I was going to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy New year,
but I was told it was not politicaly correct, especially on a US forum
with International membership. So, here goes:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes
for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, non-addictive,
gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced
within the traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or
secular practices of your choice (with respect for the religious/secular
persuasions and/or traditions of others or their choice not to practice
such traditions at all).

Furthermore, I offer my (non-binding) best wishes for the onset of the
generally accepted calendar year of 2007, but not without due respect
for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to
society have helped make Canada great. (Which is not to imply that
Canada is any greater than any other country). These wishes are offered
without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, choice
of computer platform or sexual preference of the wishee, even if you're
a Liberal.

Happy (if happiness is in your belief system) Holidays (if you recognize

My buddy was very bad this year.... so he could have an unlimited supply of COAL from Santa ...due to rising fuel cost....

Happy Holidays everyone!:D


I have a friend who used to own a fuel business that sold fuel oil and coal.

One year he sent out cards picturing an old steam crane using a clamshell bucket to load a hopper car. The photo was black and white except for the bright red Santa at the controls of the crane.

The caption inside read "Just had bad were you this year?"


A few years ago my mother gave me a sandwich bag filled with white packing foam. There was a tag on the bag that read:

"Due to the high costs of coal, Santa is giving Snowman Poop to all the naughty kids."

Happy Holidays to everyone at
