Nice job, Harry. Do you live near the coast? You eat lots of shellfish. I am land locked so it has to come a long way, which means I don't get it often as I would like...

Now we are adding GG and Jabbur to the list of sickies.

I hope you guys feel better soon.

Stirling and I are feeling a bit better. We had Habitant brand French Canadian pea soup for supper. That was delicious. We didn't manage to finish the can, so someone gets more later.

I was told that it's when you box up the gifts.

December 26th is also known as St. Stephen's Day. As today is my birthday, that's why I was named Steve.

But I'll have you know, I'm no saint.

No dinner here yet. I am sitting on a plane as we speak. Will probably grab a bite on the way home from the airport.

You can add my name to that list. I thought that sleep would help me feel better. All day I have been feeling lousy. I kept falling asleep. I did manage to stay awake when Spike came by. He put together my embroidery stand. And he has made me wireless. When he has the energy, he is going to make me totally wireless. He will run the wires from my tower to my TV screen and I can sit on my bed and use my TV screen as my monitor. I don't know if I want to have a 42" monitor.

.....and what about shellfish?!!i eat lots of seafood,shellfish & fish etc 'cos i love it & find it dead easy to cook,rock.
reality is that britain is a tiny island.doubt if anyone is more than 70 or 80 miles from a coast & i have got 8 tesco supermarkets,6 asda's,4 morrisons(they are always voted supermarket fishmonger of the year) & 2 costco's all within a 15 mile radius,which helps mate!!
it's blowing a gale today,so i plan to drive up to north wales,to llandudno(pronounced thlanduddknow)for the best fish & chips in the world imo & to "wave dodge" on the prom.that should blow the chrimbo cobwebs away....!!it will only take me about an hour to drive there,mate!took these pics a couple of new years days ago.i always go there on my birthday for fish & chips.traditional outing for me!!

Where are those pix from Harry? Are you showing us pix of Wales with things that look like palm trees?

I live closer to the ocean than Roch does. For me it's about a 6 hour drive (if I don't stop along the way) to get far enough along the Saint Lawrence river to where the water is salty (about even with Rimouski).

that is llandudno,north wales and,yes,those are palm trees tax!!.same sort of hardy palms that you see a lot of down in cornwall etc.llandudno is in a very sheltered bay,protected by the great orme's head(a massive limestone/granite outcrop) at one end,the little orme at the other & the snowdonia range of mountains behind.perfect for palms!!.takes me about an hour & 20 mins to drive there from manchester.about 30 mins if i'm at the house in north wales.the fylde coast is only 30-40 mins drive from where i am,in manchester.
