Dogs’ Noses, Difficult People and Back to the Past

Shoreline Meeting Report 24 June 2019

Lloyd welcomed everyone, including guests Jenny and Rose and introduced Toastmaster Wendy. Running was her theme and she had a variety of quotes on the subject. Another quote, unrelated, was useful for table topics. “Just open your mouth and speak into the space!”

Cookies, Clive and Creativity

Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies were the highlight of the meeting. Adrienne relaxes by grabbing four hot out ot the oven, lying on her couch and reading. She told us their history starting in USA in 1938 using broken up chocolate instead of melted chocolate. At the end of the meeting we were treated to lots of the crunchy but chewy cookies Adrienne had made. Visitors David and Natalie came on the right night.

Oxana and Valentine, Simon Says and Buck's Tiny Giant

Valentines Day was the theme of Oxana's first meeting as Toastmaster. Valentine rebelled against his Emperor's edict that men should not marry because they were reluctant to go to war. He conducted secret marriages and was consequently sentenced to death. While awaiting his fate he fell in love with the gaoler's daughter and his last message to her was signed "From your Valentine". He deserved his sainthood - and Oxana praise for her competent running of the meeting.
