Merry Christmas From The Mods

Recommended Posts

We the mods of NBN are,

Reading all your posts from afar,

Jokes and opinions,

(BA posts, the sticky 'uns)

Smoothing the things that jar.

 

Ooohh watch that post, the naughty one,

 Just too far that joke has gone.

Shall we hide it? Let it ride?  It's 

Bound to cause a lot of fun.

 

Christmas comes but once a year,

it's the season for good cheer,

Post of boats and cheery notes

Of quarrels we'll steer well clear.

The Forum's in a holiday mood,

Lots of gifts and plenty of food.

Friends we recall, God bless us all

Mods wish you a great New Year.

Obnoxious waste of good wine.

Good glass of 8 or 9 year old Rioja yes please.

I would find it very hard to believe that any bottle of wine would survive 8 or 9 days amongst this lot let alone years!

As an aperitif before the lunch quite pleasant, but don't drink any more than one glass, and with the meal my I recommend a good German Riesling slightly chilled

For a French white wine, a Sancerre, Pouilly Fumé, or Chablis. Sancerre also do an excellent red wine.

For Christmas pudding you need Sainsbury's Asti Spumante. The perfect combination!

Ha ha, i keep telling you lot, i`m allergic to alcahol.  

I shall be clinking glasses with an orange juice and lemoade, or if they have any, ginger ale and lemonade.  It`s great to stay sobre, that way i can still drive with no risk of getting done for drinking and driving, and i can watch others make fools of themselves.

Getting a bit wistful now, as I have just watched Carols from Kings College on the BBC so I am finally getting the Christmas spirit!

It occurs to me that during my life, I seem to have spent at least half of my Christmas "holidays" away from home and so tonight I am remembering all those who cannot be with their families because they are on duty :

They may be fire-fighters, nurses, police, armed forces, merchant seaman or even those out there on the North Sea gas platforms, keeping our homes supplied with heat. I think of them tonight, I thank them and I wish them well!

I too remember those responsible for keeping the electricity flowing on christmas day, those at the call centres and those on standby who might be called upon to leave at a moments notice - even in the middle of their christmas meal to go out and reconnect the power supply in case of a power cut.

I agree with your thoughts Vaughan and Peter

I would also offer my thoughts to those who have lost loved ones and been through adversity this year

Christmas can be a difficult time for some

Talking of those moderators, we haven't heard a lot from Old Wussername for a week or two as he has been "up the orsepittle" having a bit of an operation. He is now home making a slow but steady recovery and I was in touch with him yesterday evening. Not quite sure what it involved but I am told they had to change the cutless bearing, tighten up his stern gland and do a visual inspection of his flywheel thrust plate. His universal joints were a bit "wonky" an' all and they changed his anodes while they were at it.

I don't know if he is reading the forum much at the moment but I am sure we all wish him and Anne a happy Christmas and a speedy recovery. He is looking forward to seeing us all again at the spring meet.
