I was on a zoom seminar that was hacked. A couple young kids saying a lot of foul language and drawing lewd pictures.  The host just ended the meeting

Apparently you have to keep the password private to avoid such takeovers. I don't know if it's that simple. But we're about to find out at work.

That was my first Zoom meeting.  I don't remember if I got an email link from the person who led the meeting or I was sent the link by someone else. It hasn't happened since

No one will know for awhile, but exposed does not equal infected and apparently all were wearing masks.  I'm gonna guess that no one will get it.  And the article is very poorly written - it doesn't actually seem to know if the person who was asymptomatic actually tested positive.  And here's my other simple guess: If no one gets it we will not here another peep about this.  If ONE person gets it it will be plastered everywhere with no mention of the 90 who didn't get it.

True and I am watching for more information on this.  It will be great if the masks protected everyone.  My point about the article is that a sick person continued to work without getting tested and risked spreading it.

They are coming to service my air conditioner.  I was asked if I was sick and was told that the service tech will be wearing eye protection a face shield, a mask, gloves, and booties.  Can't remember if they were going to wear the full suit, but I think she said that too. 

Did they ask you to wear a mask?

Clark County, where I live, was not among the group of Washington counties given the green light to move to phase 2 of reopening.   I was expecting my county to be approved,  however, there was an outbreak at a Vancouver food processing plant.

I managed to finish the movie and willed away the restless - now listening to the symphonies of Edmund Rubbra.

This Zoom concert from 54 Below is still showing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRcRsNmw7Kg

And that is why I would never use Zoom for anything - so amateur, terrible sound, video lag - I'm so glad we didn't do any of those things - Skype has a pro version and supposedly you can do all those things but nope.

The Zoom memorial we went to was very well done and the sound was excellent.


I was not even aware that Zoom had passed away.

This morning I'm listening to the complete 1973 "Sondheim: A Musical Tribute," with all the host introductions and numbers that did not make the released recording.



I have a copy of the whole show, too.  I wish more had been able to be released.

I haven't seen him in years.  The last time was in front of the Broadway Theatre, and I cannot remember now what he was seeing.  I was just walking by.

Long before I ever found a 1958 London playbill for Candide, I had a photocopy from Tom.  He's 92 now, and I hope he's in good health.

Yes, I’m happy that he’s enjoyed a great long life, and I hope that continues.

Ditto and Ditto!!

I started using Skype too many years ago to remember. Zoom I started using for work about nine months ago. Some outside sales people used it for a presentation. I now use it gor bible study and for happy hour get-togethers. It’s soon to replace Skype st work. WhatsApp has a FaceTime feature, which is free and great for calling Germany.

My friend David is originally from Yucatán and went to university in Spain.  He said that WhatsApp is very popular in Europe.  I started using it so that we could stay connected after he moved to Seattle.

Re Zoom:  First time I used it was last month when my friend Robin hosted an online birthday party for a certain superstar.  We chatted, sang "Happy Birthday," and those of us with cakes blew out the candles.   Her concert director showed up for a few minutes.   Yes, we are aware that we are crazy.

So, when's the HHW Zoom get-together going to happen??

Say, we could do an HHW Zoom-together.  Let's think about that, that might just be amusing on some level.

My sister Paula wanted to go to Lowe's and buy some flowers and mulch and top soil.....so I went with her.

I wanted to get a hanging flower basket for the back porch.....and I also got a Sunset Gerber Daisy - which I had never heard of before, but it was very eye catching.

When I first read this, I thought you got a Sunset Gerber Baby! :o
