    Bruce Mowbray: mine didn't work all the way through the song, though.

    Eden Haiku: Nice tattoo on your back Arabella! What is it?
    arabella Ella: oh sorry give me a min am watching video

    Eden Haiku: Neither do I...No FB for me...
    Mickorod Renard: she doesnt know its there,,i did it with a pen one day when she was asleep
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Bruce Mowbray: I discontinued my accoubnt several months ago.
    Zen Arado: can sometimes get them on Youtube too
    Eden Haiku: I lasted only 4 days on Facebook and hated it.
    adoro Rhapsody: when u look for "ecolution Groningen" u see a new ship totaly on solar and wind and water energy
    arabella Ella: lovely video thanks to whoever pointed to it :)
    arabella Ella: apologies Eden
    adoro Rhapsody: its from our first dutch astronaut
    Eden Haiku: Np
    arabella Ella: I think Mick answered your question right?
    adoro Rhapsody: wubbo Ockels
    Mickorod Renard: you need at least one friend to be on facebook
    Eden Haiku: He did :)))
    arabella Ella giggles
    Mickorod Renard: it was permanent ink though
    arabella Ella: well I love facebook and some of my SL friends are my friends there too :)
    Agatha Macbeth: That sounds like a SL name
    Zen Arado: I have a love/hate relationship with FB
    Eden Haiku: Well a friend of mine created my account at my place and then I ended up being friends with people I'm avoiding at book parties...IT was pretty annoying...
    Agatha Macbeth: :P
    Zen Arado: have gone off Twitter atm
    Eden Haiku: I adore Twitter though. But I don't use my RL identity. Makes things much easier :)
    Zen Arado: too many people want to be my spiritual advisor
    Zen Arado: :)
    arabella Ella: i've never tried Twitter but I get the feeling it needs a lot more time than FB
    Mickorod Renard: thats a good idea,,create a facebook account under the name of someone you dont like,,then be really horrid to everyone that contacts you
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    arabella Ella: I know lots of ppl who have FB accounts in other fake names or using their SL names
    adoro Rhapsody: :-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Is it true they don't let you use avatar pictures on your profile?
    Zen Arado: don't think so
    arabella Ella: lots of people have avatar pictures on their profile on FB
    Eden Haiku: That would be a fun experience Mick...grinning devilishly...
    Zen Arado: or blanks
    arabella Ella: especially those who are members of groups on FB related to SL
    adoro Rhapsody: or cartoons
    Agatha Macbeth: I thought they cleared them all off or something
    arabella Ella: no
    arabella Ella: you could have a picture of anything you wish (as long as it does not offend others I guess)
    Mickorod Renard: that would rule out a picture of myself then
    Agatha Macbeth: Hee
    adoro Rhapsody: hahah
    arabella Ella: LOL
    Zen Arado: I have 2 pab friends on Facebook
    adoro Rhapsody: wow
    Zen Arado: we should have a page there
    arabella Ella: yes Zen let me know if you set one up
    arabella Ella: and please feel free to link to me on FB Zen
    Zen Arado: hoped someone else would :)
    arabella Ella: (but not as arabella!)
    arabella Ella: LOL
    Zen Arado: I'll send you my FB name
    arabella Ella: i think i have three or four PaB friends there
    Zen Arado: well you aren't a mutual friend with these
    Zen Arado: strange
    Mickorod Renard: my take on it is thatI dont really like contact on the internet,,its made people become less concerned with making the effort to stay in touch personally
    Zen Arado: and you know them vry well
    arabella Ella: strange things happen :)
    Zen Arado: it can work the other way too Mick
    Mickorod Renard: you cant beat just tapping on the door of an old friend in person
    Eden Haiku: Just checked my Twitter timeline on iPad . Some woman from Bangolore juste posted a picture of as star cat who gave birth to a kitten in her courtyard. She told me yesterday they were sleeping in her garage and now she is sending the pic. I love that kind of silly anecdotes, especailly about cats.
    Zen Arado: but you have a point Mick
    Bruce Mowbray: Pamala Clift's Think Tank (tomorrow morning at 8 slt) will discuss Mick's point.
    Mickorod Renard: yes?
    Bruce Mowbray: about communication in SL --
    Bruce Mowbray: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5jNpJC6yG8
    Bruce Mowbray: oops. sorry.
    Eden Haiku: Tapping on the door of an old friend in person has its own timeless charm Mick...True :)
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Unfortunately (perhaps) my nearest friend lives 27 miles away.
    arabella Ella: but ... with FB you can easily say Happy Birthday to old friends across the ocean in real time at no cost
    Mickorod Renard: even the phone is becoming defunct due to the email
    Eden Haiku: With Twitter and email and Skype also...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i think more through skype :)
    Mickorod Renard: thanks Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: yw, Mick. That's the LM for Pamala's group -- You might enjoy it, if you've not been there before.
    Eden Haiku: Cant's see the video. Must be a "Flash" one...
    Mickorod Renard: well,,i become frustrated that my own family choose to send me emails instead of picking the phone up to talk
    adoro Rhapsody: ok
    Mickorod Renard: I dont open their mails
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Eden Haiku: ;))
    Eden Haiku: You are a resistant Mick!
    Mickorod Renard: are you a regular at these events Bruce?
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, pretty regular --- I've been here for three or four sessions so far today.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i also go there regularly
    Zen Arado: another addict!
    Mickorod Renard: sorry, i meant the place u sent the lm for
    Bruce Mowbray: (actually, I'm just keeping an eye on Yaku - making sure he behaves).
    Mickorod Renard: you do too Yaku?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, of course, it´s in voice :P
    Yakuzza Lethecus: lol
    Mickorod Renard: voice? oh noooo
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh yes -- I go to Pamala's group every other week (it meets only once every two weeks).
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, Pam's group is in voice.
    Mickorod Renard: sounds fun
    Zen Arado: what is the group so I can join?
    arabella Ella: could you say more about it Bruce please?
    Bruce Mowbray: Roadside Philosophers.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, she sounds fun :)
    Agatha Macbeth: You have the ption to use txt or notecard too
    Agatha Macbeth: o
    Mickorod Renard: although i am not that fond of voice on sl,,i have done it,,i am a bit self concious
    Zen Arado: can't find it :(
    Bruce Mowbray: If you click on my profile and look at my groups, you will find Roadside Philosophers -- and your can join the group there.
    arabella Ella: could you give me the name of the group Bruce please?
    Bruce Mowbray: Roadside Philosophers
    Yakuzza Lethecus: roadside philosophers
    Bruce Mowbray: Yaku is also a member.

    arabella Ella: doubtful
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    arabella Ella: regretfully
    Bruce Mowbray: She has already told every in the group this so I am not breaking confidence -- but. . .
    Bruce Mowbray: during the past week she's had a major change in her relationship with her SL partner, Yossel.
    Mickorod Renard: wherabouts are you Eden?,,roughly,,like on what continent?
    Bruce Mowbray: He was hospitalized for several days and couldn't comunicate with her...
    Eden Haiku: Asking us not to go there and claim our 10 L hey Bruce ?
    Bruce Mowbray: and she had to go through his son to get to him...
    Bruce Mowbray: She will no doubt say something of that tomorrow.
    Zen Arado: ok
    arabella Ella: how stressful it must have been
    arabella Ella: i can imagine her worry
    Zen Arado: was only joking anyway
    Eden Haiku: Oh, I live in Montreal, Quebec, That's in North America but I spend the summer in a little laurentian village.
    Bruce Mowbray: It was very stressful indeed...

    arabella Ella smiles
    Zen Arado: nice thing to say
    Zen Arado: :)
    Zen Arado: I better go too
    Zen Arado: love to you all too
    arabella Ella: ah love makes the world go round, love is a many splendoured thing, love hurts
    Zen Arado: true
    Eden Haiku: Love, love love, all you need is love!!!
    Zen Arado: all of the above
    arabella Ella nods
    arabella Ella: and the slogan comes to mind 'Make Love not War!'
    Zen Arado: romantic love anyway
    arabella Ella: yes
    Eden Haiku: Great message!
    Zen Arado: but being hurt is good for us in a funny kind of way
    arabella Ella: do you really think so?
    Zen Arado: he said philosophically :)
    Eden Haiku: I disagree.
    Zen Arado: trying to convince myself
    arabella Ella: ah i thought so
    Zen Arado: :)
    Eden Haiku: Hurt just happens and we have to accept it, I guess that's what you mean Zen...
    arabella Ella: cos i guess we all admit that some hurts are so tough they are ... ouch ... i dunno
    Zen Arado: but it kind of 'tenderizes' us
    Eden Haiku: Breaking our hearts, they become more open...Maybe...Some people close off though.
    Zen Arado: breaks through our tough self protection
    Zen Arado: yes Eden
    arabella Ella: thing is if we knew hurt tenderised all people then we would know how to make callous people more tender prhaps?
    Zen Arado: but we have a choice - to close up or open up
    Eden Haiku: Ah, that would be useful to know how to do that Ara...
    Zen Arado: yes Ara
    arabella Ella: then there is also ... some of us repeat the same mistakes over and over
    arabella Ella: others as Eden said become more sceptical
    arabella Ella: or distrustful
    Zen Arado: takes a long time to learn
    arabella Ella: or more open
    Zen Arado: sometimes think gives us the same lesson over and over again until we learn it
    Zen Arado: lif*
    Zen Arado: life
    Eden Haiku: Yes, we repeat oy you close off. But we know opening up, letting go of our defense mechanism is the way to go...
    arabella Ella nods but it is not easy
    Zen Arado: synchronicity - starting to accept that Eden
    Eden Haiku: Not easy no.
    arabella Ella: fraid i must go now bye for now!
    arabella Ella: great chat this last bit thanks!
    Eden Haiku: Bye Ara, nice to see you :)))
    Zen Arado: bye Ara
    Zen Arado: nice talking to you
    Zen Arado: I was skeptical about that you remember Eden
    Eden Haiku: About?
    Zen Arado: synchronicity
    Eden Haiku: Oh, synchronicity, I remember now...
    Zen Arado: yes
    Eden Haiku: And?
    Zen Arado: the more you open to life - become one with the flow of it - the more things become synchronous
    Zen Arado: I think
    Zen Arado: things happen for you
    Eden Haiku: Yes, that's true.
    Eden Haiku: Glad to know you let that flow of energies into your heart Zen :)
    Zen Arado: not by you controlling
    Zen Arado: trying to anyway
    Zen Arado: or dropping control or something
    Eden Haiku: Did your health crisis recently, did you now see it as an opportunity to open up to new energies?
    Zen Arado: yes - it was a kind of awakening for me
    Eden Haiku: Like the inner healer or something like that?
    Eden Haiku: Oh, tell me more Zen :)
    Zen Arado: just relaxing into the experience
    Zen Arado: allowing people to do things for me
    Zen Arado: and accepting things I didn't like
    Zen Arado: better than a Zen retreat
    Zen Arado: :)
    Eden Haiku: smiles
    Eden Haiku: Yes, a lot of sound lesson in that >bad" experience it seems :)
    Zen Arado: it certainly made me feel a lot better in many ways
    Zen Arado: yes :)
    Zen Arado: suffering is a shortcut to awakening I believe
    Eden Haiku: Wonderful. And it made you think about death too (I saw that in a log). Always a good thing to think about our mortality.
    Eden Haiku: Although I don't like to think about it :)
    Zen Arado: ha ha - we were discussing how anyone would know if we died
    Zen Arado: so we could have an SL funeral
    Zen Arado: I onlu have one SL RL friend
    Zen Arado: and they might not tell her
    Zen Arado: she doesn'tlive near me
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I remember reading that. Scary and funny at the same time.
    Zen Arado: amazed you read it :)
    Zen Arado: any of us could die at any time - you have to face it
    Zen Arado: and some of us are getting old :)
    Eden Haiku: Just asked my boyfriend if he knows how to launch SL so he could tell you if I die suddenly. He turns around (he's making effplant for dinner) and says: "We will talk about it in 30-40 years..."
    Eden Haiku: *eggplant
    Eden Haiku: I will die very very old according to his plans :))
    Zen Arado: yes - typical attitude
    Zen Arado: put off thinking about it
    Zen Arado: if you realize you have no self there isn't anything TO die
    Zen Arado: I do a death meditation sometimes
    Zen Arado: I told you before I think
    Eden Haiku: I talked about death with my mother a few months before she passed away, She was not sick but she knew her heart condition was getting worse...She wasn't afraid.
    Zen Arado: my mother became very calm too
    Zen Arado: surprised me
    Eden Haiku: A death meditation, no, that's interesting.
    Zen Arado: very simple - you just say - death is certain, only the time of death is uncertain, so what should I do?
    Zen Arado: and what you do is enjoy life in the present moment as best you can ?
    Eden Haiku: Oh yes, I remember now, this sentence. I will tell it to myself now :)
    Zen Arado: so it is a happy thing really
    Eden Haiku: Enjoying this caht with you by the pool on a Friday afternnon (evening for you ) :))
    Zen Arado: and it helps you face it when it comes
    Eden Haiku: *chat
    Zen Arado: me too
    Zen Arado: but I guess I better go
    Zen Arado: really this time :)
    Zen Arado: I have to get to bed
    Eden Haiku: It was really nice talking with you Zen! have a great week end!
    Zen Arado: you too Eden :)
    Eden Haiku: Sweet dreams!
    Zen Arado: bye
    Eden Haiku: Good night dear!
