Now this all depends. For me tomorrow arrives before a lot of the planet. Does that mean it will end here but the other side of the planet continues until it reaches the 21st? Or does it mean that the entire planet ends once the last country hits the 21st? If that's the case, what about the countries that have passed into the 22nd before the last one reached the 21st? Will they cease even though it's the next day? Or does it mean...oh wait...I'm getting a headache. I'll just wait until the 22nd to try and figure this all out.
Since you asked, I certainly wouldn't post a blog that pretty much does what you're complaining about. But that's me.
Instead, I'd write about my travels. Countries I've been to or lived in. Weird things (at least to me) that I've seen or eaten. I'd tell about interesting people I've met. What I've learned from them. But I do all this on another torrent site that doesn't restrict people from blogging. I also support that site financially to keep it going. This one? Naaaa. It's too elitist for my taste.
Thanks zeke23. The same to yours as well. [:Qsmile]
A city raised taxidermist walks into a hillbilly bar.
One of the locals approaches him, eyes him up, and saya "Y'all aint from 'round here."
The taxidermist explains that he is from the city and passing through looking for work.
The hillbilly asks "What kinda work y'all do?"
Afraid the hillbilly will not recognize the word taxidermist, he says "I mount animals."
The hillbilly turns to his buddies and hollers...
"Its OK boys, he's one of us!"
In mostly rural areas of Switzerland, the week before Christmas, children dress up and visit homes with small gifts. Bell ringing has become a tradition, and each village competes with the next when calling people to midnight mass. After the service, families gather to share huge homemade doughnuts called ringli and hot chocolate.
I never went through anything like this so anything I say in understanding would just be wasted words. I do however feel for you and your wife and will keep you in my thoughts.
Not to make light of this but my mom and dad had similar problems. One year after they were married mom came down with polio, one of the last few people before the vaccine was discovered. She spent a long time in an iron lung, doctors saying she'd probably never leave it. Well...she did. But having babies would never be. She would always loose them after four or five months. The muscles in her stomach were just too weak according to the doctors back then. Don't know how true that is but that's what they were told.
Anyway, adoption was the only course open to them as well as taking in foster children. I was one of the foster kids that was adopted by them. Kids being kids, the slam of the time was 'Did your mother ever have any kids that lived?' To which I always answered 'No.' Got 'em every time. Of course being called an SOB had a response as well. That being 'I could be. I'm adopted and don't know who my mother was.' That usually ended with someone telling me how sorry they were. Yes, I was a smartass from a young age and it hasn't changed.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer didn't exist for the first part of the 20th Century. The character was created for a Christmas promotion and kids fell in love with him. He's been a part of Christmas ever since.
Since 1971, the Province of Nova Scotia has presented the Boston Christmas tree to the people of Boston, in gratitude for the relief supplies received from the citizens of Boston after a ship exploded in 1917 following a collision in the Halifax, Nova Scotia Harbor. Part of the city was leveled, killing and injuring thousands.
