Merry Christmas everyone.

Well on behalf of us Kiwi's, seeing as we are the first to see the light each day, I wish all a very Merry Christmas. And also, seeing as I am off on a cruise for the next 8 days, I also wish everbody a very Happy New Year.
Hey Pete, How does the day thing work down your way. What time do you work to?? Wish you all the best down there mate. Is Sue away with Family. Hope she isn't on her own. Let me know if she is, we could try and catch up with her. It's just me and Dawn.


For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.

You to, all of yuse.

Merry Christmas everyone.

I have been outside with the pressure washer, getting the crud off the bottom and lose paint off the decks. This is on my new Tanzer 22 that I bought this week. It is just above freezing so I was able to run water outside.
Next week, weather permitting, I will sand the keel and bottom.
Free grog and munchies at the Yacht club this afternoon, so I am leaving soon.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all. We had a great Christmas Eve celebration dinner last night, with 13 out of a possible 14 family members, so all is good cheer this morning.

Merry Christmas from 77degrees 80' south, Another white Christmas from this castaway.
McMurdo station is on the same time as NZ so we're winding down the day now. I'm working nightshift so am back at the helm until 0630 tomorrow. No rest for the wicked but we had a sumptuous American style dinner at midnight last night.
One of these days I'll have Christmas at home, been away for 14 of the last 20 but have spent the day in some pretty great places.

I feel a slight connection to you Aussies, Kiwis and Antarcticans!! so I'll throw in my best Christmas wishes to you as your day comes to an end.

The slight connection is that I just got a call from my daughter who is teaching English in Suwon, South Korea. She was wishing me Merry Christmas before she goes to bed.

Our day is just starting here in Kentucky where it's unseasonably warm. Should be sunny and clear and near 60 degrees today. But we'd still rather be on a sailboat in the Caribbean!!

Merry Christmas to all!!!!!!!!!!

Ho-Ho-Ho, says Santa when he comes....

So far, so no good.

Don't think there is no Santa, no Jesus, and no God.

Wish I was wrong, but the evidence and the evolution speaks for itself:

As a wise man said recently:

If somebody belives in God, Jesus and in Angels, etc, they are idiots, or at least un-educated.

On the other hand, lets celebrate fantasy Christmas and eat good and drink good, because there is no tomorrow...
