Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve is the big day of Christmas here in Sweden, so - Merry Christmas everybody!

And I can't resist Li'l BUB's Magical Yule LOG video. You can keep watching it for a whole hour! :mrgreen:

I just ran across this timely vimeo from vimeo and this seems to be the place to put it.

A clever Merry Christmas from Randall. I suppose that big one with the heavy spike in infrared is the fireplace. :mrgreen:

A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near,
A little gift from one held dear,
Best wishes for the coming year.

These make a Merry Christmas!

~ John Greenleaf Whittier ~
Know the quiet place within your heart and touch the rainbow of possibility; be
alive to the gentle breeze of communication, and please stop being such a jerk.

With regards to the Chinese import Christmas lights that are sold everywhere, the ones that when one bulb goes out the entire line goes out as well.
1st I'd like to say that I hate that and secondly I wonder if you live in China and your next door neighbors porch light goes out does the whole city go dark too,
Country ???

Yes, Chinese people must all be so stupid that their whole electric grid is just like a string of cheap Christmas lights. That was sarcasm, in case you thought I was agreeing with you.

The Chinese factory was probably meeting the requirements of some Western economic rationalist who thought he could save a few bucks.

Yes, I know. And I'm letting you know it was in poor taste. Just think about it.

A few weeks back Kathi, Bojo, and I took a dammed, fine hike.
