I came in at the very end and just caught MissSunnyBunny and Hopingforachange to text. next time. Gotta learn how to use SKYPE I guess.
Yeah. We should think about maybe organising a monthly Skype party. Thinking cap on
eternaloptimism, that's a great idea! Along with tamara68 idea of holding them at different times so that those around the world can find one with a time that works for them.
I had a great time not only seeing and talking to those who called in, but watching the gals here in Florida talk and laugh along. I learned a LOT about group Skype sessions (being more a Google Hangouts guy) and I'm confident it would go much more smoothly if we were to do it again. In fact, I'd like to volunteer for a late May ILIASM Skype PARTY. It's just too much fun, and so very cool to connect the different "voices" here to a face, a person, a real friend!
Its hard for some to find the private time away from their refuser to join in at any one particular session (though the award for "she's in the next room" call goes to wewbwb, who bared his...uh...soul....uh...ok....ass, cracking everyone up), so multiple session at different times should really help.
Thank you to all who were able to join, and had the patience to wait for me to figure out the tech difficulties. I'm used to having a 12 year old grandson helping...lol.
I'll set a date for MAY soon, and set up another ILIASM group call.
I want to thank @obobfl for doing the leg work to plan the trip. It was a pleasure to meet smilin61itsjustusGeekGoddess This weekend was so therapeutic, we laughed so much, we relaxed, enjoyed the beach, ate a lot of yummy seafood and enjoyed each other's company in a risk free, non judgmental way. I look forward to future meet ups!

I definitely enjoyed it! Meeting in person was even better than the Skype call, which was really damn good too. Any time there's another (Skype or in-person) I will do my best to join in. obobfla - the cottages were great, easy short walk to Madeira Beach. Great restaurant around the corner. Really good choice. Thank you for doing the research that helped make it happen. And bballgirl thank you for picking me up at the airport. You really made it easy for this novice traveler to enjoy my first visit to your lovely home state. Good to meet you in person smilin61!! I hope you & itsjustus really will come through to visit me on your way to the Ozarks sometime!
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
petrushka: I was gobsmacked when I heard. This is just not us. In all of 2017 we had 37 murders in the country ..... I think the echo chambers of "social media" have a lot to answer for.

misssunnybunny: petrushka, I thought I read the headline wrong (this stuff happens here, not in NZ). It is frightening the hate that is being spread; it makes my heart hurt.

saarinista: All of us, IMHO, should try to be civil and kind as much as possible in person and online. I actively Tweet (civilly) on political matters and am horrified by the rancor & trolling on both sides of the spectrum, which only inflames unstable people.

misssunnybunny: Congrats! Yay! I don't know how many people see the shout box, I don't think it shows up not he mobile version of the site. Maybe post something in the Off Topic section and more folks may see it?
