I am wishing each of you the best with warmth, happiness, and shared familly and friends for the holidays. Christmas means something different to each of us, and even though I am not a religious person, I do love the holiday spirit and the giving of gifts. What I especially like, is that I get some time away from work to spend with my darling wife and dogs and even the kids, to a point. This will be one of the few Christmas that I've gotten to spend at home in a good many years, as I am usually stuck over-seas on a salvage job somewhere. Guests are already starting to arrive and the pit is cooling down for a pork shoulder or two. Turkeys are thawing for the deep-fryer and the wine cellar is full. The skeet thrower is set up and the music room is staged for our Christmas Eve concert. Bug did an outstanding job of decorating the tree with hand-tied lace bows. The weiner-dog has his sleigh and grinch hat on standby and George is already sniffing around the stuffed squirrel inside the box with her name on it. I have been so very fortunate my entire life, to have been surrounded by quality people and given the chance to learn from each of them and as I look around me, I become aware of what a blessing that really is. I extend the invitation to each of you to share in that warmth. Merry Christmas to ya'll all and to all ya'll, a happy New year.
