Happy Christmas, Hannukah, Yuletide, or other solstice festival of your choice to you all!


Merry whatever to you Ken.

Tony, a spaceport at Lossiemouth is one way I'd be very happy to see The Execution Channel overtaken by events.

I can't help remembering the line in Yes, Minister (or was it Yes, Prime Minister?), about Lossiemouth being a kind of dog food.

For what it's worth, my brother was once stationed at RAF Lossiemouth. It was a dangerous posting - he ended up marrying his then CO's daughter. Anyway, it must have the right sort of infrastructure for a spaceport.

Merry Yule from Norway. We still call it that: Jul. Doesn't stop Christians from harping on about "the true meaning of ..." a tradition that predates them.

But I guess we'll have that bickering going way past when we have Mars colonies.

I suggest a new tradition to supplant it all (and may all of fandom adopt it): Going metric and celebrating every 10^8 sconds, starting NOW (11:28:36, 29. December 2008 old time reckoning)

You almost got it right Ken, at the very end. The proper greeting is HAPPY WINTER SOLSTICE.
