Season's Greetings (hope you are staying warm)
Well, tomorrow is Christmas. It's a good thing I live in California-- my furnace has gone out twice now. I was not too happy to come home to a cold house (during cold snaps), and once again I will have to wait for the final repair. The furnace man came tonite, but has to order the thermostat, so its a good thing I knit--- I've been using 3 blankets, a comforter, and a knit ski hat! (its been getting down to 30 at night) I had to take the parrots to board at the vet (too cold for them in the house)
I am starting to re-watch Full Metal Alchemist, and observe it is really a story for the new millenium so to speak. The more I see the news (try to avoid it - use www>reuters.com, it is a lot more balanced, and one of the major news sources world wide, and thankfully without a particular axe to grind!) the more that Full Metal seems to be relavant, where greed, misunderstandings, and the other 7 deadly sins are the prominent story line rather than a simple good vs evil (morality play) like earlier series. Ah, but I still enjoy them all, to float away to a slightly different dimension.
Wishing all my friends good holidays, and the hope that next year is better , saner, gentler for all!
