Dear Cindy, The toast comes in waves as it occurs at nine in your own time zone.You're very nice to toast the professor even though he isn't a favorite writer of yours. You've been even nicer to help me with the accents which are barely smudges to my eyes.
What author or person would you toast when his or her day comes? Always with love, Lissi----- Original Message ----- From: "Grandma Cindy" <popularplace@xxxxxxxxx>

Interesting idea. I'll try to remember at 9 p.m.--which time? Greenwich mean time? each time zone? grin Cindy --- Estelnalissi <airadil@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:Today is J. R. R. Tolkien's birthday, Traditionally, his admirers stand, raise a glass of anything at nine pe em this day and say, "The Professor," and drink a toast. This gesture, though simple and brief has been a meaningful tradition. This year I'm enspired to start a date book and take a significant 15 seconds a day to toast the birth, or anniversary of something that matters to me. For example, on the anniversary of Bookshare's founding, "Books Prepared and Shared" on Delmar's Birthday, "Close Cousins," on Shakespeare's birthday, ""Humanity as Theater." on Beethoven's birthday, "The composer who heard the sublime in silence" On Thoreau's birthday, "student of nature" It's a nice way to give a nod to people and ideas worth remembering. If on any day anyone here has a toast to propose, I always have ice water or something wet, and fifteen seconds to spare. The way my random thoughts spawn personal projects you'd think I didn't have a passel of books to validate. Always with love, LissiCindy __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
