Welcome to the Tuesday #Checkin for October 1
Simple pleasures today - I took an early morning walk with the holiday dog, nicknamed "fluffnutter" by one of you. :) Friends are on holiday, I’m not. What is a breeze in summer, walkies in the early morning before temperatures go above 30C (85F) outside, is almost
equally good in today’s sucky rainy cold #Berlin
weather at 9C (<50F) just after 6am. Dog’s happy, so am I. No more than half an hour, simple as that. Back for breakfast at 6:45am.
Dog at hand or not, what is your go to simple pleasure? How do you brighten you day, with a simple task, sight, activity? Or chat? Bring up anything you like, carry over previous discussions to today's post, or just say hi. We love to hear from you!
It’s a longstanding daily tradition started by Lawrence (LD) Williams on g+. Peeps throughout the world check in to mingle. It’s been likened to what folks do around a water cooler, on a front porch or at a cafe-bar, but online. If pressed for time just wave (like) as you run/fly/swim by. You’ll always be seen and appreciated.
is a daily post-thread where regulars and visitors alike come to chat, as the sun travels through all time zones.
When consumer G+'s sun set, the original checkin (hosted by LD) seamlessly reappeared at MeWe. Pluspora’s checkin also began not long after. #CheckIn
is a convenient neighbourhood place where regulars and visitors alike know they can go to chat with familiar friends or with friends they haven’t met yet, as the sun travels through all time zones.
Pluspora CheckIn was initially set up by Su Ann Lim with LD Williams’s help. #Newhere
? Think of CheckIn as your virtual local corner establishment where you may know, and get to know, many of the regulars. I’m @Carsten Raddatz (劉愷恩), this week’s moderator at the #Checkin

is now hosted by a round robin team:
@Carsten Raddatz (劉愷恩) (Germany, GMT+2)
@Cass M (Canada, GMT-6)
@Nathan Weaver (USA, GMT-5)
@Su Ann Lim (Canada, GMT-7)

Heartfelt thanks to @Dave Sutton for creating the 3D Pluspora Checkin GIF, and for the use of it. ❤️
