Happy Solstice NJ. I happen to be Pagan and normally today would be a big day, but I'm laid out with a migraine. I swear, whoever invented these deserves to be drug out into the street, shot, run over, and hit with a baseball bat.

In the US, it's Father's Day so we celebrated by enjoying the peace and quiet. Yay!

Happy Solstice, Kathy. I'm sorry you weren't able to enjoy the day as much as you'd like. I hope your migraine is better today. They're nasty things.

It was Father's Day and the Solstice. A great day for celebrating both. Hope you enjoyed a peaceful day, Anny.
