The Meeting Place

Total "Lockdown" - How will you pass the time?

Long term and well respected member "Twyla" ....has suggested/requested this Topic -  which is a great idea!

What will you do?

Do people have any special Hobbies?  Reading? Music? Movies? Gardening? etc. etc.

Cleaning out "stuff" that has been put off for years? Tidying drawers/cupboards/garages/spare rooms (if you have any?)

Whatever you do - stay safe and best wishes to all ....

There was a cryptocurrency spammer who put his stuff amidst your and Foxy's conversation.

When the spam was removed the comment and sub comment went with it, which in turn shrunk  the whole post back to page 4.

Thanks for letting me know Suze, I thought I was going mad lol.

Rather than twiddle her thumbs in quarantine, this bored 15-year-old girl recently turned one of her bedroom walls into a proper 8-foot climbing wall—and it only took her one week.

Erin Sloan says she was inspired to build the structure after the North West Face Climbing Centre—which is where she has been climbing for the past four years and working as an instructor—was closed due to COVID-19.

If you have time here is a good course to do, I don't have the time but thought others might if they are bored.

What does it mean to be happy?

While these 7 words have aroused philosophers for centuries—like so many things in life—there’s an ancient aspect to this question, but a modern scientific answer.

And what science says in response to “what does it mean to be happy” is rooted in decades of psychological research—all of which you can now learn about for free through the online “Science of Happiness” course available through the UC Berkeley website ad gratis.

That is nice Suze, thanks for the smile, yes doing great, just learning about tolerance more, noisy kid next door needs to get back to school!

Hope you are doing well too :)

Thinking of going to brave the big wide world this week sometime to get my mum a mother's day present, shipping adds extra expense and it might be out of stock and then you have to wait for refunds and end up with no present.
