Default Happy Holidays, All !!!

Sorrry to have been so absent, but recovery from London and holiday prep got in the way.

Hope all is/are well. I'll be around unless I was voted off the island in my absence.

Just for fun, here's Queeg's favorite Christmas carol, often sung when I am up to my elbows in some useless project:


They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be peace on Earth
But instead it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the VIRGIN BIRTH
I remember one Christmas morning
A winters light and a distant choir
And the peal of a bell and that Christmas Tree smell
AND EYES full of tinsel and fire

They sold me a dream of Christmas
They sold me a Silent Night
And they told me a fairy story
'Till I believed in the Israelite
And I believed in Father Christmas
And I looked to the sky with excited eyes
'Till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
And I saw him and through his disguise

I wish you a hopeful Christmas
I wish you a brave New Year
All anguish pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear
They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be peace on Earth
Hallelujah Noel be it Heaven or Hell
The Christmas we get we deserve

--Emerson, Lake and Palmer

Hi Pam,
Wow, its been ages, how the heck are U.....hope you are enjoying the holidays. Just returned from 2 days of seeing the family, eating and more eating, presents, etc....

Funny thing about your song, just bought the Best of ELP and that is one of the songs, one of my favorites of theirs :-)

On my way to get some sleep, you take care!

Pam.. welcome back! We've kept your cot in the corner next to the fireplace open for you.

Now we'll get to hear all about the London trip!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

Had started wondering if you got lost looking for that one pub!

Good to see you back and hope you had a wonderful trip and Christmas.

Well Aunt Pamda, how the heck are you? Can I get out of my room now, I cleaned it up, finished my college degree, got married, had 3 kids (two are o.k., one is a bum) who are now out of college and prison, and now downing 4 daily medications to keep me on my feet.

It's been a long time since you left.

Regards,
Thomas
