Christmas Eve is not yet here in North America, and when it arrives I'm going to be very busy. We have family and friends coming for dinner, so I won't have much chance to blog.

My old friend Merlin and I take this opportunity to wish you a very happy holiday and a new year full of surprises that make you laugh.
