As individuals die every moment, how insensitive and fabricated a love it is to set aside a day from selfish routine in prideful, patriotic commemoration of tragedy. Just as God is provoked by those who tithe simply because they feel that they must tithe, I am provoked by those who commemorate simply because they feel that they must commemorate.
Don't get caught up in the wrapping paper and forget that the gift of the Christmas season is simply love.

A golf holiday with the guys is always nice. I'm a bit of a bandit on the golf course because I play with a handicap of 10, but I should be lower than that.
With all of their benefits, and there are many, one of the things I regret about e-books is that they have taken away the necessity of trawling foreign bookshops or the shelves of holiday houses to find something to read. I've come across gems and stinkers that way, and both can be fun.
