    Thank you Carol. That was a lot of fun. Wish we could have been there longer. That would be a good one to do at someones house. Toga and potluck. Great food and company. Loved the togas!

    The patio would have been best to start the party, but at least we ended up there.

    If Cruisers encourages naked druids, then I definitely want to be there.

    OK, folks. CRUISERS' Bar On Horizon has agreed, tentatively, to allow our group to party on their patio. We are free to bring food for the potluck, but I imagine we'll be buying beer & drinks fm the establishment. I'll post further info when I receive it. And remember, games & prizes will be provided, so put on your party hats, aka laurel wreaths, & let's celebrate the beginning of SUMMER!

    If Stonehenge is anything to go by, summer celebrations have a millennia-old history. While the ancient druids may have commemorated the fertility of the season, many of us are just happy to get outdoors.

    In a lot of cultures, the solstice -- officially the longest day of the year -- marks the start of summer. In Scandinavia, where it's known as Midsummer, it is one of the biggest holidays on the calendar. The day is celebrated with copious amounts of herring, vodka, singing, and a dance around the maypole. Throughout much of Europe, it's referred to as St. John's Day, and is honored with bonfires and dancing, and in some cases, a naked sprint across town. *
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    *Dancing naked at midnight with the drunken druids is optional. Hope to see you there.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
