Merry Christ­mas and Happy New Year to All....may you all en­joy the won­ders of this spe­cial sea­son.

For the folks in Orkney the Christ­mas Eve ser­vice is at 7:00 pm with read­ings and carols and cof­fee to fol­low at the Cen­tre.

Did you know that Hol­ly­wood has a Christ­mas Pa­rade? I didn’t un­til the other night while I was scan­ning the TV and it was cel­e­brat­ing it’s 85th year. Lots of march­ing bands, fancy floats and en­ter­tain­ment from celebri­ties. It was nice to see Olivia New­ton-John again. Still a beau­ti­ful lady and still has a lovely voice. Also singing was Ju­lia Ara. What a won­der­ful young artist.

I see by the front page of the Cal­gary Sun that Premier Not­ley hasn’t seen much anger ex­pressed over the car­bon tax! I won- der where she lives! Have you ever won­dered how Santa fig­ures out the naughty and nice bit of Christ­mas? I won­der what the Premier will get in her stock­ing? Maybe an orange and some coal? Since she isn’t aware of much anger per­haps we should start phon­ing, tex­ting, email­ing and send­ing let­ters.

I ex­pect most fam­i­lies have sev­eral mem­bers here or they are go­ing to fam­ily else­where for the fes­tiv­i­ties. I am hav­ing most of my fam­ily for Christ­mas week­end and per­haps some friends from Red Deer and Cal­gary as well so there will be about 18 here rang­ing in age from 11 months to me. That’s quite a spread in years!

Do drive care­fully and re­spect other driv­ers. Road rage doesn’t ac­com­plish any good and can be deadly. I don’t think five min­utes of your time is worth an ac­ci­dent and most of the time the guy who passes in a hurry and you are sit­ting next to each other at the red light. I smile and wave.

That’s it for this week and I may not have news again un­til af­ter New Year’s and get caught up with all the events dur­ing the hol­i­day.

Take care and again Sea­son’s Greet­ings to all. I hope Santa is good to you.
