Re: I smiled because...

... because the bees were so happy out in the warm sunshine - very healthy and hive full- now fed extra before we cover the hive with bubble wrap on Sunday before the snow comes -

our first bees- they loved our wild flower meadows and 'Curate's' garden full of melliferous perenials - bonne chance and see you in Spring little ones

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because somehow I manage to write and practice for rehearsals at the same time. I am just a little bit worried about my neighbors.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because, when my e-piano and my iPad no longer 'connected' properly, it only took me one attempt and three minutes to remove the Controller App and reload it. Usually it takes me three or four goes and twenty minutes!

Because I got asked "why humans have round heads". And because I did not really know.

You caused me a fwp: Ever since I read that post early this evening, I got Monty Python's "always look on the bright side of life" going on in my head.

I can live very well with that

Re: I smiled because...

After watching a great video about linguistic peformance by Chomsky who talked about language abilities and infinite constructions since linguistic competence, It gave me some inspirations to prepare Portuguese tests to apply over textual genders. So wonderfu!!

Re: I smiled because...

Because I learned about margarets, that are different than the usual yellow and white.

Because I got an amazing essay turner in by somebody.

I was writing in German, and my autocorrect got confused between the languages, and changed DANKE (= thank you) to DANCE. That made me smile. Seems they're the same thing in a way.
