Everyone Got Physical At the HangOut Gym

The sweat was pouring off of the clubbers tonight at the HangOut Club, the sexy lycra clothes clung to those well tuned bodies as they grooved in time to the 80s hits as dj Janis served up a storm of tunes to get our pulses racing.  Hangout owner/dj Janis Short had turned the club into a gym with running machines and exercise mats, weights and all sorts.  I can't believe how fit everyone was, no one was out of breath, no one had to sit down and to top it all they played trivia too, so their fingers were getting exercised on those keyboards as well! Congrats to Catriona for getting so many trivia questions right.  Barbie joined us a little later on and she's very clever at trivia too, well done to the pair of them. Well that's my quota of aerobics for this week, I think I'll have a cup of coffee with some chocolate biscuits.......

Happy Birthday Bernie

It was Bernice Galteir's Birthday today and she had a lovely party at Zorro's Tavern to celebrate. The theme for the party was the weather and Rob must have raised the roof on the Tavern to let the rain pour in, as it was lashing down!  People had umbrellas and wellington boots, however Bernie came prepared without needing a rain mac, she was a beautiful mermaid, even bringing her own giant fish bowl to swim around in.  Fibi and I found some little fishes to float around  our heads and Ed said it made him hungry for fish and chips, I later saw him dancing with a shark, I bet that put him right off his supper!  I actually had fish and chips with mayo in my inventory which I got out. To my surprise it was wrapped in the British newspaper The Sun and the headline read  "Freddie Starr Ate My Hamster" (Yes it was a real headline in 13 March 1986).  It was recorded later that the story was fabricated, thankfully for the poor little hamster! 

Dj Janis Short played some brilliant weather associated tunes and also did a smashing job decorating the Tavern for Bernie's Birthday and Zorro's owner Rob made the amazing neon Happy Birthday sign.  Hope you had a great day Bernie!

A Welcome Back For Pamala Clift At The Roadside Philosophers

There was a big welcome back for the leader of the Roadside Philosophers Group, Pamala Clift, today as she gave her first discussion forum after an absence of quite a few months to take a well earned  break.  The group had still being going over the months with some great people leading the discussions like Lyle and Teresa.  I must admit I hadn't been around much in the group either, also one of the members, the lovely feminist who always blamed men for everything, Elizabeth, had died in real life and it was hard to lose such a wonderful character like Elizabeth, she had always been centre stage after Pam at the meetings and was a delight to listen to, even if you disagreed with her.  I missed quite a lot of the discussion today as the real world got in the way, but I joined them for the last three quarters of an hour to hear their views about 'How do you speak to your enemy'  As always, words of wisdom came from each speaker about the subject, they are a fantastic group. I chose not to speak, it seemed inappropriate today, but I would have said first get to know who your enemies are, they may be sitting right next to you and you may not know it. We've been divided and conquered as people have been put into categories of social and cultural groups who have then been deliberately set against each other for political means. Pam, as wise as ever, said at the end of the meeting that those who divide you control you, she is so right, glad you decided to come back Pam, the Philosophers have missed you!
