Seem to be coming through the other side of this damn depression.
Feeling like I'm accomplishing stuff and good things happening at work

Good, glad to hear it.

And since you live in Canada, you can go grab some SHYTE to help you take your mind off it

I just finished mowing the back lawn, listening to Ana Moura on the headphones to get me in the mood for my trip back to the Alentejo on Tuesday.

I love her voice and the lyrics - in Portuguese they say "poema" and they are a poem (you can find translations on Google). They are clever and deep but carried on great music, with the Portugese "Guitarra" centre stage .... and for those thinking spanish guitar, DON'T, it's a 12-string lute.... a spanish guitar is a "viola"! A bit like marmelade is made from Quince (marmelos) not oranges ...... in fact, for those of you thinking spanish anything, just don't

Aproveite!

Very pleased to hear it. Don't push yourself too hard though, I have a tendency to do that when I'm having better days but then I over-exhaust myself.
And you've got your holiday to look forward to soon as well. Happy that your black dog is retreating

Holy Mother of Pearl! Where does one find that? I will endure the widened hips and back fat for a purple pottomus.

Our local store (Big Y) carries it.

Purple is the very best kind of Potamus to have.

I need some of that. I have an ice cream maker so maybe I'll try making my own.

This made me smile last night. A decent effort between the two of us on a school night.

Not a spoof, the Swiss police take these breaches very seriously.

A few years back, a co-worker here was radar-flashed for exceeding 60km/h in a built-up zone.

He was on his bicycle...
