Why is it that we no longer think of geographical locations when we say, "bath" or "spa?" If we think, "bath," we think of a livestock trough that's been dragged indoors and filled with clean water. We think of "spa" as the livestock trough with jets of water shooting through it. Bath is in the UK and Spa is in Belgium, but how many know that today? Let's all go to Spa, Belgium, hop into one of its mineral springs, and write about it!

Interesting that Bath is a spa! Bath or Spa, we're going to get wet, unless we're racing car fans: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...de_Spa-Francorchamps

Can't speak for others but I hadn't realised that was our word...I just thought it was a query about the word spa. I'll have one with you tomorrow (Dentist appointment today in a city an hour and a half away.)

Two lims each from three people. Off to a good start, and they're all polite!* Neither the late Proofreader nor I have submitted one, so that's probably why.

Well, OK, one's light blue Smile

Sorry Geoff, I can't seem to get everything done right now, including the game I started.

Entries are in from most of the regulars. How about some from the irregulars? Kalleh, where's yours? And Shufitz?? Tinman???

That's OK, Sattva. Glad you're feeling well enough to be too busy!

I sent one, and I think my hubby did as well. Sorry for the delay. I have been out of town for almost 2 weeks straight. At one point, I gave 7 presentations in 5 days. Things are slowing down, though, thankfully.
