in reply to This season I'm celebrating...

... completion of phase I of a 1-year Perl/Java project. Software delivered and accepted, I have much to be thankful for. Phase II starts, now. :o)

I also feel that checkboxes would have been better for this one. We are celebrating Winter Solstice, Christmas, and the New Year.

Speaking of the New Year, my 4-year-old daughter loves having a little New Year party at our house. We do the countdown at around 8:00, blow horns, throw up some confetti, and the kids get to drink sparkling grape juice. Then she asks if we can celebrate the New Year every night. A very profound request, imho.

This was actually a nice poll for me, reminding me to be thankful on a daily basis. It is far too easy to get wrapped up in intellectual problems and forget how important gratitude is.

btw, the "parole" item got a smile out of me. Thanks, tye. Good job.
