Merry Christmas!


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Merry Christmas!

Postby DrJay » Fri Dec 23, 2005 1:53 pm

It's near the end of the last workday before Xmas and since a lot of us slackers post mostly at work and will sgn off for the weekend, someone needs to say "Merry Christmas". Unfortunately, I've the got the duty for the group (our medical practice) at least through Sunday am, probably longer as my relief doc is now sick, but it's only every four years and the hospital is quiet (for the moment).

Anyway...........Merry Christmas! May you all have a blessed weekend with family and friends and I hope Santa is good to you.

Merry Christmas, and all other religious holidays ,for one and all. The most important message about Christmas is:

Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards Men. That crosses all religious lines and Says It All.

HE AINT HEAVY, HE'S MY BROTHER -
The road is long, with many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows where
But I'm strong, strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go, his welfare is my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there
For I know, he would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all, I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart isn't filled with the gladness
Of love, for one another

It's a long, long road, from which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

I Second That Emotion!!!

Do you prefer Bon Scott AC/DC or Brian Johnson AC/DC? Does it work with turnips and squash? Have to try it tomorrow.

Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year y'all.

Bon Scott - Brian peaked on his first album.

Mom is doing the potatoes tomorrow - I don't think AC/DC will be on.

Merry Christmas to all . . .
