Talk about getting into technology! All the baby-boomers keeping up to date and in tune with all the latest trends.
Here we are communicating via the llink ‘Corona Conversation’ and sharing all sorts of things. Although I must admit after the first few entries, some of which sort of went astray, being accidentally misdirected by the authors, things have slowed down a bit. No news? Or a reluctance to share? Or no interest?
Look at it this way: Kerry told us about her problems with irate possums, John told us about his delving into ‘home and garden‘ repairs, John’s tales of derring-do battling with his surrounding vegetation, Wendy, apart from keeping us up to date about her garden also divulged that Dan is still out there exercising his good old vintage bicycle, and of course not to forget Bob busy battling his favourite weeds, forming mountains out mulch and making appeals for a hoppy marsupial to help him control things.
So good fun and informative and possibly also sort of helping people’s sanity by giving them a laugh which is what this exercise was about.
So, looking forward to plenty more deliveries from you all.
Did you plead difficulty in navigating this system. Too hard? Too technical? No more excuses now since we have just posted a How To Use The site information sheet, courtesy of Kerry’s efforts To you all.
Now to Zoom.
Yesterday some of the Friends involved in Garden Projects participated in a catch meeting to discuss where things were re Rope Bridge, Western Tall Gums Walk, Davidson Plum Interpretive Sign etc, etc.
A meeting you may well ask? In these restrictive times with the police lurking outside every door looking to catch law breakers and impose huge fines.
Well no. Not face to face, but utilising Zoom. Here we were, all lined up in little photo squares across the tops of our screens sporting our very animated faces and serving to reminds us what we all looked like. Much joviality indeed catching up and, noticing we all still looked the same, although one face attached to He Whose Name Shall Not Be Mentioned was almost unrecognisabl. Botox you may well ask? But no, methinks his regular barber/ hair stylist was no longer attainable and his shaver was broken. Enough of that. A meeting it was although not all that much was achieved, however the event was a social succes. So much so that the idea of using Zoom for the next Management meeting was floated. So watch this space or somebody else’s space to see what decision is to be made. I suspect one downside is going to be the absence of Ian and Janet’s famous catering skills?
A virtual afternoon tea anyone?
