A Song of The Season

Your Christmas Song Is

Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

And so this is xmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong

You would gladly give up all of your material Christmas gifts...
If it meant peace for a few more people

I love this song. And this meme gave me some good ideas for Christmas songs to download from iTunes.

Snagged from ahembree.

Bye Bye Bye!

Was it El Niño? Was it greater levels of dust and dry air coming from Western Africa? Was it the endless prayers from Gulf Coast residents? Was it the anti-hurricane hoodoo conjured up by yellowdoggrl and me?

Whatever the reason, I am thankful the 2006 hurricane season was a quiet one. And I am glad that it's over!
