Thought we could all meet in one of the chat rooms and get to know each other.  How about Friday evening at 8 pm?  If this doesn't work for you, suggest a time that would be good for your schedule.  Anyone want to do this?

That's a cool idea Carole. I usually have issues with the chat app on my computer but if I can get it to load I'm game for a live discussion. If it works out well it could end up being a monthly thing.

Friday 8 pm Eastern time - Lets meet in Lounge A.  The new member room usually has folks in it, so we can use one of the others.

7 Central

6 Mountain

5 Pacific

Not to worry Carol K, we might do this on a regular basis if we have enough fun.

Thanks for the reminder would've forgotten without it. If I can't get into the chat I'll post in here to let you know.

Sorry I can't get into chat from my phone and my internet on the computers is running with the speed of a lobotomized cock roach. My wifi is down too so I'm using data to type this.

Oh, well, I waited 20 minutes.  Maybe you aren't the only one having trouble.  Barb is online and I pm'd her, but no show.  I guess the time wasn't a good one.  If anyone wants to try again over the weekend, let us know what time is good for you.  I can be there just about anytime this weekend.

I'm always connected, I have one thing that runs 24/7 and cable internet so I'm technically always online. I may not actually be here though. :)

Hope a few people were able to chat today. My DH let me go Easter shopping at that time and I couldn't pass it up. (I didn't want to be shopping for Easter at WalMart at midnight tonight!!! Ugh!)

Let me know if you set up another time. cool

It didn't register with me when I set the time for Friday that it was Good Friday and this is Easter weekend.  Duh, (smacks head)! 

Chris and I had a great chat, getting to know each other a little.  So, I think we should try again.  I propose next Friday night, maybe a little later would help.  So how is Friday (yikes the 13th!) at 9 Eastern, 8 Central, 7Mountain and 6 Pacific?  Lounge A

I was making hot cross buns for the first time. I'm a baking fool when it comes to cakes and cookies but I don't have much experience with yeast so it took me awhile. They're out of the oven and look good, we'll have to wait to see if they taste like anything. I got kinda wrapped up in that and forgot. I swear I have the memory of a goldfish.

I'm up for any time really.

It was fun chatting with Carole and hopefully we'll be able to get a larger group together the next time.

I am just seeing this now.   It would have been fun, but as noted it was a sort of holiday.   I had both my kids home from college, and I miss them like crazy so when they are home I just take any spare minutes they are willing to hang out with me.  hahah.

Generally speaking I am available most nights, though come to think of it I am busy next week taking 55 Alive which is a class for old people.   I'll get a disccount on my car insurance!
