    The Guardian for this meeting was stevenaia Michinaga. The comments are by stevenaia Michinaga.

    Note to Calvino... I love the spellcheck and use it lightly and love even more that the format controls no longer "follow" you down the page.  But I can't figure out where the "Indent" controls are located.

    stevenaia Michinaga: hello

    Much time passed between my hello and the time Ewan and Dream responded, it could have been the lag everyone is talking about.

    New year conversation started the evening

    Ewan Bonham: Hello Steve.
    stevenaia Michinaga: evening Ewan
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Dream
    Dream Wrexan: hello
    stevenaia Michinaga: I may have to leave shortly as I have some relatives over for the holiday
    stevenaia Michinaga: but I claimed the log so feel free to continue after
    Ewan Bonham: Oh, OK
    Dream Wrexan: L'shanah tovah
    stevenaia Michinaga: smiles
    Dream Wrexan: I find it interesting that different cultures celebrate the new year not only in different ways, but also at different times
    Dream Wrexan: There's something magical about starting over.
    stevenaia Michinaga: and for different reasons, I am surprised that everyone agrees what a rear is
    stevenaia Michinaga: Year is
    Dream Wrexan: knew that :-)
    Dream Wrexan: hehe
    stevenaia Michinaga: once around the sun
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Dream Wrexan: or the moon
    stevenaia Michinaga: even by counting the moon phases
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    Dream Wrexan: and even for western cultures, there are many different rituals
    Dream Wrexan: we used to bury coins in the snow before midnight and retrieve them after midnight
    Dream Wrexan: to ensure prosperity in the coming year
    stevenaia Michinaga: new year offers a time to reflect on the past and future, which culture does that Dream?
    Dream Wrexan: I'm guessing all cultures
    Dream Wrexan: at least those I'm familiar with
    Dream Wrexan: oh - you mean the coins
    Dream Wrexan: lol
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods... smiles
    Dream Wrexan: that is my Polish ancestry6
    Dream Wrexan: and there were plenty more rituals along with that
    Dream Wrexan: from eating herring and rye bread to ensuring that a male was the first to enter the house in the new year
    stevenaia Michinaga: love pickled herring
    Dream Wrexan: I prefer the creamed
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    stevenaia Michinaga: and you Ewan?
    Dream Wrexan: I hated it when a child, though... but they made me gag down at least one bite
    Dream Wrexan: how interesting - to think of where customs start
    Dream Wrexan: and how they end up
    Ewan Bonham: Well, i am intrigued with both the concept of a new year and its freshness...as well as forgiveness that goes with it..
    Ewan Bonham: It's like wiping a preverbal slate clean..
    Dream Wrexan: forgiveness - yes!
    Dream Wrexan: I believe that is why New Years is so special...
    Dream Wrexan: even new moon can be special
    Dream Wrexan: I've done many new moon rituals to put forth new energy
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, and it also wipes a mind clean
    Dream Wrexan: I wish more cultures devoted effort to forgiveness
    Dream Wrexan: It is such an important concept
    Dream Wrexan: Without forgiveness, we carry forth old baggage
    Dream Wrexan: and who needs that in a New Year?
    Ewan Bonham: I is the only way to have energy to move on..
    Dream Wrexan: yes, precisely
    Dream Wrexan: We are often so caught up in being 'right' that we forget to be happy
    Ewan Bonham: A bit of ACIM there..
    Dream Wrexan: and for me happiness comes from relief of the burdens that holding a grudge can bring
    Dream Wrexan: oops... is it showing? :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: ACIM?
    Ewan Bonham: Yes...
    stevenaia Michinaga: what is that?
    Ewan Bonham: Steve, it is A Course in Miracles
    stevenaia Michinaga: awww, sorry
    Dream Wrexan: it's very much about forgiveness
    Ewan Bonham: And i doing that, letting Love come forth
    Ewan Bonham: making way for new changes and evolvement
    Dream Wrexan: yes, the energy that Stevenaia was mentioning
    Dream Wrexan: and energy to evolve
    stevenaia Michinaga: the energy to reflect
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, often beyond words..
    Dream Wrexan: reflection is so critical to evolution
    Dream Wrexan: folks so often rush through life without it
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'm just trying to move...
    stevenaia Michinaga: I find as I get older I move at a more leisurely pace
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Aphrodite
    Dream Wrexan: hi, Aphrodite
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi
    Dream Wrexan: We've been talking about new beginnings
    Ewan Bonham: Hi Aphro

    Viewer issues intervene

    Aphrodite Macbain: Is any one else here having lag problems?
    Dream Wrexan: I was earlier - like you, I couldn't move
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'd like a new computer
    Aphrodite Macbain: computer - nice new beginning
    stevenaia Michinaga: freezing also give you time to reflect
    Dream Wrexan: :-)
    Dream Wrexan: good point, steve
    Ewan Bonham: All the time..
    Aphrodite Macbain: Can you help me with something else too?
    Aphrodite Macbain: It gives me time to grind my teeth
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, sometimes our fingers kinda mov out of habit..
    Dream Wrexan: what help, Aph?
    Aphrodite Macbain: I have a script warning/error message that constantly runs
    Aphrodite Macbain: over and over again
    Dream Wrexan: unfortunately, I gave up coding years ago
    stevenaia Michinaga: have you tried Phoenix Viewer
    Ewan Bonham: Technology...gotta love it..
    Dream Wrexan: I might be able to solve it COBOL
    Dream Wrexan: :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: It says I haven't sent a Permission_Trigger-Animation permission
    stevenaia Michinaga: way over my head
    Aphrodite Macbain: I gave Bruce mug o coffe today and then it started
    Ewan Bonham: that what you get for giving something to Bruce..
    Aphrodite Macbain: I've been searching in Wikie but nothing
    Dream Wrexan: ah
    Dream Wrexan: maybe it's the script in the mug
    Ewan Bonham: Next thing youknow, you'll have a fish swimming around your head..
    Dream Wrexan: there's a mug behind you
    stevenaia Michinaga: is it the mug on the ground over there
    Dream Wrexan: LOL, Ewan!!
    Aphrodite Macbain: Oh whee is i. Perhaps ifI take it it will STOP!
    Dream Wrexan: I wonder if you could 'block' it
    Aphrodite Macbain: well I've taken it......
    Dream Wrexan: try remove/block - then block it by name
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh It's gone now
