    Just got back from there ‘Biohazard’, and it was loverly, good weather, good food, cold beer, warm sea, nice pool, a token display of merchandising associated with the myth of Jesus at the large malls but besides that not a dickey bird of Xmas.

    When you go to the Vatican be sure and give my regards to the tooth fairy.

    Christmas???
    Did I miss something???
    My day was spent in my backyard on a stunning day….
    BBQ….
    Wife…
    A few friends and plenty of grog….
    Not a christmas present or stupid hat to be seen….

    A day off.
    And unlike Biomag, when to many drinks were consumed……. no writing of silly things were to be had.
