Hi everyone! It smells lovely in here with the fresh roses.

Sue, good to see you are rehearsing for the carol singing!!! lol

Zany, Thank you! I found the tree candle holder in a junk shop and put some conifer inside instead of a candle! The trunk is cinnamon sticks with some moss around the base.

elle, We are all on the look out for new ideas LoL! I'll be bringing the latest christmas flower arranger magazine in soon, there might be a few ideas in that.

Karma, Thank you for the bouquet of roses, they are arranged beautifully!
We haven't started decorating the house yet, but will be soon!

What a great start to a new thread, that tree is quite a piece of art. Karma, so nice to see you. The roses are such a vibrant red and they look really Christmassy next to the window with Plantgeeks greenery.
I need to know which arch is getting the mistletoe as I want to stay away from that ! Although a little mistletoe might bring Steven back from across the street.
Sue, are you singing that to the guitar you play so well, or just humming while you work?
Zany, do hope that Bob is doing better today, perhaps that pie you made him will fix him right up. You are quite the gem and Bob is sure lucky to have you!

Good morning. I hope everyone is well and ready to start the new week. I was working on a modernistic Christmas arrangement for the cafe and had it almost ready when I fell asleep (without saving it) When I woke up still in front of the computer it was gone :~P I'll have to try again later.

We are having a bit of a rough spell but this too shall pass. Bob has developed a small infection on the side of his fourth toe and needs to get to the clinic tomorrow and Friday but they don't have a bed for him to take the shuttle down and he can't drive himself. I may have to miss work to take him, which we can't afford and spend money on gas that we just don't have. We have been frantically leaving messages with his care provider at the VA and I am on pins and needles waiting for a call back. Praying for a miracle here!

The sugar free pumpkin pie actually came out quite well. Splenda sweetener holds it's sweet flavor in cooking better than anything else I have tried and I couldn't taste the difference myself!

Well, time to sweep up the floors and make the beds, run a couple errands, change Bob's dressings and get ready for work. I hope they call soon so I can squeeze in a half hour at the park with Pyxle to run off some of her excess energy from they turkey scraps she wolfed down.

I don't know if you all would be interested, but there is good amout of info on treating diabetes with appropriate foods that have shown to have effected a balance of blood sugar to some degree. Not pushing this on you, only offering.

I brought a small keg of homemade mead, aged for 3 years and crystalized ginger drizzled with agave nectar. It's under the mistletoe. lol

Zany - here's hoping that you got the miracle you are wishing for.
3 year old mead - Plantgeek - I don't believe I have ever had some before. Crystalized ginger with agave nectar - how exotic!! After all that, and Terri's chocolate, I thought I would bring in something to balance out the menu. This is the latest I have ever gotten cherry tomatoes from my yard. I picked some for our Thanksgiving salad, and a bunch for all of you. Maybe Terri can rig up something and hang them as small Christmas ornaments?????

Terri, that is one glitzy pineapple you made there. I just love the way you think. Sorry you are the only late night customer these days. I am just so tired from the holiday I haven't even gotten online in the evening. I'll try to do better, although we are headed to the cabin this weekend hoping to get a deer so we have some meat in the freezer and then in a couple weeks we will be off on holiday with lots to do inbetween. I will try though.
Zany, I do hope things have not gotten any worse for you, please hang in there and know we are all crossing our fingers for a positive outcome for you and Bob.
PG - have a good one today!

Hi all. Bob is fianlly tucked away at the hospital and came out of surgery a little while ago. Now when he takes his socks off to count he can only go to 19 because one little piggy ran away from home. But his fever is down and the surgeon said the rest of the foot looks pretty good. We don't know how long he'll be there but at this point I plan on taking advantage of his stay and getting some rest and recouperation time in myself!

I may even find enough time to work on that cyber christmas decoration if I don't spend the free time sleeping.

plantgeek88, is that a venison roast you are pilfering? Yummmm

Zany - glad the rest of Bob's foot is OK. The sleep is well deserved, and you should get as much as you can.

I will be spending many nights here at the old cafe since I don't seem to get home until late these days. The dance studio is having a holiday showcase next Friday, and I am still learning two of the three routines that I am in. Wonder if Madame woodonthewall makes a good practice partner?

Candee - it has been years since I have had venison. One of my uncles used to bring us some when I was a kid. How many months of meat does one deer provide?

PG - thanks for bringing the fresh fruits and other goodies.

Terri - hope your internet comes back up soon. We miss you!!!!

Zany, sorry to hear Bob lost a toe, but glad that he's doing better now and that you are getting rest. Here's to both of your healths. Yes, that would be a delicious venison roast, which I would be quite happy to share if y'all weren't so far away. I don't cook much, but that is one dish I do reasonably well (it's easy lol). Toss it in the croc pot with some veggies, seasonings, a little olive oil to make the meat succulent and viola, you have a good meal even if the cut of meat is not.

Soilsand, I'm sure Madame Woodsy would make a wonderful dance partner and would be most eager to shake off a few pounds after eating so many goodies here. Good luck on the dance routines and keeping up with holliday doings.

Things are getting a little busy here, poetry readings, contests, writing boatloads. The muse has gotten very active lately and my pen can barely keep up. Could be from all the sugar. lol I'm putting the finishing touches on the next book titled : Contains Scenes of Indigenous Nudity, and hope to have it out early next year provided I locate a new publisher.

Lurkey Sue must be busy in the weeds. Drop on by when you come up for air. I brought chocolate. hehehe

Hope eveyone and their chickens are well and happy and that Terri's puter gets fixed soon.

soilsandup, I tried to post a reply last night but DG went down for a while and I gave up. I think Madame woodonthewall might be a bit stiff in her dancing and wood (punny groan) make a better audience than partner.


plantgeek88, That roast sounds heavenly to me...guess I'm going to have to beg one from one of the hunters around here.

Terri, get that computer fixed soon cause this place is not the same with you gone!

Now for some good news for a change. Bob just called and the Dr. said he has healed enough that they will be able to graft skin over the wound early next week! Even with the toe trouble that foot filled in twice as fast as it did when this happened 5 years ago. The wound vac they use now makes a world of difference. So if ya want a dance partner...join me in doing the happy dance!

Please pass the white chocolate covered almonds and ginger tea. I feel like celebrating!

I am doing the happy dance for you Zany, so glad to hear good news for you guys!
Dianne, we usually like to have 2 in the freezer for just the 2 of us. We use lots and lots of burger for sauces, barbeque, meatloaf and just anything you use burger in. Love the tenderloin on the grill, better than filet mignon and the rest we use for stew meat or get some chipped for cheesesteak sandwiches and chipped beef gravy and then just a bit of bologna and hotdogs to give to friends and family - that would be all of you so just feel free to drop by and pick some up!
We are headed up this afternoon and try to get one tomorrow and then shut down the water as it is calling for a real cold snap and we don't want frozen pipes. If we go after this weekend it will be outside latrine, no hot water, you know really roughin it!!!

Terri - welcome back!!! That cuppa was just what I needed after trimming the nectarine tree. I am the world's worst prunner - I have a hard time lopping off branches that are still alive, even if I know that it is for the common good of the tree. There are still some straggler leaves on the tree - gives me an excuse to wait until next weekend to spray for peach leaf curl. Hopefully I will get the spray regime right this year so that I can bring some nectarines out to the cafe next summer. It got down to a low of 35 degrees last night - so winter is definitely around the corner even for California. Dress rehearsal tonight, and no, I am not at all ready LoL.

Candee - you are so on top of getting the decorations in. Sue - the garden looks lovely lwith the ights you have out too. Mine's are all still in the cabinet upstairs.

Sue - didn't realize you are so crafty! Those and the african violets would make great gifts.

Terri - I am doing a tango routine with the women's group (we call ourselves the girlfriends), a west coast swing, and a bolero routine and will have three costumes. I took up ballroom dancing just before I turned 50, and it has kept me young at heart for the last 5 years.

Candee - ballet for 16 years. You must have excellent posture and are full of grace. Ballet dancers are so elegant. My daughters took ballet when they were young since I did not want them to be a klutz like their mom. I never did a step of dancing until I was 49 years old (too self-conscious in my younger days) because by then, I did not care what I looked like out on the dance floor.

Zany - wonderful decor to the cafe. Non-traditional is always a good thing. Tomorrow, I am taking a dear friend to UCSF for some medical testing. I will be thinking of Bob and you.

Hey Candee, got room for one more up on that table? hehehe That sounds like too much fun. Whaddaya say about putting on red jingle boots for more effect. I have an extra pair.

Wow, everyone decorations are wonderful! I'm going to be hard pressed to keep up. So, meantime, I brought more goodies- candied violets, blackberry tarts and a tray of roasted veggies- sweet potatoes, new potatoes, jeruselum artichokes seasoned with sea salt and garlic butter. Then to wash it all down, oolong tea.

Dianne, that is one great shot! You look so happy too.

Hello Plantgeek, they sound like sexy boots!! We will have to make sure Candee keeps her Bra on this time LOL!

I'm leaving a flower magazine in the cafe for you all to browse through when you get a minute for a cuppa!
Is the latte machine fixed yet btw?
Thank you for the goodies Plantgeek, love those candied violets, I'll try not to scoff the lot!!

Oh I don't know Terri, as a safety precaution against overheating from all that dancing, I think flinging off our bras is well called for. Ok, so I brought everyone a pair of sexy jingle boots. Y'all feel free to join in. "Jingle boots, jingle boots, jingle all the way. Oh what fun to fling our bras and leave them where they lay, hey!

So who is gonna be responsible to clean up after the sheep. I don't think that Madame Woodsy is gonna go along with this at all?

If you are gonna dance in your slippers Zany, please ring a bell so you don't keep sneakin up on me, I nearly fell off that last table when you startled me!
That ginger apple crisp is just the thing for a hangover I am told, the ginger will really settle your stomach quickly! Perhaps we should save a bit of it in the freezer so we have it for the New Year.
We are having a celebration for the New Year aren't we? Are we going to have a New Year cafe? I know, already getting ahead of myself, but since we have our Christmas gathering at T-day I do get ahead of myself. Did I just repeat myself??? LOL

I'll second that Candee. Would you please Dianne? We are having tons of fun up here on the table, but chaotic flopping and flipping does not a choreography make. Synchronized flopping would be much more cute.

Zany, I made you a pair of sexy slippers trimmed in bells. You can be comfy and still jingle the night away by tapping out time with us.

If y'all really want that poundcake, the recipe is in the Moosewood Desert Book. It's filled with lots of yummy stuff, well worth puttin' on the pounds for. Dw and I couldn't decide where to start, so we each wrote 2 favorites on a scrap of paper and drew one from a hat, and keep drawing till there are no more. Now the real trick is coming out of the kitchen with something edible without letting two cooks spoil the cake. lol

Zany, I hope Bob is still doing well and you are getting some rest.

Elle, hope you are still having great breakfasts of fresh eggs.

Terri, can't wait to see your next arraingement. You always come up with something awesome.

Cheers to everyone and please help yourselves to all the goodies cause I'm making more wicked diet busters. hehehe

Candee, Madame Woodsy will gut you a slice of the pound cake. It is yummy!

I will give it a go for the choreography, and I like the thought of synchronized flopping. As my dance teacher always says, don't worry if you don't get it right. The audience will just think that you have a solo part. Broadway here we come...better make it off, off, off, off broadway LoL.

Dianne, I was disapointed with the Christmas designs in the mag this year. Not very inspiring, I like the quirky sheep though! Hope to get a peep at your costumes soon, hows the rehearsals going?

Zany, I want my bra back!!!!! please Lol Hope your Granddaughter likes it.
How is Bob and when will he be home again?

Candee, I'm sure we will have a New Years cafe', maybe Sue is busy designing it now?!!
Will you be home for new years eve?

Elle, hope you get the pipes fixed soon and get into the Christmas spirit with the eggnog! Keep warm.

Bob made it home about 6:00 this evening. Everything looks good except he lost his balance transfering from the car to his chair and fell. He wasn't injured but he'll be sore for a few days from the jarring. Poor Bob just can't get a break!

I am just wondering are we to now use the back door cause the last time I came around back there the lights were out and I almost took a spill myself, course I had a few of those daquiries in me. Doesn't appear that you got to sleep before 2 either?
Glad that Bob has something to take to get some sleep and hope he isn't bruised in addition to everything else. Think we need to give Terri some of those drugs so she can get some rest as well. How do you 2 manage to stay up all day and night, I haven't been able to do that for 30 years LOL!
As for the pound cake Terri, it doesn't cost a pound per slice but you will gain a pound per slice! It is a cake but more dense than a regular baked cake. So more bang for your buck or pound whatever the denomination may be.
Yes, I will be home for the New Year, and will need help staying awake so we better plan for quite an event!

Oh, you poor dears. Here, have some sleepy tea. This is called dragon pearls- hand rolled jasmine leaves with a flower inside. Very relaxing, calming, makes you say nighty-night. And to sweeten this, I brought acacia tree honey, light in color and flavor yet has a high note of distinction. Very yummy.

Candee, you have a good point about us getting black eyes, so I corraled a box of Elton John glasses. Funky enough to fit the occasion, yet practical too.

Terri, Terri, Terri... lol I can't take the blame on that one. I don't think anyone can make ya do anything. However, I did manage to find (not telling where) leopard print pasties. Will these do?

Dianne, thank you for organizing our flopping selves. Maybe I should get jingle pasties for us.

Zany, sorry Bob took a spill, but glad it wasn't more than that.

Thanks for the explanation of cake Candee, got it now!
We need a few more lanterns out the back, no doubt someone will lose their Elton John glasses before the nights out! When Steven turns on his Christmas lights, it will be much brighter for us out there!

Terri, your'e right. We may need to guard Zany's fantabulous tree. My snakes volunteer if y'all ain't skeered. I promise that they are very sweet to friends, dangerous to foes and will eat any "problems" that occur. hehehe

Elle, yes please tell your hubby that he is more than welcome to hang out with us. Pun intended. There are snacks all over the place, enough to tide us over the holidays and then some. Why look, there is a whole keg of home brew, a gallon of mead, kombucha tea on ice, blood orange green tea, a tray of roasted sweet potatoes seasoned with Icelandic butter and Himalayian salt, rolled oysters and another pound cake, as it was so popular.
Great candle BTW. I love things handmade. A bit of ourselves go into it. Have you tried using beeswax or soy? I know it's more expensive, but there is a growing market for candles made of those materials if you are interested in doing something like that.

Terri, I loved that arrangement with the leaf that echoed the rim of the vase. What is that jug used for? I have one the same, but in black. I would love to play hop scotch, can we drink the scotch?
Elle, I hope you're keeping warm and toasty and that the weather is kinder to you over the xmas season. It's amazing that your chooks are still laying when it is cold! What a shame you have to work so much, but as you say, it's great that you have a job. There is always someone worse off eh?
PG, you are too funny. That 'pun intended' did not go over my head! I might get up on that table and flop around a bit myself.
Candee, what are your plans for christmas? I managed to get a pair of Eltons glasses to wear. they match my boa quite well. Coff, coff, (got a feather in my throat) The new haircut is still a bit short! (hasn't grown much in two weeks)

Weed, those purple feathers and Elton glasses are a riot and your purse is too cute for words.

Fresh eggnog... We are going to celebrate the season in style!

Well, Bob slept through the night once the Vicadin kicked in and woke up a bit sore but otherwise fine. The Home health folks came out this morning to change his dressings and make sure he knew how to administer his IV antibiotics. Then the medic delivery service came with his drugs and spent a while going over everything again. He has to go back to Frisco once a week but that will just be an overnight trip so he is happy to be home the rest of the time in his own bed and to be here where his friends can drop in for a visit. One day at a time...

I am starting to adjust to all the changes in our lives and making time for myself by taking the pup to the park again. We both missed it a lot. We had two old puppy friends show up this morning to run and play with that Pyxle hadn't seen in quite some time. Those three dogs ran so hard she was still gasping for air when I left for work 2 hours later and Bob called to say she had slept for 4 hours after I left. If it doesn't rain tomorrow I'm going to take her again. We both need the excercise and fresh air.

Hi everyone! It's freezing outside, but nice and warm in the cafe with good friends to hang out with!

Funky Candee, Thank you for the eggnogg recipe! Looking forward to some of your fabulous cocktails using our best crystal of course lol!

Hi Zany, Glad Bob is settled back home and his friends will be able to visit, hope that doesn't mean more work for you with endless cups of tea and sandwiches to make lol! Having fun with the dogs in the fresh air will do you good and give you a break.

Plantgeek, I've been painting my bedroom, it's taking forever! could do with you over here to slop a bit of paint around for me! Thanks for working so hard in the kitchen, I must say, our menu has improved so much since you joined us, we love your creative offerings!

Better get back to work, there's paint in my hair already!!

Glad that Bob is able to spend most of his time at home, don't let the company run you two any more ragged. Do just as you would if it were me poppin in, just let me know when it is time to leave. Will he have to travel once a week for very long do they think? Enjoy your time at the park, you deserve some R&R with all you are contending with.
Elle, do hope the snow stays away for you, but guess it is inevitable that we get some. Do you have to travel far to work - do you have to go when the weather is bad?
Hey plantgeek, are you gonna try the nog? I bet you are an ace at whippin up something like it. You are just a marvelous chef.

Hi All! I haven't been on as much lately...it must be all the snow and such...the gardening bug always comes back in Feb/March :) I ordered half a dozen seed magazines and have been looking through them. Also another member just sent me a bunch(8) brug cuttings, so if they all grow I'll have 16 next year...I must need my head examined. I have a small city yard. Every year I end up with more plants then I have room for...but I have to admit I wouldn't have it any other way!!! I'm loving the new modern theme for the cafe and the Pink Floyd adds to the retro glam feel!

Thanks for the welcome Plantgeek! And everone else as well! Hope you're all doing well :)

I brought some flowers by with me...they're...er...from my garden...yes...they were growing in the snow :) Just kidding we bought them at the supermarket.

Enjoy your brother's visit ! We went into town and had lunch with my brother today. He is getting closer to retiring and looking forward to leaving for the Philippines in February. He loves the Philippines and plans to spend his retirement years there with annual visits home. . . But now his company is trying to talk him into waiting an extra 6 mos. to a year. He is excited about going and at the same time tempted to stay if they offer him what he wants. It will be interesting to see what he decides.

We are getting our first real winter storm and the temps have dropped to the high 30's with lots of snow on the mountains around us. It is beautiful seeing the mountain ranges with some snow covered and others verdant green. I do love this area for the mountains!

Finished the second show tonight - was a little nervous last night with my two solo numbers, but it went well. Thanks for sending the luck my way, Terri. Did you get the chance to visit your brother while he was in the Bahamas?

Zany - we must be getting the same cold front that has hit your area.. No snow here for us, but the night time temps is dropping close to freezing. Went out and harvested my bell peppers before the frost gets to them.

I keep the house at abiut 68-69 degrees during the day and the heat off during the night - my middle daughter who is currently living in Los Angeles came home for the weekend and complained about how cold it is in the house. But, after hearing about freezing pipes, and such, I don't think we have much to complain about.

Hellooo Sue. Thanks for the invite back. A dip in the tropics is just what I needed to get thru the winter. I brought along a ginger/ cardamon pound cake drizzled with peach sauce. Spider! It's so good to see you. Come here and give me a hug ya big beautiful hairy thing. Sue, she has gotten so big. A bit paunchy too. She's been eating too many politicians again. No problem, I'll take her for a few spins down to the beach, work off the excess. Spider, you must include a super model in your diet once in a while. Just be sure to drug test them first. You don't wanna end up in rehab sweetie.

Terri, have fun with your brother and don't worry about finishing the paint job- I took care of that. So, relax and enjoy the visit.


Elle, hope everything is ok. I'm knitting you a suit of Everwarm (I'm making this up), so if you should get stuck in the cold or at work, you won't freeze your heine off.

Ooops, gotta run. Time to slop paint. Y'all have a most wonderful day.

The weather so bad and so bitter old yoru way. That way if you should slip and fall or something, somebody wil know you might be hurt if ya don't call back or come in right away.

But seriously, the weather is no joke in some parts. We got a dusting of sleet, snow and freezing rain all in one night, which is nothing compared to up North. Just a little tap on the noggin to get folks' attention here.

Hope y'all stay safe and warm and have a body to snuggle up to, be it of the two-legged sort, furry, winged or scaled.

We are expecting a heavy freeze here tonight. The mountains around are covered with white stuff and the roads are still wet from the last rain so black ice will be a real problem. It sure makes me glad we had to move into town and I am only 1 mile from home to work on a quiet little surface street :~) Brrr, the only bad part is that my car doesn't get a chance to warm up at all.

Zany, how's Bob? Hope all is well with you both and that you are treating yourself to to something good.

Hey, do y'all like to read and if so, what have you leafed through lately? I'm in the middle of Animals in Translation by Temple Grandin, a fascinating account of an autistic woman who realizes that she sees the world like animals do, allowing the rest of us to have better understanding for them, autistic people and ourselves. This book is so readable and straight forward that it's hard to put down. It's like going on a journey somewhere amazing and a little mysterious, and coming into awareness of many things. OK, well I said a mouthful. Who's next?

Mornin' y'all. During the cold seasons, I'm so glad that my Siamese is such a lap-cat. Nearly everytime I sit here writing to you all, she's here supervising, editing and correcting me if I don't rub her little head enough. If any of you have ever had the company of a Siamese, you know they ususally get what they want. But then, that's what is so appealing about them. They are powerful teachers on the art of persuasive will. lol

Terri, congratulations on your kiddo's success. And what performance would be complete without a parent's eyes glistening. I think it's in the contract.
Glad your brother's visit is going well. Ten months is a long time to be somewhere, but at least he went to a warm beautiful place and got to experience another culture. That's awesome!
No sweat on the painting. You did a great job prepping, so the rest was a breeze. Love the color!

Hey y'all, you gotta see a movie titled Angela. It's a French film, so you may have to dig around for it, but well worth the effort. It's about a man who decides to end it all by jumping off a bridge and right before he does, sees a woman about to do the same thing. He tries to stop her, she jumps, he saves her and then things get really interesting when this unique woman leads him into the inexplicable. Woooooo...
So, what movies have you all seen that were interesting? I'm a huge movie geek, love a good story, and am always on the hunt for something out of the ordinary and of good quality.

Ohhhh Star, you lucky dog you! That's awesome. What an experience it must be to stand near those figures. And each one is unique, a model of an actual person if I read correctly. Can you imagine what it must have been like to be in the burial chamber after it was unearthed, facing that army. I think I would have let them be.
So tell us all about it after you go to see them. Louisville has a museum, but it's a bit puny in comparrison to others. We do have a very cool arms museum, Frazier Historical Arms. They even have re-enactors, sword fights, speeches, ect. I took a long sword class there for about 4 months, but it whooped my butt. Could'nt do the class and my physically demanding job. I'm not as young as I'd like to be. Wahhhh.

Thank you all for the movie and book suggestions. We got our first night of frost last night, so staying indoors will be the norm for the next few weeks. PG - yes, pets are wonderful lap warmers, except if they are kittens and insist on using you for a climbing post. The everwarm bodysuits are great, even if I don't get as cold as Zany, Elle, and the rest of you (with the exception of Sue, LoL)

Terri - a solo part for Katie. That is wonderful. The performance went well - a few wobbles, but no major missteps. I normally just buy my clothes off the department store racks, so they are not the fancy ones like you see on TV. I did not take any photos, but I may be able to get a few from someone else.

Star - loved your snow sundae. you will have to make it to the museum for the terracotta warriors. They are so neat. I was able to see them on site during my first trip to China in 1983 when I was pregnant with my oldest child. They were breathtaking - hundreds of them with all different faces.

Won't be takin any sunblock or anything else as you know how travel is these days. We don't check any baggage so will have to either do without or get when we get there.
To everyone, please have a safe and wonderful holiday.
Of course you may have the first dance with Steve, just remember he can't stand very long so you may not make it through the entire song? He'll be fine as our DJ again, he really enjoyed it last time. I just gotta remember to show up on time!
Dianne, by the sound of the weather out west you better be bracing for a blizzard, I can't believe last year we were in Vegas this time and it was sunny 70's, now snow there?
Yikes, plantgeek with a sword?????? Now that is scarey. I promise not to ever ruffle your feathers!

Ha, ha, I don't have feathers.
Have a great time in the sun Candee and a Happy Holly Day. And don't come back without a tan and stories of all your fun.

Oh, Dianne, lucky you going to China. I'd love to go one day, eat real Chinese food, see those mist-cloaked mountains and wander the wild places there.

Terri, with all the busyness ahead, don't forget your vitamins. Looky here, I whipped up a batch of tonic, hehehe, spirulina, wheat grass, chlorella, ginseng (red and white), angelica, flax seed oil, cinnamon and a dab of black rum...well ok, a lot of black rum. Cheers y'all!

BTW plantgeek I will have a tan, but likely in all the wrong hidden places LOL! And yes, for those of you wondering, I will be dancing on a table so keep your eye on the PV news!
