Just thought I'd drop by and wish everyone a Super Saturnalia!

Spare a thought for those in Australia who won't see snow this year... just like London :-) ... they have their hens for company. "She's a friend. She's more than just a chook." - https://www.facebook.com/7NewsMelbourne/videos/10153826006254301/

Happy holidays everyone! ... with special thoughts to those fighting for our freedoms, working round the clock to give others a special day, whether it be homeless, care work, or wherever and whatever you're doing in order to keep this holiday season running behind the scenes... I'll be raising a glass in your honour. Thank You.
