are funny profoundly!

Here's a another birthday cake Melinda!

And while we're at it, how about a thousand years of musical evolution in four minutes and twenty-nine seconds?
