Merry Christmas!

Dear All: It’s that time of year and me and mine are about to start our holidays, unfortunately, it looks like it will be during yet another lockdown, here in QC. The pandemic shows no sign of easing up, even a little, and it’s almost certain we’ll be “enjoying” yet another year of hardship across the board, as we battle omicron and any other variant thrown at us along the way. I don’t see an end in sight so, for now at least, me and mine are battening down the hatches (once again) and getting settled in for the long haul. Not to be broken by this despite not being able to see family, yet again, I want to take the time to wish each and everyone of you a very merry Christmas and happy holidays, stay safe everyone. And here’s to making the best of whatever 2022 will bring us. Hang in there people, this too shall pass. All the best! Love, Alex 0

Most especially for all their hard work and dedication to loving, sharing and promoting all genre with passion and fire. Even when it seems like they’re shouting into the ethereal void. I for one really appreciate the posts, the recommendations, and fellowship. I’m thankful for my Twitter friends. Thank you for continuing to be engaging, funny, serious, and supportive in all that you do. I think if I hadn’t had access …
