Hi everyone. I'm on day 1 and wanted to pledge I won't drink over the weekend. This will be a first for me but one step at a time.

Welcome to Weekenders mathmajor, great to see you here. You can do it.

We have logo'd some super swish umbrella panels at work that look similar to Creative Thinker's Avatar. Someone else will be stitching them together.

26C again today, a possible 30C or 86F is forecast tomorrow. Rock on!

Hi guys.
I'm in.
Still too much bothersomeness in my life at the moment.
Just keep focused! And Breath! That's what I keep telling myself.x
Hugs to all and extra ones for Saou and Tetra.
Night xx

Morris dance - Wikipedia

Morris dance is a form of English folk dance usually accompanied by music. It is based on rhythmic stepping and the execution of choreographed figures by a group of dancers, usually wearing bell pads on their shins. Implements such as sticks, swords and handkerchiefs may also be wielded by the dancers.

To use the correct etymology.

Picked up the wife from a work event, she's had a bit to drink. She hardly ever drinks but is downstairs right now dancing to the Police (And singing rather loudly). She's a little bit amusing and irritating at the same time. Oh well, 20 more minutes and she'll be sleeping it off.....
