Aw thank you, guys!

My partner gave me a card which says my cake has no candles on it, because it might affect global warming in a bad way.... :jawdrop:
Swine!! :pig:

This is as good a time as any to tell you all:

The man has proposed.

I'm making the appointment with the registrar today, and I'll let you all know when the (other) big day will be! :toast:

Happy Birthday Fede! :group:
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

Happy Birthday and congratulations! :smile:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

Hey Fede,
When you said to me 'more good news in the thread', I thought it was just more birthday wishes.
I've only just discovered...
Congratulations on the coming nuptials!

Thank you so much, Ben!

I'll let you all know when the big day is.
So far, it's in the formative planning stages, but it's gonna be quick.....! :woohoo:
