    Thanks. We wouldn't be doing what we do if we didn't enjoy it, which is a good thing.

    The very best back to you and yours, and everyone else as well.

    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

    Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays! A joyous, peaceful, and safe season to all my Brothers and Sisters.

    I think Bill Murray in Scrooged said best how I have come to feel about this time of year:

    It's the one night when we all act a little nicer.
    We...we smile a little easier. We...we...share a little more.
    For a couple of hours we are the people we always hoped we would be.

    It's really a miracle because it happens every Christmas Eve
    And if you waste that miracle, you're gonna burn for it. I know. You have to do something. You have to take a chance and get involved.

    There are people that don't have enough to eat and who are cold. You can go and greet these people.
    Take an old blanket out to them or make a sandwich and say, "Here."
    "l get it now."

    And if you give, then it can happen, the miracle can happen to you.
    Not just the poor and hungry, Everybody's gotta have this miracle!
    It can happen tonight for you all!
    If you believe in this pure thing,
    the miracle will happen and you'll want it again tomorrow!
    You won't say, "Christmas is once a year and it's a fraud." It's not!
    It can happen every day! You've just got to want that feeling!
    You'll want it every day! It can happen to you!
    I believe in it now.
    I believe it's gonna happen to me, now. I'm ready for it!
    And it's great. It's a good feeling.
    It's better than I've felt in a long time.
    I'm ready.
    Have a Merry Christmas. Everybody.

    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late

    To my Brothers and Sisters working on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day...

    May the tones be silent, and may you return home to enjoy the holiday with your family. Keep in your thoughts our Brothers and Sisters who were called to duty in the military and are far away from their families serving on the front lines protecting our freedoms and those families who lost their loved ones in the line of duty this year.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    And the same to you. All of you.

    As much bullschit as there is on here, I have learned more than I could ever have hoped to from all of you here. I can't thank you enough.

    Stay safe through the holiday season, and may 2011 bring you everything you could ever hope for.
