    Default Happy Solstice!

    So I'm a wee bit late, but wanted to wish you all a happy Mid-Winter/Summer. To all you already in NZ, cheer up, because the sun is on its way back, and spring is just around the corner.

    On a similar thought, in NZ, shouldn't one dance around the October Pole to celebrate the fertility of summer, and have Halloween in May to celebrate the last of the harvest?

    if you want heat, move to the Southern US. :P It's been horrible here. This is more like August weather, not JUNE, for pete's sake. It was 96* F here the other day. And then we've been getting sooooo much rain, which is bad because it ruins the afternoons that we want to go swimming. :icon_evil:

    It's a lose-lose situation here...I hate the cold wet winters and the long hot summers.

    "Solstice my arse"? Surely you would wait for a full "moon" for that kind of exclamation!

    But yep, its all down hill from here....but look on the brightside, at least, ok, don't look on the bright side!
