That’s just plain sad…

December 21, 2013

Passing the local strip mall yesterday and a sign stuck in the roadside grass said “Starbucks. Open on Christmas Day”.

I’m all for Sunday opening of shops, mainly because Sunday just isn’t ‘Sunday’ any more,  but come on, even I think we should honor Christmas Day. Anyway, I for one will NOT be visiting Starbucks (or anywhere else for that matter) next Wednesday.








Bah Humbug…

So far I have pretty much successfully managed to avoid most Christmas music this year, at least on the radio where some stations seem to start playing it in September.  And what a blessed relief it has been too. I do have to admit though that I was in Home Depot last week for over an hour (don’t ask) and by the time I escaped I really had had enough of Christmas music.

Still, crimbo approaches so maybe time to get in the mood….




The Packaging is as much fun as the toy…

A bloody CHRISTMAS Tree!


It’s not (as the nearby town of Cary insists) a Community tree, nor is it a holiday tree, it’s a CHRISTMAS Tree.


And so, in the sprit of CHRISTMAS I’d like to wish my reader (I should be so lucky) a very Merry CHRISTMAS. Got that, it’s CHRISTMAS !


PS. If you want to celebrate something else, that’s fine by me but it’s still CHRISTMAS and I’m gonna wish you a Merry CHRISTMAS. So don’t get your knickers in a twist over it, OK?

Without snow is just so wrong.

All the same, Merry Christmas to everyone where ever you are.

White Christmas…
