July 7, is Tanabata day in Japan. I can't dare get into what it means, but you can make a wish by writing it on some paper and affixing it to the bamboo tree. Aaron Brown puts his on. It's not bad to do more than one, so go for it. Today is the day. Here's the Tanabata entry at Wikipedia.
Martin and Julienne affix their wishes to the GR office Bamboo!
