    Maybe this would be the year to collect for a charity of Bear's Katie's choice? I'd kick in on that.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    okay kiddies -

    I sent out the Secret Santa assignments - remember keep it between 10 to 20 bucks and get it there ASAP but I won't start harassing you until the 26th of December with the finality on Epiphany!

    Have fun with it - I enjoyed reading your responses to the questions! The winning response gets a surprise present from me so look for it...

    PM me with questions

    and let me know immediately if your inbox is empty - I really did pull names out of a hat to keep it random!

    If there's still a Female victim in the U.S., she'll get mine in plenty of time... And no matter how choosey she is, she'll love it.

    I have a PM in to Katie. I am hoping she has some ideas and people will kick in.

    Thanks for inquiring. I was just going to ask how we're going to handle the Bear donations.

    The victim's gifts are purchased and will be given to the man in brown on Monday.

    That or Swanton, I guess. Just have Bear's real name in there somewhere so it gets back to Katie.

    What's the over/under number of the gifters that screwed this year? My line: 2-1/2. Hope I'm wrong. Should start a poll. But I'm not a player. It'll be intersting to watch the train wreak

    I have the concept, I just need to make some local trips to procure the materials. My unsuspecting victim will also be getting a SLC postcard. You would have had Tampa if I got your name sooner. Not a give away, but the shipment will be headed west, but that's not too hard from Wilmington.

    Think positively, my dearie...

    I actually played this year, have my box of local things almost done - have to do 2 local stuff as I live in 2 spots

    If you don't know what to get someone, a box of inexoensive assortment of local/regional things always works - shop local and all that...

    I get the biggest kick out of stalking my SS and figuring out funny gifts. This is the first year that I've gotten someone that has very similar tastes to me, so this should be a ton of fun!

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."
