The smiles are produced naturally....no  call to brighten. Voices are truly lovely. Standing ovation rose from the overflowing congregation at the close on the mass. There is no diva just good nature of country fellowship....did I say NO DIVAS.  The Church is small with the  celebration joyously grand. Can u find jpr?

Thoughts for the new year

Holmes says to Watson:

“I consider that a man’s brain originally is like a little
empty attic, you have to stock it with such furniture
as you choose.  A fool takes in all the lumber of every
sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge
which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at
best is jumbled up, so that he has a difficulty laying
his hands upon it. Now the skillful workman is very
careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain-attic.”

And in the words of Einstein  

‘never memorize what you can look up.’

Dec the 26th my dear



It's over......when the wife says its over!

Christmas Dip


The Brisiish believe in th Christmas swim, often in fancy dress.   Participants brave the cold water to raise money for charity.  Sorry, not me brother.

Sorry bout dat

Christian kids learn the nativity story from infancy.  Most play some part in a traditional nativity play.  Churches, town squares, and malls world wide post nativity scenes.  Countless songs, poems, movies praise the event.  SORRY BUT IT NEVER HAPPENED.  Biblical scholars have concluded that there is no truth in the biblical portrayal of Jesus' birth. 

Advent in Glasgow

The annual Santa run throught the streets of Glasgow, Scotland.  Thousands of Santas.

Happy B Day Max

Today is the birthday of Nobel prize winning mathematician Max Bon, the grandfather of Olivia Newton-John.  He has a wonderful concept of evil, 'all evil is caused by belief in complete truths, final truths, and absolute certainty.  All are really figments of the imagination.'
