Season’s Greetings… December 24, 2007

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.


It’s almost Christmas Day. Santa Claus knows whose been naughty and who has been nice. Snow is falling… Children singing…

Ach no… it’s none of those. It’ll be turkey and more turkey and beer and a bit of wine and indigestion and insomnia and so on and so forth. Second hand television scheduling, dodgy DVDs, noisy toys for kids. It’s an odd way to have fun.

Still, putting that to one side let’s consider the proposition that the one great aspect of Christmas is that it provides a psychological full stop to twelve months. Time to recuperate, reflect and recover. Which most tend to do by mildly poisoning themselves with an excess of food and alcohol with not enough exercise. Yeah, bring it on…

If I can get it together I’ll post a Left Archive piece later in the week, but I’m not promising anything. Normal service will be resumed by Thursday or Friday – probably!

A small word of thanks to my comrades on the blog mbari (still MIA), joemomma, franklittle and smiffy, and to the growing number of you who have contributed posts, discussions and thoughts, and to anyone else who is just passing through and been good enough to pass the time here.

I’d also like to thank a heap of blogs and sites out there – you know who you are – who have provided a real education. It’s great. There’s a lot to know… but it’s important to know how to use that knowledge usefully.

Last year I asked “who knows what 2007 will bring – rocket shoes and holidays to Jupiter perhaps. If not, mines a Beamish”. I’m disappointed by the lack of arrival of rocket shoes, so it’s still a Beamish.

Le Gach Dea-Ghuí Don Nollaig agus don Athbhliain

Nollaig Shona Daoibh.

How are Beamish doing, economically? I’m sure I read somewhere that Guinness were in something of a crisis.

Thanks for a great year of reading, discussion and debate. Happy Christmas to all contributors. I have really enjoyed it and it has been become an almost daily port of call for me.
