Rush: Good evening, Matt!
Rush: Welcome back!
Matt1: Hello Rush!
Rush: How was your week?

Rush: I was just watching a movie on TCM with Victoe Sen Yung in it.
Rush: “Woman on the Run.”
Rush: Sounds like you had the boat to yourselves!
Matt1: Worth adding it to a watch list?
Matt1: We actually enjoyed it so much we booked a two week cruise for next year
Rush: It looks good. A noir film from 1950, set in San Francisco with lots of great location shots.
Rush: I am recording the rest to see later.
Rush: WOW! Nice, Matt!
Matt1: Was Victor a lead?
Rush: Where did this cruise go?
Rush: Not a lead.
Rush: Plays a dance studio owner.
Matt1: Caribbean….Private Island in Bahamas and Och Rios, Bahama’s, Jamacia and Cozumel
Rush: Beautiful part of the world!
Matt1: It was much needed after COVID
Rush: Someday we may try a cruise.
Matt1: I was going to log in last week, but lost track of time. Egypt is one of my favorites
Rush: That would’ve been fun!
Rush: To have Matt at Sea join in!
Matt1: Get ready for this….We’re seriously considering a retirement cruise in Jan 2025….111 Days!
Rush: What a cruise THAT would be! Around the world?
Matt1: I think we’re doing it.
Matt1: Yes, around the world
Mike n Rachel in DC has joined this room
Rush: Mike and Rachel!
Matt1: Hello M & R!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Retirement? Cruise?
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hello gentlemen!
Rush: Hello, Sir!
Rush: How was your week?
Rush: (plural, of course!)
Mike n Rachel in DC: It was good. We spent most of the week at a conference…it was good.
Rush: In your area?
Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes, Baltimore. It was the Eastern division of the College Band Directors Nat’l Association (I’m the national VP)
Matt1: Inner Harbor?
Rush: Really! NICE!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Some of my former students presented papers and one of the bands from my school played
Mike n Rachel in DC: It was at Peabody (conservatory)
Rush: I have heard of it.
Rush: Very good!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Rachel went to school there, so it was old home week for her!
Mike n Rachel in DC: It’s one of the big conservatories in the US
Matt1: Very nice
Mike n Rachel in DC: Now Mike has a big conducting workshop and concert at school this week and Rach is back to work. 🙂
Mike n Rachel in DC: This is a hectic time. But an evening of Chan is the perfect way to get a little happy time. 🙂
Rush: I would agree!
Rush: Good one tonight!
Rush: “Charlie Chan in Shanghai.”
Mike n Rachel in DC: One of my favorites
mda19083 has joined this room
Mike n Rachel in DC: But I agree, Matt, Egypt is a beauty.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hi MDA
Matt1: Hello MDA!
mda19083: greetings all
Rush: The more I think about it, this is probably Charlie Chan heading back to Honolulu from Egypt vis Shanghai.
Rush: Greeting to YOU, MDA!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Rush, have you ever run across “The annotated Sherlock Holmes” books?
mda19083: hope everyone is well this evening
Rush: Yes, Mike.
Mike n Rachel in DC: I love the idea of doing that with the Chans…your website is almost that, in fact.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Was that the inspiration?
Rush: Lou and I have mentioned that in the past.
Rush: It would be great if one could come out in 2025 somehow for the 100th anniversary.
Mike n Rachel in DC: I’ve loved those books for decades. Yes, it would be so great to have a little “guidebook” to follow along with the films.
Rush: The biggers stories, being set in actual locales, would offer much material for annotation!
Rush: And the films to…yes!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Exactly. Hey, Matt. Are you taking Dr. Sudemann’s world tour?
mda19083: an annoted chan would be great – i have a collection of “annotated” books – Sherlock Holmes – Frankenstein – Dracula
Matt1: No, Via Princess Cruises Ft Lauderdale….Saves airfare
Rush: You are located perfectly for those cruises, Matt!
mda19083: also annotated Christmas Carol by Dickens – the annotated editions really put things in perspective
Matt1: 3.5 hour drive, so not too bad
Rush: I have an annoteted “Casey at the Bat.”
Rush: Typos flowing from my fingertips already!
mda19083: attended a Sherlock Holmes Zoom event yesterday – and put in a good word for the Chan Chat Room
Rush: TYSM, MDA!
Matt1: Thats awesome
Mike n Rachel in DC: What kind of Holmes zoom?
mda19083: no one was aware of it
mda19083: Legion of Zoom out of Texas
Rush: Louise mentioned the possibility of us doing a CC zoom sometime.
Rush: She has an account that would allow for a lengthy session.
Matt1: I think that would be cool
mda19083: 4 speakers ran about 2 hours – much fun
Rush: She said that we could share the film of the night via zoom.
Rush: Who knows?
Mike n Rachel in DC: So do I. (Chan Zoom). My university account would work, too, I think.
Rush: This could lead to something.
mda19083: the technology makes it all possible
Matt1: I’d have to shower
Mike n Rachel in DC: Right…share screen the film and type in the chat. (Camera off, Matt). LOL
Matt1: Talk about being on your best behavior!
mda19083: M n R – I used the camera off option – no need to even comb my hair
Matt1: I’d bring a tin can though!
mda19083: Matt 🙂
Rush: Maybe we could have an actual bucket!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Exactly, MDA. Now when one is teACHING on Zoom…gotta look good at least from the waist up.
Matt1: Rush has got to have a Gong?
Rush: I would think that Mike and/or Rachel might have access to one!
Matt1: Heck, we can bring our own sound effects!
Matt1: The possibilities
Mike n Rachel in DC: We could have several, Rush. Chinese, Balinese…
Mike n Rachel in DC: gong, tam-tam…
Mike n Rachel in DC: Wuhan, Sabian, Ludwig
mda19083: sounds like fun
Rush: Sounding good, matt!
Rush: I mean…MIKE…
Mike n Rachel in DC: brb…bread in oven… 🙂
Rush: regarding the gong(s)!
Rush: 19 minutes…
Rush: We could also share impromptu “extras” via zoom.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Rach and I could do a session on gongs some evening…hehe
Rush: If anyone has anything to share, that could be done.
Louise has joined this room
Louise: Hi Chan Clan!
Rush: M/R…sounds good!
Rush: Good evening!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Right, Rush. We could type in the chat, but could also talk.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey Louise!
mda19083: hello louise
Rush: How are you tonightZ?
Matt1: Hello Louise!
Louise: I see you are all talking about a possible Zoom session
Rush: WEe were just talking about possible zoom chats.
Rush: I expressed your idea.
Louise: Crazy week here. Sorry I couldn’t get to the website, Rush. Later this week, I think.
Rush: Sounds fine, Louise!
Rush: I figured you were busy!
Louise: I doo Zoom sessions every week, often with one of our art interest groups. People have gotten used to it.
Mike n Rachel in DC: And Rush, Zoom chats are recordable. There could be archives made easily!
angel noodle w/peking fox has joined this room
Louise: And they have gotten used to me telling the: could you please turn your phone sideways!
Rush: Didn’t know that that would be possible, Mike!
Matt1: Hello A & F!
Rush: Angel…and FOX!
Louise: Yes, the host can record them.
angel noodle w/peking fox: M & R: Archives featuring FOX? Ready for closups, Mister DeMille!!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hello ANPF!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hope Peking Fox isn’t the same as Peking Duck…
Rush: For possible zoom chats, i could use my work laptop for now.
angel noodle w/peking fox: Louise, if there was a Rosemary Woods Chan, could she erase the recordings?
Louise: Just to keep tpa Chan them, I am drinking Sarsaparilla tea. Always have to look at the label to spell it correctly.
Rush: My present screen has no camera built-in.
angel noodle w/peking fox: LOOK FOR THE UNION LABEL
Louise: Yiles, I got the tea correct and typoed all the rest!
Louise: Ah, Rush, trhat makes it harder
Mike n Rachel in DC: Camera not necessary for Zoom, Rush. Nice, but not necessary
Rush: Yes, I have done zoom that way at times.
Rush: Makes one feel “incognito” to a degree!
Louise: related to nothing here, I am researching the theft of morning dew by Polish witches. That sounds like a joke but they killed then for doing it!!!
Rush: 11 minutes…
Mike n Rachel in DC: What century Louise?
Rush: I have never heard of that, Louise!
Louise: 17th to 18th centuries
Rush: I had to read it twice to make sure I was getting it!
Rush: Was the “theft” that the dew didn’t happen?
Louise: I know, Rush. Sounds weird, right?
Mike n Rachel in DC: Was this a “burning at the stake” kind of offense?
Louise: So now I have gone down the rabbit hole of devices for dew collection and it is actually a thing
Rush: 9 minutes…
Louise: Yes, M&R
