Merry Christmas

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi Guys; I don't know what your take is at this time of the year and I don't know how you celebrate it or express it, but here's mine, MERRY CHRISTMAS to EVERYONE.

I am sitting here with a hot coffee, looking out at the tempest in southern ontario, wondering who is going to fly on New Years day, (speaking of traditions).

I would like to thank the guys who have offered me help when I asked, (and sometimes when I didn't), who shipped me stuff I bought and who sent me money when I sent stuff. I was raised to trust people until I was given a reason not to. RCC has continually provided me with the ongoing confidence and belief that most people truly care and are real good.

I have been active on this blog for +-5 years and am forever grateful that it is here. Jason, Merry Merry Christmas. You do a great job that most of us probably couldn't even come close to doing. Thank you.

I feel I know most of the regular posters, even though I wouldn't recognise you if I bumped into you at Timmys. Pass the wishes on to your families. They need it too, because if you are anything like me, and you probably are, being an RC'er, we must express our love to our families for learning to love us for our little quirks, which of course we all have.

As we enter Christmas week, let's all be thankful, try to be gracious to all people, set the right examples, and most of all be merry.

Merry Christmas everyone.

I don't have the answers, but I have a personal relationship with the Guy that does.

Very nicely put John. I do believe you've expressed the sentiments of most of us here on RCCanada.

I too am very thankful for what RCC has done for me personally. This site is truly about making friends and helping one another enjoy our hobby.

This time of year is a celebration to the closeness of families and the best of friends and a time to help others less fortunate than ourselves. So regardless of what your personal beliefs are, may you enjoy all the best of this holiday season as you spend time with those you love!

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year! And thank you RCCanada!

As for me, I am thankful for the friends I have made on RCC, for the opportunity to share knowledge, insight, techniques, life expereinces back and forth, not to mention the entertainment factor provided by some of the genuine krazies (like the Alberta bunch)

To one and all, a very Merry Christmas and a wish for not only God's richest blessing in the New Year, but also the ability to recognize it.

with regards, Boomer

And let us not forget, wherever they are serving, those Men and Women in the Canadian forces who are protecting our rights and freedoms to enjoy our hobby.

Or in other words...

As they say at my multi-cultural workplace...

Have a happy non-denominational gathering of friends and family!

If you're not part of the solution... you may be insoluble!
