    WoW! That was a great dance-- what a band, what a caller, what a crowd! Plenty of new folks, and a lot of my very favorite dancers. I danced every one, grinning all night long. I can't wait til next time.

    The never-ending dance party!!!! Last night was such a blast!!!! We had a wonderful turnout of dancers, newbies and veterans, dancing to the high-energy music of Common Ground!!!! These kids from the Palo Alto area are phenonmenal--I'm a fan!!!! We started the evening with a potluck and some 50 people for it -- and so much great food!!!! Then the music started and nobody wanted it to end, including the band -- they played two ending waltzes and a polka!!! Just a fabulous group of musicians who travel heavy -- the quantity of instruments they played -- wow!!! Then Derya (the fiddler) did Irish step dance to the beat of the music -- such great, talented musicians -- and enthusiastic about what they're doing!!!! I can't wait to have them back again!!!!

    One of the best get togethers yet! Great food, and such a variety. Then there was the band and caller! WOW!! Absolutely a kicker of a night. When it came time to end the evening, both dancers and the band wanted to keep going, so "just one more" dance would happen! A group of us went out afterwards, yes, we were too amped to just go home! Had a snack and conversed about the amazing evening. Robin Welch donated a hand made jade and multi stone necklace that was won by Nancy of Santa Cruz. Then there were the two chocolate mousse pies, created by Catherine! Yes, I won one! YUM! We must have had over 80mpeople last night. What a great community we have. Thank you to: Common Ground, our Bay Area band and caller! Now, off to work!
