Having a great time in Aitutaki but pissed off that the Internet is so hit and miss! So sorry BEVS about Jenny. Merry Christmas and cheers to those having fun times, commiserations (sp?) to those having a tough time for whatever reason. Much love to you all xxx.

Product reviews are pretty worthless I find these days, companies do a real good job of making sure only the positive ones make it, mine was denied as being too critical, it was 100% truthful, but I guess they couldn't handle it.... But they did send me a $100 gift card for my troubles.

It would be lovely for you and Mr BEVS to have a quiet Christmas doing exactly what you feel like doing, instead of being on edge waiting for the phone to ring.

That sounds really nice JG, all the pleasure of family around but none of the running around and cooking. What a fantastic Christmas gift for your kids and grandkids!

BEVS this is the first year that we haven't had to worry about the "phone call" Every year one of us has had to be available for emergencies. Screws up the holiday everytime. Retirement has many perks, this is a big one!
Get away next year and turn off your phones!

l don't mind too much; I live closest and if I have to work I get paid for it. Now that I'm officially a senior I'm glad to still be working.
Try to relate it to Bukharin's theory of dialectical materialism: By getting off my ass and cleaning the washrooms and sweeping and mopping floors, in the same way boiling water in a kettle makes a quantitative change in the amount of water, but also a qualitative change in the nature of the water by turning it into steam, I'm causing not only a quantitative change in the amount of crud laying around, but also causing a qualitative change in the experience had by patrons of the arts that show up for the band tonight.

I don't want to brag about Order of Lenin, or Young Hero of Modern Socialist Production, or even Order of Lemon, which I received for outstanding feats of balance in the face of Moskovskaya Lemon Vodka. ("I didn't think it was possible for someone to lean over that far and not fall!")

If anybody hasn't received a card from an adult child of theirs (or close niece / nephew) please PM me your address and I'll send one as a sorry on their behalf.

It might arrive by next Chrimbo given the 'postal service' around these parts.

I don't remember the last time I sent anyone a Christmas card so I'm certainly not going to complain at not getting one. I suppose it must have been the last one I worked, so December 2003. But I can't remember doing it then. I certainly had no room on my desk for them.

Other than work (which always struck me as odd), I just didn't 'do' cards. Presents, yes, just not cards.

Best thing about xmas cards at work was the competition for the most boring one.

I can only speak for myself, but my issue wasn't as simple as not receiving a card or not receiving a present. I'd hazard a guess that Mike's the same.

Yeah. It's about the nature of the human relationship and what those tokens do and don't mean.
