Merry Christmas Ade and thank you for all your hard work keeping the forum going and safe for it`s users.

Just to keep things interesting I found a flat earth believer on Gumtree, he`s offering $10,000 to anyone who can scientifically prove the world is round. Sounds like the right sort of challenge for us guys: https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/miriwinni/activities-hobbies/secret-exposed-the-earth-is-flat-and-stationary-not-a-globe/1107459934

Happy holidays

Bob

It's Christmas day now, as I'm travelling to see family, it just feels like an ordinary work day so far....  :o

Last hour of Christmas day here.  It always Depresses me ( for many reasons ) at how fast it comes and then is gone again.
Needs to be 3 days I reckon so one can really take it in and make all the hard work you getting prepared worth while.

Spent today with the greater family. Boring as hell as always.  Tomorrow we are having a friends family over. been invited to their family Christmases which they hold on Boxing day for some years now.  As we are now located smack in the middle of where they all live and this place is so much bigger than the mothers place they normally have it, was asked if they could have it here. We said sure and looks like the biggest most complete turn out in years.

We always have enjoyed their family Christmas much more than our own. Half the family are heads of a Bikie gang so it's always entertaining. They are some of the most loyal, considerate good friends you could have. They have certainly touched me with their kindness and what  they have done for us when we have been in bad times although in all honesty, it would not surprise me in the least to see some cars or van with tinted windows sitting just up the street while they are here.

I can only Imagine the food we will have tomorrow.  Wife asked friend what they wanted to eat and there was almost shock and horror she asked. They told her not to prepare a thing, they will be bringing it all with them.  The spreads they put on are always something to behold and the food is delicious.
Should be a real good day that does extend the feeling of Christmas Nicely.

Unfortunately  my daughter who is in retail is working.  That is another thing that I think should be changed about Christmas, close the damn shops more than one day or only allow supermarkets and food outlets to open.

This Boxing day sale greed I think is rather sad and somewhat disgusting.
Shops are only closed about 4 Days a year here, isn't 360 days enough for people to spend money?
