Happy happy day my friend, may it be filled with blessings and joy. :namaste:

Kindest wishes, Dave
Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them
~The Buddha~

What's that in dwarf years? :tongue:

We dwarves live to be ancient so it is actually only about 14 in dwarf years.

I'm 32 and 1/2 years old (which I, if I were a dwarf too, reckon would be approximately 13 and 5/8 years old).

So unlike you Nangwa, I'm still frozen, as I'm not to quite to 33° like the Scottish Rite.

Happy (belated?) Birthday :cheers:
