Lobby Guidelines

You've made it through the revolving doors and now you can mingle and mill about. If you feel like spamming, please head down the hall to the right to the RecRoom. But, if you'd like to meet people, chat about nothing in particular, you know...have polite conversation that doesn't seem to fit easily into any of the other rooms, this is the place!

The Lobby is not for serious debates, there are other areas for those types of conversations. It is more for relaxed chatting or discussing things that don't fit elsewhere. Politics, religion and philosophy have their own place on the site

But remember, always play by the rules: here

  • Interview with an active father

    There's a really fantastic short interview on local radio with my brother, talking about being a father. Here's a picture of him with his two girls.

    You can hear the interview (12.5 minutes) here: Story Box #565 - Graeme From Lambton - 12 August 2014, and you can read Graeme's blog post about it at Being a father.

    Graeme is my younger brother, and also my personal hero. He's a truly amazing person. The interview shows him to be articulate and thoughtful and well prepared to look at the issues of being a father. I can tell you he lives out everything he says as well.

    The radio interview is a fun idea as well... it's called the "Story Box". It's a series of "blind interviews". The story box itself is a wooden box containing a telephone. Every morning, radio host Aaron Kearney calls the phone and asks who ever answers to tell their story. That's it. Who ever has the box simply passes it on to someone else. Anyone. There's no control. And the chain has continued unbroken for two years, with Graeme telling story #565.

    It's a really positive, thoughtful and encouraging interview, full of joy and enthusiasm for families. Enjoy!

    Cheers -- sylas

      You have to sign up? I presume that is for the audio file. Sorry... I didn't realize. Maybe it can tell I am local and makes overseas people subscribe? I just hit the play button and got it immediately.

        No, no - I'm in a restaurant and can't use my speakers, that's all. Sorry for the confusion.
