@PaulBiedermann Late to the party, but here's my 12: Thinking a dozen lovely thoughts of peace, harmony and friendship to all.

Eating 12" sub at 12/12/12 12:12pm.Not very inspirational, but pretty damn tasty.

Cheers to all 12 mosters.


so fun what a great way to kick off the day  - flash mob style - you never know when 12Most will get up and sing or dance. Great group of friends (I should have put dance as one of my 12) :-)
