Default Christmas Eve

It's Christmas Eve, and there are twenty people logged in and browsing.

What's happening? Nobody believe in Santa Claus? Not expecting that matched quad of 437As in your stockings?

Ho ho ho.

Ho ho ho - or perhaps "ha ha ha" - or perhaps again "oh dear"!

What are you having for Christmas lunch? I thought of following it with a light dessert of matched pears and currant sauce.

Tricky question after such a good suggestion especially as I am in La France Profonde.

Er, how about "groundouilles"! (groan) ('Grillé' of course... (even worse).

Dewey, our Bearded Collie, just got his Christmas bath, the UPS man just brought my eBay signal generator and it looks to be in good shape. Christmas carols are playing on the stereo and sound great. There's a big warm fire in the wood stove. All is right with the world. All that remains is to wrap the presents- there was a cartoon in the paper last week where Odie tries to wrap presents and ends up mostly wrapping himself up in tape and paper shreds- that's me when everything is going well. You can imagine the rest of the time.

*** MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!***

Lets see, its Christmas Eve, kids left home years ago, wife is out of town. At 6 PM local time it is about 80 degrees F outside (global warming?) and I was swimming in an unheated pool today. What else have I got to do tonight? Today has been the first day in a while that I have had the time to play with electricity.

For those in the US who have seen the Home Depot commercial, yes I believe in Santa Claus, because he did bring me that table saw (it was half price on black friday) and I was outside making sawdust today too. Maybe now I can make a respectable looking amplifier chassis!

Waiting for the glue to dry on my home made Christmas ornaments I'm handing out at the family dinner tonight. Found a good use for all those DH tubes that gave their all but I couldnt bring myself to toss out. Those silver'ed globe 101's look mighty pretty all gussied up

Merry Chistmas!!
