    Thanks everyone, we had a really good night, and we drank
    the toast at 7:55, and another one at 8:05, just to make sure!

    Julie was in a happy mood, although she may well have lost
    most of her family last night, apart from one sister who was
    df'd as a teenager and had the good sense never to go back
    to the watchtower. Her brother phoned her on her mobile to
    express his feelings about her "disgrace" as he called it, so
    she won't be seeing much of him from now on. No matter, the
    way Julie looks at it is that she may have lost him, but she's
    gained a lot more.

    We drank toasts to Randy Watters, Danny Haszard, Quotes,
    silentlambs, and all of you at JWD, who have all had a part in
    Julie breaking free of the watchtower. Julie wanted to play a
    special song for the occasion, and asked me to post a link to
    it. It's Chimes of Freedom, by Bob Dylan, which contains this
    line, kind of appropriate

    Tolling for the rebel, tolling for the rake
    Tolling for the luckless, the abandoned an' forsaked
    Tolling for the outcast, burnin' constantly at stake
    An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

    Well done Julie. Being df'd will be the best thing that has ever happened to you. It is definitely the best thing that has happened to me.

    Here's to freedom.

    I don't know what time it is there right now, Trev. But surely I have missed the original toast.

    But here is a late one.

    It's almost 11:30 am here Jeff, the morning after the night before
    for Julie. She was a bit tipsy last night, and just may have reached
    for the paracetamols this morning - we haven't heard from her yet.
    Her bf and herself are having a few days holiday, so they have plenty
    of recovery time
