Subject: What would you like for Christmas?
From: McGrath of Harlow
Date: 06 Dec 10 - 07:06 PM

There's almost certainly been a few threads asking this, but I couldn't find any.

Anyway, I thought it might be a good way of getting ideas for what to give - or indeed what to hope to get. And maybe a way for people to drop hints.

Should this be a BS thread? Well, since I suspect some of the most interesting ideas might be related to music, not necessarily.

Think I already got mine: nice digital piano, and have just had delivery of a gig bag and dust cover for it. Have asked the (grown-up) kids to buy me a better pedal than the one that came with it!
But my best present will be my first grandchild: due any day now! Already buying musical toys for him/her.

A private concert with Donovan playing his music just for me "live."
(not on a record, CD or DVD but actually live in person).

Though that would be lovely, it's not gonna happen! :-(

Nice pair of black jeans would be nice.

Some folk CD's.

Lessons to learn to play the sitar. Not easy finding a teacher around here that teaches that instrument.

Nothing physical for me, thanks.

I'd like to live in a country that claims to be in favor of world peace but ISN'T the world's largest manufacturer and exporter of weapons of war.

A president with some balls.

Equal rights for gay folks.

A law making it a crime for a politician to knowingly tell a lie.

A law making it a crime for a news person -- or anyone claiming to be such -- to knowingly tell a lie.

True separation of church and state.

Sorry, I must be in a political mood today . . .

either would be Ok but the fiddle is something I've been on the lookout for a while.

Never seen one for sale in the Uk and I'm reticent to get without trying it out.

Actually - this sounds a bit like some of the comments on the back page of my local paper in the dating section. I can understand any confussion Mike.

I'm also hoping for good enough weather next week to get to the Christmas do - mainly carols - that we do for the old people's day centre. We had to negotiate with a neighbour last week to get us and our eqipement to the barn dance. perhaps I should be asking for a 4 by 4 - but perhaps not.

Seasons wishes to all
