Welcome to the Saturday #checkIn for October 26
Saturday is a day of the weekend, and this checkin day may chatter away in any direction. Meet at this virtual café, put aside your chores for a post or more, and settle for a moment if you can. In the meantime, help yourselves at the bar. Maybe while you wait observe the new, virtual World Stroke Day poster
I put up. Not giving any specific question of the day, but turn this around to you. Did you miss a topic? Did I omit the one urgent, overdue, boring, inspiring trope or phenomenon that you feel needs to be talked about? Then raise it, if you may. I'll take a small bicycle tour in a bit, enjoy some sunshine this afternoon. You take a seat, and I'll see if I can hand out pixel drinks later.
Or, since this is the internet, we may all be regularly swamped by #caturday
cat gifs, and funny cat images - share your best of here. 😄 Or your own cat pics. (Bunnehs deemed acceptable.) Since today also is howl at the moon day
, dog lovers might have their fidos chime in acoustically. 😜
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

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