How's your day?

Will do Trogg, Ian. Have done the band at the bottom, now I've started the picture. Actually, I have a quite attractive Hernia. It's the talk of A & E.

Also got a presentable Hiatus Hernia, but that's another story.  thumbsup

For the next meet up,   we'll have to book twice as many tables  and shout loudly to each other as social distancing will still be in place for a long time .... until they've developed a vaccine. And NO HUGS!

So have I. I've never done them before, then laughed at those walking through the streets apparently talking to a phone. I must say though it has been nice to "see " familiar faces. I even got to video call my cousin in Leicester that I hadn't seen for probably 20 years. We are now constantly in touch. Had a lovely long chat also with Lizzie. Other calls have been to friends in Nottingham and  relatives in Sicily. I can see I'm getting hooked on itsmile2

I've got Skype on me pc and tablets but the only contact I know is 'the sound test'. So, effectively, talking to meself, or at least listening.

Anybody else on Skype? Another point, how do you connect?

Just sitting reading messages when my daughter , who is sitting outside, called me to come and look. On passing the window looking outside I saw what I thought was a blackbird. As I got outside it flew away, but it wasn't a blackbird it was a swift. They had grouped and were flying everywhere, swooping down to almost touching us. It's the first time this year that we've seen them. In the summer they congregate on the telephone wires under the eves of the house and the noise they make is unbelievable. They also swoop at us when we are in the pool, they are thirsty and take every opportunity to grab a sip in flight. Actually we don't see many other birds considering we live in the country. Maybe they've been scared by all the tractors around during the year ( none at all now) The 

pigeons have all gone there are only odd blackbirds and sparrows around. Shame as I love to see them and feed them as I did in Nottingham.

Bl**dy Blackbirds, they spend most of their time in my garden throwing the pine park mulch around. It is amazing how far the little bu**ers can throw pieces of bark. It is a full time job putting it back on the garden.

Just like that pesky, misnamed species, homo sapiens, Oz.  It's amazing how far they can throw their unwanted litter because the idle s*ds can't be bothered to take it home or find a bin!  Far too many of em!

What about the meet up on Skype, Zoom etc?

 

 

Not sure how that would work with a dozen or more participants. Then again what do I know? I've not videoed, facetimed, skyped, zoomed or anything else before. I might manage with two bean tins and a long string though...

We have the same problem  with the Squirrels.  They chuck it all over the front path.

Den and Brew.   I can say with some authority that using Zoom for a SOCIAL gathering of more than about 6 people would not work!    We have about 20 people to our Sunday morning church service (or 'gathering' might be a better description) on Zoom and it works fairly well because not everyone is talking at once.   For example, whilst the Pastor is giving his message, we are all put on mute to cut down on background noise from our homes + a couple of babies and toddlers who are also present and enjoying seeing themselves on screen and wanting to chat!  When  some  other people give the Bible readings they are unmuted (obviously) 

It has to be carefully controlled by the person who has called the meeting  - at the end of theservice, everyone is unmuted so we can chat with each other, but it ends up being quite a cacophony and, in my opinion, doesn't work too well.

For  a formal meeting of not too many people, Zoom is good, I think

We use the 'gallery' view on Zoom so everyone appears on the screen at once (in little  'boxes') but ours spills over onto 2 pages so there's some swiping between the two.

In a large NS meetup, it  usually subdivides into several smaller conversational groups so that wouldn't work.

The  convener  of a meeting has to state a time and give out an ID number and password to the people who are invited.   Obviously each person has to download Zoom on to their device!

 If anyone on here wants to try it out and convene a meeting for a VERY FEW  people,  I'll join in but I don't want to control it!  Best to invite via pm?

I'm afraid it can't be me nor can I participate. I don't have a tablet and the laptops are quite old and do not have cameras...
