Gerdean wrote: In the January listing, you have the lesson on Languishing in Isolation. The Teacher is What-About-Bob, a Cherubim. And throughout the transcript, it is so noted that it is What-About-Bob speaking. And yet, on the header, you have listed the teacher as simply Bob. I am making this point (1) because he always calls himself "What-About-Bob" so we should, too; and (2) there is a teacher out of Colorado by the name of Bob, who is not a cherubim, so they should be differentiated.-Gerdean March 1, 2010 12:52:10 AM EST

Rob wrote: Your point is well taken. While "What About Bob" is listed as his alias as found here, I will put this on my list of changes to make. Would you mind checking the 36 lessons attributed to "Bob" and pointing out the ones that are not from "What About Bob"? It would help me greatly!--rdavis 05:59, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Further, there is something wrong with the transcript dated 2001-12-07. The Butler group had closed by that time. I'll check it out and see what the problem is.-Gerdean March 1, 2010 1:32:14 AM EST

Rob wrote: Thank you Gerdean! Do you know for certain that Daniel has never transmitted What About Bob? Regardless, I will enter these notes in the discussion page for reference when amending the records.--rdavis 06:38, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Gerdean wrote: I cannot speak for Daniel Raphael. Obviously I cannot be certain of anything regarding his work. But each one of those that I pointed out were Daniel Raphael's transmissions. All of What-About-Bob's lessons should have his full name spelled out. Of course, that is my job to do that. Looks like I have some research to do.

Incidentally, when I looked in my snazzy new PDF file for "Procrastination" which is your title for the lesson of 2001-12-07 which cannot exist, I could not find a lesson entitled Procrastination. It being only two paragraphs long, I am inclined to think this came from Mr. Besser's original collection ... many of which he chop-chopped to suit himself. Throw it out, Rob. It is not a full transcript, and the date is wrong.-Gerdean Mar 1, 2010, 1:48 AM

Gerdean wrote: It appears the work is cut out for us - all of us - interested in the legacy to be given to our successors, and the greater cooperation that we can foster, the greater our bequest to those who will come along afterwards. Let's give it our best shot and engage as many as possible "burying the hatchets" of grievances over mistakes, intended or not. Much depends on us in this regard.

I will check with Daniel, and afterwards, make appropriate changes. While I am doing this, perhaps you could use that "snazzy new pdf file" to locate what should be perhaps the record from that session with Tomas. Just to think, there are only 5000+ more documents to examine, and I would be willing to wager there are at least as many we don't even know about, but those will have to until we have become more gracious hosts to God in our fellows, at least more so than hostage to their egos.--rdavis 07:15, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

While checking Gorman, the secondary midwayer's lessons, I discovered that "Lady" has the following lessons attributed to her.

Gerdean, as it seems you are the Tr for these, can you tell us anything about of this personality?

Gerdean wrote:Thu, Apr 18, 2013 at 8:00 PM

"Lady" is What-About-Bob's counterpart. He is a cherubim, she is a sanobim, and they work together.

Rob wrote:Thu, Apr 18, 2013 at 8:41 PM

In that case I have consolidated their sessions together while describing "What About Bob" as a Cherubim/Sanobim pair with What About Bob the Cherubim and Lady the Sanobim. Thanks!

p.s. this correspondence has been entered into the What About Bob's talkpage.
