For Auld Lang Syne

  • Should auld acquaintance be forgot
    and never brought to mind?

    Should auld acquaintance be forgot
    and days of auld lang syne?

  • For auld lang syne, my dear,

    for auld lang syne,

    we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
    for auld lang syne.

  • Should auld acquaintance be forgot
    and never brought to mind?

    Should auld acquaintance be forgot
    and days of auld lang syne?

  • And here's a hand, my trusty friend

    And gie's a hand o' thine

    We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet

    For auld lang syne


Happy New Year

I would like to wish you all the best for 2009. May each day of the year be better and happier than the day before.

How Was Your Christmas?

I hope your Christmas celebration was a good one. Ours had its ups and downs. I couldn't celebrate with my family (parents and siblings live too far away), so the wife and I celebrated Christmas day at our nieces along with members from her side. We then celebrated another Christmas get-together on the 28th with my Mother-in-law, one of our sons, his better half, and our grandson. Our oldest couldn't make it though so that was a downer. The worse part was knowing one of our neighbours in our building passed away Christmas eve. It was rough for them (still is) but they are managing. I wish them luck.

I found the following clip and remember when I used to watch it as a youngster. Felt I had to post it as the last Christmas clip of the year.

The True Meaning Of Christmas

Since this is Christmas day and a great many people tend to forget what we are actually supposed to be celebrating this day, I thought it appropriate to post this little cartoon clip.

Thank you Linus and Merry Christmas everyone.

Twas The Night Before Christmas

Twas The Night Before Christmas by Clement Moore is "among the best Christmas poems ever". It is equal only to "Yes Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus". Thank you  Johnny Bristol for your interpretation of this classic.

From my home to yours, "Merry Christmas To You All"..

White Christmas

With the way the weather has been going, it seems a little redundant to add the following clip. But, White Christmas with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen is my favourite Christmas movie (and it's not being shown this year, dag nab-it) I felt compelled to add the title song here.

Jeff Dunham And Walter

Every year it's the same thing. Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays? Enough with the "politically correct crap" already. I grew up with Merry Christmas so as Walter says in the clip below, Merry Christmas.

All I Want For Christmas

Well I guess most have heard All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth done by one child singer or another. I found this version by the Disneys Goofy and his son Max.

A Mr. Bean Christmas

One of the funniest characters comedian Rowan Atkinson came up with is the hopeless Mr. Bean. One of Mr. Beans funniest sketches is none other than the Christmas sketch. I would love to get my hands on a turkey like the one in the sketch. The only problem though would be trying to find an oven big enough.

A Hippo For Christmas?

Although I don't ever remember hearing this song, apparently it was a fairly big "novelty" song in the late 50's early 60's. My question is though, "Why would anyone want a hippopotamus for a Christmas present"?

Alvin And The Chipmunks Classic

One week today is Christmas day and I couldn't help but add this video because of the memories it invokes.

Snoopy Had It Right

During the 1960's, there was a group who had limited success with their music. One song they recorded during the Christmas season was Snoopys Christmas. All about hapless Charlie Browns dog and how he and the Red Baron celebrated Christmas.

Dammit, I'm Vixen

What happens when one of Santas original 8 reindeer loses it and gets mad at Rudolph? He sings a fuuny country and western song and threatens to "kick some reindeer booty". Very funny tune. I hope you enjoy it.

Last Christmas-Crazy Frog

Although I may be in my mid '50's, I can't help admit I do like "Crazy Frog/That Annoying Thing". I thought I can't show funny Christmas videos without at least one with the Frog. Enjoy.

A Lenny And Squiggy Christmas

If you were a fan of Happy Days (Richie, Fonzie, etc.) and/or its spinoff Laverne And Shirley (have to admit both shows had some great classic rock n' roll), then you should remember the two half-wits Lenny and Squiggy (played terrifically[sp] by David Lander and Michael McKean).

Here is their Christmas song, "Christmas At The Poor-House". By the way, Michael McKean (Lenny) is actually playing the guitar. He was one of the stars of the movie "This Is Spinal Tap".

Christmas Is A-Coming

Growing up, I remember my Mother singing...

  • Christmas is a-coming and the geese are getting fat
    Be sure to put a penny in the old mans hat
    If you haven't got a penny then a half-penny* will do
    If you haven't got a half-penny then God bless you

*When my Mother sang it, half-penny sounded like hay-penny

I don't remember the rest but that does bring up the fact that Christmas is close. From now untill Christmas, I will post Christmas related videos. They are mostly music. Some are funny(most are), some are seriously done.

I hope you like the ones I've picked.

Everyone knows about the battle of the sexes but now their is a reasonable explanation as to the cause. Enjoy.

Prayers Badly Needed

The following is for a special someone facing life threatening surgery today. We are praying everything works out for the good.

Healing God, when I think of surgery, I am anxious,
but I know that through the skill you have given to the doctors and nurses,
you can bring relief to her body.

Be with the doctors and nurses in your power and wisdom,
and be with her in your love and peace.

Her favourite entertainer.

What Went Through His Mind?

For most people, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what we've been given and savour the scents of crisp autumn days and pumpkin pie. For some, it's a little more complicated.

One October afternoon when my daughter was in kindergarten, I picked her up after school. She bobbed out to the car and crawled into the back seat.

"What did you do today?" I asked.

She couldn't wait to tell me.

"We learned that boys are different from girls" she chirped.

Looking into the rear view mirror, I could just see the top of her head. "My teacher told us that boys have a thing the girls don't," she added.

"Well, yes they do..." I said cautiously.

I couldn't think of anything else to say, so we were quiet for a moment. Then she piped up again. "That's how girls know that boys are boys," she said. "They see that thing that hangs down and they know that he is a boy."

I mentally calculated the distance home.

Our five-minute commute already felt like an hour.

"Did you know that when the boys see a girl they puff up?"

My palms were beginning to sweat. "Um...well.." I was still searching for something new to say, to change the subject when she asked, "Why do the girls like the boys to have those things?"

Well I didn't know what to say. "Oh," I stammered.

She didn't wait for my answer. She had her own. "It's cause it moves when they walk and then the girls see that and that's when they know they are boys and that's when they like them. Then the boy sees the girl and he puffs up, and then the girl knows he likes her, too. And then they get married. And then they get cooked."

That last part confused me a bit, but on the whole I thought she had a pretty good grasp on things.

As soon as we got home and I pulled into the garage, she hopped out of the car, fishing something out of her school bag.

"I drew a picture," she said. "Do you want to see?"

I wasn't sure I did, but I looked at it anyway.

I had to sit down.

There, all puffed up so to speak, looking mighty attractive for the ladies, was a crayon drawing of a great big Tom Turkey. His snood, the thing that hangs down over his beak, the thing that female turkeys find so irresistible, was magnificent.

His tail feathers were standing tall and proud.

She was a little offended when I laughed so hard at her drawing, that tears streamed down my cheeks.

But when I told her I loved it - and I did - she got over her pique.

That was the end of that, for her anyway.

But I'm not so lucky..

Every year I remember that conversation.

And to be quite honest, I haven't looked at a turkey the same way since.
