Well said.

Although I'm getting a new motorbike, I doubt I'l be taking it anywhere because of the weather.

And Lens Pirate, although I do battle depression myself, I really do hope and wish the best of luck to you, I hope you get through it, and really words can't describe how that paragraph can make some people feel.
Dealing some tremendous loss, yet asking for tremendous gain for others and to be selfless in such ways.

I guess some people need that festive kick in the right direction about their lives to start living it.

No matter how young or old you are...Legos are so darn addictive
2nd that, i feel a bit strange being 18, and still being fascinated with Lego, love the stuff!

For Xmas, i got an iPod touch, and free airplane tickets to the Philippines, and paid for accommodation, for a month!

I write this as my Christmas present to all of you. Consider it a gift of hard won wisdom.

Nothing you worry about now matters. Your life should revolve 100 percent around those people that you love. In the end when you take stock of your life, when forced by circumstance to understand what it means to loose Joy, you will know then the value of love.

You will also know shame and resentment of time wasted, of poor behavior, of chances lost to bring joy to your loved ones. Start this instant to fix that.

Step away from your PC. Put down the beer. Make someone smile. Ease someones suffering.

Have sex. Lots of it. The more you have the more you want. It makes you a better person.

Its ok to deny yourself anything to further a goal, except feelings. Never deny how you feel. Every time you do you die a little.

Understand right at this very instance that the life you have been waiting to start, the joy you have put off is happening right now. Get your head into the moment. Feel the air on your skin. Notice everything.

This is it folks, there is no promise that it will ever get better.

Keep looking up mate; this life here is just the beginning.

I got a gift certificate to Fry's electronics. No idea what I'm going to get with it.

Typically, my wife and I would spend a fortune on gifts for our 4 kids. This year the six of us decided to draw names and only bought 1 gift for 1 person. Far less stressful, less hectic and less financially draining. We did our gift exchange last night because it was the only time all 6 of us could get together. We all agreed that we like this way better and will continue it as a new family tradition.

I got the gift of giving. We all pitched in and bought my older brother a truck to replace the one that got totaled in front of his house. The driver fled and he only had liability ins. So we gave him the additional money he needed to replace it. @ Lens Pirate our hearts and prayers go out to you and yours. Fabe
