    * 45 Shopping Days Until Christmas *

    So, what are a few of the gifts you plan to give this Christmas; and, providing that you've been a good boy or girl, maybe receive? I'd like to give Russ one of 'Bruno Costa's cheap Nespresso Coffee Machines' and a year's supply of his favorite coffee. And also, "All You Ever Wanted to Know About Designing Websites and Server Upgrades for Dummies" to Chris. lol.... with thanks to both for the enjoyment they've made possible for online chess players and 'forum dwellers' from around the globe since February, 2001. For the Gift of Christmas Morning, 2013, in my new home I'll be grateful beyond words. -Bob

    For you, Andy, I'd like to arrange for delivery of high quality Peach Ice Cream to your home all summer long in 2014.

    Thanks, Bobby. Maybe I'll move to Australia, where summer arrives next month.

    Kind of you, Ponderable, to gift me so generously; however, the dynamics and equilibrium of this forum would probably suffer. Counterpoint and countervailing balance are as necessary in conversation as in music. For you, I would like to arrange an annual allowance for replacing worn out thread resuscitation equipment with thanks for your diligence. -Bob

    There goes the £30 you saved, plus a little more, I'd wager. 🙁
