HAPPY BIRTHDAY ! ! !

21, the legal age for drinking alcohol here in the U.S. What is the legal age over there? But I doubt it will be your 'first' drink if you still drink. :tongue:

Happy birthday Craig,

Have a good time and enjoy your travels!

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Happy Birthday Craig!

Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

Happy birthday craig!

I'll get the cake in the oven soon :stirthepot:

The Dhamma if it is the UK then it is 18, but if anyone is going to scotland the Laws are about to be toughened from 1/9/09
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
