Dear loyal readers

there is a distinct possibility that we will not post again until 8 January.  Of course if we can rouse ourselves from our end of year revelries we may have an intermediate post.  In the mean time enjoy the next couple of weeks, love and laugh with gusto and think kind thoughts.

Reciprosity: I gave the manager of our local service station/PO/store a card and small gift thanking him for bringing a smile and joy to our community every day.  He has recently had his application for permanent residency rejected.  He is highly educated, immensely personable and a decent person.  This rejection is another blight on our country.  Today he gave me a bottle of single malt.  And I thought he was a teetotaller.
