Quote of the Week
We cannot put off living until we are ready.
Jose Ortega y Gasset

Last Week
For those of us who went to Portugal last week @the5 style, it was an enjoyable evening with good food, excellent fellowship and lots of guests. The weather couldn't have been better, although the evening cooled off a bit as it does in Nevada County. pP Carolyn Inglis served as President of the Day in her usual class act manner. She shared information about Portugal and tried to teach us some Portuguese words which most of us promptly forgot! What great fun it was to meet and greet in a social situation and to get to know each other and member guests just a little bit better. Next year we are off to Sydney, Australia - see you there!

Foundation Giving
There are just a few days left to get our Foundation contributions to RI to meet our 2012-13 commitment and 100% Every Rotarian, Every Year (EREY) status. If you haven't contributed yet this year either through direct giving or the Keep the Change program, please bring a check or your spare change box to today's meeting. The amount isn't as important as the involvement. Next week we will publish the names of everyone who has contributed during the current year. Be sure your name is on that list!

Club BBQ & Swim
We are moving the July 11th meeting to Saturday July 13th on the river at the Stewart's home. As well as a club social event, this is Dennis's first official club meeting as president. Kim invites everyone to come early and enjoy an afternoon on the river. More details later.

Vocabulary Lesson
This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks - this will cause you to have one of those arguments.

This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade.

This means "something," and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with "Fine"

GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows)
This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine"

GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows)
This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care" You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.
