Christmas Countdown 2013 - 11 December

My favorite Christmas Music 6th of 10

Coming in at number 6 is The Power Of Love by the awesome Frankie Goes To Hollywood

ZTT certainly knew how to market themselves... but how do you put sex and come and two tribes biting each other's ears into a Christmas Song? Easy, you get Frankie Goes to Hollywood to star in a controversial video (believe me in the 80s this was controversial!) with blasphemy all over the place. A stunning song about a hooded claw... very Christmassy.

Today's featured Anthology Author is

Abigail Winters with her story Love Delayed.

Journalist Daniel Jackson is headed home to Chicago to celebrate a family Christmas. A snowstorm in Denver leaves him stranded at the airport where he bumps into Riley Cooper, actor, ex-best friend, and teenage crush. Will old feelings be reawakened when Riley offers Daniel a place to stay?

Abigail's Special Christmas Memory

The best thing about Christmas is being with family. I love that I get to spend time with my husband, our children, my parents, my sister and my brother-in-law, together.

We have little traditions that we follow every year, and as my children get older, and our family extends, we make new ones.

It's wonderful.

Mr RJ's Crap Joke Section

Good Evening folks. I thought this evening, I would share some facts with you about the Christmas Cracker industry in the UK.

They were invented in the 1860's by London Baker Tom Smith.  The industry is worth more than £120 Millon a year (roughly $190 million) which when you consider it only happens once a year on our small Island is pretty damn impressive.   They original contained sugared almonds and sappy love poems but this changed over time to include surprise gifts, a paper hat (I'll try and catch RJ wearing one :) ) and of course the joke.

And on that note, here is some more :-

Did you hear what happened to Santa when he got stuck in a chimney?
He got Claus-trophobia!!

What do you call a woman who stands between two goal posts?

What’s round and bad tempered? 
A vicious circle

Where does a general keep his armies?
Up his sleevies.

In the words of Porky Pig.  That's all folks.  Arrivederci.
