Also wishing everyone Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
I didn´t kill myself when things went wrong
I didn´t turn to drugs or teaching
I tried to sleep, but when I couldn´t sleep
I learned to write.
I learned to write what might be read
on nights like this by one like me.

last Christmas we hadn't heard 'Old Ideas', we didn't know for sure that Leonard was going to tour again, and few of us had heard of a violinist called Alex.
This Christmas we have all those new songs in our hearts and many of us have seen that at 78 Leonard is as a performer better than ever and performing with his best band ever !
Let's have a great Christmas and start the new year with a smile :D

This is my first Christmas here at LCF, and I want to thank everyone for being so kind and taking good care of a "child" like me. (Technically, I'm not a child, of course, but I'm young enough to be a (grand)daughter to many of the members here. I really appreciate everyone being so kind and respectful to me, despite the huge age difference in some cases. Not that I had expected people to treat me badly because of it, but... I don't know, I appreciate it, in any case, hehe.)

Truth being told, I'm not too fond of Christmas (for my own reasons), but I will not dwell with that, and regardless of my own convictions and feelings, I want to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas, and I'm hoping the coming year will be kind to us all.

happy doomsday, everybody!

see you all on the next higher level of consciousness.
or in hell.
or in a tidy mexican divorce.
or whatever place the maya calendar provides.

:razz:

these are the final days,
this is the darkness,
this is the flood!

Don't let the Maya Calendar waste your Christmas Party : the end of the world is postboned to 2016. (Fear Business must go on).

Have fun :D

Peace on Earth, good will to men! 8)

The ice work looks like a shining Christmas tree ornement. Thanks Eija - and Jarkko.

Happy New Year everybody!

Another wonderful sculpture, Eija!

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year to all the members of this wonderful community (and to Leonard too!). I look forward to seeing many of you in 2013!

P.S. I'm spending Christmas on the Mayan Riviera! :shock:

Well, you write all this down, but you don't have the proof ...
