: : : : : : 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. ?????
: Hi ,
: The dumpsters shut down they had some problems with some member.Hey! Not me!! They now have a chat on e circles.It is nt very good,either no one there or whatever.I deleted it.The founder has her own website now but I never saved it.AOL was how I made many friends,Eddie and Sticky from UK ,and of course our lovely Ruth.If you saw her photo's You would see much how her husband and her spend there lives.Love you all,

: : : : : 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
: : ============================
Ruth and Googy
Wow! I had no idea and it's so good to hear from someone who really KNOWS what they're talking about (not ME!!) I searched the Park Place site for more info on the chatrooms, but hadn't come up with much. This really fills in the blanks!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
