Merry/Happy Christmas!
« on: December 24, 2016, 07:34:35 pm »
It's still Christmas Eve in my time zone, but it's already Christmas Day in Europe, so Happy/Merry Christmas!
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Merry Christmas
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Merry Christmas! 

Was up quite late after having sung for Midnight Mass, so I slept in.  Had our traiditional Christmas breakfast of filet mignion with mushrooms and champaigne.  I then listened to Handel's "Messiah" and Berlioz' "L'Enfance du Christ". 

Did a turkey breast in the pressure cooker, which makes good gravy, so I did pureed cauliflower (the diabetic-friendly substitute for mashed potatoes) and watched the Patrick Stewart "Christmas Carol".  Later, I'll read the JRRT "Father Christmas Letters."

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night. My Christmas was good, if exhausting since I hosted our Christmas Eve Ham Yam Jam and Clam Thank You Ma'am Christmas Eve supper at my place. Lots of family merriment and good food. It was a book Christmas, with everyone giving and receiving many books.

Christmas Hugs from
Melissa

Books are always a staple of  Christmas giving in our family too. But strict protocols have to be in place. No reading until we have dined, watched the Queen's Speech and gone for a walk. And no one may read another's book until the recipient has finished it.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, whether Merry or Happy, and will also have a happy and fortuitous New Year!
