    For the holdiays, my preference is to go back to the pagan roots that planted the seeds of all our current major seasonal holidays, but I'm good with those who celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and any other celebration that brings people together for all the right reasons. So this year I'm going to start with Saturnaila, and then slowly move into Yule. Please note that if anyone lives in Tampa and is having a party, I'll drink whatever you're drinking. :D

    I blame it on my Anglo-Norman and Irish bloodlines, along with the 22 years I lived in Canada. After all what the hell else is there to do in Canada in the Winter? :cool:

    I'm so sorry, I didn't know, but it's possible to still live a near normal life. :rolleyes:

    I'm a cycling enthusiast! I ride at least 11 or more miles every morning for 5 days or more a week. I don't have any snow to shovel but I do have a lawn to mow, and a swimming pool to shock, backwash, and clean.
