Merry Christmas

by Volker Weber

Thank you for sending all those cards and gifts. It was hard to get them all into one picture, so if you don't see your card, it may be hiding. :-) But we read them all, and we are going to read them again when we remove them in January.

Here is a great Christmas list, brought to you by Barb Hefner, via Simon Phipps who calls it "worth taking to heart for the next week at a minimum":

Mend a quarrel.
Seek out a forgotten friend.
Dismiss suspicion, and replace it with trust.
Write a love letter.
Share some treasure.
Give a soft answer.
Encourage youth.
Manifest your loyalty in word and deed.
Keep a promise.
Find the time.
Forego a grudge.
Forgive an enemy.
Listen.
Apologize if you were wrong.
Try to understand.
Flout envy.
Examine your demands on others.
Think first of someone else.
Appreciate.
Be kind.
Be gentle.
Laugh a little.
Laugh a little more.
Deserve confidence.
Take up arms against malice.
Decry complacency.
Express your gratitude.
Welcome a stranger.
Gladden the heart of a child.
Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.

I see you on the other side.

I want to congratulate you and sincerely thank you for your daily work, your sense of humor, your stamina, your calculated brevity in pointing out the obvious, your technical ability at finding, summarizing and accurately linking to items I'd never be aware of otherwise, your willingness to let an "uncensored" community hang out on your doorstep while you foot the bill, your keen photographic eye, your time, your wit, your useful technical tips, your superb sense of simple graphic design and organization, your ability to attract some truly funny and brilliant readers, your generosity, and for your knack at keeping things fresh.

Merry Xmas

Wow. Cards are great, but wine and pandoro? I need to get more interesting on my blog. :P

I second what Villi posted above. I don't comment as much as I might because others tend to get it better than I do anyway but I do appreciate what you have here and the effort that it takes to make it go.

Merry (belated) Christmas and Happy 2006!
