    Thanks mannye, you too!

    On a humorous related note, I heard that someone was allowed to set up a Fesitvus pole made out of beer cans at the Florida State Capitol this year. You could have gone there to air your grievances.

    I saw the article earlier this year and laughed and laughed. Then I started making plans for my annual airing of grievances next year on the steps of the capital.

    Ah yes, Festivus for the rest of us. <grin>

    Hope one and all had/have a happy, healthy and safe holiday. Don't drink and drive... you might hit a bump and spill your precious mead.

    Luckily, I have a benefactor who did much better than this for me, and they have my grateful thanks.

    Default Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and whatever holidays you celebrate

    Ahh yes.... great to be spending some time back in the Chicago area. Now, to get all that stuff that I can't get over there (and figure out a way to avoid exceeding luggage weight limit).

    OH, and I got a refractometer from my son for Christmas. I understand there are conversion tables of some kind I need. Is that so? It looks like it is this one....

    LOL, I think I had around 4000 posts before I became a patron. Late to the party you say?

    I hope everyone had a much healthier holiday than we did. <hack> <cough>
