OMG! Meryl, that was so fitting. Utterly heartbreaking but fitting!

(((Richard)))  :-*

Thanks for the Auden poem, Paul.  It's beautiful.  :-*

Thanks for the reminder, too, Chrissi.  It would've slipped right by me otherwise.

It's Pine Creek Day again.  Our third together.

I heard something today, the gist of which was:   Plan your life for 100 years, but know that you could die today.

Thank you very much for resurrecting this thread, Paul.  Something was tugging at my brain today, and then I logged in tonight and saw the banner.

Thank you for digging out this thread again Paul.

Pine Creek day again :(.
Can't believe it's our third Pine Creek day together.

And now, thinking back to Pine Creek day last year, we didn't know what an additional layer of grief would be added to our BBM experience only two months later.

Shit.  Good point, Chrissi.

I'm glad this thread was brought back since I didn't know about it until now.

Hi everyone,

Pine Creek Day, November 7th, is rolling around again.  I'm organizing a viewing of Brokeback Mountainin BetterMost chat for that day.  It will be at 5pm Eastern time//2pm Pacific Time//9am (Nov 8 ) in Sydney//22:00 UTC.

If you want to participate, you can prepare ahead of time by doing two things:

1)  Log into BetterMost chat ahead of time, and check that it works for you.  You can go in alone or with another member and play with the features.  Do this now, if you have a few minutes.  The spot to click is at the top of the page here.  

If chat doesn't work for you, download and install the newest version of Java (it's free).  If it still doesn't work after that, then PM me.  If you PM me before installing the newest version of Java, I'm going to ask you to go download and install it before I'll be able to help you.

2)  Have your BBM viewing station in view of your BetterMost chat station.


See you for the movie.  I plan to ask people to push play at ten minutes after the hour.  It's fine to arrive late, we'll just tell you where we're at in the movie.  The plan is to not push pause once we begin.  You can feel free to arrive when you like, and leave when you need.

I have never done this before, and I would really like to join in.

Is it too much to ask for that it be a couple hours earlier?

It'll be 4 fucking am here!!  :o

Sonja, as the first responder, you definitely get to help plan the time.  How about we revise it to 2pm Seattle time (me) and thus 11pm Sweden time (you).  That actually makes it 9am Sunday Sydney time, and Kerry has said he'd like to participate.  How does that sound?
