It's actually part of the kingdom of Denmark, but:

Wikipedia wrote:Greenland (Kalaallisut: Kalaallit Nunaat meaning "Land of the Greenlanders"; Danish: Grønland) is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Though physiographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe (specifically Norway and Denmark) for about a millennium. The largest island in Greenland is also named Greenland, and makes up most of the country's land area.

Relaxing properly can be a lot harder than you might think. I used to do yoga and getting properly relaxed is really beneficial, but surprisingly difficult. :)

And yes, your jaw needs to be relaxed as well. :wink:

But be wary of relaxing too much... I remember doing Yoga and really struggled not to let out a little botty burp with some of those poses! In fact is one of them called the wind pose? :wink:

In a class (school class) you never really do anything properly, just kinda look sheepishly at each other and hope you don't look at stupid as you think you look :oops:

Today I learnt that Italy has the fourth largest national gold reserve.

And also how to resize a photo for usage as my avatar.

I think that's it for now.

Indeed.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!
