In this season of gift-giving, what's your best present?

We all got a beauty from Rapparee on the Merry Xmas thread, but I have to mention one I inadvertently gave myself:

I confess I subscribe to Amazon Unlimited [sic] Music, and this morning I searched there for "Folkways."

Well. There was just about everything I had ever heard of, from Joseph Spence to Mongolian tuva singers, and much, much more that I never knew existed. Right now I'm listening to Eddie Pennington, with my jaw down around my collarbone.

How about you? What did you get or hope to? Give or plan to?

after Winter Storm Ethan mired the parked cars, including mine,
in just enough inches of snow
to get stuck three or four times....

Yes, I took it personally.

My best present this year came from one of my yoga teachers--my very own yoga bolster for my home practice. (If you are picturing someone doing something crazy difficult, don't!) Here's how I use it, except I add a yoga block instead of the towel suggested in the text) under my head. Without it, my neck is bent back and my chin juts into the air. This is a great shoulder opener. Sometimes I also bend my knees, put the soles of my feet together, and put blocks under my knees for support. That's a hip opener. Restorative yoga is a gentle, comfortable way to increase flexibility.

Here is a gift for everyone who values freedom and humanity One Lieutenants Ultimate Gift... (from today's Washington Post). Lots of good people go to extreme measures to protect out freedoms, it's not asking much of the rest of us to resist and remove the charlatan who currently occupies, and disgraces, the White House.

In the wars being waged on social media I believe there are defenses and answers to defuse the text bombs to be found right here on mudcat BS.

The seeds of the mutual care and concern may be in the moderators, Max or the enlightened members with music at their core. I don't know.

There are answers here that fake book, twitter and google need to scale up to bring harmony to the world, or at least something that resembles harmony beyond the quest for money.

maybe this is more of a Christmas wish but it might be good idea Mark needs to see.

Um, my batleth earrings?

I hope they're not too sharp. Could be dangerous.



My favourite?
A watch.    There's no present like the time.

My sister bought me an apron that had emblazoned on the front in banner headlines PRICK WITH A FORK. I was forced to pose with barbecue fork in hand for photos that were then disseminated to the whole Shaw worldwide diaspora. Forkin' hell!

Getting the stitches from wrist surgery out in time to play a bit at Christmas services. Painful but worth it.

A beautiful little bell that chimes gently as I ride my bike. A ton of firewood. Books. Flowers.

Best present(s). The newly moved in young couple upstairs gave me a box of biscuits for "doing their bins" and the new young lady neighbour next door gave me some home baking for doing hers. This is not to say the rum and brandy etc from everybody else wasn't appreciated.

Many years ago when I had just installed a pond in the garden, my children gave me some tadpoles for my birthday. Those tadpoles' descendants still produce frogspawn and more tadpoles every spring.

I made my husband swear upon pain of death NOT to buy anything for me, as I'm perfectly happy with what I've got. But he presented me with three bars of gorgeous rose-scented soap, AND a lovely wildlife calendar. He couldn't have chosen better.
