Merry Christmas!

This really is a special occasion, when 'most everybody seems to have a small extra measure of patience and good will toward men.

I wish my friends a lovely Christmas season. Take some time to smell the evergreen, or cinnamon, or apple pie, or turkey, or whatever your favorite holiday smell happens to be. Get an extra hour of sleep. (Except on Christmas morning, if you're in a house with kids... of course!) Put together a complicated toy - or a bike - following Chinese-translated-into-English instructions.

Make some plans for the upcoming year. Do some dreaming. Consider the mission and message of our Savior, Jesus Christ. (Of course, the holiday was a celebration of life and rebirth before it became a "Christian" holiday... and long before it became so commercial.)

One of the best gifts you could share with a loved one, is a love for transportation cycling. It's an all-year-'round gift: increased vitality and energy, a taste of nature, a FREE workout, and money-in-pocket!

Whatever form your celebration takes... BE JOYFUL AND SAFE!

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Bikeboy! May all your winds be from behind you, may your tires never puncture, and may motorists be courteous and sharing of the road!
