A Date For Your Diary - 1 September 2019

We are going to run another conference round-table voice/video chat using Skype.

When? - Sunday 1 September at the following times:
  • Los Angeles 8:00 am, 
  • Denver 9:00 am
  • Dallas 10:00 am, 
  • New York 11:00am, 
  • London 4:00 pm 
  • Paris 5:00 pm etc.  
Do not worry if you aren't available at the start of one of the session as it lasts 1-2 hours, so pop up when you are available and say hello.

Where? - an on-line chat using Skype. with voice and video (if you wish). Please make sure you have the latest version of Skype.

What do I need? - just a micro-phone and some head phones(in ear phones work fine) and a free Skype account. Using headphones or earphone reduces 'echo' on the call. Video is optional, but a few of us will be on video as well.

Who - All of you... connect up with Philofaxy and we will attempt to get as many of us linked in to the audio conference as possible. Come and listen if you don't want to chat.  What do we talk about? Filofax stuff... but anything else as well. It's like long lost friends meeting up for coffee and a catch up.. but don't worry if you have never joined in before... you are an old friend too!

If you have any questions you want to ask then please let us know in the group or before we start.

How -
  1. Connect to Philofaxy by firstly searching for Philofaxy in Skype, I will then add you as a contact.
  2. Then  'Send Contact Request',  I will then add you in to the chat room. 
  3. Then if you request it, I can add you to the audio conference as well. But if you just want to chat via keyboard that's fine. That way it's slightly less hectic for me!  
Come and join in the fun, even if you only pop in to say hello... but don't be afraid to join in the discussion.

If you need any assistance setting up Skype, please pop a comment in this post and I will try and help you get one line. Skype is free for computer to computer calls....

Here is my post on how to improve your Skype audio with headphones or a headset.

Hope to be chatting with you on Sunday 1 September 2019.

Free For All Friday No 563 by Laurie

The school year is up and running, and we are all trying to get used to being back in the busy routine of early mornings and after school activities. I keep several pages in my Filofax that are family-related to help me keep everything organized.

I keep printouts of my kids' class schedules, so that if I need to make them a doctor or dentist appointment during school time I can have them miss gym instead of math class. I also keep a schedule of after school activities so I know who is doing what and when, and if I or my husband are picking up on which days. And I have printed out the school's calendar showing which days are half days and which days there is no school, for easy reference. I have (of course) written these dates into my planner pages, but when my husband texts me to ask when he should take off work for spring break (for example) or when the kids have a long weekend, I can take a quick glance at the page and let him know easily.

Do you have school-related pages (for yourself or your kids) in your Filofax?

And as always on Fridays, feel free to discuss and/ or ask anything ring-binder organizer related!

Happy Friday everyone!

Filofax Price List 1985 - Chisholms

Chisholms is a shop I used to visit quite often back in 1985-88 when I was a 'first time Filofax user'.

Sadly I don't think Chisholms are still in business. 103 Kingsway is now a travel management company, that was the store I used to go to. 63-66 Hatton Garden is now the address of a various jewellery businesses.
