Season's Geetings to you Ebon, and to all the other Bnetters as well.

"To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture."-- Thomas Paine: The Crisis No. V (March 21, 1778)

Happy Holidays to those who celebrate. 


I've been gone from home for 8 nights now.  My youngest daughter gave us an early present, a new grand-daughter weighing in at 8 lbs 3 oz.  Lanova (family name) will be one week old on Christmas. I came early to help out due to daughter needing to be on bed rest.  So you may have noticed I was MIA.....Surprised   If not, no biggie.


My daughter had her two sisters, her husband and Mama cheering her on as she had a natural birth without any drugs.


I will not be at our large family gathering for Christmas, but here with daughter, her husband, baby and my hubby is coming here tomorrow.  He misses me!!! Bless his heart he is not used to me being gone from home without him.


A very Happy New Year to all.  May all your wishes and dreams come true in the year ahead


Good thing we made it past 12/21/2012 and are still here. Smile


Happy Winter Solstice to all.  Stay warn where ever you are.


Peace to all,  Love one another... Stardove

Happy Whatever to all!

I'm watching the George C. Scott version of Dickens' A Christmas Carol which always puts me in a holiday mood.

We celebrated Solstice with a lobster feast and will join friends tomorrow night at our favorite Chinese restaurant for a traditional Jewish Christmas dinner. (Yes, it virtually is a tradition for Jews to go out for Chinese food on Christmas Day.)

Congratulations, Stardove!


Happy Holidays to all, and of course Merry Christmas to my Christian friends!


May peace and joy be with everyone!  May we all take advantage of the season to celebrate our common humanity, in whatever way brings us happiness.


I'll be going to early church tonight, then to a family gathering (30+ people).  Tomorrow will be just our family.


Catch you all on the flip side.

To Stardove -


Heartfelt congrats on your new granddaughter!  Smile  And good to hear that all went well with mother and baby.


And, in general:


We welcome the summer solstice which arrived here last week.  We are happy to have warm weather at last, to see the sun, hear the calls of the Tuis, and enjoy the many flowering plants and trees.


We could do without the crowded shopping mall, however, and all the vapid TV Christmas programmes.
