Happy Leap Second

Once again, for the 23rd time since 1972, scientists plan to add a "leap second" to the world's clocks at the close of the year.

I don't understand: When I bought my atomic watch at Wal-Mart a couple of years ago it boasted an accuracy of one second in 100 million years.

I guess when we get older time goes by faster.

I sincerely hope you all are busy loving life and The Lord as much as I do, and that you are headed for a Blessed New Year!

Merry Whatever

I like this. Wish I'd written it. -- D.H.

For My Liberal Democrat Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2006, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures who contribute.

For My Republican Friends:

Here's wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
