MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL
« on: December 24, 2009, 06:17:38 PM »
i hope, however you celebrate (or don't), that you all have a wonderful day.

i plan to leave the news, TV, and computer alone and spend time with grandkids and family  :camp:

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Kathy and EVERYONE:

To many of you I am saying Merry Christmas for the 5th time, and I hope for all of us there will be many many more to come.

I'm actually not working on Christmas day, a rarity for me to not work holidays and it is so nice to have this day home with Tracey, chatting with forum friends and getting ready to make SOUR DOUGH BREAD from Uncle Bud1 who sent us his famous starter which is bubbling away and ready to be turned into the most magical bread you have ever tasted. This Christmas, our dinner will be served with love and friendship in a warm loaf of bread from a man I have grown so fond of that he is more than a friend, he is family.

There are magical gifts, and they all contain love - I hope all of you get love this Christmas.

Merry Christmas my Internet Family, I hope it is all you hope it to be and much much more.

I hope everyone had a wonderful day.
I had alot of fun with the young ones and their excitement over Santa and had some quality time and great conversation over dinner with my older children.
I got to spend time with my daughters who are home from college teaching them to cook the holiday meal.
Spending time with our loved ones is what it is all about.
I just finished up the last of the clean up from dinner and am going to put a fire in the fireplace, watch a movie and have a nice hot cup of tea from the lovely tea chest Reinbeau and Woodchopper gave me.
The perfect ending to the perfect day.
I started my day with one of the teas this morning along with the delicious cookies she made as well, it was a thoughtful gift that meant alot during all this hustle and bustle of the season, to know someone is thinking of you.
I am grateful to have such generous and thoughtful friends.
I wish the same blessings of family and good friends for everyone.
To all a good night.

Thanks, we did, and I hope you did too. 
Now we'll spend the next two weeks picking up pieces of toys and trying to fix them and keep fresh batteries in them.  Then the two weeks after that we'll have to listen to the kids complain that they're bored and all the toys are broke, and then after that we'll be free from the ghosts of christmas past. :roll:

Kathyp and everyone:

    Yes,I too hope everyone had a pleasant Christmas.  My wife, as usual had to prepare a dinner, deliver and serve it, which she did quite well, as she always does.  I refer to these as her "ordeals" and occasionally remind her that Bill Buckley's sister "Christmased herself to death"

     Anyway, it seems , in our family at least, that women don't last nearly as long as they used to. In my day, a well chosen woman, if not mistreated too badly, would last a lifetime.  The younger members of our family now seem to split up, some even before getting around to getting married and amuse themselves fighting over sharing the kids for holidays and child support.

     The current favorite is a 6 year old girl.  I was amused to observe that of all the expensive things she received her favorite seemed to be a 99 cent deck of "OLD MAID" cards.  I was interested in seeing if the principal character was by now a "matrimonically challenged female", but although she didn't look as wretched as the figure I remembered, she was still labeled the "old maid".  Sounds like the basis for a class action suit if there ever was one! 

     For me,the modern educational system is taking some getting used to. There now is kindergarten and PREKINDERGARTEN,with diplomas and graduation celebrations requiring attendance of relatives and presumably gifts.

     The teachers in our area no longer see themselves as responsible for teaching anyone themselves; instead they see their job as motivating the parents to do the teaching. However, some of the more outspoken parents have been known to suggest the teachers urinate up a rope and do what they are getting paid for. Being a resourceful and clever bunch, the educators have come up with a solution to the dilemma.

     Our school system has, at great cost, purchased an educational plan whereby the students TEACH EACH OTHER!  It hasn't been implemented yet, but the county system to our South discontinued their similar program, replaced the partitions which had been removed at great cost to facilitate larger rooms, and went back to more conventional methods.

     I, for one, will not be satisfied with our educational system until at least 50 percent of our high school graduating class if confronted with the problem (in written form IN ENGLISH) that if their car consumed 15 gallons of fuel going 300 miles, how many miles per gallon did they get?

     That's my rant for the week.
