Greetings from hot and sunny Sydney. We're experiencing terrible bush fires not far from us at the moment. The weather is not helping it's been very hot, around 34 deg C, with hot gusty winds. Not the best conditions for Christmas but still a time to be thankful.My thoughts and prayers are for the brave firefighters who are battling the flames.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.

Holiday greetings from "fairly warm" and dry Colorado. (There's a few patches of snow around, but you really have to look for them.)

May you and your families be blessed with health and happiness in the year to come. And may we all "be" the peace we wish for the world.

Jill, your recent post has put at rest the deep seated fears of a local waterside community. While sailing Lake Windermere many years ago I was able to photo a strange disturbance in the water and the attached snap has caused fear and controversy to rage around this normally peaceful community ever since.. Your mention of the cult of the inner tube has obviously some connection with this very photo, and proves conclusively the origins of the cult in our own native waters. This mystical image obviously shows a high priest of the cult performing some ancient rite or sacrifice, the large size of the inner tube denoting his status.

I like your card and thanks for you kind comments.

The best for the New Year to you and all the others in this forum.

Are you a history buff?? I follow history in general, but I'm most interested in the period of American History between 1750-1850. I've read about 20 books about this period and I have as many in waiting. I'm planning on expanding my studies to include British history of the same period and how it relates to their policies toward the Colonies.

For an accurate and very readable overview of benevolent English rule of the empire get hold of the historical trilogy by Christopher Hibbert, out of print but easily available. In fact anything of Hibberts is good stuff.
