  • I was just coming here to add a late "happy Bloomsday" note. You beat me to it, John. :-)

  • Thanks, bilby! Ulysses was soooo very difficult for me. I understand the Susans so much better!

    Due to a couple of recent turns in wordie action, I'll be taking a break. I don't speak Japanese or, apparently, enough French. As for the other, well, it doesn't make me laugh.

    Ciao :-), I'll be on the porch.

  • Poor Susans :-(

    The day on which the events of Ulysses take place is 16 June (1904). Hence Bloomsday from Leopold Bloom, main character of Joyce's work.

  • Is it Michael's birthday?
    Does something bloom today? Maybe hydrangeas, up north? I'm between blooms right now, although the Black-eyed Susans are going to pop soon...

    What IS bloomsday? It sounds nicer than doomsday...

  • Have a happy one :-)
