No disrespect intended, but. It occurs to me that what Pink Week really means is that SGs get a respite from competing with Hopefuls. Seven days when they don't have to fight to stay ahead of the curve. Seven days when they can rest on their laurels. It says a lot about the level and quality of Hopeful competition that SGs need to take a...

You are very welcome ❤️ But, not my NEW fav set. This is my first. Stiff competition, etc  😳

May the Fourth be with you. This is the May.

I really enjoyed Star Wars Rebels with the cutest Mandalorian you ever did see. 😍 But it's only now as I watch Ahsoka I realise Sabine Wren is a Suicide Girl. ❤️ We are not alone, the truth is out there, etc 🛸

Happy Imbolc, or however you say it. 🥳

If you're in the northern hemisphere, astronomically February 1 is the first day of Spring. I think we're supposed to light a bonfire and dance around it, hopefully not naked as it's the depth of winter.

Today the UK gives thanks that all those nay-sayers and malcontents rebelled against the tyranny of kings, fleeing our shores to establish democracy in America. And never came back 🤣

@TRAMAIS, sprouts get a bad press but I've always liked them. It seems the secret is not to eat food al dente but to cook it all through properly. When vegetables are soft it releases the sugars and other stuff making them yummy.
