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.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
