Can be good for pics, driving along the A30 yesterday looking towards Dartmoor the mist was glowing from the low sun and lighting all the autumnal shades. Nowhere to stop and it was gone very quickly, how many times does that happen?

A moment lost in time, like tears in the rain.

Time for my annual visit to the loft and drag down the decorations! In the news the traditional Christmas pud is dying out in favour of more modern desserts, same with fruit-based cake. Festive carrot cake anyone?

And time for my annual rant against the colour red at Christmas, itís everywhere including Santaís outfit. For hundreds of years up until some time in the early 20th century green was the theme, reflecting the decorations brought in from the surrounding countryside. Saint Nicolas wore a green outfit (something to do with the Green Man perhaps?) and it had a certain mystical connection with the natural world but then decades ago Coca-Cola ran a Christmas campaign changing everything to red and ruined it for ever; luckily in some parts of Europe they still hold to the traditional forms of decoration and how much nicer and somehow lacking in the taint of commercial greed it is.

Sint Nikolaas, who is celebrated here on the 5th (though many will celebrate him this weekend) has always worn red, as a bishop.
Father Christmas wore green. Two different people.

Our pilgramage to the loft will wait for a few more weeks. I get fed up with the decorations after a few days so I won't be putting them up so early!

I mad a proper pud last year, and delicious it was too. Trouble is only one of my sons likes it besides me so it is hardly worth the effort. Can't buy ready made ones here, and they arent geerally as good as home made anyway. One of the sons will be responsible for the pud this year so who know what we'll get.

Coca Cola: Invented by a morphine addict and originally contained cocaine until the beginning of the 1900's.

Thanks for the link, Gwyn, interesting how different countries celebrate. When in Norway Christmas dinner was baked cod on Christmas Eve, with present giving. I like to bring holly and ivy in but of course not too soon or it is dead before the day.

And I will wait for ever, beside the silent mirror
And fish for bitter minnows amongst the weeds and slimy water

Transparency is often difficult to focus on, negativity however, should be handled with care.
