By the way Drazen - thank you for sending me that reindeer. Very kind. It arrived via Czeski Republika Direkt/Royal Mail Parcels this morning. Sadly it had not enjoyed the journey!!! I actually thought you were sending me a locally crafted toy Rudolph for junior ... he'll be disappointed  (although not as much as the reindeer).

We really need to work on our translations...

Ah well, looks like it won't be Chicken or Turkey this year after all. Plenty of bones for some soup too if anybody wants some?

I've sent you some ferrets by way of return D. They make very good slippers!

BTW what do they call Santa in your part of Lower Wallachia? We call him Father Christmas over here. The yanks of course call him Bill Gates or Santa Claus or both. The French call him Pere Noel and the Russians Grandfather Frost (which I particularly like). There are other versions too.

I heard a great story on BBC Radio 4 (FOOC) a year or so back around this time of year. It seems that some small Japanese city (can't remember name) found it was getting more influxes of western tourists and decided to capitalise upon this good fortune in a manner appropriate to our western traditions - particularly at Christmas time.

What minimal research they did led to them to erect a sizable structure on the front of their version of Harrods/Bloomingdales that they felt would make us euros and yanks feel right at home ...

Picture this (and it is the gospel truth I assure you) they set up a huge crucifix attached to he building above the entrance and nailed to it was ... Father Christmas!!! (and not JC as you were probably expecting!!!). Talk about mixing up your religious and seasonal images ...

I'm sure they thought it was nice.

Be careful, Draz. I'm a re-gifter and I haven't sent you your present yet!

In Prague they have The Golem Perhaps that is who you saw dressed like Jadwiga? He doesn't do Christmas as such (different tradition) but does leave mud everywhere...

My interpreter took me for a latte at Starbucks in Prague when we played there. I had an idea at the King Karel for a song called 'Face on the Bridge'.Hasn't been used yet,because I haven't developed it. The Golem plays guitar in Thin Lizzy.
