Merry Christmas!
« on: December 18, 2009, 03:40:37 AM »
I have just seen the terrible weather in the UK on the Daily Mail website.  There seems to be snow just about everywhere.  I guess the children will be happy, but I don't know so much for the 'older' members.  Personally I am just happy to be here with the temperature a pleasant 34deg.  Although I know some other parts of this vast country are experiencing dreadful hot coniditons, no doubt our turn will come.

So I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy, healthy New Year!  Please take care, don't drink and drive and keep warm!

A Very Merry Christmas to all of you. It is -4 Degrees outside we had about 8 inches of Snow so i could not get out of my Village today, I will try again later as we are to have more on Monday and most of next week. I wish this Global Warming would hurry up!!!
