No, London is next week. I brought up meeting in person before:

But there seemed to be either not much interest or too much ambivalence. Should we just forget it?

Dr Bob, I would love to meet you in London. Meant to contact you earlier.
Could you have my tickets waiting for me at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport?
Look forward to seeing you.

Dr. Bob,

If you come to Southern California sometime, I think it would be great to meet you and other babblers.

I would love to meet you but my grey matter isn't ready for the outside world on my own yet as my pdoc and I are juggling with meds - what a picture that conjures up in my head ,literally.

It's been raining here so bring your waterproofs.

BTW, I don't think of meeting me as the main attraction, my being in town is just an excuse for those of you in the area to meet each other. So there should be at least a couple of you...

FYI, *not* to pressure anyone or anything, it looks like it would need to be Wednesday, maybe at lunchtime or early afternoon? If not, that's fine, maybe next time...

Pleased your enjoying your stay. It'll have to be next time Bob.

Have fun try and get on the London eye ride if it's in operation.

It's been an interesting meeting, the weather's been great, it's easy to get around -- and everyone's so well-behaved: I love how on the escalators, people who stand stay on the right, so people who want to walk can go by on the left. :-)

> Well it would be nice to meet you for a coffee some place onw ednesday...

OK, this meeting's way out at ExCeL, at the Custom House tube stop on the Docklands Light Railway line. But we need at least one more person...


> Hullo, Dr Bob and Nikki - can you tell me, have you actually arranged to meet up in London on Wednesday?

Not yet, but I think I could be free at 4, or maybe 2. I thought lunch would work, but I just found out today about a meeting at 12:30...


> Have fun try and get on the London eye ride if it's in operation.

What's the eye ride? Don't think I've heard of it...

It's a huge wheel with carriages that turns very slowly for about 30 mins, great for seeing the whole of London from above(so I've been told)
Can't recall where around London it is but it's well known and visible.

Enjoy!

Ah, OK, I've heard of that, an old-fashioned Ferris wheel, where your ride is a single slow revolution. I'll look for it, thanks for the tip! :-)

Hullo, Dr Bob. Can I ask you, did you meet up with anybody yesterday, like Nikki? I would have love to have met up with you and some others, but unfortunately I couldn't take time off yesterday. What are you doing tomorrow (Friday)? Anything exciting? How long are you over here for? (Sorry to bombard you with all these questions! But I'm sure the others would like to know too.)

There for a week, thankfully got back before disaster struck... Didn't meet up with anyone. Didn't get to "fly" the London Eye, but did see it. Also came across a webcam of it (unfortunately not *from* it):

http://www.camvista.com/england/london/bale.php3?pageMode=nonjava

Found some nice restaurants, went to a lot of theater. Queued up in intermittent drizzle for 3 hours (but had my laptop, so worked when it was dry) for a floor cushion for the final performance of the Tragedy of Hamlet -- and it was worth it. Went to Blue/Orange, about a patient on a psychiatric unit. Saw Big Ben, went to Evensong at Westminster Abbey. Walked around Covent Garden and through the British Museum and the Tate Modern. English bacon and black pudding, yum. Took the Tube everywhere, it was so convenient. Had a great time! :-)

Thank you for your post, Dr. Bob. I'm really glad you enjoyed yourself over here... but sorry none of us locals came up to visit you! Maybe next year, if you're planning another visit...?

Kind regards

Dr. Bob-
You ought to announce all your travel destinations
and get the scoop from locals on where to stay and what to do. For instance, if you ever come here to St. Louis, I would recommend an opulent
bed-and-breakfast in a turn-of-the-century mansion that wouldn't cost any more than a boring hotel. Wonderful dining, and it's supposed to be haunted. How cool is that?

Very cool! Any tips on Washington, DC? Or interest in trying again to get together in person?

BTW, I'm supposed to say something there about: (1) how aware patients in online support groups are of the various online ethics and quality initiatives, (2) to what extent those initiatives influence their use of online resources, (3) what other methods they use to decide whom to trust, and (4) the ethics of facilitating such groups.

Any comments on any of the above? (Remember, these are comments I might present.)

Bob
