No one has created a PD chat room yet, though it can easily be done, but almost every evening, beginning at around 10 - 10:30, a small group of two to five people gathers in the "lounge". Most of the chatters are from the TOS forum, for some unfathomable reason, and all of them are wonderful, caring, intelligent, fun people.
On Saturday and Sunday afternoons I have had the luck to meet Steffi and Suffolkchris. We also chatted in the lounge.
I hope you will keep trying, MaryFrances. Don't be discouraged if no one is in - try again....and again. Sooner or later someone will turn up and others will follow.
See you in chat,
