Title: Interested in half an hour's Zoom on New Year's Day?
Post by: k a rl h e nn i ng on December 29, 2020, 11:24:10 AM
Just a thought? Would folks/anyone like to socialize via Zoom for half an hour?

I haven't the requisite hardware (camera, microphone). Else, it sounds interesting. :-\

Unfortunately I shall be at work at from 9AM onwards.  Perhaps a second session circa 8 or 9 PM EST?

I didn't get one until this spring, and only because of changes due to The Virus.

There are versions of the Zoom app for desktops and laptops.

Just out of curiosity, who were all the participants? I would have loved to join in, but for the first meeting I was getting ready for work and for the second one, I was still at work, so there’s no way I could’ve done it. If you hold another on one of these days: Monday-Wednesday, I’m free as these are my off days.

Sorry, I didn’t make it. I was having one of those lazy mornings and, honestly, I don’t really like talking to people at 10 AM. My brain doesn’t start functioning until 1. I had my first cup of coffee and 2. well after 2 PM. :P This is my roundabout way of saying that I’m not a morning person. :D

Thank you very much, SB. Mine had prostate cancer with spine metastasis and died --- unexpectedly --- while asleep probably from cardiac arrest too. He's been with me for 48 of my 48 years. I console myself with the thought that he doesn't suffer any more, as during the last month he experienced excruciating pain and since last August he couldn't even leave the bed because his legs were paralyzed by the metastasis. Now he joined my mother who died in 2018. May both of them rest in the peace of the Lord...

She is doing very well at the moment and is fit enough to have a full course of treatment, yet there are many things she is not able to do for herself, so I have to be ready to go at a moment's notice.

I haven’t conversed with you very much on here, but I’m truly sorry to learn of your mother’s condition. Stay strong for her as she needs now more than ever. You’re a good son --- one that is willing to drop everything for her. Hope everything remains on the upswing for her. All my best.

Thank you for the kind words. This was a heartening message to wake up to this morning.

I know we haven't spoken much, that is my fault for not being so active here. Some years ago I was something of a forum addict, and I have tended since then to keep myself at arm's length, sometimes several arms' lengths. Right now, however, I'm finding that I want to be around as many people as possible. I can't get out very much so I'm gradually expanding my social time on the internet so far as I'm able to fit it in around my responsibilities here at home.

My pleasure and no worries if you don’t communicate on here as much as you'd like to --- there’s so much more to life than this forum (or any forum) and music itself can keep one occupied even further. A cliché, but we should never take our time here for granted. It’s just all too short.

I definitely can't do tomorrow (Weds.) because I'll be at work. Saturday is a possibility but, if we are out, it won't go down well if I say that I need to be back home for a zoom call from my 'Cat Group' (as my wife disparagingly calls it).

In the countryside home of my in-laws we struggle with ants. Their anthill(s) are probably located somewhere beneath the parquet and they are literally legions, invading cupboards, desks and tables, particularly in the kitchen. If anyone knows a proven way to get rid of them, I thank you in advance.

In the countryside home of my in-laws we struggle with ants.

I’ve found out how Zoom works now. On a MacBook laptop you click the link in the web browser and the first time it guides you through downloading and installing the software. On a iPad you install the app from the App Store, start it up and enter the meeting ID and password. The MacBook works better for me; if the iPad is held in landscape orientation to fit in with everyone else’s laptops the camera is on one side so doesn’t give a face on view.

Barring some unforeseen incident, I should be able to do both Zoom chats, although it might be a bit more difficult to attend Wednesday.

I lay a bit low while I was wrapping up the Kerouac commission. But I'm ready to cast another brace of invitations onto the calendar.

Unfortunately I'll be at work on both days. Tomorrow I'm covering for a colleague who is going to a funeral. I hope to join next time. Thanks for organising these Zoom meetings Karl.
