Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

    Baking.

      Anything in particular? I used to be good at baking (with a limited repertoire), but now I’m years out of practice. Must get back to it.

        The problem I find with baking is that while it might be an interesting thing to do from time to time, you’re left with all this fattening food that you have to eat.

  2. Saturday at the Hamilton Gardens festival where our sons classical Brass Group are playing. Sunday Labour business. Thursday we saw the Great Mets HD performance of Faust ,just wonderfull to all opera lovers this is a must!.

    Being anti-social

    Finish reading my Christmas Present the 1st 5 books of Fire & Ice- A Feast for Crows by George R.r. Martin. Good read but will it every end or will George die before he is able to reach the end?

  6. Bolting bookshelves to the walls with big screws and heavy brackets, and reinstalling the fire alarms after painting the walls.

    Making vodka. Which reminds me, it’s about time for an icy rum.

    Looks like we get one nice warm sunny day (26º) and then back to crappy 16º days, overcast and rainy for the rest of the week.

    I feel jipped. All we got this year was earthquakes, no actual summer.
