    Yes indeed. Unless I hear otherwise I am shooting for "Sat 29 Feb
    2020 09:00:00 PM EST" as per the usual time for every cybertoast thus
    far.

    A toast on the odd-day-out.... may it be an auspicious one for both of
    us... <G>

    Happy Leap Day!

    Hallo Nancy!

    Happy Leap Day!

    It worked perfectly at this end. Thank you! We'll definetly have to do this again ... in four years. Good thing we have two others to take up the slack in
    the meantime.

    Het leven is goed,

    Yes, I see that it rolled off the cybertoast list.... and should be
    coming back on for the countdown to the next leap day in four years...
    And yup, back to the two standard toast days... ;)

    Hallo Nancy!

    Yes, I see that it rolled off the cybertoast list

    As advertised. :-)

    and should be coming back on for the countdown to the next leap
    day in four years

    That should happen on 2023-01-01.

    And yup, back to the two standard toast days

    That works for me. :-)

    I am happy we decided to do this.

    I did see the correction, next message... but, yes, as corrected... :)

    As am I... :) It's nice to have a chance to share the good stuff, even
    if it is somewhat virtual... ;)

    Hallo Nancy!

    It's nice to have a chance to share the good stuff

    That is what makes it all worthwhile. I see we have a bit of a stretch to the next one over which I'll start saving some pennies for ... although these days given the cost of the good stuff, saving dimes is probably the more practical base saving currency over pennies. Also they no longer make pennies on this side of the fence as they cost more to make then they were worth.

    Het leven is goed,

    3000 pennies, 600 nickels, 300 dimes.... depends on how many one has
    available to save along the way.... ;) Or maybe it's twice that,
    nowadays.... ;)

    Also they no longer make pennies on this side of the fence as they
    cost more to make than they were worth.

    That may be.... they keep threatening to get rid of pennies over here,
    but so far it hasn't happened... I still carry and use them... :)
