We call them faucets. I was leaving the bar the other night and someone stepped on my hand. I was almost home when I made a wrong turn and hit my head on the curb.

If you are into old British films don't be fooled by the plummy accents. We don't speak like that, we never have done except in films. Apart from the language differences (the UK consists of 4 countries - England, Wales, Scotland & Ireland) there are also different dialects within each country.

We had tea at The Ritz at the start of the month and the carol singers were great there too.

There was a junior school choir singing carols at the hospice this afternoon. Such a lovely atmosphere and enjoyed by both patients and children. This is the sort of thing that makes me smile at Christmas.

I met the guy who wrote the "IT Crowd" (Graham Linehan) at a fundraiser for the Twitter trial appeal. Very funny man.

Yeah, that I knew. I love Sean Connery's accent. I am in hopes "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" has the accents correct. Not emphasized, but just there.
I would LOVE to get british TV here. There was one my sister bought on DVD with a guy in it whose real name is Chris O'Dowd and it is about a bunch of IT people who have a basement office. Cracked me up.
Anyway, the English still rule, IMHO, on language. The humor is pleasantly sans puritans. ;)

Loved the Best exotic Marigold Hotel and I think the accents in it are pretty much correct. As Roland say's there are numerous dialects and being from the south of England my accent will be very different to Rolands who is from the north.

Seem to be an abundance of Carol singers this year. Was in town last week and there was a group singing there plus several people with signs offering "free hugs". I was loaded with shopping bags and got grabbed by some chap giving me a free hug whether I wanted it or not. All a bit bizarre.

The landlady's sister just came by and wholeheartedly agrees, pointing out that people can lose track of who or what they're worshipping. I know it's true because I have seen people kissing ceramic baby Jesuses who probably wouldn't be kissing ceramic baby ducks.

Kissing any inanimate object is just plain weird.

And yet, we don't have any connection, memory nor history of being taught anything by the pagans. Isn't that strange that people are SO obsessed over bashing Christians because their beliefs are pagan and yet don't get at all the history and development of Christianity have shut those pagan traditions out?
I sure don't recall the pagans historically as worshiping a deity name Christ. Do you?
If you do an unbiased study of the origins of Christmas and see how we are still doing carbon copies of what pagans did you would see what im talking about.

I agree Pagans dont celebrate Christ, but the bible clearly states, Do Not worship your God in the same exact ways that people worship there God, it is an Abomination to him.

Me personally, i recognize the celebration of his birth, but i dont refer to Xmas as Jesus birthday, but acknowledge his birthday was in September during the feast of tabernacles. I dont do any of the pointless shop til you drop, Santa Claus, Christmas trees, etc as they have nothing to do with Jesus at all.

It can still be a good time to tell others and lead them to Christ since many people only go to church 2 times a year.

What an arrogant load of crap. Get over your Christmas tree paranoia. God will not smite you if you decorate a tree.

There comes a peace when you know God loves you and is not lurking, waiting for you commit an offense. Do you know what scripture I am referring to?

Matthew 11:28-30

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

My issue is not with Christmas itself, but the way it is celebrated now. Christianity has let the world completely take this holiday from them even though it wasnt theirs to begin with. Make it a religious holiday again and stop worrying about offending everyone with something simple as merry Christmas and let the holiday be about celebrating the birth of Christ rather that pointless shop til you drop and gift giving and decorations.
