Merry Christmas Everybody!

For me an early sign of Christmas is the Santa Fun Run. With the emphasis very much on the first two of those three words, I try to take part in one every year. The realistic high-quality costume serves also for Christmas morning until I have to get seriously kitted out in new gifted gear. A friend of mine, in the long long ago when people still wore neckties, received two from his wife one year. Thinking to please, however over-dressed it made him feel, he reappeared for Christmas dinner wearing one of them. “What’s the matter with the other one then?” the wife wanted to know.

Whether you are a first-time or return visitor, I hope you find something to make you want to keep coming back to this site. If you feel minded to give the blue-sky Santa above a little gift before you go, you can use the Contact Me feature to share your own jump start Christmas tradition or crackerjack joke, and please do sign up  to receive our free quarterly newsletter.

All best wishes for a jolly healthy holiday season, David and Joe.
