Hey @Lizzie .
Were we from six countries north to south, east and mid west? Then seven adding @Jessica-and-Henry0. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 That’s a mighty fine effort considering this is a global meetup across the days and time zones! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼💐
@Cathie19 I think it's more than that - we've got Canada (@Lawrene0, @Bez8), USA (@Clara116, @Louisa, me), England (@Paul1255 , @Lizzie, @Katie), the Netherlands (@Alexandra316), Germany (@Till-and-Jutta0), Spain (@Marissa107), St. Lucia (@Debra300 ), Australia (you, @Robin4, @Jason1470 ), and Korea (@Jessica-and-Henry0 ).
That makes NINE! Amazing! And I don't know how many time zones 🙂
@Cathie19 I told someone today that I thought the three of you were in three different time zones.
The three US hosts were also in three different time zones. @Clara116 threw me a curveball by telling me she was in Central Time. I went to college down the Gulf Coast from Pensacola and it was definitely in Eastern Time 🤔
The two Canadian hosts were in two different time zones.
I've already lost count so I hope someone else takes up the baton. 🙂
Awwww thank you @Clara116 my love - I treated myself to a blowout this week - it was supposed to be Tuesday, but we had a foot of snow, so my beloved Jessica came Thursday morning. I'm trying to keep both of us - my hairdresser and me - afloat through all this 🙂
@Ann72 I loved surprising you with the CST zone difference. Yes, its crazy and the panhandle where Pensacola lies along 52 miles + of sugar white sandy beaches are fighting patriots often and they pushed back really hard when again 2018 they tried to put us on EST zone. There was a proposal called "The Sunshine Protection Act" to keep us on daylight savings time. PPL here don't like being told anything or much like any sort of change, its not easy OFTEN. (just fyi we had some that went behind bars just last week from their party on Jan 6th if you get my message) Pride is one of the great sins around here for many of us.
Here's a ditty that I found about this time thing from : Greenwich Mean Time
There is an invisible line in the Florida Panhandle where the Eastern time zone bumps into Central time.
People talk about "fast time" and "slow time," fast time meaning Eastern Time and slow time referring to life in the hour-behind Central Time .
On November 18, 1883, at high noon a standardized way of keeping time was instituted throughout North America. Still, many communities resisted the government meddling with clocks and continued telling time by God's own sun.
This helped me understand why I never fit in- I'm for certain on fast time - always have even at birth - I'm told I was kicking and screaming to get out - they tried to keep me in as the doctor hadn't arrived - HA, I'll show you guys - was told I was black and blue from the nurses truly crossing mom's legs and attempting to slow me down....talk about stupid ppl - plus seems I had speed coursing thru my little veins for 9 months as mom didn't want to get "fat".....she had a 23" waist line soon after my birth of 5 lbs. Needless to say, I'm proud of being a fast timer - even when THEY insist on "slow time" I only go along because I have to. 🙂
@Clara116 I'm astonished! I did not know any of this, and as you know I lived down the Gulf Coast in St. Pete for five years - in perfect ignorance! But the way you tell it - now it makes sense! That's a different world, that Panhandle. And I love your take on it. Being different - an outsider not fitting in - that's the plight of the artist. No wonder you've made of your life an art.
So many women did what your mom did - no wonder you wanted out and now seek health and purity - you were in a toxic environment and knew it wasn't for you!
Big hugs back love 😍
Just over 3,000 kms between @Robin4 and myself.
Thank you for thinking of me!!!
I am not in Singapore at the moment, in Norway at the moment. We are now 12,868km away!
Lol! My legs are itchy need to get out of the small little red dot island.
End of this month I will be back in Asia, but to Thailand (the only country that's open right now). So our time difference would be 2 hours! Hope to catch up with you all in the next meet up session.
