Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, and we'll see you just before the New Year. Drive safely, don't stress out too much and enjoy the period. If you get to spend it with children, even if they're not your own, so much the better. Tomorrow, Christmas Day, I'm heading up to the central coast, basically across to the central coast, to the North of Sydney. A nice ferry ride first, then a friend of 50 years will pick me up and I'll spend Christmas with him and his family. 4 generations, and lots of visitors, so it'll be a good time. I'm staying overnight which means that I can have a drink or too and not worry about getting home. The forecast earlier in the week, was that it might be a wet Christmas Day, but if today's anything to judge, unless there's a late storm, it should be warm and sunny tommoow. Merry Christmas, Peace, Health and Fellowship to you all.
