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.

Always enjoy coming here to visit with all of you!

You all are the best.

Hey sk8eycat. This is a recipe she came up with herself over the years. It has everything in it I like. Am going to try it this weekend when I'm off.

Okay, need large glass dish. I am thinking maybe a 3x9. Get your favorite marinara sauce. Two flattened chicken breasts per person. You know, paillared, esacloped, really flat she said. Bread the chicken and brown off. Since this is kinda semi-Italian like, I am going to use breadcrumbs. She said to place a little sauce in the dish, and place half the chicken breasts in.

Now, the fun part. Place stuff. Your imagination can run wild. Ms. Lathrop says she places a slice of ham and swiss cheese on each. Yummo! I'm also thinking of putting on some artichoke hearts, mushrooms, grilled onions, (mouth is watering now), fresh cracked pepper, parmigiano reggiano, some good olive oil. Top with second chicken breast, cover with the mariana sauce and more cheese, place in 350 oven for 15-20 min.

Like she said, you can really do it anyway you want. A meat sauce would be great, or a vodka sauce. Fresh herbs always a fantastic touch. Sub a fresh, farmers sausage instead of ham, or bacon or proscuitto. Maybe some lightly fried scallions, broccoli would be great.

Serve over angel hair pasta, or maybe polenta. Nice antipasto with kalamata, fresh moz, sliced tomatoes drizzled with EVOO and chiffonade of basil, good baquette, nice glass red wine, dry like a Cabernet Sauvignon (goes well with tomato sauces for me) and enjoy.

Me and my sister are planning to try it this weekend. Yumm yum nom nom nom.

Anyway, if you try, let me know what you think. I'll do the same. Peace, Tony.

Loads of good stuff from so many people. Thanks to all. Love the F.U. and the thesaurus cat.

I don't know about anyone else here, but I have to say that the typing class I had my junior year in high school was one of the most valuable and useful classes I ever could have taken.  Who would have thought decades ago that we all would be typing our lives away on laptops and computers!
