Well it gave me a bright idea.
I sent a few emails, and now we have not just Joe McMoneagle, but a
few other RV Oasis interviews lined up, with some people I think you
guys will find quite interesting! (I do, anyway. :-))
By the way, I'd suggested you guys send me questions PEM, but I got
zero PEMs and half a dozen to the list. Maybe I should leave it on
the list (I sent them all through) since apparently that's the
interest, and perhaps it keeps people from wondering if their
question is already in the pool... though I don't want to up the
volume of the list a lot with non-experiential stuff.
I have a list of people in my head I'd love to have the chance for us
to talk with, but we will see over time who will be kind enough to
agree, as I am not offering pay. Right now my main requirement is
that the guest is someone professionally accomplished in their field,
which we assumes relates to psi functioning in some way.
I think the idea of an "RV Oasis Interviews _____" on a regular basis
would be cool!
I also think -- while most members don't post much, granted -- this
group has a great deal of resident insight, intelligence, and RV
experience, so our group could do a pretty good interview series.
There are tons of people out there browsing websites who WISH they
could ask questions and get responses of some of our planned guests,
but given each person is one and the public is innumerable... it
won't happen. So we have an opportunity to explore some cool
people 'on behalf of' a lot of others.
My ideas are along these lines (send feedback if you wish):
1. I'll introduce you to a person I have lined up for a Q&A
interview. I'll tell you something about them and why I've chose
them, something about what they do and have done, so you are able to
come up with some questions. (Members can PEM me with your ideas for
other guests too.)
2. Any member of the group can submit questions, as many as they
want, though I retain rights for the final presentation. (I may or
may not use them all, or may rephrase them, etc.)
3. When the guest has responded and we've cleared up any loose ends
(I may ask a few follow-up questions), I'll write an intro so the
article is finished (introducing the person to the public, linking to
their own media or whatever, and so on).
4. When done, I'll post a private URL (no public links to it) so you
guys can read it first of course, and then later I'll make it public
on the Firedocs RV website, as an ongoing series.
The schedule of these will fluctuate, but I'd like to try for say,
every 3-5 weeks.
The yahoo chat does not work 80% of the time, so my original idea of
having chats every couple of weeks with members is just not very
workable. (Yahoo, of course, could not care less.) I was a little
disappointed about that, as I think real-time talk has its value
too. But this interview series idea cheers me up. :-)

I think it's a great idea. Sorry about not PEMming you the question -
I enjoyed seeing the questions from others. It might be nice to see a
list of prospective interviewees.
Moderator's note: Hi Scott. Well, right now I don't have a list of prospectives
except in my head. I don't want to list them until they've agreed (for reasons I
won't bore you with). I have a short list of some who've agreed (three I've
asked so far have all agreed), but I'd kind of like each one to be a little
surprise as they each come up in their own time. Some of these may not be
familiar to everyone on the list, but I've had the chance to get to know tons of
folks in the last 7 years, and know some who have a valuable history related to
psi functioning and might offer a slightly unique perspective from what we've
all heard (1001 times...) already. I'm glad to hear (_PEM_) anybody else's
suggestions for potential guests, though! -- PJ

Hi, PJ. I have a question for Joe. I'm curious as to how
RV has affected his concept of good and evil over the years.
