Re: I smiled because...

I came accross this (thanks to marton's Mugabe thread .... everything leads to something good ) and I like this idea very much.

It should spread (not mental health specifically). I could well imagine investing time in such a project.

Re: I smiled because...

Having spent time with a psychiatrist and psychologist I can certainly say for me a pint and a chat in the pub was much more beneficial.

I think these bench sessions should be encouraged everywhere.

At least in a pub you're pretty certain that the others are as roughly as inebriated as you are.

Re: I smiled because...

..... the sun is shining and the birds are chattering. It's not the "let's get organized and go south" chirping, it's the sound of spring.

Did I sleep through winter and haven't realized? What's the date today?

Re: I smiled because...

I got written confirmation of my intensive German course.

Actually, not sure this is the right thread... do we have an "I bricked myself because..."?
