    Morning All. 5.8 today.
    @DJC3 I did see the pink moon around dawn and it was truly beautiful. It would have been even moreso over a glittering sea.

    5.6 for me today. I really don't like failure and wasting my time and effort but my body does so enjoy reminding me this is all complete nonsense. Have a great day take care and all you can really do is laugh.

    5.8 hurrah! :D
    I did indeed see the pink moon, but thought it could be pink elephant, as I had seen the bottom of the wine bottle last night.;)
