    We're upgrading equipment here at work right now. I know it's a pain, but it has to happen. My only fear is that a fundamental change might trigger my work ISP to block MMC. It's one of the few messageboards that hasn't been blocked.

    Whatever happens, I'm sure everyone will understand. I'm here for the duration. As Jay said, lead on!

    I am very much a status quo type of person, change always makes me get that "pit" in the bottom of my stomach. As long as I can come to a place where I feel like I belong and not feel like an outcast because of my love for Christmas and the holiday season, I will be here. Just let me know how I can help.

    I like change and I don't like change. Change can be exciting and, at the same time, daunting. Either way, we will survive, expecially with the leadership we have here at MMC. I am looking forward to Live365 MCR, too. I will help in any way I can. Just let me know. I am a good typist and a good editor!

    Where you lead, I will follow...Lately in a quiet, annonymous way but follow I will. The fact that such a quality site has existed with no admission fee, as-it-were, is a credit to you. Change makes me nervous, I won't lie...I always remember the joke an old friend of mine told of Elvis outside a 7-11 when a bum says to him, "Hey man, got any change???" And Elvis replies, "Hey man, why can't things just stay the same???" I'm along for the ride Mr. W and supportive in whatever way I can be! I'm about to introduce the "new" Live365 version of www.MerryChristmasRadio.com as you know and joining with you in the spirit of change makes good sense to me! My electric problems at home are solved, I have new equipment that I almost know how to use and I have a renewed spirit where Christmas Music is concerned! And so away we go! As always, let me know what I can offer you!!!

    I'd like to put on record my thanks to Jeff and the team here at mmc. times are indeed hard for people and these forums have become a place for me to get away from the stress and worry. A place to enjoy the company and thoughts, musings and daily lives of others who like me, find their thoughts turning to Christmas past and future, during the day. Every time a new pod cast goes up it's like a treat. Something to enjoy instead of listening to the daily woes of the news on the commute to work. Times my be difficult now, but now is not forever. Things change, they always do. I hope this site continues and thrives, because good places like this are needed in good times and in bad.

    MMC offers those with a year long hankering, a place to gather and commune and celebrate life's small victories and miracles. Whether it be ten or ten thousand strong, those taking part leave better for the time spent.

    That's my opinion anyway...
    Thanks Jayish - Life does have a way of swallowing our time and today with the 24/7 lives we lead I sometimes feel myself getting tense with people and I must admit it isn't always them sometimes it is me - I guess this place offers such comfort it is better then any homemade mac n' cheese dish!!! LOL But really I mean that if I need a lift I know I can come here and go to the blogs or the count down thread it is great place

    I can understand your heart felt pains, your worries, your hopes, and your concerns. How you manage to do all that you do, is beyond me, your a better man than me....

    You are a inspiration to all of us! If this means anything, we need you, we thank you and we appreciate you and all that you do!

    I personally thank you for creating a place, were we can come together and share our love for Christmas, make new friends and for allowing us to become the extended family we are together....

    These are trying times that we are in and I have a feeling that they may get worse before they get any better. God willing, there will be better days ahead for all of our futures, but in the meantime, we all have each other; you have us and we have you! I wish you and your family(s), a blessed Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Years!!!

    More Than Just a Day

    Well written blog post, Jeff. On 9/11 I was in the military stationed at Dover AFB. I typed a blogpost reminiscing about that day 11 years ago and invite you to read it.

    The World's Largest Christmas Party -- Again!

    Jeff and the Christmas Crew - I know I am never much help when it comes to these things. I know you said in this blog that some things went wrong. I didn't realize too many of them. I think you guys did a great job and you always do. At this time, I can't think of anything different that you should be doing. It was so much fun last year. I was able to participate a lot last year. By looking at the calendar, it will be my weekend to work, plus I always work Sundays. If I think of something I will let you know - I know you guys want input - keep up the input though - you always do a great job.

    P.S. - Here I go: I guess the only thing I could think of right now is the schedule that was up last year. It was confusing at times. Maybe that she just me. I would sometimes read it and not know where to go from point A to B. If it's a new user, they may be lost. Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing your personal stories, Jeff. It's solemn to reflect how 9/11 and Christmas bring us together in radically different ways.
