Christmas initial thoughts

Having finished work and wrapped up, I am now examining the tree, and considering Christmas.
 The youf of today seem to be discovering the true meaning of differential.
I wonder if it is possible to paint the decorations on the tree at the rate the children are putting them on the tree soon won’t be visible.

Well I have put some tinsel on and got some sort of approval from the children who are still loading the tree.
I have now put some decorations on, the children watching me taking pictures of the picture of the tree asked the obvious question. “Why don’t you just take a picture of the tree daddy?”
 The question for the adults is, how much of the tree does your mind decorate for you?

Strange business the feast of Christmas, the commercial, religious and traditional, none of which stand up well to much scrutiny. I only mention this as I have to answer questions from enquiring young minds.

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
