Where’s a goddammed parking space

Rock the Fauci

Hoping this is one of many favourites that will be back soon…

Adding to my Virtual Meeting Bingo card in the last 24 hours
Starleaf Cloud and Swoogo with a couple of Zoom meetings, a Goto Meeting, and a Webex.
Next step, I really need a live updating histogram with meetings by provider

You think social media would be more civil if you made people cut out their anonymous notes from magazines like the old days?

So in the Isolation Game – last 24 hours of conference calls have been MS Teams, Webex, BlueJeans, Old fashion PSTN conference call, and GoToMeeting. Anyone got a Zoom meeting I can join before my next Webex in an hour?

My latest EDC addition from a local BC company. Had to sit on the waiting list for awhile. But the only thing I can think of that says “Made in BC”
