The contra is, Live Long and Prosper, written by Mike Richardson of Seattle for Bob McQuillen's 70th birthday. According to Mike part of the inspiration for this one was To Have and To Swing which was written by Mark Elvins for Rhodri's wedding.

The square is an impromptu call based around the Beer Mug Chain move, or to be more precise a variation on the Beer Mug - the way we did it is not quite as it is in the manual!.
