The gtstoogies are celebrating the changing of the seasons this week with a BBQ.
The Topiary Tessellation Bird Leaf Tree for all seasons has been brought out and Jen E Wren is discussing the Australian Rules Football Grand Final game with Magpie who is hoping that Collingwood (the Magpies) will win. (Jo and Sprite prefer Geelong -the Cats but they were eliminated by Collingwood)
Intellectual Dabrowski is discussing climate change with Native American Indian Dog. Australian Cattle Dog was drawn by the wonderful aromas wafting from the BBQ and Imaginational Dabrowski was thinking about how the Americans are having Autumn leaves at the same time as the Australians are having Spring blossoms and new leaves and how BBQ food tastes good in either season.
Preparations are under way for the gtstoogies’ luau on the beach.
The Twitter birds are practicing their hula dancing.
Sensual Dabrowski is sheltering from the sun while Psycho Motor, Emotional and Intellectual play with a giant shape collage beach ball and Imaginational ponders the pictures in the flames of the camp fire.
Arachnid is surfing the web and performing the duties of an E.B. White Charlotte Foundation Pig Protection Assoc. member.
There was no need to dismantle the geodesic dome after the #gtstoogies gathering. I found that Sprite (accompanied by Pugnacious Loyola) had claimed it for herself. She had set up her lap top and helped herself to an extra large fruit smoothie drink and was happily reading the transcripts of the #gtchat sessions ‘Can creativity be taught?’ and ‘Blogging 4 Gifted: Best Sites/Practices’ at http://wthashtag.com/transcript.php?page_id=8668&start_date=2010-09-10&end_date=2010-09-10&export_type=HTML
Arachnid was busy with web design for a new domain and Caramel Cat had regained dignity and decorum and was sleeping off the effects of the Paws for Poise cyber dog grooming parlour experience.
“You will have to update your list of blogs on Gifted Resources website! “ Sprite told me “There are lots of great blogs mentioned here in the transcript!”
“Already done!” I said. “You can read my updated collection of blogs at http://www.giftedresources.org/gr/webgifblogs.htm
Due to difficulties with Twitter last week, the second #gtchat discussion “Can creativity be taught?” was postponed until this week.
The #gtstoogies who hold a creative virtual feast with general chatter and much laughter before and after #gtchat will continue the spa and vegetarian feast theme of last week.
A few extras have been added for this week. The pizza oven and icy desserts fridge have been brought out again. A bird bath has been installed for the Twitter birds and a geodesic dome has been constructed to house the spa bath.

The Australian taste tester dogs arrived and the three small dogs enjoyed their pamper session. But Australian Cattle Dog said he had only come to say that he and Australian Kelpie were too busy with herding work to have a pamper session at the moment.
So Intellectual Dabrowski, Native American Indian Dog and Australian Cattle Dog ‘pawsed’ for a brief conference to organize a working dog pamper session complete with remedial massages.
Before they could set a new time for the working dog pamper session Australian Kelpie arrived complete with the flock of sheep he had been moving.
In the ensuing chaos La Souris managed to hide under the Paws for Poise bus, Australian Kelpie managed to direct one of the sheep into the Paws for Poise Parlour and Psycho Motor Dabrowski managed to direct Caramel Cat into the Paws for Poise Parlour!
Next to visit the Paws for Poise Parlour for their pamper session were the Italian and Greek dogs
Then the Mexican and Indian taste testers came.
They were followed by the contingent of taste testers from China.
Next to come to the Paws for Poise cyber dog grooming parlour bus for pampering were the German taste tester dogs.
Caramel Cat was trying to retrieve La Souris which had escaped to avoid being dipped in the chocolate fountain and PsychoMotor Dabrowski was in hot pursuit of both of them
