Comments to close over Christmas…

I’m heading off for Christmas tomorrow, around about midday. Unless something big happens, I don’t intend to blog after then until the new year. In previous years we’ve left the comments zone open over the holidays, but considering some of the heat (and too little light) that’s been generated over the last week or so, we’ll turn them off from twelve tomorrow.


    Nollaig shona duit to all the sluggeratti.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy Festivus, everyone!

    Happy Festivus

    How appropriate

    Those attending participate in the “Airing of Grievances” which is an opportunity for all to vent their hostilities toward each other

    Henry 94,

    You gotta love the ‘airing of grievances’! My family’s been doing it over holiday get-togethers for decaades now — but it took one memorable for episode of Seinfeld to give it a name!

    A very Merry Christmas to you and yours!


    It’s the feats of strength that I’m looking forward to.

    Time to reflect, and consider what is really important.

    I wonder where I would fit in. Wait, there I found myself. I must be a stray.

    What am I going to do over Christmas???

    Have a good time everyone.

    PS to Mick and the team. By God you will be badly missed but more the well deserved.
    Thanks again.

  • Dualta

    Peace and goodwill all. Have a great holiday.

    You’ll be lucky to get that break Mick. I used to love when we got to the third week in December because the volume on the Newshound was so light. That hasn’t been the case recently.

  • Oh yeah, just remembered – Merry Christmas to you Mick and all the rest of you sluggers.

  • Harry Flashman

    I see there still are posts after 12, which 12 did he mean?

    Well anyway Happy Christmas to Slugger and all the posters here.

    All the best.
