of good things happening for Christmas, one of our local radio station's launched it's yearly
programme to raise money for the Orphan's Fund, they have been doing this for many years now making sure that no child goes without a toy.
And the fire department has spent dozens of man hours decorating a section of one of our parks that connects with the Christmas train and you get to ride the train for a donation which
goes to the burn unit at one of our hospitals.Next week a huge toy drive at a hotel when you take an umwrapped toy you get a good breakfast. Winners all round.
Many private homes are beautifully lit up and one man who lost a grand child several years ago accepts donations from folks who tour his garden and that money is given to the
children's hospital fund [ we are building a new one}.
And today is a beautiful sunny one. emoticon

    At work we are filling shoe boxes with goodies to send as gifts to those of our troops who haven't got families to send to them. Pete & I also only send cards to those of our friends who haven't got email addresses, those who have, get an email greeting & we make a donation to Help for Heroes. Christmas is a great time of year to make these things happen.
