Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, folks! Happy holidays to those who don't celebrate Christmas! If there's a particular kind of festivity you take part in this time of year that isn't Christian in origin, please post it here for recognition! I'm interested, particularly, in seeing if much religious diversity accompanies a fascination for the Bronze Age! Ha!

I'm thanking God this season for the success I've gotten in these forums, and for a whole great year ahead! Imagine all of the information we'll have here by the end of next December!

Cheers!

Well, I *hope* everyone had a Merry Christmas! Got a couple great books, "Bronze and the Bronze Age", and "Prehistoric Fabrics". And a belt sander!

Everyone writing up their New Year's Resolutions? I think I failed in mine for 2005: Watch more TV and gain 20 pounds. Oh, well. Still makes sense for one's resolutions to be something to look forward to, eh?

Khairete,

Matthew

Mine last year was to finish my Mycenaean and Egyptian kits. Guess what it'll be this year?

Same damn thing... :\

Excellent presents (don't you mean "Prehistoric textiles" b.t.w.?)

As long as we keep trying.. stuff eventually will get done..
I'm still bugging with the bronze statue of the Danish warrior.. I'll hope to get it finally done while I'm having my holidays this week..

Greetings LuciŽn..

Whoops, yup! I was in worse shape than I thought, yesterday. (Discovered a pinhole leak in a pipe Sunday night, tried patching with rubber and a hose clamp but it won't stop dripping. And I have a very strong if irrational paranoia about pipes and plumbing, so I was sick all day Monday...) Thanks for catching that!

Plumbing can get you down. We had a persistent dripping tap in the kitchen that nothing would cure. Spent so much time on it and got so fed up that we eventually tore down the kitchen and built a new extension and kitchen complete with evrything new including taps. (rest of kitchen was grotty as well)

...**&&@@@@ thing was, within a month of the new kitchen being built a tap was dripping again!!!!! but we now have a new new mixer tap that only drips sometimes.

On water and the Bronze Age, I think we underestimat how far people would be willing to carry water for their minimal requirements thus settlements away from water aren't unusual.

Happy Happy New Year to everyone.
