I'm here in Colorado with Preppie and having fun in the snow. Peaches called and says Happy Holidays to all. I have read the stuff while I was on the road. I'll be back Jan 3rd. So I'll be stopping in now and then. Hi Little Angel go to see so Santa wont miss dropping off your gifts. I really miss you guys but I know everyone is enjoying their friends and family. Talk to you want I get on the computer again. Oh did you all hear SPB got engaged to his girlfriend so I heard. Who's next?

Fitz Merry Christmas and I'll never sue you;-)

Jackie, glad to hear about Peaches, I have been thinking about our soldiers.
SPB congradulations, best to you. I can see why she would like a smart and steady guy like you.

Is everyone ready for Santa? NORAD is tracking him you know. What a world when a kid can say "Can we log on and see where Santa is before I go to bed?" LOL

Merry Christmas!

This year, as last year, we sang this carol at the carol servicdI attended in my church last Sunday.

And this year, the words, "The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight" hit me once again, between the eyes, just as they had done the last time I had sung it a year before.

"hopes and fears"!

What are my hopes and fears for the forthcoming year?

What are yours!

It's half past twelve here in the UK, I've prepared the carrots and spruts, yet to wrap the prezzies, then I'll be ready to go!

A happy Christams everybody!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~O Little Town of Bethlehem !

O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And Peace to men on earth

How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven.
No ear may his His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him still,
The dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born to us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Rector Phillips Brooks (1835-1903) of Philadelphia, wrote the words to the carol O Little Town of Bethlehem in 1868, following a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. He is said to have been inspired by the view of Bethlehem from the hills of Palestine especially at night time hence the lyrics of O Little Town of Bethlehem. His church organist Lewis Redner (1831-1908) wrote the melody to O Little Town of Bethlehem for their Sunday school children's choir.

Redner was Brooks’ organist at Holy Trinity Church in Boston, Massachusetts. The tune came to him on Christmas Eve, and was first sung the next day.

A Very Merry Christmas. It's a busy day, but wanted to check in.
Jackie, glad Peaches is well!

Great tree PJF. Thanks for the message.

Hope Santa is good to everyone. Our granddaughter had to get two
cookies out for Santa last night. She just turned eight, so there won't be many more requests until the next batch is ready.

What I want to know is: did Fitz get to open the pink edible panties that I gave him for Xmas? I hope those panties fit around those butt cheeks of his. You may want to lay off those Krispy Kremes for a while so that you can slip into those panties.. I gave Kenny Mehlman the same panties.

Merry Christmas everyone and I hope Santa was good to you. Here's hoping the evil doers were omitted from Santa's stops this year.

I got a stash of "egg nog" flavored coffee for a x-mas present, I do not enjoy egg nog but the coffee is not bad at all. Especially good with homemade sugar cookies and candies, yummy.

Merry Christmas to the troops, thanks and prayers to all. Praying for peace on earth, healing for our planet and humanity.

Just had to post some thoughts from a friend on James Brown..Born in Georgia I grew up with this music all around me and Phil Walden who was a classmate later became the manger for many..like Otis Redding..
I will miss James Brown....


The Hardest Working Man in Show Business has left the stage.
At age 73 James Brown was and will always be a legend. Today
he passed away of heart failure related to pneumonia. The God
Father of Soul was looking forward to a New Years Eve performance
in New York. In his career he was acknowledged by performers of
every genre as a major influence on their music and also their
style of performance.

I have two personal memories of the man. One took place in the height
of riots during the Civil Rights movements. James Brown went on
National television and told the world that as a kid he polished shoes
on the steps of a radio station in Augusta Georgia, and that now he
owned that station and that was Black Power, working hard and using
your head.

When I came back from Viet Nam I was stationed at Ft. Gordon Georgia
for a time and went to Augusta a lot. On one trip my ex-wife and I
came out of a store and there by us was a Cadillac with the hood up
and a couple of obvious body guards standing by it. A very pretty
lady, who I had already seen in the newspaper and knew to be the wife
of James Brown was standing between them. No one said a word to
me other then to smile. I asked them could they use some help. They
looked surprised at a white man offering that I think. In no time I located the trouble and started their car. One of the body guards reached for his wallet and I stopped him. He asked my name and what
unit I was with out of base.

Later that week I got a call from James Brown while at work. He thanked me for helping his wife and also told me that as I would not
accept money, would I at least accept a free gift of his new After Shave
that had his name and photo on it. I said sure. It was not the best
stuff I had ever put on, but felt it was a nice gesture on is part.

The passing of James Brown will leave shoes that can never be
filled. No one put as much of themselves into their art then did he.
Sadly he played just as hard too. Those indiscretions will fade though
and what will be remembered is the only thing that should be, the
music and the art of the man.

James Brown, now on the Night Shift.

Poor record-keeping plagues Bush AIDS effort
Report finds $15 billion program unable to verify claims of success

Why is it so much of the nation's money entrusted to Bush ends up missing or unaccounted for? This and in Iraq? There is some flimsy or no excuse--is the taxpayers money being stolen again?

Good Evening Everyone:

It's almost 11:00pm here in the desert. Another Christmas gone by too fast..

After a house full of guests, too much food, a ton of laughs, and good times...this cowgirl is totally worn out! I feel like I've ridden the range all day, roped the cattle and cooked the dinner too! :)

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas too! :)

Top o' the mornin' all.....I am the only creature stirring here at the moment. Tiny babies are sleeping, the dogs are camped out all around the wood stove (you need a pogo stick to get around), grown up kids are trying to sleep in. It's kinda nice. I just put the coffee on so things will start up soon.

Anon@11:07.....read that also. It would seem that the largest flaw in
the Bush AIDS doctrine is that the $$$$ have been put into preaching abstinence. The unchristian wrong have convinced the administration that this is better than condoms. I guess we can see how well their advice is turning out....again!

Hope Santa was good to everyone and everyone stayed save and well. Have a great day.

Are Bush and Cheney Planning an Early Attack on Iran?
DAVE LINDORFF
Counterpunch
Sunday, December 24, 2006

Back on October 9, I wrote in The Nation that it looked like the Bush-Cheney gang, worried about the November election, was gearing up for an unprovoked attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, with a carrier strike group led by the USS Eisenhower being ordered to depart a month early from Norfolk, VA to join the already-on-station USS Enterprise. That article was based on reports from angry sailors based on the Eisenhower who had leaked word of their mission.

Anthrax Attacks on U.S. Congress Were Inside Job
by Sherwood Ross

ANTHRAX ATTACK ON U.S. CONGRESS
MADE BY FT. DETRICK, MD., SCIENTIST
AND COVERED UP BY FBI, EXPERT SAYS

By Sherwood Ross (305) 205-8281

The perpetrator of the 2001 anthrax attack on Congress likely was a government scientist employed at the Army's Ft. Detrick, Md., bioterrorism lab having access to a "moonsuit" that made it possible to safely process and manufacture super-weapons-grade anthrax, a bioterrorism authority says.

The truth must be told to the world. The mass murderers and their enablers must be held accountable for their actions. The dead, their survivors, the rescue workers now sick, the innocents in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere in the states and around the world deserve justice.

Bonehead's New Year's Resolutions (Courtesy of Newsweek):

The following is a list of the president's New Year’s resolutions:

“I resolve to pay close attention to the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group’s report, as soon as it comes out on a books-on-tape version.

“I resolve to make sure that by the end of 2007, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki gets to spend more time with his family.

“I resolve to tell John Kerry that I thought his Iraq joke was hilarious and he should keep ‘em coming.

“I resolve to learn how to use the Internets, especially the Google.

“I resolve to invite Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to a peacemaking lunch at Taco Bell.

“I resolve to organize a hunting trip for Dick Cheney and Nancy Pelosi.

“I resolve to expand the search for Osama bin Laden to include MySpace.

“I resolve to clear all of the brush at my Crawford ranch, except for that patch I use to hide from Cindy Sheehan.

“I resolve to continue my opposition to gay parents, unless one of them is named Cheney.

“I resolve to improve relations with Latin America by building a 700-foot fence around Barbara and Jenna.

“And finally, my fellow Americans, I resolve to announce an exit strategy, in which I will withdraw all of our troops from Iraq—through Iran.”
