     The Guardian for this meeting was Aphrodite Macbain. The comments are by Aphrodite Macbain.

    apologies for the strange text that occasionally appears- I have no idea how that happened

    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi FC
    FcSeeker Resident: Hello Aphrodite
    Aphrodite Macbain: How are you today?
    FcSeeker Resident: smiles
    FcSeeker Resident: still listening :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: what are you listening to?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Nice to see you're a friend of Rhi
    FcSeeker Resident: now I'm listening to you :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'm not saying much
    FcSeeker Resident: smiles
    Aphrodite Macbain: Did you go to the philosophy discussion with Rhi?
    FcSeeker Resident: you still tell much to me :)
    FcSeeker Resident: I sadly have not had time to do that
    Aphrodite Macbain: really?
    Aphrodite Macbain: to do what, talk to me?
    FcSeeker Resident: to go to such philosophy event
    Aphrodite Macbain: I was interested to see what was discussed
    FcSeeker Resident: sure would like to talk with you also
    FcSeeker Resident: well...you've read my profile ?
    FcSeeker Resident: Hello Qt
    Qt Core: Hi all!
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Qt. GTSY
    Aphrodite Macbain: Buogiorno
    Aphrodite Macbain: Buongiorno
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bongiourno
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-(
    Qt Core: buongiorno a te (even if it is more buonasera, now )
    Aphrodite Macbain: grazie, e buonasera
    Aphrodite Macbain: How is your Satruday going?
    Aphrodite Macbain: I've been to the farmers market in my neighbourhood and have come back with lovely fresh veggies, cheese and strawberries
    Aphrodite Macbain: yum

    Qt Core: i had a great fish meal near garda lake (and it was even cheap)
    FcSeeker Resident: very yummy
    Aphrodite Macbain: what kind of fish?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Garda lake is a very big lake isn't it?
    Qt Core: if i remember my geography right the biggest in <country-region w:st="on">italy</country-region>
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bigger than <place w:st="on"><placetype w:st="on">Lake</placetype> <placename w:st="on">Como</placename></place>?
    Qt Core: from squid ink rice to grilled salmon
    Aphrodite Macbain: yum! Salmon from the ocean?
    Aphrodite Macbain: or the lake?
    Qt Core: i hope (no salmon in <place w:st="on"><country-region w:st="on">italy</country-region></place> lakes)
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-) I guess salmon is an ocean fish that spawns in the rivers and streams of the mainland
    Aphrodite Macbain: In Canada bears love them!
    FcSeeker Resident: as far as I know salmon cannot live in any lake...
    Qt Core: yes, but oceans so no salmon in the <place w:st="on">Mediterranean sea</place>
    Aphrodite Macbain: they are only salt water fish?
    FcSeeker Resident: they need the fall
    Aphrodite Macbain: really? I wonder if the Mediterranean is too salty
    Qt Core: they go procreating in rivers
    Aphrodite Macbain: right
    FcSeeker Resident: to get babies
    Aphrodite Macbain: Off the west coast of Canada we have many types of salmon- coho, sockeye, pink and something else
    Aphrodite Macbain: this year we have had a lot of salmon ; last year hardly any. Goes in cycles
    milakel Resident: hi :)
    FcSeeker Resident: Hello milakel
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hiya Mila GTSY
    Qt Core: hi milakel
    Aphrodite Macbain: Please join us. We're talking about salmon
    FcSeeker Resident: what does that GTSY mean ?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Good to see you
    FcSeeker Resident: thank you
    milakel Resident: oh, i love salmon pasta
    FcSeeker Resident: GTSY milakel
    Aphrodite Macbain: yw :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: salmon pasta?
    Aphrodite Macbain: how do you make that?
    milakel Resident: salmon cream tagliatelle to be exact :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: mmmm
    milakel Resident: http://uktv.co.uk/food/recipe/aid/513<personname

    Aphrodite Macbain: I'm planning to put on a performance with a little help from my avi friends
    Aphrodite Macbain: 11 AM at the molecule theatre
    Zon Kwan: slips away waving
    FcSeeker Resident: waves
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye! Zon
    Aphrodite Macbain: Does anyone practice using the 9 second pause in their everyday life?
    Qt Core: i don't follow such a precise pattern, i already got too much interruptions ;-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: lol
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes, it's hard to do in a busy life
    Qt Core: tried a couple time ended up insulting the alarm for distracting me ;-)
    FcSeeker Resident: this little baby panda meditates almost all the time
    Aphrodite Macbain: It's just a useful way of grounding yourself when everything is in turmoil around you
    Aphrodite Macbain: I find it difficult to say calm and grounded
    Aphrodite Macbain: you do Fc?
    FcSeeker Resident: yes


    Aphrodite Macbain: it probably makes you very cuddly
    FcSeeker Resident: (needs his dictionary)
    FcSeeker Resident: smiles
    Aphrodite Macbain thinks "hmmm maybe I should meditate more often and then I'll become more cuddly"
    FcSeeker Resident: could wish so
    Aphrodite Macbain: Is nice to hug
    Aphrodite Macbain: =cuddly
    FcSeeker Resident: yes it is
    FcSeeker Resident: I'm cuddled much in my RL
    FcSeeker Resident: and I love to cuddle 'back'
    Aphrodite Macbain: that's good!
    FcSeeker Resident: (sadly cannot cuddle in SL)
    Aphrodite Macbain: your girl friend is lucky
    FcSeeker Resident: we both are lucky then
    Aphrodite Macbain: (she's very pretty in that picture)
    FcSeeker Resident: aha
    FcSeeker Resident: you meant my SL gf
    FcSeeker Resident: we sadly cannot cuddle

    Aphrodite Macbain: I saw the photo in your profile

    Dash Earthboy: i like to cuddle :)
    FcSeeker Resident: smiles widely

    Dash Earthboy: bye Fc
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye!
    Bleu Oleander: bye

    Qt Core: i'm still enjoying the chat and food i had with a few friends today at lunch and in the car trip to and from the restaurant
    Dash Earthboy: sounds great Qt
    Qt Core: lovely sunny day and almost no traffic too
    Dash Earthboy: wow :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I looked up the road you took on Google. It looks like beautiful countryside Qt
    Dash Earthboy: any paperwork tying you up now Aph?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yes, it will be until the end of the summer; I'm teaching a 14 week course on line.
    Qt Core: nice views on the horizon, Aph, but the motorway is mostly lined with industries
    Bleu Oleander: what are you teaching?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Is it a fast highway?
    Dash Earthboy: yes Qt, it's needed to have convenient access to shipping

    On the road again

    Aphrodite Macbain: I found it scary driving inItaly.Drivers go fast and come right up behind you!
    Qt Core: the limits, depending on weather and lanes are between 110 and 130  kmh
    Aphrodite Macbain: wow
    Dash Earthboy: Aph, sounds like Georgia law enforcement to me :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: on motorbikes?

    Dash Earthboy: Crown Vics :(
    Aphrodite Macbain: ??
    Aphrodite Macbain: is that a type of bike?
    Qt Core: in later years we got the "tutors" basically the take your speed on longer spans, let say 15 km tdo some maths and then you may get a fine waiting you at home ;-)
    Dash Earthboy: big gas-hog Fords
    Aphrodite Macbain: yikes Qt
    Dash Earthboy: the West Virginia Turnpike used to employ similar math Qt
    Aphrodite Macbain: I suppose it saves on police time
    Qt Core: not so scary, but then i rarely drive on motorways
    Dash Earthboy: hey Korel
    Aphrodite Macbain: Motorways make me very tense but the autostrada down the centre of Italy is very well designed
    Qt Core: you are probably speaking about A1 , also called "autostrada del sole" (sun motorway starting in Milan and ending in Naples 

    Qt Core: hi Korel
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hello Korel. How are you?
    Dash Earthboy: is mila working today?

    Aphrodite Macbain: what have you been up to?
    Korel Laloix: Road trip out to the <place w:st="on">Grand Canyon</place>.
    Aphrodite Macbain: ouch. Where are you going during those 6 hours?
    Korel Laloix: Getting from <city w:st="on">Tulsa</city> to the <place w:st="on">Grand Canyon</place>...

    Korel Laloix: Now the Canyon.
    Aphrodite Macbain: ah. That sounds a bit more comfortable on the behind
    Korel Laloix: On in a hotel in Albuquerque, the rest in tent.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Take pix of the canyon and send them to us!
    Korel Laloix: I will.
    Aphrodite Macbain: I love your itinerary Korel
    milakel Resident: take a pic of the tent too! :)
    Korel Laloix: Wow.. you should see this place..
    Korel Laloix: ok... lol
    Korel Laloix: Pictures really can't do it justice.
    milakel Resident: true
    Aphrodite Macbain: try!
    Korel Laloix: We are going to go for a little hike when my gf gets up.... and there is a shuttle over to the visitor center and the viewing platforms.
    milakel Resident: cool
    milakel Resident: is she in sl?
    Korel Laloix: I am trying to get her in here.
    milakel Resident: :)
    Korel Laloix: Showed <place w:st="on">Erin</place> around a bit and she was rather bored.

    Aphrodite Macbain: I hope not
    Korel Laloix: It is up near 9<personname w:st="on">0</personname> I think... lovely.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Do you have a motorbike Qt?
    Qt Core: no, i was dangerous enough with a bicycle ;-)
    Korel Laloix: Supposed to get down to like 37 tonight though.
    Aphrodite Macbain: That's the desert for you.
    milakel Resident: korel, you should real-time upload to flickr so we could share it with you :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-) Qt
    Dash Earthboy: wow
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes. I'd love to see what you see
    milakel Resident: oh, wouldn't think qt is a bike person :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: why do you say that Mila?
    Qt Core: if ever i would go for something in the vespa/scooter class
    Korel Laloix: lol.... I will download some pics after out hike this evening.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Me too; I'd love a little red vespa
    milakel Resident: he looks too neat and proper for a reckless road trip on a bike :)
    Korel Laloix: Some of those tings are nice.
    Aphrodite Macbain: appearances can be deceiving Mila
    milakel Resident: so true :)
    Korel Laloix: And we are not being reckless... smiles
    milakel Resident: hehe
    Qt Core: and around here a bike isn't so a rebel thing
    Aphrodite Macbain: depends on the bike
    Aphrodite Macbain: no?
    Korel Laloix: I pretty much have to have one to keep the stereotype alive around here.... grins
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-) Korel
    Aphrodite Macbain: You dond't look like a biker
    Korel Laloix: You can substitute three tattoos for one motorcycle though if you do it right...
    Aphrodite Macbain: he he
    Korel Laloix: I am not a biker, I am a motorcyclist.....
    Aphrodite Macbain: where are the tattoos?
    Korel Laloix: I actually have four.... smiles
    Aphrodite Macbain: nice distinction
    Qt Core: especially now you see hundreds of manager dressed tie sporting people zooming around in bikes (mostly scooters)
    Korel Laloix: I borrowed those words.
    milakel Resident: qt, well, scooters aren't really bikes :)
    Korel Laloix: The have two wheels.
    Dash Earthboy: i still like vespas :)
    Qt Core: well, when they start being in the 4<personname w:st="on">0</personname><personname w:st="on">0</personname>/4<personname w:st="on">0</personname><personname w:st="on">0</personname>cc range they are
    Qt Core: 4<personname w:st="on">0</personname><personname w:st="on">0</personname>/6<personname w:st="on">0</personname><personname w:st="on">0</personname>cc
    milakel Resident: i think korel has a speedy Honda or something :)
    Aphrodite Macbain wonders how Korel rides a motorcycle wearing high heels
    Korel Laloix: I have a Buell Blast... the only stock bike I could find to fit me.
    Aphrodite Macbain: to fit you? are you big or small?
    Korel Laloix: lol... 4'9 85 lbs
    Aphrodite Macbain: a little thing!
    Korel Laloix: Watch it.
    Korel Laloix smiles
    Aphrodite Macbain grins
    Dash Earthboy: there's a piano concert i need to get to...sry...y'all have a good one
    Korel Laloix: I am not short... I am fun sized.
    Korel Laloix: Take care.
    Aphrodite Macbain: enjoy the concert Dash
    Qt Core: bye Dash, have fun
    Dash Earthboy: good luck on that trip Korel...looking forward to the pics :)
    Korel Laloix: Beautiful place this is.
    Korel Laloix: But the other places we stopped were beautiful as well.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Wish I could be there to. It's grey and rainy here in <city w:st="on"><place w:st="on">Vancouver</place></city>
    milakel Resident: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...BuellBlast.jpg
    milakel Resident: the owner is an apple fan :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: nice bike!
    Aphrodite Macbain: apple? the kind you eat?
    Qt Core: red... one of the most important thing for a bike (and black too in some cases)
    milakel Resident: aph, oh, i have a <place w:st="on"><city w:st="on">Vancouver</city></place> story for you
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes Mila?
    Aphrodite Macbain: do tell
    milakel Resident: http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/rd...449158332.html
    milakel Resident: there :)
    Korel Laloix: Mine is red.
    milakel Resident: a sad one, but hopefully with a happy ending
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yes- how sad. I hope he gets it back!
    Korel Laloix: That does suck.
    Aphrodite Macbain: like losing a friend
    Korel Laloix: So sad that stuff happens.
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes. Perhaps it was someone desperate who took it
    Korel Laloix: No excuse though.
    Aphrodite Macbain: No
    Aphrodite Macbain silently slips away to make lunch
    Korel Laloix: If you are desperate, that is one thing... Taking someithing of sentimental value is just ill.
    Korel Laloix: Ciao
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye!
    milakel Resident: nom
    milakel Resident: i imagine some monk to say: "just drop it"
    Korel Laloix: Stories like that sadden me, but they do happen.
    milakel Resident: i hope he'll get it back
    Korel Laloix: But, if all you have to worry about in life is a missing guitar, you are doing well.
    Korel Laloix: Just watch for my temper tantrum when someone steals my Buell though... smiles
    milakel Resident: :)
    milakel Resident: horror!
    Korel Laloix: Would make my grandma much more happy though.
    Korel Laloix: OK.. thanks for the chat.
    Korel Laloix: Going to go wander a bit.
    milakel Resident: sounds nice :)
    Qt Core: bye Korel
    Korel Laloix: In SL at least.
    Korel Laloix: <place w:st="on">Erin</place> is snoring... lol
    milakel Resident: say hi to her :)
    milakel Resident: when she's up
    Korel Laloix: OK
    milakel Resident: ok... ciao qt :)
