    @Shoshin1 thank you. I reached out to them about a month ago and was informed that it is kind of shut down until further notice. They didn't seem to keen on talking or meeting unfortunately 😥

    To do with covid 19 lockdown ?

    @Shoshin1 I do not believe so. If I understood correctly, they were no longer going to be meeting at this particular yoga studio thing any longer and it was up in the air as to when they were going to meet again.

    I’m just over the bridge, in Memphis. =) Nice to meet you. Kinda far for a regular meet...but ya never know. Walking the Big River Crossing is pretty meditative . There are several sects/temples over here that occasionally have big stuff, so I’ll let you know if it’s something that might be worth the drive.

    Me. <3

    I am from most places. 'Here' is where the heart is. Hear?
    Of course you do. Now I just got to 'Quit Being Ugly' as we natives say …

    Believe it or not the Buddhas come to us …

    Question:

    Why is Kansas pronounced with an S on the end but Ar-Kansas is not?

    Here’s the details according to Google. Arkansas is pronounced the way it is because it’s a French plural for the name of a Native American tribe. Kansas is the English spelling of a similar tribe. Since the s is normally silent in French words, that was what stuck

    French is bloody weird.

    Ouef. Egg. pronounced "erf"

    Oeufs. Eggs. Pronounced "Euh".

    So, you add a letter, but don't pronounce TWO of them. Sheesh.
