    Bruce Mowbray grins back at Wol.
    Fefonz Quan: Wol' is it your trinity blouse? :)
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Bertram Jacobus can't believe that wol has not thousands of textures (?!) ;-)
    Wol Euler: an old but much loved outfit
    Wol Euler: my clothes do, bert, but not I myself
    Bertram Jacobus: hmmm - okey :-)
    Bertram Jacobus: hy barcelona :-)

    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, Barcalona.
    Barcalona Rhapsody: hi all
    Fefonz Quan: first time i see you here barcalona, but i guess you've been here before
    Barcalona Rhapsody: sure
    Barcalona Rhapsody: some months
    Barcalona Rhapsody: first as my first avatar
    Barcalona Rhapsody: Adoro
    Fefonz Quan: ok, great.
    Barcalona Rhapsody: but now as my second av in second life
    Bertram Jacobus: next ava will have a name starting wit C barca ? ;-)
    Wol Euler: :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: sure
    Fefonz Quan: :0
    Wol Euler: it's as good a system as any
    Fefonz Quan: )
    Bertram Jacobus: great :-)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: how was NY Bruce ?
    Bruce Mowbray: NYC was a blast - as usual. We had a wonderful time and thanks for asking.
    Barcalona Rhapsody: barcelona was very nice too
    Fefonz Quan: guess it's nice there now, before getting too chilly
    Bruce Mowbray: Great -- I've forgotten. . . You just visited there?
    Barcalona Rhapsody: sorry what was the theme ?
    Fefonz Quan: (->NYC)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: it was a sparkling city
    Fefonz Quan: (sorry to interupt, but there is an Onigoko tail lying alone here... strange)
    Wol Euler: yeh, aphro dropped it
    Wol Euler: instead of detaching it
    Fefonz Quan: at least Aphro didn't loose her pony-tail :)
    Wol Euler: :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: help my av is continue moving my hands like typing
    Barcalona Rhapsody: oh now its over
    Wol Euler: just anohter sign of lag
    Barcalona Rhapsody: sure
    Wol Euler: typing . sometimes stops it
    Barcalona Rhapsody: he
    Bruce Mowbray: Click on "Advanced" and then "stop animating me."
    Bruce Mowbray: You'll have to sit down again, though.
    Fefonz Quan: The ambrela do fit the fish Bruce :)
    Fefonz Quan: yours fit the bee wol :)
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe. an umbrella session :-)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: i dont see it in advanced
    Barcalona Rhapsody: in viewer 2
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe. ty bruce ! :-)
    Fefonz Quan: ty Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: The second item in the menu under "Advanced" (viewer 2).
    Bruce Mowbray: Adoro/Barcelona is using his umbrella as Mary Poppins would.
    Wol Euler: :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: thats when i choose "wear"
    Fefonz Quan: Muhahaha
    Bruce Mowbray: curiouser and curiouser.
    Fefonz Quan: Now it can focus far away voices better into my ear :)
    Wol Euler: oh fef, yours is stuck to your ear
    Fefonz Quan: what did you say? I couldn't hear you well...
    Wol Euler: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: oi :)
    Bertram Jacobus: heyy alfi ! :-)
    Fefonz Quan: hEY aLF
    Alfred Kelberry: woly, of course, has the most fashionable umbrella :)
    Wol Euler: boxboy
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Alfred Kelberry: fefy :)
    Alfred Kelberry: good to see you
    Fefonz Quan: I didn't figure out how to change its colors, not to mention its inclination...
    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, Alfred.
    Alfred Kelberry: bruce, are you in ny already?
    Wol Euler: what is it attached to?
    Wol Euler: take it off, wear it on your right hand
    Bruce Mowbray: Nope. We arrived back in Ohio late Monday night.
    Bertram Jacobus: hello mick ! ... *smile shy* ... ;-)
    Wol Euler: hello mick
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, that was a fast visit. i hope you enjoyed it :)
    Fefonz Quan: Hey Mick
    Alfred Kelberry: oi, micky
    Barcalona Rhapsody: hi mick
    Alfred Kelberry: haha
    Mickorod Renard: Hiya Guys
    Fefonz Quan: you would get wet Mick, need an umbrella?
    Alfred Kelberry: i think mick found his tail :)
    Mickorod Renard: he he
    Alfred Kelberry: the one that was attached to the fountain :)
    Mickorod Renard: I have the brolly from yesterday Bruce ty
    Alfred Kelberry: gamp?
    Bruce Mowbray: ok. Has anyone been following the email discussion regarding Neil Postman?
    Fefonz Quan: forest?
    Mickorod Renard: Hi Barcalona, ,I dont think I have seen you before
    Wol Euler: has anyone posted after bleu?
    Alfred Kelberry: "gamp: colloquial terms for an umbrella"
    Barcalona Rhapsody: me too
    Bertram Jacobus: ty alfred
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, several responses there.
    Wol Euler goes to look
    Fefonz Quan: I did shortly
    Bertram Jacobus: i don't know anything about that at all - sry plz
    Barcalona Rhapsody: well i have to go
    Bruce Mowbray: Nice vid, Fef.
    Bertram Jacobus: hey yaku :-)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: bye all
    Fefonz Quan: Did you want to comment about it Bruce?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye, Adoro/Barcel.
    Bertram Jacobus: oh. bye barca
    Bruce Mowbray: Have a good night!
    Fefonz Quan: Bye Barca
    Wol Euler: hello yaku, bye barca
    Fefonz Quan: Heyaku!
    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, Yaku.
    Alfred Kelberry: woly, i think your umbrella's handle has an eye
    Fefonz Quan: It's the eye of the storm
    Wol Euler: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: um, it looks like a gremlin's eye
    Mickorod Renard: sorry, I was distracted by Manchester united goal
    Fefonz Quan: so jsut don't deep it in the water :)
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Wol Euler: glad to see you have your priorities right, mick.
    Mickorod Renard: Hi Yaku
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Fefonz Quan: goals first, fun second, hmmm...
    Bertram Jacobus: hey qt :-)
    Mickorod Renard: work then pla
    Fefonz Quan: hi Qt
    Qt Core: Hi all
    Mickorod Renard: Hi Qt
    Wol Euler: hello qt
    Wol Euler: it's a good thing Yaku has white shoes on, otherwise we'd be unable to tell him from MIck
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, Qt.
    Mickorod Renard: he he he
    Mickorod Renard: Yaku has the German accent
    Fefonz Quan: and the beard :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Yaku is the one wearing only one shoe.
    Bertram Jacobus: yess :-)
    Mickorod Renard: I am the one with no underpants
    Wol Euler raises an eyebrow.
    Fefonz Quan: Are you excited towards the retreat Wol?
    Bertram Jacobus: may be we don't want to know that mick :o)
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Wol Euler: I'm looking forward to it, yes, Fef.
    Mickorod Renard: ok, panic over, the game is over and man U have won
    Fefonz Quan: noform, no eye, no underpants....
    Wol Euler: a bit of dread mixed in too though, wondering if it'll go well, whether people will like the places I chose.
    Bertram Jacobus: but pants ! ;-)
    Fefonz Quan: sure it will Wol. and remember, it's a retreat, not a 5-star luxury vacation
    Bertram Jacobus: i'm sure we will wol
    Mickorod Renard: Wol, everyone loves you and I am sure they will share in your good taste
    Wol Euler: awwwwwww
    Wol Euler: thank you
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Fefonz Quan: hwo many participants till now?
    Wol Euler: six
    Wol Euler: but we are still taking applicants!
    Bertram Jacobus: oops - now we have already 4 black men here (!) ... ;-)
    Bertram Jacobus: black dressed i mean
    Fefonz Quan: (sigh), i would so much love to be there...
    Wol Euler nods.
    Mickorod Renard: me too
    Lawrence Vyceratops: Participants of what?
    Fefonz Quan: there are 4 from the malta retreat, is that right?
    Lawrence Vyceratops: Sorry... was napping.. haha
    Wol Euler: a RL retreat that I hve organized for a week, lawrence
    Wol Euler: actually, everyone was on the malta retreat.
    Wol Euler: there's nobody new.
    Wol Euler: I hadn't noticed that before.
    Fefonz Quan: you, pema, eos, bert, yaku and?
    Wol Euler: lia
    Fefonz Quan: oh...
    Mickorod Renard: I would certainly say that after going on the Malta retreat and meeting those guardians that I did, it has made me want to do more retreats
    Wol Euler: good
    Wol Euler: me too
    Fefonz Quan: snif...snif...
    Wol Euler: I'm definitely going back to Halifax next summer, and hope that it'll be 2 weeks long
    Wol Euler: O.O
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh my! A host of butterflies!
    Wol Euler wonders what the proper plural noun is. A *froth* of butterflies, perhaps?
    Mickorod Renard: I dont think I was nervous about going on my first PaB retreat, but for sure, the guardians I met wre very heart warming
    Wol Euler: there hasn't been a bad'un yet, Mick; though some have come close (naming no names)
    Mickorod Renard: yikes
    Fefonz Quan: (bad'un?)
    Mickorod Renard: (bad one)
    Fefonz Quan: what, retreats?
    Wol Euler: attendee, I meant.
    Mickorod Renard: I am suprised that these butterflies have rezzed so quickly
    Wol Euler: in reply to mick's observation. Everyone I've met has been great, and just like their SL selves
    Fefonz Quan: the butterfly genome is much shorter Mick, that's why
    Bertram Jacobus: ty bruce :-))
    Mickorod Renard: ty and ty
    Qt Core: ty
    Fefonz Quan: ty, i got one too earlier :)
    Wol Euler: nice, bruce, thanks
    Mickorod Renard: oh yea, how long does a rl butterfly live for in its flying state?
    Bruce Mowbray: sometimes many months -- in order to migrate thousands of miles.
    Mickorod Renard: ohh, thats longer than i imagined
    Fefonz Quan: yes, so many wing flapping
    Bruce Mowbray: In the Western Hemisphere, Monarch butterflies migrate from Canada to Mexico.
    Lawrence Vyceratops: Depends on whether it gets hit by a car or not.
    Bruce Mowbray: I imagine there is something similar to that going on in Europe.
    Bruce Mowbray: (with butterflies, I mean).
    Wol Euler: mmmm
    Wol Euler: nicht daß ich wüsste
    Wol Euler: er, not that I would know of :)
    Mickorod Renard: i guess so, i must admit to being more interested in furry animals
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe wol :-)
    Wol Euler: :)
    Mickorod Renard: I am doing well at the momment, I havnt ran one over in months
    Wol Euler: brb
    Mickorod Renard: but I guess the deer will be out again soon
    Lawrence Vyceratops: Almost hit a huge deer the other night. Very, very scary...
    Alfred Kelberry: ouch
    Alfred Kelberry: *back*
    Lawrence Vyceratops: He was bigger than the car.
    Alfred Kelberry: where is it, lawrence?
    Mickorod Renard: they appear so quickly
    Lawrence Vyceratops: Kansas
    Alfred Kelberry: took a pic?
    Wol Euler: sounds more like a moose
    Lawrence Vyceratops: The speed limit on the road was 65.
    Wol Euler: was it in or near swampland?
    Alfred Kelberry: wol, you drove there too? :)
    Lawrence Vyceratops: Actually, I think there was a bit of swampland near.
    Wol Euler: I've driven where they are.
    Fefonz Quan: yep, I almost hit a deer in Princeton last year
    Wol Euler: they really are huge. They stop trucks.
    Wol Euler: (i.e. hitting one stops a truck)
    arabella Ella: Hiya everyone!
    Wol Euler: hello ara
    Fefonz Quan: hi Ara
    Qt Core: Hi Ara
    Alfred Kelberry: you drive too fast!
    Bertram Jacobus: hey ara ! ... :-)
    Fefonz Quan: you came for the dessert, didn't you?
    Lawrence Vyceratops: Yes, I drive way too fast to worry about cholestorol.
    Alfred Kelberry: oi, ara
    Mickorod Renard: I nearly hit a deer on my motorbike some months back
    Mickorod Renard: it got a car just two yards from me
    Alfred Kelberry: gee, who would have thought it's so common to nearly hit a deer
    Wol Euler: that was lucky
    Fefonz Quan: anyone living in the states Alf :)
    Alfred Kelberry: poor thingies
    Wol Euler: Alf, I've been in four deer hittings
    Alfred Kelberry: not in cali, i assume
    Wol Euler: they are really common, and they try to dart across the road at the last minute.
    Lawrence Vyceratops: I hit a deer once. They are kinda dumb.
    Alfred Kelberry: :(
    Wol Euler: you can see them sometimes standing by the side of the road, when you are hundreds of metres away. They stand there until you come up to them, then panic and try to run across
    Lawrence Vyceratops: But then again, people get hit by cars, so... who knows....
    Qt Core: you all are making me feel too urban, never even saw a deer (while driving)
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: hitting one is much less fun than it sounds :(
    Fefonz Quan: i guess the sound is not that fun either...
    Wol Euler: my cousin Pat swerved to avoid one, on a gravel road, rolled his car and spent six months in a wheelchair
    Qt Core: never even hit a dog or cat or a rat (those are the fashionable animals to hit around here)
    Fefonz Quan: yes Wol, the cruel advice i gto from the insurance agent in the US is: between the deer and the tree - go for the deer)
    Mickorod Renard: the most celubrious that I have hit was a Ratata
    Wol Euler: oh absollutely.
    Fefonz Quan: (ratata? sounds like some carribian rythem)
    Lawrence Vyceratops: In Virginia, they say 100 people hit deer a day.
    Qt Core: oh deer
    arabella Ella: what is a ratata mick?
    Fefonz Quan: yes, my question too
    Lawrence Vyceratops: 200 people killed every year from hitting a deer in the U.S.
    Mickorod Renard: a ratata is like a huge rat /otter type of thing
    arabella Ella: oh i thought it sounds like a rat sort of thing
    arabella Ella: but never heard of it
    Fefonz Quan: even google doesn't know it
    Mickorod Renard: I may have spelt it wrong
    Mickorod Renard: a coypu is another name i think
    Wol Euler always thinks Nutria sounds like an artificial ingredient.
    Fefonz Quan: yes that sounds more like it
    Fefonz Quan: A Nutria from Narnia
    Qt Core: opposite to what the article says we call it Nutria in italy, don't know for the rest of europe
    Lawrence Vyceratops: gotta go, guys.
    arabella Ella: what is Nutria in Italy then Qt?
    Wol Euler: bye larry, take care
    arabella Ella: bye Lawrence
    Mickorod Renard: bye lawrence
    Fefonz Quan: bye Larence, Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: Me too. May all be well and happy.
    Lawrence Vyceratops: Peace out!
    Wol Euler: bye bruce, enjoy the day
    arabella Ella: bye Bruce be happy too :)
    Qt Core: bye Lawrence, Bruce
    Wol Euler: bert, you too?
    Bruce Mowbray: Thank you everyone.
    Bertram Jacobus: ty all for the meeting - have a nice time plz ! ... *wave* ...

    arabella Ella: :)
    arabella Ella: he does doesn't he?
    arabella Ella: especially with his tail
    Alfred Kelberry: yep, big bald guy :)
    arabella Ella: don't tell him i said so though
    arabella Ella: or he may be offended
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, i won't :)
    Qt Core: he need "security" or "staff" written on his shirt to be really intimidating ;-)
    arabella Ella: you know ... hard and tough on the outside and soft like a marshmellow inside
    Alfred Kelberry: ara :)
    Mickorod Renard: I am a mouse in disguise
    arabella Ella: was that naughty Alfie?
    Alfred Kelberry: hehe
    Alfred Kelberry: i think it was true :)
    arabella Ella: oh he is listening ...
    arabella Ella: i thought you may be having a nap Mick
    Mickorod Renard: I thought maltesers were that Ara?
    arabella Ella: LOL
    arabella Ella: they are too Mick
    arabella Ella: i hope everyone here likes maltesers?
    arabella Ella: do you know them?
    Mickorod Renard: eeek, battery low

    Mickorod Renard: chocolate balls
    arabella Ella nods
    Mickorod Renard: with a crunchy inner
    arabella Ella: like Mick ... hard outside like nails, soft inside
    arabella Ella thinks she had better start behaving ... oh silence please!
    Mickorod Renard: I am affraid i am soft everywhere now
    Mickorod Renard: especially in the head
    Alfred Kelberry: maltesers could also be inhabitants of malta :)
    arabella Ella: they are too Alfie
    Qt Core: (i only knew the people, not the chocolate thing)
    arabella Ella: oh i dont think you have them in italy Qt
    arabella Ella: but then of course the italians have lovely sweets often with almonds
    Qt Core: have to go... no, i'n not going sweets hunting ;-)
