    Condolences to Gimli-(V), whose father died.

    Congratulations to Nob-(V)!
He is getting married, the date set for July 16, 2017. May you two be very happy!
       Here's his letter:
On October 20th, I was discussing household finances with my girlfriend of 3 years, considering merging our finances. I was at work at the time, so we were discussing this over Google Hangouts.
I realized what we were talking about, and asked her “…do you just want to make it official?” followed up with “I’m not sure if I’m joking.”
Yes, I proposed over Google Hangouts.
We’re getting married on July 16th, and I couldn’t be happier!

    Congratulations to Marigold-(V)! She's expecting a baby this coming spring!
