Dear Readers,

  From all of us here at we wish you and your families a happy and holy Christmas and a blessed New Year.   

The Christmas reflections from our crew are sure to bring some smiles. I encourage you to view the website versions of these reflections that contain many photos.
  Barring major developments, will not be publishing over the holidays until Monday January 5, 2009.
  May the Light of the Newborn Babe of Bethlehem shine in your hearts forever.
  John-Henry Westen
