There will be a bowl for donations towards hall hire and our move.

What would the beauty of the rainbow be without all the different colours? Together they create this magic.
Together millions of tiny rain drops form the pixels making up the rainbow,
create something beyond and higher than their own tiny individuality.
And since the times of the Old Testament the rainbow reminds us
on God's promise to stay with us -
he will not create another flood - if we remember and respect God.

Sunday 10 June 2001: Summer Rainbow PARTY 6-11pm. I moved into the garden facing room! - AND we have new lodgers: Michelle and Gopal, our lovely Hare Krishna friends.
- AND my friend Ilona Zelenevska, Latvian artist and designer is staying with me..
We had at least 30% guests whom I only knew from their email address - and they haven't seen me before. A very lifely bubbely event, including lots of happy kids...
Sunday 23 Sept '01, 5 - 11pm: Rainbow Network PARTY and Autumn Equinox celebration. Less people came (after September 11th) and we didn't start the fire in the garden. We had a lovely baby as a special guest.
A Saturday in February '02: not too many people came, the rain was a bit cold and we were too lazy to start the fire in the back of the garden.
Sat 20 July '02: several new - and some "old" faces came - again a wonderful mixture; after a downpour we spent most of the evening around the fire until afte 2am.
Sat 21 June '03 from 4pm - 12pm: semi-public Garden Party on the occasion of Ralph's 50th birthday. 1st party at Ralph's new home. Wonderful people, big garden and a gazebo.
Sat 28 Feb '04 from 8pm at Bharat Bhavan (Old Library, Mill Road / bridge). 30 people would normally be a full house - in this spacious hall it did not feel like full at all. Some of us enjoyed circle dancing with live music and a few dared free style dancing to taped music.
Sat 4 Sept 04 from 7pm, Bharat Bhavan.
About 40 people had delicious shared food, circle dances with live music, an Indian dance presentation from Vidya (who also brought her crystal skulls), a peace dance and a chant. Wonderful atmosphere.
Originally we thought this would be the farewell party for Vitalija & Ralph
