Season's greetings and festive wishes
« on: December 25, 2005, 02:11:31 pm »
Season's greetings to all Brookmans Park Newsletter users at home and overseas. Have a fun-filled festive wherever you are. (And for those in Australia and New Zealand, it's sunny here too and we are in shirt sleeves.

Yep, glad the car is bust and we can't drive to Liverpool.

Special season's greetings to those local residents who moved away in recent years but still keep in touch through the forum.

Jet, Anna, MC, Max, NZer, Mary Morgan ...any more?

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from New Zealand.  Actually we were in BP on and off for nearly 3 weeks until the 21st Dec and had some lovely sunny weather, as well as some good frosts.  I believe there is snow around now.
We really enjoyed the Christmas tree on the green - last year we had to make do with seeing it on the web.
We were over for a wedding (which had sunny weather), and were able to catch up with parents (BP) and son (Oxford).
New Year will be spent at the beach.
All the best to you all :) :)

On the front page of the Forum there is a Crib Service being advertised for 24th, unfortunately it doesn't say where.

Does anyone know where it is being held?

There's a couple. There is one at North Mymms Church (off the road between Welham Green and Colney Heath), which I think is the one advertised there:

There is also one at Christ Church Little Heath (near Little Heath School), at the same time.

Keep :-)

In the theme of non bias and political correctness:
‘Merry Christmas’ (hereafter ‘The Greeting’) . . . this announcement is not intended to offend, alienate, foster hate, or be a precursor for any egregious acts (legal or illegal), thoughts, words, or deeds. ‘The Greeting’ is made only in the context in which it may be legally received, if in fact, it is received at all. It is not intended to be nor should it be, in any way, connected to any other type of greeting, real or imagined, past, present or future. No references to any persons, things, or substances, animate or inanimate, real, fictional, or otherwise, should be assumed by the reader or receiver of the greeting (hereafter, ‘the greetee’). The greeting is not being made to (nor will tenders be accepted from or on behalf of) nonbelievers in ‘The Greeting’ in any jurisdiction in which making and/or accepting the greeting would violate that jurisdiction’s laws or feelings (also refer to local statutes and ordinances related to ‘The Greeting’). In any jurisdiction in
which perceived ‘greeting’ is not welcomed nor agreed upon by all ‘greetees,’ then the ‘greetor’ of ‘The Greeting’ will be held harmless in this life and the next, including all issuing posterity both now and forever. ‘The Greeting’ may be made by a licensed ‘greetor’ and any liability assumed or created by the ‘greetee’ shall be the sole responsibility of said ‘greetor.’ If you have been aggrieved, offended, waylaid, parlayed, filleted, or delayed in any way, either real, imagined, or perceived by said ‘Greeting’ and/or by ‘greetor’ as the result of receiving said ‘greeting’ you can call toll free 1-800-CHRISTMAS to speak with legal counsel.”  :icon_jokercolor:

And more seasonal greetings from Abu Dhabi, or at least, an oil rig stuck out in the Persian Gulf, the best part of an hour's helicopter ride away.

I have received greetings from some American friends saying "Happy Holidays". Not wishing to carp, but I feel this term should be outlawed, as being insensitives and disrespectful towards those of us who are not on holiday! I propose replacing it with "Happy Whatever"!

Didn't even get into town for a few pints with Mary, this time around :¬(.

I think "Happy Whatever" is insensitive to grumpy gits like me and should be reduced further to "Whatever".

Ferdie -  Many thanks for sparing your time on Christmas Day to show what a crazy world we live in.  What you wrote could have been written by goodness knows how many organisations today, the country has sunk that low.

For our Christmas, staying near Sherwood Forest, the dull weather did not encourage outdoor activity.  What an excuse to eat, drink, sleep and be merry (in no particular order). Weighed myself this morning and not too many pounds added, despite the excesses.  That cheered me up.  Remind me not to check the bank balance  :'(
