The hall has been rented, the band has been hired (its a suprise), the tables have been set out, all that's left is a certain 'je ne sais quoi' which will be provided by zee guests. May I propose a pre-toast....to life, may we continue to live it to the fullest....

This calls for a repost of an Irish toast which was winkled out by Hallyx:
"Travel light in life; take only what you need: a loving family, good friends, simple pleasures, someone to love - and someone to love you, enough to wear, enough to eat - and a little more than enough to drink. For thirst is a dangerous thing."

May the Yourdonites be able to expend 4X the energy explaining what happened than they did explaining what might happen pre- rollover.
May we pull strength from each other as we lead our yo-yo local DGIs in recovery.
May we find strength to resist mouthing 24/7 "told ya, idiot".
May the pollies be ashamed to tell their grandkids about Y2K, because of their unrelenting BITR arguments.
"One drink is just right. Two is too many, and three is not enough" - old Spanish proverb.

Another toast, For My Bros from Airborne days gone by:
Here's to Lyin' Stealin' and Cheatin'
When you Lie, Lie to save a friend...
When you Steal, steal a gorgeous woman's/man's heart...
and when you Cheat...
