1 (who?)
i just wanted to say a few things....first of all, I know i have been a bit absent this past week.....a friend of mine refused to go into a nursing home and went home instead so i have been looking after him...:faint: what a hard headed old man he is...:rofl: but he listens to me for the most part and i think he will be able to remain at home instead of in the nursing home which he called a prison...he even tried to escape :lmao: it took 3 nurses to get him back inside.....he is 83 so i am thankful to get to spend some time with him....

i am planning after the first of the year to implement a "tweaks and Critiques" night/day/evening in the #Aposhack if you can help or want to participate i would love some feed will be a weekly event...same time same day every week so if you miss one or some of one there will always be another the next week.....

i need some more dd suggestions!!!

Finally, I trust you all have a great holiday season!

i :heart: you!!!!!!

Keeping busy away from the PC is great. I get so caught up in my PC life I miss out on real life sometimes :(

NOTE TO SELF: Spend more time with other people in person.

Keep a smile on :)

Hmm... I don't know what that retirement home he used to be in is like but either he suffers from dementia (which makes him run away or not wanting to go there) or that retirement home is in horrible conditions :shrug:

Concerning the idea for the new project in the shack...go for it though I don't know if I'm going to participate...even though I'm a subscriber I never activate the Critique function for my stuff because I think whoever wants to critique me can do that in a comment as well. And I'm not of a good critique writer myself so yeah...I guess I'd rather go for the tweaks xDD

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :)

"apophysis is the name, and tweaks are my game" heheeh

good luck with your friend. all things that happen have positive aspects. You get to have more time with him. :) And yes, old folk tend to see nursing homes like prisons. Who can blame them?

Good luck in your initiative. I know you will do fine, you already do so much for the community. :) Be sure to include a time for americans and europeans alike. 8 hours of difference (or more) can make a huge difference in how many people and which people will show up in the "T&C" event (or tic tac= T&C. LOL). So consider making two schedules if you see that one is not covering all. :) I'm sure you are practised enough with the confusing "many people talking" in the chat and params flying in and out, so that part doesn't need touching. Another good idea would be to "fix" some "tutors", every week changing, to the fractalists. Changing because we sometimes don't learn one thing from one person and go and learn with another. Not that the first explain badly, but it is simply like this. It happens to me in dance all the time. One year with a teacher and I failed always to learn a step. Changed teacher, and learned in one class. But I still go back to the first, because I :heart: her and there is lots of things to learn still. personal story aside: I guess that is all I can think about right now about that idea.

Have a great holiday season too hun.
