I was just looking down the 'scope at a new batch of collected animals, and guess what greated my eyes, seasons greetings. And I was so amazed to find an arcella, tardigrade, daphnia and 3 diatoms and a big load of writing all together under the slide, and all wearing festive gear... well I just HAD to share.

I was thinking of doing a little photoshop editing, but thought against it Razz



Merry Christmas to you all, have a wonderful time with family and friends, and a prosperous new year!

Hi Kite and Merry Christmas to you and your family. I hope all went good for you (presents and stuff), and you do not suffer a hangover. I loaded up on Coffee as usual and have so many packages of baked goods from my Amish neighbors that I will take most of it to work to share. Very Happy

Take care and enjoy the New Year's Eve Celebration.

Vodka and apple juice?! There's a new one I have never heard of but I guess it is no different from vodka and orange juice. Back in my very much younger days, I used to drink vodka from time to time, Smart'n Off I believe it was. Laughing

hmmm, well how much would it cost to send a big cake to Pennsylvania, and how long would it take, and would it go off before it got there?

let me see... too much, too long, yes probably

thats a no on the cake for you Razz

but you can have a photo of the yule log I baked for christmas


Ken, vodka nad apple juice just tastes like apple juice, even if it is half vodka half apple juice, so you end up drinking far too much of it Very Happy

remember, DRINK RESPONSIBLY!

Oh I do, I do indeed drink responsibly, when I did drink. Every morning I got up, there was always someone telling me that "I was responsible for something that happened the night before" Exclamation Laughing
