Last night I had E, Ms. XTC and BobbyP, and Wrestlerette and Wgo over for a lazy Solstice celebration. The idea was to get together and have one last relaxing evening before we all headed into each of our holiday madnesses. I had requested that everyone bring a piece of literature along the lines of the ancient Solstice celebrations themes of rejuvenation and friendship to share. I was having a really hard time finding something, so yesterday afternoon I wrote this instead. I’m posting it to pass along to all my family and friends, especially those of you that I will not get to share any time with this holiday season. (more…)

I had been preparing for the Alabama vs LSU game today to be a warm one, but it looks like it will end up being the coldest game of the year so far. (more…)
