A pleasure, but XXOO? I don't know you well enough for smooches and hugs, and my trouble and strife might object.

Tilt, our dear friends form down under are notoriously good at affection and hospitality.
if she'd wanted to get down and serious with you, I'm sure you'd know it by now... and Retro's a mod... I hardly think he'd permit hanky-panky in his yard, somehow.... :jumping:

Well, we play Scrabble over the computer from different rooms... typing to each other in different rooms should be nothing new.

It does feel "homey" here, I've got to say. Yeah, for an internet board, this place can feel good!

Hi Stephanie, woini and everyone..!

:group:
"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
