Have A Cool Yule!

Have a cool Yule, a sparkling solstice (a few days ago), a happy Hannukah! Whether you're with family around the tree, having a Christmas picnic with friends or grating potatoes for tonight's latkes, have a great time.

I'm just finishing off Michael Pryor's new steampunk novel which will be reviewed here soon, and will take that and something I haven't read to the beach with me as soon as I finish rustling up my picnic lunch. And don't forget to give a goat, a mosquito net, a set of school supplies, a kitchen garden to someone somewhere else in the world. I have, and would love to do more. That link was for Oxfam. There's also TEAR Australia and many others to choose from and you don't have to wait till December to do it. Go on - do it after Christmas lunch. Why not have everyone chip in for something big, like a cow, a donkey,  a year's education?

One nice thing about having joined Twitter is that I'm now following Father Bob Maguire. The man is amazing! His tweet this morning said he was going over, after Mass, to help Les Twentyman serve brunch. Coz it isn't only the developing countries where people get a raw deal.

Thanks! I had a good day, despite the storm - or maybe because of it. There's something cosy about sitting inside listening to the rain pour down, only it began while I was on the beach, having had a swim and finished my picnic lunch. So I went to Macca's, which was open, bought a cup of chai and read for a while. THAT was cosy!
