The second series of After Life, written by and starring Ricky Gervais, comes to Netflix on April 24th.  Assuming it follows the same format as the first season, this means it will include 6 episodes.

We’ll be watching the first two episodes on April 24th, the next two on April 25th and the final two on April 26th.  Netflix Party allows you to syncronize your viewing and opens a chat box on the side so you can make comments to each other as you watch.

If would be a good idea to watch the first season on Netflix prior to joining, as this is a continuation of the storyline. The first season is available on netflix.

To join these parties you will require:
1) Google Chrome Browser on a laptop or PC
2) A netflix membership
3) Netflix Party download : https://www.netflixparty.com/

The party link invite will be posted on our website about 30 minutes beforehand.   You will need to click on the red NP icon beside the address bar to join a party after clicking on the party invite link.

SUNDAY MARCH 22  at 7:00PM

Grab a cup of coffee or tea at home, sit down with your laptop or phone and join us for a virtual coffee meetup online.

After some research, looks like we’ll test out JITSI this weekend for our first virtual coffee meetup. You don’t need to have an account, only need a link to follow so it’s easier than both google hangouts (as you need a gmail) and discord (as you need an account).

We’ll post the link for the meetup 30 minutes before it goes live both on our facebook page and on our website. ”SEE” you on Sunday!

If you want to join from your phone you will need to download their app, but from a laptop this is not a requirement.

Virtual Coffee Night

Social distancing helps to slow the rate a disease spreads, and the sooner it’s started, the better for everyone.   Our healthcare system won’t be overwhelmed if we spread the growth out over a longer period of time, and many more people then can recieve care in order to recover.

Because our events are non-essential but also in very public places, we will be cancelling them for the rest of the month (and we will review after that time – we may possibly be postponing the AGM by a month as well) so we can help to “flatten the curve”.    Events hosted by the Secular Humanists and Westwood Unitarian will be updated if we hear from them.  For right now we are cancelling SEA hosted events.

This may seem like a hasty decision to some, seeing as only large events have been cancelled in our province so far, but with many cases still waiting for test results it’s a time of uncertainty as to how many actual cases there are here right now.   We have a few members who fall into some higher risk categories, so taking a few weeks off of some social events seems like one small thing we can do to help protect them, and our larger community as a whole.

For advice if you have flu like symptoms and think you may have been exposed, call 811.   Call volumes are high, but trying at midnight has been a suggestion.
