A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Hi, grace. Sorry, no. I'm in the NY state Hyde Park. In Dutchess County, about 80 miles north of New York City. I did visit London once, though. On my soap box, I'd probably recite the lyrics to "Don't Fear the Reaper."

Reciting the Declaration of Independence from a soapbox (in the US, I mean) would be met with jeers and derision, most likely.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/6/17 10:02am The Oscar:

A few years ago, I was working in a used record store, and realized I could hear a man ululating down the street. Soon, a six-foot-tall older Jamaican man walked in, spread his arms, and proclaimed "Ah! I smell it! I smell the elusive vinyl!" He then shook my hand and introduced himself as DJ Kool Herc. Easily one of my coolest celebrity encounters ever.
  Thu. 7/6/17 10:03am Sam:

The Montreal botanical garden is amazing, I love the Chinese garden part.
  Thu. 7/6/17 10:03am Sam:

@sam: i don't have the vocabulary to describe what i like in wine. guess i need to work on that skill set. especially since most of the wine we drink is spanish, portugese or argentinian, those references didn't mean anything to our clerk
  Thu. 7/6/17 10:14am Sam:

Fair enough. It is funny how they expect everyone to speak French, knowing full well that outside of Quebec French is not really taught much. Kind of unrealistic.
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 10:14am themutante:

I've come to wish you an early Birthday. Because you are lovely, it's no lie. And if you should die, we'd all be plenty sad... and cry.

2 minutes ago I was about to turn on the radio, and I thought "I don't remember if DJ Trouble is on Thursday mornings, but if I turn on the radio and I hear French, it's probably Trouble." Then I turned it on.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 7/6/17 10:20am βrian:

Oh, that would suit me fine, except for most Bordeaux and Burgundies that I just can't afford. The lesser known appellations are where it's at.
