Well we've made it till yule without the world getting blown up! I'm sure it has not been for the lack of effort of those trying to do so, but more due to the fact that those trying to stop them have had greater success and I for one am grateful because it gives me the time to write this blog and do other things than grab guns and fight to survive! so to all of you who serve on behalf of the rest of us :
Now on to this weeks blog post.:
1. It has been suggested that reminders for this newsletter be sent out via an opt- in list serve rather than direct e-mails to the folks on my lists. So I figured I'll give it a shot . Here's the link if you want to opt-in

2. Most venues are closed for the holidays so enjoy a relaxing week with family and friends.
Here's a poem to round it out.
The Yule 2011
By Laughing Larry Berger
The weather chills and we find that
the temperature is STILL warmer than
a snowflake can find tolerable and we're in
for a green Christmas this year.
one war has ended after 10 years
there are many other things which have finished too.
we lost a lot of special people this year
and gained a few more.
May your log burn brightly enough to embrace all of 2012!
Neat huh? books make great last minute shopping gifts!
