Off Topic but Important: STATUS CHECK and GROUP HUG for all POI fans

Hi All:  There has been so much turmoil going on around the world lately that I wanted to check in to see how you are all doing.  We have members from all over the world.  There has been some crazy political turmoil, violence, and now severe weather, hurricanes and earthquakes that have affected so many people.  If you feel like leaving a status check here, I'd love to hear how you are all doing.  Or if you'd rather chat privately, send me a PM here, or on Twitter or Facebook. I've kind of given up on Tumblr so I'm rarely there anymore.

As far as my situation goes, my family and I are very fortunate and safe.  My elderly mother, sister, brother-in-law and their 4 cats (!!) safely evacuated from Miami Beach on Tuesday, landing in a suite hotel that takes pets located in Tallahassee.  While still in Florida, hopefully they are far enough north in the state to escape the wrath of Hurricane Irma which is expected to make landfall in South Florida on Saturday-Sunday.

The poisonous political turmoil here in the U.S. for the past year or so has affected me greatly, and I have been obsessing about it on social media (particuarly twitter).  I still miss POI desperately, and it remins my "safe haven" and safety blanket for my other social media obsession. 

Sending you all a HUGE GROUP HUG, as well as lots of good thoughts and prayers.

*waves* Hello everyone !

Big hugs and positive thoughts for everyone who has been or may be affected by one of those terrifying storms.

In case anyone would be inclined to resume the rewatch program, I'm back and should be available tomorrow night. :-)

I've missed you all !

I've missed you guys too! Since we didn't really plan a formal rewatch for this week, let's just meet up at 9 or 10 tonight and have a chat and possibly an impromptu rewatch of some eppy. Then I'll post a formal resumption of the chat schedule starting next week. Hope to chat tonigyt!

Reese and Finch - ALWAYS

Hey all, as usual (thank God) not much is happening in New Zealand. We have an election campaign under way with several fairly sane alternatives to choose from and the weather is finally turning toward spring. This means plenty of rain just like winter, but at least the days are longer, the temperatures warmer and the daffodils are out.
 
I left my job a few weeks ago overwhelmed with stress, so I am back to being available most times to chat. I'd love to go back to watching POI together and chatting - preferably going back to the start when it was just John, Harold, Joss and Lionel together! This also gives me time to obssess over US politics. I even took out a subscription to the 'failing' Washington Post to facilitate this, LOL.
 
My thoughts and prayers are with you all in the States and elsewhere. Big hugs to everyone!

Prayers and thoughts go out for all those in the paths of these terrible hurricanes.  I know we have several members who live in the Caribbean, so I hope they are safe in the area of devastating Irma.  My brother's ex-wife and his grown daughter live in Houston.  They had a few rough days two weeks ago, but are all fine now.
 
As for me, I retired in July after twenty plus years in academic administration.  I've taken my love for writing in a new direction, trying my hand at writing original mystery fiction.  Who knows where I'll go with this, but I'm immersed in world building for a new set of characters, with my fondness for POI's moody noir thriller atmosphere still getting a good workout.  Stay tuned!  Probably my obsession with this new set of characters is my way of escaping temporarily from the ugly real world dangers of our present political situation here in the U.S.
 
 I just watched "Root Cause" on WGN this afternoon and I'm amazed at how engaging and exciting those season one episodes still are.  POI, I just can't quit you!

Hi. This is the first time I've been home since 8-23. We've been doing high water rescues and patrolling for looters all over South Texas and Florida. Last year I got trained in high water rescues and now I'm very experienced in them. My house is destroyed but my family and cats are ok. I've been wanting to get new furniture anyway, so it's all good. Now I'm going to sleep for about a week. See you all later.

Hey Ghost! I've been wondering about you. Sorry to hear about your house. Glad that at least your family and cats are ok. That's the most important.

Thumbs up for your hard work helping and rescuing! Sleep tight!

I've slowly started to rejoin the world a bit lately.    Guess I'll put out the Yule lights and send out cards this year, for example.
I've missed you all and think I will visit here more often.   Just tonight started to rewatch POI again, and wow I still love it.   Amazing show.
Peace,
Kim Or
