I saw two little girls clearing rubbish out of a roadside hedge.

Re: I smiled because...

because musicians came to plan the organisation of the music festival in our field - it will be wonderful. Mid June hopefully.

Glad that musicians are planning the music festival! I've been to festivals organised by non-musicians, and even helped at a few, and the lack of what the performers actually needed was obvious ...

I only needed somebody to carry my giant amp at the festivals I played at.

Today this made me smile:

Re: I smiled because...

We just offer the space- our meadows, all in open air- all safe- and organised 100% by the musicians. By 3rd week in June, all should be safe.

Brilliant to be able to help as so few festivals are planned. It will be our first 3 day festival, but our 5th concert here.

Do you provide power as well, or do any amplified acts need to bring their own generator or extra-long extension cable?

Re: I smiled because...

I like Lehner-Versand, they sent me gummi bears today
Those lovely things that have been banned for me by my dentist as well as myself years ago. Being naughty they taste even better.
I'll keep it a secret by posting it on the internet

A few doctors told me (well, I take it with a grain of salt because they are gummy-bears addicts) that real gelatine gummy-bears are great for joints, as an anti-athritic prevention.

Yep. True. But because they are sour, they take the minerals out of your teeth and you get white spots. Now white is usually great but white spots on white teeth are still spots. Not to mention, not healthy.

Guess you have to make a choice: Smile brightly at people and apologize for not being able to get up to greet them, or jump up and learn to speak with your lips closed.

Depends where not in the UK.

Smiled because it was so beautiful by the Lake at Tour de Peiz and the Port Restaurant that was supposed to be fully booked found us a table.

I smiled because Jennifer McDermed, announcing the weather forecast, very successfully made the best of a glitch with the weather graphics while on-air, and laughed freely. https://youtu.be/ykz_dbpYRPU

NEVER SETTLE has no particular reputation at present
Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because
- I found a new forest + pond area around Winterthur
- and because some girl on the street randomly said "hallo" to me and I said "hallo" back and then her pretty mom, or babysitter, idk, looked at me and smiled..
- and because there was nice weather for at least half a day..

Re: I smiled because...

Because today, I finally plucked up the courage to use “ Tag wohl” instead of “ Grüezi mitenand” while passing fellow hikers. Knowing nod from older people. Blank look from most .
