Merry Christmas
« on: December 24, 2012, 09:22:14 AM »
To all my dear LTS friends,

I wish you the happiest of holidays, and a very happy and healthy 2013 !  Those who know me may remember that I don't care for the odd-numbered years; seems that everything BAD that has happened to me over the years happened mainly in odd-numbered years.   I hope this one will be different!    Lucky 13, right?

Warm Holiday Hugs to all,

Wishing you a great holiday season.  I totally understand your fear of certain dates.  July is dreadful for me, almost all my negative shit happens then.

May you be especially blessed this coming year.

Judging someone does not define them, it defines you. 

True peace is not merely the absence of war, it is the presence of justice.

Merry Christmas to all!  Alan, I like the "lucky 13" philosophy.  I'll stick with that.

To Alan and the rest of the awesome LTSers:  hope everyone had a fantastic Xmas and here's to many more new years to come in which we will be able to reflect upon all of the time we've been able to persevere with all that we've experienced over the years.
