We haven't done it in a while, and don't have a chat room we used to. There is one that can be used though. I'll find the link to it later today and post, and we can see if there's enough interest to hold a chat party.

Uhm, Cheryl set up this thread with the title "First Sat of Every Month"

We've been awfully quiet chatwise for a few years so, who knows, maybe it is time for a revival.

The first saturday for this month has already gone though...

We could change to the second saturday? That would be coming saturday but with people from Europe, Oz and the States the question of when has always revolved around the time rather than the day.

How about we give it another try for the first Saturday, again in May.

I missed this one all together...drat, and I use to really enjoy the ones
we use to have here. Several of us from MoM have used Hans chat room
before it's easy and a lot of fun.

Thanks Hans for making it available to MoMers

Now that's weird, it won't fully load. It just sits there at White Screen with the Load Icon going round and round. I got in last night when I checked the link.



[edit] Well, don't that just take the biscuit, now I manage to get in - after the Chat is finished. [/edit]

I enjoyed chatting with Anneli, Edith and Hans until I had a knock on my door. I went back later (at the time of my previus post) but when nobody came after half an hour I gave it up.
