Sailargh Beltane/May Day-How do you celebrate? (128* d) RE: Beltane/May Day-How do you celebrate? 01 May 07


Wow. As a sailor, navigator, radio guy and former flight service specialist I know all about standard time, time zones and such. However it's much neater to read this and realise that while you've acknowledged May Day already there's still a quarter of an hour 'til our day turns and I'll be getting under five hours kip before rising to put the coffee on.

More will be following us I guess, not many but the possibility for a few, the folks down under having been ahead of you.

In Victoria, B.C. we have three Morris sides which have as our happy responsibility a gathering down at Clover Point. We erect a non-ribboned May pole and dance the sun up. Ah! Just remembered we've entered the 21st century (CE) and it's now all on-line:

Thanks Ric, I think.

Okay, kit's laid out - check (that's a first!)
Coffee's ground - check (sigh, in the interest of ensuring I have any at that hour)
Breakfast contribution is ready - check (Rice Krispy Sq. - don't laugh, been years since I made em. Can you say 'batch-o-lure'?)
'Stuff' for the coffee too - check (I'm not driving, the musos are)
Alarm is set - check

G'night, see you in May.
Bright Blessings
