    Looking forward to sitting late this evening. Hopefully my 2-year old will go to bed easy. He has acquired this habit of not wanting to sleep in his crib at night. :cry:

    Gassho,

              Yes, thank you to Jundo and to all for sitting, past, present and future.

              I'll share a laugh with you.... on Friday evenings I sit at Great River Zendo from 530-615 PM - tonight I drove home to make the 700 PM zazenkai, due to snow and ice was delayed a bit; but made it. This type of scheduling and dedication on Friday nights used to be reserved for pub crawling!

              I am glad for it - a bow of gratitude!

                    Well I was going to sit with Justin.tv on my iPad but it doesn't work since Justin has flash. I downloaded the iPhone app ( there is not one for the iPad) but Treeleaf still doesn't come up. Has anyone gotten Justin to work on an iPad?

                    Gassho,

                          I had an exceptionally hard time loading this today (20 minutes to buffer 3!) so I sat the one Hans did last month. The lower resolution videos work a lot better for me.

                          But . . . I did watch a bit of the beginning and still feel I sat with you all whenever, wherever.

                            Justin on the iPad only shows live shows and not archives. There is an app that will show flash (Justin archives) but the name escapes me at the moment.
