I guess I'm not technically in the blogosphere, unless you count lurking and posting in comment boxes in various ether neighborhoods. Nonetheless, I'm drinking a Pete's Wicked Ale even as I type and I just raised it to you in a holiday toast.
Just dropped in for a moment while the wife and three dogs are asleep upstairs to wish you a very blessed and merry Christmas. This is a great blog -- one of my favorites -- and I pray that 2004 sees youo continue it with all the class and style to which your loyal readers have grown accustomed.
All the best.
Merry Christmas, Charles! May all the joy of this most joyous of seasons be yours.
