Weekly Wrap Up (May 29 - Jun. 4)



I was thinking of skipping the Wrap Up this weekend as I don't know if anyone is around :unsure:? I mean it is the May long weekend down in the US of A and it is the Queen's Jubilee Celebrations in the UK. BTW, do you Brits call every long weekend a bank holiday? Not sure how that works.

Here in Canada we had our long weekend the week before. Where in my neck of the woods it would be better to wait another week so we don't get snow :o Yes, snow. Actually up until about 10-12 years ago, I used to make the trek with friends to the Rockies to go camping for the May long weekend, and we would bet on what day we would wake up in the morning to find everything covered in snow. I like to think that I learned for the last 10-12 years as I've not gone camping in them. Just took about 20 years to figure it out :gikkle:.

In the end it doesn't matter if you are around or not, we do show up to the do the GA Blogs where there is never a holiday on our calendar 0:). So here is all the great contributions this week that our great contributors put forth.

Everyday of the week, Myr gets up before the crack of dawn and writes up and posts the Word of the Day. Here is what he brought us this week:

cahoot, eurytopic, juxtapose, putsch, tantra, deterge, snickersnee

Monday was Cia's day to bring an excellent interview with our CSR Feature Author for the month of May:

Thursday, Myr was by with a new Grammar Guide (no, not a Graeme Guide this week) and a great conversation after:

Friday our Prompt Team turned the tables on us. They wanted suggestions of prompts that the 3 member team could tackle themselves. If you missed it, never too late to go back and put in your suggestion!

Now if any of you are having a party in the near future, I guess Comicality is offering to cater your party!

Oh wait, someone just whispered in my ear that he is not catering your parties :(.

Well we finished up the month of May, so shall we see the goals we did achieve, and take a early look at June?

Well, it's Pfingsten here, a long weekend. I got up just to read the wrap up, of course. Now I'll enjoy brunch and wait for the thunderstorm. I might write a wolfish prompt-story later.

It's called 'The Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend'.

4 days of celebrations for the Queen's 70 years on the throne.

Here in the UK, we normally have a Bank Holiday Monday at the end of May. Because of the Jubilee celebrations, the usual Monday Holiday was moved to Thursday 2nd June, then an additional Bank Holiday granted for Friday 3rd, making a long weekend. Confused? So am I. Anyway, it just means four days of celebrations. Where I live, it's pouring with rain today, but we had fairly good weather for the other three days and apparently the sun is shining in Scotland.

Can't believe I'm the first to say happy P R I D E ! It was putting an extra spring in my step all week and my town's celebration is coming up next week.

It's not done to abdicate as it is seen as an abandonment of duties. The Queen promised to reign for life and she will fulfil that promise. If she became very ill, then Charles might become Regent until she died.

According to a story I just finished writing, in 2047 William is king. :P

That's probably about right. Elizabeth is 96, Charles is 73 and William is 39.
