Merry Christmas Eve, everyone.

If you’re traveling to be with family and friends, please be safe.

“Silent Night” (German: “Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht”) is a popular Christmas carol. The original lyrics of the song “Stille Nacht” were written in Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria, by the priest Father Joseph Mohr and the melody was composed by the Austrian headmaster Franz Xaver Gruber. In 1859, John Freeman Young (second Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Florida) published the English translation that is most frequently sung today.[1] The version of the melody that is generally sung today differs slightly (particularly in the final strain) from Gruber’s original, which was a sprightly, dance-like tune in 6/8 time, as opposed to the slow, meditative lullaby version generally sung today. Today, the lyrics and melody are in the public domain.

    I hope everyone is enjoying Christmas Eve. It’s raining and cold here in Tucson, I love this weather.

    • Merry Christmas Eve, Liza. I’m a little behind but cooking again. I cooked until 4 this morning. Check your email. Let me know if you got it. My phone is acting up. I don’t know what’s wrong.

      • Liza says:

        I did get it and replied.

        It’s like you’re cooking for an army, or at least a regiment. I hope you get to rest soon.

    I’m glad I didn’t hear Brokaw and Matthews (can’t stand either of them). My blood pressure would have spiked.

    Repeat after me:

    Identity politics is a right wing slur to describe civil rights.

    Repeat. Till it sinks in. https://twitter.com/sunnysingh_n6/status/1208697031516180482?s=20

    And The Tweet Goes On (@lacadri34) Tweeted:
    The purity tests are hurting the Democratic party. This is why the attacks on Pete aren’t working. Most Democrats don’t care about big donors. We’ll take an American big donor any day over Russia or Saudi donations. Foreign money is the problem. https://twitter.com/lacadri34/status/1209099903235952640?s=20

    Jamal Khashoggi was murdered by MBS of Saudi Arabia. Trump has refused to acknowledge both US & Turkish intelligence & instead taken the murderer’s side (sound familiar?). Saudi Arabia promised to buy weapons from the US & has a lucrative relationship with Kushner. Pay for play. https://twitter.com/WajahatAli/status/1209100800804446210?s=20

    If Nancy Pelosi holds these articles, and one of the Committees opens investigations & starts having hearings on other, unrelated articles………..

    I will fall to my knees in fealty to the greatest pure politician in the world.

    I’m starting to think she is exactly that good. https://twitter.com/OPCGhost/status/1208846112582488066?s=20
