I hope everyone had a glorious and festive Christmas. I hope everyone celebrated the birth of Christ with loved ones, family, and friends. I hope everyone who traveled reached their destinations safely.

Laura and I had a wonderful Christmas day. We watched several DVDs—including "Resurrection" and "The Gospel of John." We enjoyed an excellent meal of pork loin, stuffed with hot Italian sausage dressing; mashed potatoes; Brussels sprouts; cranberry sauce; and gravy. Today, we shall rest and dine with considerably greater restraint.
