    Yakuzza Lethecus: everything is covered in snow and it´s really beautyful :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: sounds very nice:)
    Vendy Walpole: Yes, rather "warm" :-) Scath
    Vendy Walpole: How does itaffect the traffic Yaku?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it was fine this morning half past 8
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i guess it´s getting worse right now
    Yakuzza Lethecus: so i collected some spareparts for my brother before other ppl were getting up
    Scathach Rhiadra: does it ever snow in California, in the mountains Bertrum?
    Bertrum Quan: Yes, there's snow in the mountains there.
    Vendy Walpole: it is interesting how each season initiates different mood in us, differnt feelings, acitivities, perspectives
    Scathach Rhiadra nods
    Vendy Walpole: I love as instance when winter ties us to our homes,to the warmth inside
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, I like that too, almost like a hibernation
    Vendy Walpole: could say that the winter for me means the time to pay attention to family, to ourselves, to think
    Vendy Walpole: and read
    Scathach Rhiadra: ah yes:)
    Vendy Walpole: I wished to ask you Scath about your view at your guardian experience, cause I am learning now about being a guardian
    Vendy Walpole: and you too Yaku and Bertrum too
    Scathach Rhiadra: mmm, do you mean taking a session?
    Vendy Walpole: Like when you come here do you come with some expectations, plans or ideas/
    Vendy Walpole: yes, that and wider
    Scathach Rhiadra: me, no plans
    Scathach Rhiadra: usually to sleepy to make any , just wait to see what emerges:)
    Vendy Walpole nods in understanding glancing at her cup of coffee close
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: for me being a guardian doesn´t mean that much, it´s more a formality i like the ppl around here and everyone new has to be informed about some things that are going to happen around here like the log issue
    Scathach Rhiadra nods
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i try not to expect anything but i hope for interesting experiences :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://www.flickr.com/photos/40413449@N07/
    Yakuzza Lethecus: just made 3 photos
    Bertrum Quan: I attend this time slot more than any others. Scath does a great job!
    Vendy Walpole: You do not rry to lead the conversation ever?
    Vendy Walpole: try*
    Vendy Walpole: no matter how far or close it is to PaB core topics?
    Scathach Rhiadra: beautiful photos Yakuzza, thank you:)
    Scathach Rhiadra: I hope I don't lead the conversation, though may guide it a bit sometimes:)
    Vendy Walpole: Yes, the photos are as taken from some fairytale, ty Yaku
    Zon Quar: hi
    Scathach Rhiadra: if it gets to far off track, needs reminders
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey zon
    Vendy Walpole: Hello Zon
    Bertrum Quan: Yes. You do that well.
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello zon
    Zon Quar: what r u talking about
    Scathach Rhiadra: we are just talking about our guardian experience for Vendy
    Scathach Rhiadra: I will give you a notecard
    Vendy Walpole: Have you notce a change in your PaB practice through this time you have been in the group?
    Zon Quar: ah what is the role of the guradian
    Vendy Walpole: notice
    Vendy Walpole: yes, as I am getting to take the slot tomorrow :-)
    Vendy Walpole: for the first time
    Vendy Walpole: so, I am collecting experiences
    Zon Quar: ty Sc
    Scathach Rhiadra: well most of the work is around new visitors, if they turn up
    Vendy Walpole: There must be a wide range of questions they ask, some even hard to answer, what you say then?
    Scathach Rhiadra: if you have a notecard to give them, and always tell them about the recording, it is part of the tos, that they have the option to say no to being included
    Scathach Rhiadra: a very general introduction in the begining works best I find
    Scathach Rhiadra: they can listen in, then if they return for another session maybe some of their questions will be answered
    Vendy Walpole: There are really good questions the visitors ask as I have found in the logs, and they made me think hard
    Vendy Walpole: still thinking even
    Scathach Rhiadra: don't forget we are next to the welcome area here, so most who drop by have no real interest in what we are doing here, just see a group of avatars, and want to ask questions about how SL works:)
    Vendy Walpole: hahaha, yes, that could happen I know
    Zon Quar: gtg, c u later
    Scathach Rhiadra: different time slots have different athmosphere maybe, and attract different people
    Scathach Rhiadra: bye Zon
    Vendy Walpole: Bye Zon
    Vendy Walpole: Yes, true
    Scathach Rhiadra: and a quick tip, if someone asks you a really hard question, you can always say 'well, what do you think?':))
    Vendy Walpole nods
    Scathach Rhiadra: encourage them to look for answers in themselves
    Vendy Walpole: Like this Scath cause I believe we all have the answers in ourselves about many things, just need to sit silentlly and find them out
    Scathach Rhiadra nods
    Qt Core: hi all
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Qt:)
    Scathach Rhiadra: new avatar?
    Vendy Walpole waves to qt
    Qt Core: no, an old friend ;-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: lol, scath have you heard stims lectures now ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ,,well, what do you think" :D
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes Yak, that is where I picked up that trick:))
    Scathach Rhiadra: he never answeres questions:))
    Vendy Walpole: Interesting!!!!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning qt
    Qt Core: 'morning Yaku
    Vendy Walpole: I am still waiting Qt to rezz completelly ....grins
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Qt Core: sadly it is not 1 prim only ;-)
    Scathach Rhiadra: ah, how many/
    Vendy Walpole: ◕‿◕
    Qt Core: all in all 342 if i remember it right (btw it ios not my work, i just added the trek commbadge)
    Qt Core: so, what is the topic today ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: oh, what it means to be a guardian or who is living in the coldest place :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: what about a borg cube texture qt ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ah, it was silence
    Qt Core: i was thinking about that (or maybe just a shiny black
    Qt Core: but the cube itself is no-mod ;-)
    Qt Core: so i have to do some work... and i'm bad at it
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Vendy Walpole: This shape inspires in me desire to create and build, Qt
    Vendy Walpole: almost try to make you a house :-)
    Qt Core: -5C at 8am here and a couple cm of frozen snow
    Qt Core: ty wendy but i would not know where to put it :-)
    Vendy Walpole: ã‹¡
    Vendy Walpole: ã‹¡
    Scathach Rhiadra: relatively warm compared to Vendy and Yak's -16 /-18:)
    Qt Core: even if an house as an av may be fun ;-)
    Vendy Walpole: you would have a problem to place yourself anywhere then
    Vendy Walpole chuckles
    Yakuzza Lethecus: that might even be a pab metaphor :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the house i mean, you are at home where you are
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Qt Core: in nearby (300 km) mountains at about 200 yesterday they had -37 (ahhh, sunny italy)
    Vendy Walpole: This is great Yaku, thank you for the thought and analgy
    Vendy Walpole: analogy*
    Qt Core: 200m
    Qt Core: 2000
    Qt Core: i was there a couple summer ago, better to have a jacket even in summer there
    Vendy Walpole: or could be further --- you are at home where your heart belongs?
    Vendy Walpole: There are many whose hearts belong to SL world :-)
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Vendy Walpole: Anyway, I believe being a guardian helps we develop our side to deal with different people and situations, agree?
    Scathach Rhiadra nods
    Qt Core: heart and bag under the eyes ;-)
    Vendy Walpole: It is good experience, no matter that it is earned in sl, could be used in rl
    Vendy Walpole smiles to Qt's comment
    Qt Core: agree, even if i haven't been guarding a slot yet
    Vendy Walpole: never?
    Qt Core: no
    Vendy Walpole: What stops you to do that Qt?
    Qt Core: even if i seem to spend a lot of time here and in sl at large i may be summoned at a moment notice, and i don't like the idea of being "in charge" and not being here full time
    Qt Core: that and being lazy and commitment-phobic ;-)
    Scathach Rhiadra: :))
    Vendy Walpole: thank you for the sincere answer :))
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye everyone
    Scathach Rhiadra: good bye Yak, have a good weekend:)
    Vendy Walpole: Bye Yaku, enjoy
    Qt Core: as in they knew i was called away the instant i hit enter ;-)
    Qt Core: as if
    Vendy Walpole: There has been an urge in me, since I know for myself, to ask people too many questions, though know it seems often as forcing people to open themselves unwillingly and I have to control myself about that
    Vendy Walpole: which is not easy at all, trust me :))
    Scathach Rhiadra: nothing wrong with asking questions:)
    Qt Core: that's nice, there are people that would like to talk but sometimes find difficoult to start
    Vendy Walpole: Yes, but not everyone is ready to open whenever I wish
    Vendy Walpole: and I would like that 24/7 hahaha
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Qt Core: i just hope you have a job that make you talk a lot then or we may not survive your curiosity ;-)
    Vendy Walpole laughing
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Vendy Walpole: Not really, I am in construction
    Vendy Walpole: there the words are not appreciated much, but the deeds are
    Vendy Walpole: what you build
    Scathach Rhiadra nods
    Qt Core: so you may have a surplus of words when you come home
    Vendy Walpole: You know, I am not a fan of talking anything but of getting know people better actually
    Qt Core: for several years i believed that we had a "daily" quota of words to say
    Vendy Walpole: In each of us there is a treasure which I wish to see and learn from it
    Vendy Walpole: so, that are for my questions
    Vendy Walpole: ã‹¡
    Vendy Walpole: ã‹¡
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Vendy Walpole: People in SL are the most important thing that attracts me here beside the oportunity to learn
    Qt Core: yes, for me too, the shiny graphis is just a plus
    Bertrum Quan: Daily quota of words... that's an interesting thought! QT, have you changed your mind out it?
    Bertrum Quan: *about
    Qt Core: yes, even if i still tend to talk a lot i discovered that nothing would happen if you don't met your quota ;-)
    Qt Core: (i noticed i'm a little more talkative in rl than in sl if nor engaged)
    Vendy Walpole: You will agree, this group is composed of rather interesting people and I can't help myself about it
    Vendy Walpole: grins
    Scathach Rhiadra nods
    Qt Core: yes, shocking discoveries almost at every session ;-)
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Vendy Walpole: well, perhaps not schoking but there are discoveries if we pay attention enough
    Bertrum Quan: Need to head off to sleep. Have a good weekend everyone.
    Vendy Walpole: You too Bertrum
    Scathach Rhiadra: good night Bertrum, take care:)
    Vendy Walpole: sleep well
    Vendy Walpole: I'll go too, enjoy the winter Scath and Qt
    Vendy Walpole: Bye
    Scathach Rhiadra: I should be off too, have a good day Vendy
    Scathach Rhiadra: have a good weekend Qt:)
    Qt Core: bye Wendy
