It’s interesting to note that J.R. Tolkien, author of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, once said “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world!”….

But die with all their music in them! – Oliver Wendell Holmes
Since once I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid on a dolphin’s back
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song,
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres
To hear the sea-maid’s music. – A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Cheers to an eat drink & be merry kinda day!
