    Thanks all-  I'm feeling pretty isolated - do video chats sometimes happen?

    You are welcome, @alexcockell.  I'm sorry to hear you are feeling so isolated just now.  It is a really unsure and worrying time for everyone, but hopefully it will be over soon and we can return to normal.  To my knowledge, no, video chats don't happen on the forum, sorry.  However, the Community is a great place to chat and we have lots of good discussions which take place such as talking about our pets, movies, books, hobbies, etc so please join in anything which you find interesting.  Also our virtual Coffee Lounge is a really good place to chat to people to.

    Do you use social media at all or any of the other video chat methods just now for chatting to people?  Please feel free to chat to us anytime as there will always be someone on here to chat to.  :smile:
