Far too many people use the words of the religions of the world for their own twisted purposes.  That endeavour is however helped by the fact that, from what I see, religious texts can be used to support almost any argument put forward.  Just as one example, and only because it's from a book that I'm familiar with, on one hand we are told "Turn the other cheek", yet in the same book there is "An eye for an eye".

The pacifist would use the former to support their view, whilst the fighter would use the latter.  Which one is wrong in beliefing that they are following the teachings of the book?

As far as I'm concerned anybody can believe whatever they want to believe as long as they don't try to enforce their beliefs on me either by word or force.

And I thought I was the master of 'Bah Humbug'.

We've just had one of the best Christmasses for a long time, despite some real downs during the year with family deaths etc.  We went to my wife's sister for Christmas Day, returning home in the evening to collapse after eating far too much.  Boxing Day her sister and husband, niece and husband plus nephew and new girlfriend came to us.  Our first time of really meeting the new girlfriend who is lovely although understandably a little nervous to start with.  Silly games soon broke the ice, but I've decided I should consider selling all our conservatory furniture because most people sat on the floor.  Benefit of underfloor heating I guess.

Yes, Christmas is horribly over commercialised, but nobody is forced to spend.

KT, could you please supply the link to that quote, I have my son here who has gun licenses and is properly trained in firing and he hadn’t heard about the laws on having a .22 Air Rifle.

As I've said before , a worthwhile investment would be a good quality .22 air-rifle !  Cannot stand grey-squirrels

 Grey squirrels are classed as vermin, but are still protected by animal cruelty legislation.  Anybody considering following the advise above might want to read this.

"An air rifle can also be used as long as the user is properly qualified. Free shooting of squirrels is also generally accepted as long as the person has a licence and can guarantee a clean kill. However the Royal Society for the Protection of Animals argue that most people will be incapable of killing a squirrel without causing “unnecessary suffering” and will therefore be in breach of the law.

Merry Christmas to all

It's a really nice thing to do, but if news like that got out around here they'd have hundreds of people who had never been there before, circling the place for the freebies.

Loose connection or a solder joint failed would seem to be the most likely cause if it works when laid on its side.

If only trees could speak.

If trees could speak we would have heard a lot of screaming from conifers in the past couple of weeks.
