Only Ten Days Until Christmas

There are only ten days left in Advent. Then the Christmas season begins. Today has been cold so far but at least I've been able to see where I'm going. Surprisingly, I finally got an e mail from Cathleen in California. Here's one of my Christmas pet no_nos: People who refer to Christmas as the holidays, and seem to feel they have the authority to force others to do so whether we like it or not. That's an awfully nauseating practice, whether in person, the media or wherever. Every day, from now on, I shall refer to a Christmas no_no. Last night, I watched Alfred Hitchcock's North By Northwest with Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint & many other familiar faces. Today I started reading Jane Austen's Mansfield Park again.
