Don Jose,
You wrote: "now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country"
I remember that sentence was used in my high school typing class; how many times could it be written in one minute.
Of course that was long before electric typewriters.
Don..

Well said, Crow.

sometimes I think that you may be more, a poet, than a pirate or profiteer.

Merry christmas amigo!

Although its really hard trying to feel like Christmas in my part of world its hot with 95% humidity It is steaming like being trapped in a sauna. Every bit of clothing is wet and sticky and chaffing every time ya move. All Old crow wants to do is sleep. Its very taxing mentally as well as physically. Here they call it the suicide season. Got another month of this weather at least.

Yet it is christmas regardless and that in itself require special efforts. I am a doer of many things amigo but master of none. This year I have been playing Santa this week. Every year I buy hundreds of lottery tickets and give them out to random people in the spirit of giving. Its not the present but the act of giving that lifts peoples spirits. It gives hope.

But many people are doing it for example.In several children toys stores a mysterious donor has paid off all toys in lay by for thousands of people. So even in the toughest of times there are people doing very good things. And this is why christmas should always be celebrated in the spirit of giving. Just as Jesus gave his life for us. We give in thanks of sharing the giving.

Cheers Crow

That is a true statement Crow and it made me think.., That is one thing our capitalist generation needs to hear as Christmas in our generation has become a multi billion dollar business and money making time for many. But it is supposed to be all about giving as God gave his son Jesus Christ to the world and Christ gave his life to the world...hence it is nice to hear stories about people caring and giving to others at this time...Many things in our generation have changed there original intent like this. For instance one can think of the concept of the 'Hospital' . In my humble opinion the concept of the hospital as we know it mostly started as a charity and act of kindness by medieval churches and Christian religious orders intended to freely care and treat travelling weary pilgrims that were on tiresome pilgrimage treks to sites across Europe and Israel. But later it evolved and now in our generation it has become a multi billion money making business. But in the middle of this there are still stories now and then of doctors volunteering to remote places risking their lives to treat people. The Covid crisis has also shown the sacrifice of many such generous souls. Thanks for reminding us about sharing and giving .

TT, it's cool, but your mindset is a product of your culture

charity is not a christian monopoly
more likely a "human" characteristic

Don José - a hella good year

indeed curious how appreciation has morphed into misappropriation
clearly all will never be pleased

you need some kind of award Crow, a perfect phrase for our times

A Merry politically incorrect Christmas
