Not much new here . . .

Was Santa good to you? At my home, he dropped off a few things for my son, but at our request, skipped adding any more junk to the piles that my wife and I already have and are trying to get rid of. Thank you, Santa, for being cool about our surely unusual request.

My friend Vince visited us, as he does every year. He heads the International Society for Individual Liberty, located in California, and appears to miss the snow, or something. Why else would he come to Canada? I enjoy his visits every year. We always have lots to talk about. He tells me that the I.S.I.L. site is getting about 20,000 hits per month from Venezuela. I guess that means that there are a lot of freedom seekers there, individuals who don't share the Hollywood airheads' notion that Venezuela under Hugo Chavez is Paradise on Earth. I like the Flash animation on the I.S.I.L. site, go here: Philosophy of Liberty, select a language, and enjoy.

I am taking advantage of a little more free time than usual to visit bloggers on my blogroll. Even if I don't always leave comments, I do visit, and read and enjoy your posts.

I hope you are all having a great time playing with your new toys, wearing your new clothes, eating and drinking heartily and generally enjoying yourselves. Just stay safe.


  1. Ditto.

    I am blogging in order to avoid getting rid of the piles of junk that must surely rival you and your wifes!

  2. Santa was very practical this year at our place. No slippers, no nothing! It was a great relief for both of us here with no place to store anything.

  3. Gostei muito desse post e seu blog é muito interessante, vou passar por aqui sempre =) Depois dá uma passada lá no meu site, que é sobre o CresceNet, espero que goste. O endereço dele é . Um abraço.

  4. Luckyzmom: procrastinating, eh? I'll be over later to see what you have been writing to avoid tidying up!

    Lin: Minimalism has its advantages. Keep warm!

    Crescenet: Even the Portuguese translation of your comment sounds like you're trying to sell me something I can't use.

  5. Your Christmas with family and friends sounds more than lovely.

    Happy New Year, Sieg!

  6. Ahhh ... the SPAMMERS hit Atavist. A lot of my blog friends are receiving SPAM comments lately. I like my option to approve any comments prior for that reason. You will likely also get the "I'm on my way to the airport but thought I would send the link to that money-making opportunity I told you about previously." Gag me. I am presuming that adding the squiggly word verification test might help if you don't want to go for full pre-publish vetting. It plays Hell with us dyslectics but I am willing to try several times if it saves us all from dealing with SPAM.
