Merry Christmas!(And Happy Domestic Terrorism to You)

ADDED: By popular request (well, one person did ask …) and with thanks to Bill St. Clair for preserving my old web postings: my recipe for Decadent Potato Casserole Great for Christmas. I believe it also appears in the delightful cookbook 101 Things to Cook ‘Til the Revolution (NFI).

Via The Digital Story of the Nativity or Christmas 2.0:

Plus: Santa Claus: America’s Most Wanted Fugitive.

Here’s an oldie but goodie: Happy Unified Holiday (Chrismukah).

And: If you’re still feeling bah humbuggy about Christmas: You may (no joke) be a terrorist.


Finally … to do the impossible and say thank you for all the bounty that you’ve sent my way just in the last few days:

H — Those were some pretty darned big “odds & ends”! Shazam. P — Robbie says, “Arrrf, grrrrrrr, arrrf!” for his tug toy and I’m loving Judy and Kathleen. Mac — magnificent magnets. I hope you sell a zillion of ’em. TH — The book is better than you think! I’m having a lot of fun with it. Mystery apricot givers (because once again, alas, there were no gift cards) — Mmmmmmmm! And more mmmmmmm! (and all you Secret Santas that I haven’t been able to thank in person, please speak up and say who you are). RL — You’ve made me fat and happy. And did I mention fat? BHM — You’ve made me happy and healthy. T-S and JS, thank you for your Christmas cards (and JS, what a gorgeous family).

To everybody whose gifts arrived earlier, to everybody whose gifts are still to come, to everybody who has — by their presence, their thoughtfulness, their links, their kindness, their wit, their courage, and their fellowship in freedom — been a gift to this blog and my life all year long. Thank you and may you live long and prosper. (And prosper some more. And more.)


See you after Christmas!

    Glad you like them Claire. There is one more package on the way. Perhaps tomorrow if the post office is open. Merry Christmas and thanks for all you do during the whole year for the rest of us.

    I’m dreaming of a white Christmas. But, if the white runs out, I’ll drink the red… Merry Christmas Claire.

    Ragnar, I’ll trade your “white” Christmas for mine! LOL It rained the other day, for some weird reason, and now all of our snow is ICE!!

    Peace, joy and love to all here, regardless of the season.

    Thank you again, Claire. 🙂
