Big Brother speech . . . event indeed. I'm glad you are safe and speaking with honesty . . . and clever alliteration. <3

At least over here they still call wild fires "wild fires". If we were hearing about combustion events while the ash fell, it would be rather annoying.

Good one, Deb. Whatever you do, don't tell the government.
