Merry Christmas everyone. (That's a good line. Someone will put it in a book one day or a film).

The traditionally correct line, Crom, is 'God bless us, everyone', the sentiment that has, for 170 years, stretched the rule about not slapping crippled children to breaking point and beyond.

Scanning the papers from the past year, there seems to be an increase in the circle of friends who have left this earthly activity. Even within the forum, many have left us involuntarily.

I salute Thamesider who was the one who invited me - at BoB's indulgence - to join FUME and then this one.
For those still clinging to our respective twigs, may your festive observations prove charming and leave you with hope for the New Year.

To those who are comforting themselves with mulled wine and multiple roasts, think of us down here, maintaining a stiff upper lip wrapped around a dual roast in 35 degree heat with 37 for Boxing Day and over 40 for the weekend.
Good thing they breed them tough down here. Break out the 50+ sun block and the bathers.

You're breaking my heart GG, as I sit here wearing two pair of socks while my feet continue to freeze. But the weather forecasts are good, promising that, unlike last year, we will not be dealing with a flooded house on Christmas day and wearing wellies while eating our Christmas dinner.

So I'll wish the few of us that remain a very Merry Christmas and many Happy New Years to come.
