May everyone here have a happy New Year and a happy new year.

Here's hoping that next year everyone around the world tries a little bit harder to get on with each other and remember what it is to be human.

If we must have pain in 2019, may it be from our sides aching with laughter.



Happy New Year Y'all!

Here's hoping that the next 583 million miles around the sun, somehow teaches us that there is more that unites us than divides us, that we are indeed a marvel of the universe, and that the petty squabbles that keep us from being amazed by our very existence fade from our focus.

And individually have a happy new year everyone!

Clever-clogs Thar! Made me giggle even more than the original typo did!

I also hope for more kindness, understanding and compassion in 2019. And hope that, for all my TFD companions, the year will bring us all everything we deserve.

Well there’s the paradox. When my family tell me to cheer up and stop being grumpy, I always point out that I enjoy being grumpy. Dancing

Quote:
Memorial held for 'Angry Bob' the grumpy swan






A grumpy swan who spurned multiple potential love interests has had a memorial service held in his honour.

The ceremony for 'Angry Bob' was held after a large online response to a post announcing his death on the Facebook page of Hestercombe House in Somerset.

The swan's temperament even inspired a poem which was read at the memorial.

Philip White, from Hestercombe House, said: "He could be difficult and cantankerous but you had to love him because he was so independent."



About 20 people attended the memorial service, which was held on Thursday next to Pear Pond where the swan had lived.

One person said: "It was quite sad, and a bit of a shock, but may he rest in peace."

Another added: "I never saw him as a really grumpy swan, I heard the stories, but he was such a character and we'll miss him."

'Angry Bob' made national headlines in 2010 when he was accused of killing his first mate and driving two more away.

Staff at Hestercombe House said they had no idea of his popularity.

"We just imagined visitors avoided him," said volunteer Ben Whitworth. "An awful lot of people found him utterly bewitching."

I decided to post this here before I re-read your grump-related post, so it is not supposed to bear any relation to that!| Silenced

Maybe Bob was gay, not grumpy?

Hmmm. A bit of "Step ye gaily, here we go" for the New Year.

It was also my first introduction to Bag Rock, I was only like maybe 7 meters from the stage, it was an amazing experience beyond description.
