    [19:12] Calvino Rabeni: and trying to get email to work to a friend's satisfaction on different computers
    [19:12] Korel Laloix: That sounds lovely... more preffer open feilds, but I understand the draw of the forest.
    [19:12] Korel Laloix: hey

    [19:13] Aphrodite Macbain: Hey
    [19:13] Calvino Rabeni: these trees have orange bark like human skin very smooth, and thin foliage, you can see a lot through them

    [19:14] Calvino Rabeni: Do you have madrona trees where you live, Aph?
    [19:14] Aphrodite Macbain: No I dont think so

    [19:20] Aphrodite Macbain: not sure -
    [19:20] Calvino Rabeni: they seem to come and go ... about 12 years ago I thought they were dying out here but, they just had a bad couple years
    [19:20] Aphrodite Macbain: byee Paradise
    [19:21] Aphrodite Macbain: It is somethng to do with inadequate water supply I think

    [19:21] Aphrodite Macbain: where were you walking Cal?
    [19:21] Calvino Rabeni: they are finicky. like a hillside with good drainage, dryish soil
    [19:21] Calvino Rabeni: Southern Oregon
    [19:22] Aphrodite Macbain: a forest by the ocean?
    [19:22] Aphrodite Macbain: I cant imagine a forest filled with arbutus
    [19:24] Calvino Rabeni: https://maps.google.com/?ll=42.177231,-122.714528&spn=0.003952,0.010568&t=h&z=17
    [19:24] Aphrodite Macbain: Just learned there is a griefer animation script that can take over yr avatar for ever!
    [19:24] Calvino Rabeni: that is a satellite photo of an arbutus forest
    [19:24] Calvino Rabeni: mixed with pines
    [19:25] Calvino Rabeni: forever ??
    [19:25] Calvino Rabeni: that is evil possession
    [19:26] Aphrodite Macbain: so dont let a stranger animate yr avatar
    [19:27] Calvino Rabeni: I don't think I know how to do that
    [19:27] Aphrodite Macbain: wow- that's amazing Cal - a very large territory

    [19:27] Aphrodite Macbain: warning - griefer script Sun, Jul 07 2013 7:26:54 PM PDT we have received warning that a griefing script called "SoulSeize" is back in SL. This is a scripted device (usually a HUD) that allows a griefer to take control of your Avi, forcing it to perform animations that you cannot stop. It will ask the victim ONCE to allow it to animate their Avatar, and from then on will retain the permission forever. There is no way to revoke the permissions (except in Firestorm). JUST DO NOT ACCEPT a random request to animate your avi from someone you don't know!

    [19:27] Calvino Rabeni: it sure does seem large
    [19:27] Aphrodite Macbain: I had no idea
    [19:28] Aphrodite Macbain: You have all that territory to hike in. You will neer run out
    [19:28] Calvino Rabeni: no never
    [19:28] Aphrodite Macbain: It looks mountainous

    [19:29] Aphrodite Macbain: Kori - are you planning any trips this summer or are you staying close to home?
    [19:30] Korel Laloix: Not sure yet...
    [19:30] Korel Laloix: But I do want to go camping again and maybe head to a beach somewhere.
    [19:30] Korel Laloix: Sort of working some things out with Reeba though... smiles
    [19:30] Aphrodite Macbain: ?
    [19:31] Korel Laloix: if she can get off of work for a week we might go someone together.
    [19:31] Korel Laloix: oh sorry.. did not see the bell.

    [19:32] Aphrodite Macbain: Cal - I am trying to create a piece of cloth that my avi is sewing. Any idea how I can do that?
    [19:33] Calvino Rabeni: hm sorry Aph, I don't know either
    [19:34] Aphrodite Macbain: rats
    [19:35] Aphrodite Macbain: Have either of you seen the exhibits in the dome?
    [19:35] Aphrodite Macbain: Nice stuff there
    [19:35] Korel Laloix: Was too lagged to look at it when I tried... frowns
    [19:36] Aphrodite Macbain: It will be up for a while
    [19:39] Aphrodite Macbain: I was never realy good at embroidery anyway!

    [19:39] Calvino Rabeni: I haven't seen it .. what is the latest theme?
    [19:39] Aphrodite Macbain: dreams
    [19:39] Aphrodite Macbain: our dreams
    [19:40] Aphrodite Macbain: literally or figuratively
    [19:40] Aphrodite Macbain: I did one of me floating in space, tethered to the earth with a silver cord
    [19:41] Aphrodite Macbain: other people were invited to float as well
    [19:41] Calvino Rabeni: sounds dreamy
    [19:41] Aphrodite Macbain: have a look
    [19:41] Calvino Rabeni: i will when I get a chance
    [19:41] Aphrodite Macbain: Storm made a bed
    [19:42] Aphrodite Macbain: with many poses and we were invited to create our own dreams
    [19:42] Aphrodite Macbain: It's hard to make something as abstract as dreams

    [19:43] Aphrodite Macbain: I dream more when I'm in a new place
    [19:43] Aphrodite Macbain: Maybe because I dont sleep deeply
    [19:43] Calvino Rabeni: that is I think common for people
    [19:44] Aphrodite Macbain: are you dreaming differently?
    [19:44] Calvino Rabeni: I don't remember dreams easily when I am busy
    [19:44] Calvino Rabeni: which seems to be too much lately
    [19:45] Aphrodite Macbain: busy when you're sleeping?

    [19:45] Aphrodite Macbain: oops
    [19:45] Korel Laloix: OK.. I am off to bed kind people.
    [19:45] Korel Laloix: Thanks for the compnay and chat.
    [19:45] Calvino Rabeni: Sleep well dream well
    [19:45] Calvino Rabeni: YW Korel
    [19:45] Korel Laloix: Ciao... take care... smiles
    [19:45] Aphrodite Macbain: nite Kori
    [19:45] Calvino Rabeni: Bye :)

    [19:46] Aphrodite Macbain: Are you staying with your old friend?
    [19:48] Aphrodite Macbain: in Oregon? I thought you went for a holiday
    [19:48] Calvino Rabeni: Yes ... and here is a creature from yesterday
    [19:48] Calvino Rabeni: https://picasaweb.google.com/117007697394977922032/Oregon?locked=true#5898067340752965842
    [19:49] Calvino Rabeni: the day time creatures are curious ... night time ones scare me though
    [19:49] Aphrodite Macbain: I couldnt open it
    [19:49] Aphrodite Macbain: :-(
    [19:50] Calvino Rabeni: hmm maybe needs something done let's see
    [19:53] Calvino Rabeni: https://picasaweb.google.com/1170076...eat=directlink
    [19:53] Aphrodite Macbain: awww.
    [19:54] Calvino Rabeni: These google pics seem to change how they are shared every couple years
    [19:54] Aphrodite Macbain: very scary!!
    [19:54] Aphrodite Macbain: where was the deer? On the path?
    [19:54] Calvino Rabeni: she was pretty tame ... stared at me a lot
    [19:54] Calvino Rabeni: i was at my front door, the doe was at the corner of the house
    [19:54] Aphrodite Macbain: what were you wearing?!:-)
    [19:55] Calvino Rabeni: they think they own the place :)
    [19:55] Aphrodite Macbain: Darn deer
    [19:55] Calvino Rabeni: i was fresh out of carrots
    [19:55] Aphrodite Macbain: they eat everything in your gatden
    [19:55] Calvino Rabeni: (do they eat carrots?)
    [19:55] Aphrodite Macbain: I'm not sure- they aren't horses
    [19:55] Calvino Rabeni: right, they ate everything
    [19:56] Aphrodite Macbain: They like leaves and grasses
    [19:56] Aphrodite Macbain: there must have been family nearby
    [19:56] Calvino Rabeni: many of the trees have branches that come down to a flat layer about 6 feet off the ground
    [19:56] Calvino Rabeni: it is due to grazing :)

    [19:56] Aphrodite Macbain: In Banff, I lived in elk territory
    [19:56] Aphrodite Macbain: It was nuts in the fall during the rut
    [19:57] Calvino Rabeni: they make loud noises like a donkey
    [19:57] Aphrodite Macbain: they became very aggressive
    [19:58] Calvino Rabeni: just over-wrought I think
    [19:58] Aphrodite Macbain: yes- a sort of high pitched squeal, wheeze, screach that travels for miles
    [19:58] Aphrodite Macbain: overwrought from too many tourists

    [19:58] DR42 Resident: ηαмαѕтє

    [20:01] DR42 Resident: OK. I'll just sit, then. I'm in an off mood tonight.
    [20:01] Calvino Rabeni: We have a recorder here ... and if you are new here we inform people about it ... have you been here before ?
    [20:01] Calvino Rabeni: (since I don't come that often)

    [20:03] DR42 Resident: On and off, I was here 12 hours ago, missed the one this afternoon.
    [20:04] DR42 Resident: Most days, the 1 PM sl time is the only one I can attend.

    [20:05] Aphrodite Macbain: I have a harder and harder time coming
    [20:05] Calvino Rabeni: You are taking on a lot of other activities

    [20:08] Calvino Rabeni: what is happening with the course?
    [20:08] Aphrodite Macbain: It starts in September but there is lots of reading. This weekend I read Antigone and Medea
    [20:09] Aphrodite Macbain: the greeks. now on to Mencius and Confucianism
    [20:09] Calvino Rabeni: I used to think that was "confusionism"
    [20:10] Calvino Rabeni: but now I realize the error of my ways
    [20:10] Calvino Rabeni: i was confused
    [20:10] Aphrodite Macbain: lol
    [20:10] Aphrodite Macbain: confucius is confusing
    [20:10] Aphrodite Macbain: Mencius less so
    [20:10] Calvino Rabeni: its rather cultural I suppose

    [20:10] DR42 Resident: I broke my Humor. today.
    [20:11] Calvino Rabeni: a bone?
    [20:11] Calvino Rabeni: or a mood
    [20:11] Aphrodite Macbain: how?
    [20:11] DR42 Resident: not the bone.
    [20:11] Aphrodite Macbain: you lost it?
    [20:11] DR42 Resident: Yea.
    [20:12] Aphrodite Macbain: your temper?
    [20:12] Aphrodite Macbain: hmmm
