Santa Moore or Santa Less?

Wisdom to live by;
Whatever you do, never use a Phillips screwdriver to unscrew your belly button.
    If you do, your ass will fall off.

words coined in yourbirthyear
Did you know 'mother-in-law' is an anagram of 'woman hitler'?
Different Xmas trees

Funny 12 days tumbr  and more, from a cartoonist

Dust in your eyes alert    Brenda Schmitz’s Christmas Wish

A lump of gold to Brenda Schitz; and a lump of coal to my, ( I am embarrased to admit it ) My MLA James Moore or is it James Less?

As usual cartoonist Adrian Raeside hits the nail on the head.

A few letters to the editor of the local paper,  MP Moore should meet his neighbours

 James Moore sorry for remarks about hungry children
Industry minister apologizes for saying federal role doesn't include feeding poor children

Original interview:   Federal minister says child poverty not Ottawa’s problem
      James Moore says child poverty falls under provincial jurisdiction.

 Enough of the depressing utterances from a bureaucrat; it is supposed to be a happy time of year

A few shortYoutube  cartoon videos
     Christmas Presence, Simon's Cat  ( Part 1 ) and ( Part 2 ), also Santa Claws

 Humorous Photos of Santa Claus Invading Famous Works of Art

Are You on Santa's naughty list?  ( I certainly hope so )

Terry Gilliam - The Christmas Card  ( Every postpersons worst nightmare )

Look at this linkdump of Xmas themed links, WARNING  over a hundred links inside the posting, many hours will be wasted enjoyed going through this growing list.

Have a happy whatever we are supposed to call this holiday in a politically correct way

Some of the things that keep me out of trouble

I am involved in numerous environmental groups throughout the Tri-Cities area, I manage the Hoy Scott Watershed Societies,(HSWS) salmon hatchery, and keep the volunteers up to date with a Blog
I am also involved with the Maple Creek Streamkeepers,(MCS).

I have an interest in the history of British Columbia, especially the preservation of the Riverview Hospital site.
Which includes the rebuilding of Finnies Garden with a dedicated group of volunteers.
I love the history and ecology of Minnekhada Park, and have done extensive research on its previous owners.
The elusive, though extensive history of the Pitt River which includes Pitt Lake and the Upper Pitt River is slowly being gathered together, for a future book. Much of this area now includes the Pinecone-Burke Provincial Park, which another group that I am involved in the Burke Mountain Naturalists,( BMN ) worked hard to create for future generations to enjoy.
I like to hike around the area taking pictures, here is a small portion of them in Panoramio and also Flickr

Patricia Gaspar, is a dear, artist friend who has a Blog with a small portion of her work.
. Some of the history of the Coquitlam area, I share in my Coquitlamites Blog.

And I really like the music of Eva Marie Cassidy
