MORE clarification on the Silence Issue!
Sorry to hear such comments, which only shows i FAILED to convey my point.....
i am not a musician but play percussion and daff REGULARLI in the artis..... MUSIC, DANCE, SOUNDFUL expressions of emotions (laughter, crying weeping, etc...) ARE FINE + OK + even DESIREABLE.......
my point was/is ONLY the usual CHITCHATTING ="Hello, How are you/ havn't seen you for long! how are you doing? how is your wife/husband? how is.... ?? when did you arrive......?????? AND IN A LOUD VOICE , as in a cafe!
Clear enough, i HOPE SO!
PLEASE forget about the 'rule', it is VERY SIMPLE COMMON sense, IF you see it in the context of 'THE HUB'!!!!!
