I wish all of you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas, a blessed Yuletide and a peaceful, healthy New Year with many memorable moments and lots of laughter (and at least 17 seasons of “Flash Forward” for the dedicated fans of Jack Davenport!)
It wasn’t easy to convince Sparky to pose for a picture, but the prospect of a Sirloin steak did the job:
And because Christmas and Yule are actually more about giving than receiving, why not make a donation to my charity of choice these holidays?
Usual disclaimer: this is the charity of choice of the webmaster.
We live in a society that’s surrounding children either with paranoid overcaution or hostility born out of fear. We’re all quick to lament neglected children, but drag our feet when it comes to prevent or stop neglect and abuse. That goes for the government, but also for each of us personally. Because we are the relatives and neighbours who should notice.
If parents, for whatever reasons, neglect their children, we have to take action – before the next “WHY?” headline in the tabloids. As long as we ignore the problem, neglect will happen. So please – don’t look away. Thank you.
