 My ITP has a chat room where different articles are posted and people are free to make their comments..I also noticed that the local newspaper on line site also has the same...If someone doesn't like something they let it be known, so this dialogue goes back and forth..this is what I think a Chat Room represents...

Pat,

One of my more savvy sons told me that "chat room" is a general term for different types of connecting with people online and sometimes the "chat room" depends upon the software a person is using.

What fun you and your husband must have with Skype!   I've been hinting about that to my son overseas, but he hasn't made a move yet!

-Edie

Edie, I was thinking maybe a chat room is like that instant messaging some people do, but I could be wrong.  One of my daughters used to like to talk to me with that years ago on the computer, then she got skype and mailed one to me so we can talk that way since she lives in Cape Cod and doesn't get back to Pa. to see us very often.

Pat,

Call me slow, but I have always thought that the AARP threads such as this one, is a "chat room". No?

Does this website provide for every state?

Sounds like what I need, I moved to this area 3 years ago, and still don't know anything about the area and what it has to offer.

I lived almost 30 years in the last commjunity, raised my 3 kids, so knew it well. It had a lot of outdoor posibilities, and there were plenty of opportunities to be of service.

Unfortunately, my arthritis got so bad I had to move down bu my daughter, her idea and insistance, so momma and I moved here. Never thought to ask about how to get going again, thank you for the url, will definmitely look it up when I can.

Hi Everyone...Jonibee gave you lots of good ideas.  Do you belong to a church which might have a group that visit home-bound people?  What about a senior center?  Our community has a bus that will pick you  up in front of your house and return you home.  They have a lunch program 5 days a week which costs $1 and then they have bingo, a visiting speaker, etc.  You might call your City Hall and see if  your community is connected to an advocate for older people that might offer suggestions in your area.  Could your doctor suggest someone to get in touch with that might direct you? 

I'm sorry, I, too, have never been involved or used a chat room.  I really don't know anything about them.  Did you check to see if AARP has one?  I'm sure you know to be careful about choosing a chatroom.  You don't want to get involved in something that is not above board.  Sally

I too know nothing about "chat rooms"...are they like Face Book? Perhaps  your local library has a volunteer reading to children program or delivering books to the homebound. Check with your local senior group to see if there are any volunteer projects, or the local elementary school might need some help. Some people listen to talk show radio stations and call in with their views or questions..one such radio station is WBZ1030am on your dial. They have good talk shows at mid evening through the early morning hours. Good to listen to, or join in. How about a hobby such as painting, gardening, crosswords, reading (join a group) to what ever holds your interest. Welcome to our front porch..be a joiner contribute and it will come back in the form of new friends.

Meadoes, I can't really address the chat room idea as I was never in one.  The only chatting I have done on the computer was in groups such as this one.  Can you tell us something about chat rooms, I am curious what that is all about.  Sorry to hear that you are alone so much, but it's good you are reaching out to others with the computer.  Sounds like you feel welcome and at home here and hope you will chat with us often.
