      Here's to all my BC friends in honor of Friendship Day! Can't imagine a better group to waste vast amounts of time with.

      BM69:

      Lughnasa, also known as Lugnesed or Lugnasad, was one of the four main festivals of celtic religion. Lughnasa means Lug's assembly, and represents the last festival of the calendar, dedicated to Lug, the main god of Celtic mythology.

      Lughnasa was celebrated on the eve of August, during the time of the harvest. It has a patriotic character and was the festival that guaranteed peace and abundance of food.

      After the romanization and christianization of Europe, this pagan festival was associated with christian saints. However, we here at Lughnasa have allied ourselves with it for what it was and is: a time of renewal, growth, and mystic regeneration. It is an artistic time, and we seek to preserve that heritage in our work.

            Yes FF, thank you for that lesson today.

            And Katie, I'll be your boyfriend if you bake me a Raspberry Cream Pie.

            Of course, I'll have to ask my wife first.
