Dr. Wiseman, I have aol and this is just a suggestion! I know when you go to the top of the page and click on chat, then it say create chat room you can make your own chat, i'm really not that great with computers, but i'm wondering that maybe we could do it that way or contact AOL because i believe it covers most major internets. Or on the bottom of the buddy list for now we could have buddy chat just have everyone put in there screen names on this site. Like i said only a suggestiion! love Colette >So here is the challenge: I know there are ways of incorporating chat
