The reason I ask is because I'm always saying to myself, "I can't believe I haven't put away winter clothes yet and it's not even midsummer!" (as an example)

I'm just waiting for the temps to drop!


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

This was the only topic I could find that relates to the summer solstice. I'd like to wish everyone a happy summer solstice. For me, it's a time of disquiet. There was rain last night and the temperature has a tinge of fall to it. I feel sad and am dragging myself around. But I have a date to take my grandsons to the swimming pool later today so that will surely cheer me up. What are your summer solstice plans?

I found out the full Strawberry Moon is on Thursday. That explains a lot.  :-\

August 2 marks 6 weeks since the beginning of summer (June 21). I'm thinking it might be a good time to celebrate midsummer. Or is there an ancient holiday celebrated around that time? Maybe this will relieve the confusion, for me anyway.

August 1 is Lammas for Christians, Lughnasadh for Neopagans.
