Slade, Etta's great, but how can anything top Porky?

On another front, here's Canada's own Rik Emmett with a serious contender for finest musical composition in human history:

d.t.,

I've seen Status Quo so many times that I've literally lost count. Their triple guitars really rock. In the early 70s, Status Quo and Savoy Brown seemed to play Vancouver every six months. One of Savoy Brown's albums was HELLBOUND TRAIN. If you've been drinking Death By Booze cocktails, I hope that's not your face in the window of this Underground train:

See the demons in the smoke, and the skull on the tracks. That's what absinthe will do! Yikes!!

WOW, so many things you can see in the cover......
Of course I would like to point out that Death by Booze is a 'one for the road' and not my drink of choice, Jack Daniels and coke, no ice, or lemon, please. What nibbles do you have......

As for tradition, when I get the kids for christmas, the special Santa key comes out, as we have no chimney, mince pie with hoof print in, and champagne in the morning.
Adults open presents the night before..
Kids are 7 and 9 so getting to that age.... The " so and so at school says santa doesn't exist"
And we have an ancient handed down through family fairy, sits on top of the tree with light up her bum. Has had a new dress, head, arms, wings but still the same fairy.... tradition.

Mahalia, Slade? Note how she's draped in strings and arpeggios on O Holy Night. Never underestimate the profound appeal of arpeggios. Here's another favorite:

Here were the responses to Mr. Bassman:

"Animal is crazy."
"He's so funny."

And someone noticed a similar beat to this family staple:

The Muppets and Sesame Street have always featured high-quality musicianship and compositions. Right now the girls are clicking on YouTube links in the basement playroom and dancing to them.

And that, Mbwun, is one family tradition at Christmastime. Turn on the music, sing along, and d A n C e! Then there's the champagne breakfast tradition, with piles of scrambled eggs, link sausage, and blueberry muffins. Yum!

Cheers! MM

MM.

Our traditional family breakfast on Christmas morning always used to consist of waffles with a selection of things to put on them including warm stewed blueberries, syrup, honey, jam, whipped cream, and ice-cream. Mom would also make Eggs Benedict. I'm not a big fan of Eggs Benedict, so I'd stick to the waffles.

As I got older, the waffle breakfast started to not really agree with me anymore - I'd feel kind of icky for the rest of the day. These days we just stick to our daily breakfast - oatmeal porridge, with ground flax and sunflower seeds cooked into it, and some fresh fruit.

No champagne here, we don't drink alcohol in this house. And I'm allergic to alcohol, so no big deal.

Here's one you can dance to:

As I sit here freezing my butt off, this scene from another one of those must-view Christmas movies comes to mind:

I seem to be having problems with my ADSL connection lately. Last night it went out altogether. I've managed to get it working today, but for how long it lasts is another question. I'm wondering if my ADSL modem might be giving up the ghost.

So, if it does go out on me completely, and I don't get back online for a while, I'd just like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and maybe a Happy New Year too.

... Just in case.

Hopefully, I'll be able to stick around for a while, but I guess there's no guarantees.

Well, I'm still online. I'm beginning to think that there's a problem with the telephone lines coming in to the house, since the business with my internet connection kicking in and out seemed to have started at about the same time as all this horrid, freezing weather we've been having.

Lots more snow added to the mix yesterday, and overnight. And more on the way later on this week. We haven't had a White Christmas here for a long time. I can't even remember the Fraser River freezing up the way it has this year ... ever.

The snow has made things so quiet around here it brings in mind what I think is probably the most beautiful Christmas Carol ever written. And here's two versions of it, done by two different women with incredibly beautiful voices.

And for steely, they both have something to do with the Irish:
