    Dash Earthboy: there has been some remodeling here in the last few hours
    Dash Earthboy: here at PaB
    stevenaia Michinaga: I jsut rolled out the grass
    Dash Earthboy: wow
    Dash Earthboy: hey Rhi
    stevenaia Michinaga: turned off the fountain
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Rhi, are you ambulatory tonight?
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: and I was all ready to nudge you over here
    Rhiannon Dragoone: awwww. ty
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Dash Earthboy: i'm having to keep a weather eye on local radar in RL
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Dash
    Dash Earthboy: hoping I stay connected :)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, oh, tornados?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, lightening storms
    Dash Earthboy: hey Rhi :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: thanks for joining us, although I ahve no agenda tonight there was a nice story circulations that I would be happy to share
    Dash Earthboy: the weather service says severe lightening storms with up to 2 inch hail and up to 70 mph wind gusts
    stevenaia Michinaga: makes for a nice week long evening theme of sorts
    stevenaia Michinaga: yikes and you still ahve internet?
    Dash Earthboy: had more hail a couple hours ago than i've seen in 10 years here
    Dash Earthboy: still have my slow DSL yep
    Dash Earthboy: at least i'm not on satellite like Bruce :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, I know people who ahve severly limited file tranfer with satellite
    stevenaia Michinaga: ....
    stevenaia Michinaga: a story from a friend of Eos
    stevenaia Michinaga: A friend of mine sent a quote from a young Tibetan Buddhist who's going into a long retreat: "Keep this teaching at the heart of your practice. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, pause from time to time and relax your mind. You don't have to change anything about your experience. You can let thoughts and feelings come and go freely, and leave your senses wide open. Make friends with your experience and see if you can notice the spacious awareness that is with you all the time. Everything you ever wanted is right here in this present moment of awareness."
    Dash Earthboy: i was in agreement until the last sentence
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I have DSL now, and it's really fast compared to satellite, which I was on
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And more reliable too
    Dash Earthboy: ur right Rhi
    stevenaia Michinaga: isn;t tonight the full moon in the other hemisphere
    Dash Earthboy: yes
    Rhiannon Dragoone: stevie hat was really good advice from the Tibetan Buddhist
    stevenaia Michinaga: I mean an eclispe
    Dash Earthboy: and they had a full lunar eclipse
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And sometimes, you need to dissociate in order to experience things more clearly
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I'm also experimenting with Firestorm; better graphics and colors but has some annoying features
    stevenaia Michinaga: I can't say if it is or isn;t as I am not a buddist
    stevenaia Michinaga: what is firestorm?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: well, you don't hae to be in order to benefit from relaxation and trance techniques
    stevenaia Michinaga: another viewer
    Rhiannon Dragoone: It's like Phoenix on steroids
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Made by the same people
    stevenaia Michinaga: :) does it run on a mac?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I don't know; it's in beta, but they're planning for a Mac vversion anyway; worth checking it out
    stevenaia Michinaga: brb, my dryer is speaking to me....
    Rhiannon Dragoone: It's graphics are great, and when people rez, they are less grey for less time
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hb
    Dash Earthboy: sounds like a nice browser Rhi
    Rhiannon Dragoone: It has some annoying features, though, like you crash more and it goes black sometimes, when things change
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And I have to have my screen move controls on, to click on walk, but then I can use my arrows on my key board, which is nice
    Dash Earthboy: since my computer resources are already "insufficient" for SL standards, I'm trying to stay as basic as possible in the graphics features dept
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And its more like Vieer 2
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Dash, yeah, I did that when I was stuck with satillite; had to have things on low


    Rhiannon Dragoone: Then if there wer too many avi's, like twelve or more, some would only come in like cartoons
    Dash Earthboy: and particles can wreak havoc
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, i still have particles on low
    Rhiannon Dragoone: My feet always have the right skin tone on this viewer though
    Dash Earthboy: i'm grateful for the rain we're having
    Dash Earthboy: it just should be gentler to nourish the crops
    Dash Earthboy: not beat them down
    Dash Earthboy: most of the earlier hail was the size of blueberries
    Dash Earthboy: some pea size too
    Rhiannon Dragoone: rain is always good for crops
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I always think of the benefits of rain when it gets annoying
    Dash Earthboy: and a noteworthy amount half the size of a golf ball
    Dash Earthboy: first stime i ever saw the ground after a hailstorm here look like it was blanketed in snow
    Rhiannon Dragoone: When I was a little girl, I visited relatives who had a hail storm; first I had seen of it, i yelled, "It's rainiing popcorn" They've never let me forget that. lol
    stevenaia Michinaga: back
    Rhiannon Dragoone: wb Steve
    Dash Earthboy: yah it does look like popcorn somewhat
    Dash Earthboy: wb stev
    stevenaia Michinaga: laundy gave me a strange sence of reincarnation, like laundry goes through this same circle
    Dash Earthboy: heheh
    Dash Earthboy: i think it's more like a bath cycle
    stevenaia Michinaga: karma wears on clothes
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: or de ja vu--that strange feeling of having done this before. lol
    Dash Earthboy: you take one every Saturday whether you need to or not :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: for em yes, for my clothes, even more so
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I am on a vacation, so I haven't worn clothes for two days irl; it's a way to minimize laundry
    Dash Earthboy: i hear ya :)
    Dash Earthboy: both
    stevenaia Michinaga: you are on a clothesless vacation?
    Dash Earthboy: not me
    Rhiannon Dragoone: steve, yes! The best kind
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: don;t forget to post your vacation pics
    Dash Earthboy: heheh
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I used to associate being naked with work, now with being away from work
    Dash Earthboy: yah
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, actually, I need to log now; only came for about a half hour
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I find it nice here--cuz of the people
    Dash Earthboy: agreed
    stevenaia Michinaga: thanks for the visit, haven;t seen you in a while either
    Rhiannon Dragoone: But I have to resist temptation; have to cook dinner for Rosalyn and me.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, steve. we have to fix that.

    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, steve, i'm sorry; but i do have informal ones
    stevenaia Michinaga: poof
    Dash Earthboy: i'm doing good staying connected so long
    Dash Earthboy: a couple weekends back I was without DSL for a day from Sat PM to Sun PM
    stevenaia Michinaga: I see you are in Rhi's philosophy group, did you cross PaB through that group?
    stevenaia Michinaga: or the other way around
    Dash Earthboy: no
    Dash Earthboy: Bruce invited me to PaB at first
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Dash Earthboy: from a morning meditation group
    Dash Earthboy: he would come here after that 20 min solace
    Dash Earthboy: most times i find the company here just as spiritually invigorating


    Dash Earthboy: if it wasn't for the expected hail i'd have my car out from under the tree cover for a good bath...i haven't done car washes proper in 12 years
    Dash Earthboy: i just go out in light rains or after heavy rains with a rag and wipe it down
    Dash Earthboy: no chemicals except what is washed out of the air :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods, I know people who do that and get strange looks
    stevenaia Michinaga: dificult to wax after
    Dash Earthboy: haven't waxed either
    stevenaia Michinaga: it dos keep the life in the paint
    Dash Earthboy: true
    Dash Earthboy: but until my son keeps his commitment to help me re-paint a fender as he promised two years ago, i'm just letting the whole thing go
    Dash Earthboy: i wipe it down
    Dash Earthboy: but the fender dent is over 5 years old and doesn't seem to be getting any rustier than it was
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Dash Earthboy: kinda like me and my scars :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: at tome point cars just don;t seem to mind or need tending too like when they were new
    stevenaia Michinaga: wonders if the SL moon with be ecllipsed
    Dash Earthboy: that SL eclipse was suggested at the 1 PM mtg
    stevenaia Michinaga: it;s a full moon now, rising
    stevenaia Michinaga: looking to the east
    Dash Earthboy: of course, I have to be in a terrible storm for such an event in RL
