: : : : went to AOL's web site and signed up and installed AOL Messenger, got a screen name and password, entered them to gain access to the chat rooms and got a message that said chat groups are private and for members only and you must be invited by a member. ?????

: : : Contact Stephanie at Sfparker8@aol.com and she will be very helpful, too. She has posted her e-mail address at The Park Place site, so I don't think I've overstepped any bounds (I hope). She has been keeping that board going for Young Onset Parkies (age 55 and under) but it is open to all ages, caretakers and PWPs. Good luck to you! I hope you are able to get into the chat!

Maybe I can shed some light on this. There is a chat every Wednesday afternoon on PD. The only thing is, it can only be accessed if you are on AOL. It won't work if you are on some other ISP and just get AOL's instant messenger. That's what happened to our much loved Googy when AOL booted her out once too often and she changed her provider. While we can talk on AOL Instant Messenger, we can't get her in the chats (and we're tried!!!!)She is missed, but now she's here and doing so much good.
The Wednesday chat is at 3:30 Pacific time, 4:30 Mountain, 5:30 Central, 6:30 Eastern (with some minor adjustments for those that don't change time for daylight savings)and 11:30 U.K. time. We have a few members from England.
As I understand it, there are also the following chats for Babyboomers (but they welcome all ages)in the same room Monday nights at 5:00 PST, Tuesday 9:00 p.m. PST (for all of you who can't sleep) and a special 20-40 years of age chat on Sunday at 4:30 PST. Again, these are all on AOL only. Just having AOL Instant Messenger won't get you in.
Any of you who are on AOL and would like more information on the Wednesday chat or would like to be put on our reminder e-mail list, please e-mail me at OnTheDock@aol.com. I will give you the link to the chatroom
For the other chats, contact Ruben at Lxsgp@aol.com or Stephanie at
sfr1040220@ aol.com or Sharon at Sfparker8@aol.com or Nick at Shakyspker@aol.com.
I'm not sure what is going on at The Park Place right now. I have some links to other chats that are accessible to everyone, not only AOL. I haven't visited for a while, so I'm not so sure my information is up-to-date. But Googy might know about the PWP Dumpster Gang which I have visited occasionslly.
How about it Googy??
Hope this helps, Ruth
