TRAVELLING LIGHT
VAYA CON DIOS
Come on handsome
Put a quarter in that thing again
It don't matter
If the song is the same
Pull me closer
You and I have nothing to explain
Storm (1) is threatening/threatens
Shelter a while from the rain.
CHORUS:
'Cos tonight the wind (2) is blowing/blows
And the sea (3) is running/runing high
All you troubles little darling
Let them drift with the tide
There's a full moon above us
That (4) is shining/is sinning out so bright
Why worry about tomorrow?
You're young and you (5) are travelling/travel light

Come on sailor
Put in a quarter in that thing again
It don't matter
If it's always the same
Hold me closer
You and I may never meet again
Maybe somewhere
Down old memory lane...

CHORUS…

Well, yes, or sort of... I hope...

Epipheo does prove to provide epiphany...

See what Epipheo's YouTube Channel and Nicholas Carr have to say about overusing the media of their very message...

Happy Birthday, Leaplings!



Ever wondered why Leap Day babies have to wait 1460 days for the next birthday cake?



Frustrating as it might seem, leaplings (Leap Day babies) are rather lucky - they are exceptional by birth!
(And exceptionally patient.)



Here is a marvellous video by Epipheo which explains why we have this extra day every four years:



And also... 


For the eager brides-to-be... Now is the time to seize your chance! If he's been procrastinating for far too long, that's the day you could make your dreams come true! 
And he will have no way out! 
Or will get away with twelve pairs of gloves ...
