Happy Boxing Day everyone, especially to my mates in the UK. I saw a weather report on Sky TV the other day - the temperatures were 3, 5, 6, 2 and coloured blue except for a solitary 8, which was coloured orange. I'm sorry but 8 degrees celsius maximum temp does NOT qualify for an orange sticker. Where I come from it would have icicles hanging from it.

And a Happy St Stephens Day to Michelle in Ireland. Here is a quote from giving a short biography of St Stephen.

"...He scolded his enemies for not having believed in Jesus. At that, they rose up in great anger and shouted at him. But Stephen looked up to Heaven and said that he saw the heavens opening and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.
His hearers plugged their ears and refused to listen to another word. They dragged St. Stephen outside the city of Jerusalem and stoned him to death."

And to show that the Catholic Church has a sense of humor, they made St Stephen patron saint of stonemasons.
