Canucks are less litigious than you 'Mericans, so I hadn't gone back to

I just wanted to formally and publicly apologize to all you Merkins. Jerome
was kind enough to privately point out my error in name calling. So I
thought I'd fess up. And since he's happy to listen to CBC <who
you can all witness my dubbing him an honourary Canuck!

Hi Bev et al
Ben hope you don't mind I modified the subject line for this topic fork.
No, not at all Jane.
I'm not in that position, yet (may never be)
however had exactly the
same questions. I just deleted a bunch of guess work lines here to avoid
muddying the waters so will also see what response there is before
following it up more (other lists, CDSS directly, ..).
Nice to see another Canadian posting on this list. Although I've been here
since it's inception, I must confess to typically lurking. I just can't keep
up with the volume. But do let me know if you find out anything and I'll do

an appetite. In my experience, once they sit and have cake, you'll be hard
pressed to get most people back up on the dance floor.
I like to lead from a toast, with everyone gathered
round standing, to
taking hands in a circle for the first dance, and then having the cake
after the third or fourth dance.

try that. Though, I try to go 4 - 5 dances before cake. Depends on the
I typically start with what I call the Snake Dance, which is a simple single
line of people holding hands weaving in and around tables adding people to
the line as we go, like a conga line. I encourage people that they only need
to walk to the beat of the music, one step for every beat, and they can
dance. And I have the band play some really hot tunes. It's an easy way to
get people who are reluctant and sitting in their chairs, up on their feet
and participating. If they can walk, they can dance, and they all walked
into the wedding. I eventually wind them into a big circle, stop the music
and then teach a simple circle mixer like La Bastringue. I can usually keep
them on the dance floor after that.
just my 1/50 of a buck.
Worth the same amount of a Canadian loonie these days. Woo hoo!
