A very happy Christmas to you all. - Wemyss's Appalling Hobby:
From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'
A very happy Christmas to you all.

Amidst the sheer horridness of the world, there is always Light.


Nor is it too late to bring more light.  The regular rota of volunteers for almost every service, formal or informal, such as, for example, Meals on Wheels where that has not been wholly taken over by government, want holidays as well; perhaps you can act as a relief aide, any time this week.  Look out any OAPs whose schedules for such things as dialysis have been moved about due to the holidays: perhaps their usual carers are overwhelmed or transport has become difficult due to scheduling conflicts.  Many OAPs, also, may perhaps have overspent on Christmas, simply out of not realising how much dearer things have become.  They’ll reject and resent alms; but you can certainly do good by stealth by quietly paying some of their accounts whilst they’re not looking – if, and only if, you know the old party well enough that this is not a raging impertinence.  Contribute time – money as a last resort – to Mencap, or the Red Cross, Carer Support or the Alzheimer Society.  Remember also the voles and otters, the RSPCA and your local Wildlife Trust, and the RSPB.




A very happy Christmas to you all.
