[IP] Chat for the week of 10-29-2000

Chat Announcement

Okay, you chataholics--we now have chats every day of the week,
except for Saturday, so there's no excuse not to show up to at least
one of our get-togethers!

Below is IP's schedule of weekly, moderated (i.e., you know there'll
be at least one other person in the room!) chat times. The times
below don't change, so mark your calendars--if you miss one this week,
there's always another chat at the same time next week.

Please remember that the chat rooms are open 24/7. If you need to
talk or can't sleep, drop a note to the list saying what room you are
in, and, just wait, someone will show up. IP has members from all
over the world, so someone is always awake! When I was in hospital, I
chatted with peoples= from the UK, Germany, and Oz. They were my life
line to the world. And now that I'm home 24/7, I am on-line most of
the time. I know that members from other parts of the world do chat,
so if you'd like to set up a time and day to host a chat, send me a
note (IP has a great group of chat hosts that would love to help you
start a new chat. All it takes is some time).

    Mary DeHaas  (email @ redacted) hosts a chat for spouses and support
persons of insulin pumpers on Monday nights at 9 p.m. EDT (2 a.m.
GMT) in the Small Talk 1 Room.

need people to help fill-in for chats, when someone can't do their regular
