I've posted some stuff from our Christmas archives, but there's more here. At any rate, the standing rib roast will be done this afternoon, then its gifts, an outdoor candlelight service with living nativity in Lyme, NH, and then stockings tomorrow and the Chanukah services at the Roth Center.

All of us hope that you and yours will have a healthy and happy Christmas and Hanukah. You bring us an enormous amount of enjoyment throughout the year, but it's always a pleasure to take time to tell you how much we appreciate everyone's participation at Brothers Judd. Be well, friends.

Be well, friends.

Can I get an amen?

Say, what is little Griffin Judd going to get?

I seem to recall a plaintive wail of a toy denied a few weeks back.....

He and his little brother each get a Gameboy from their Grandfather. Then they get another control console and same used games for the old Nintendo 64. Thanks all for your advice.

Amen. Blessings to all.

Best to you and yours, OJ and all your readers.


Have you ever wandered into the rib roast roasting controversy here? Almost as much advice out there as for cooking as a turkey. I'm doing ours low at 200 convection (225 regular) and slow (about 2.5 hours) for a 5 lb 2 rib roast. Rosy red all the way through including the spinalis dorsi muscle at the top of the roast which is the tastiest piece of beef you can get.

A Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to all of the brethren and their families and friends.

According to Krusty the Klown, that should be "a kwazy kwanzaa".

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah, all, and health and happiness to you and your families.

Same to you, Orrin, and thanks again for letting us come play with your bandwidth. And for the books and the football pools.

Merry Christmas to all at brothers judd, nearly the only website that matters.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Kwazy Kwanzaa, Felicitous Festivus, Happy New Year to all of you and all of yours.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanakkuh to all of our friends out there. Gloria in excelsis Deo, et in terra, pax, hominibus bonae voluntatis.

Even the trolls, who are forgiven and loved.

Happy Christmas and Merry Hanukkah to all you monotheists ... including my fellow panentheists ... and especially to you atheists. (Happy Kwanzaa, not, that ersatz holiday being essentially a celebration of socialism. Bah, humbug.)

Thank you, Mr. Judd and all the assorted Brothers and Brothers with other Mothers (and Sisters, too!)for the best running conversation available.

I hope everyone has a joyous and peaceful Christmas. God bless us, everyone!

Best wishes to all!

Nice associating with mostly upright and righteous folks here at the Brothers Judd site.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy New Year to all who deserve it. The others can play with coal.

All the best this Christmas & Hanukah, and in 2006 to all the Judds and everyone who vists here. Thank you for a corner of sanity.

Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and/or Happy Chanukah to all (though remind me if I'm having back problems next year to buy lighter and less bulky presents...)

It is officially Christmas day now here in the Mountain time zone. The stockings are filled, toys are out. Time for us to go to bed.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah to the Judds and to all the regular posters who make this site worth visiting.

Merry Christmas! Happy Chanuka!

Best wishes for the holiday season. May there be lots of light and warmth.

I have the good fortune to be in San Miguel de Allende for Christmas. It is the first town of the Mexican Revoulution and let me tell you they know how to celebrate the season. We were out until past midnight traveling from one Catholic Church to the next. The sight of these beautiful little kids singing to the newborn baby Jesus and the churchs ringing their bells at full tilt was almost enough for this old atheist to attend a Mass for the 1st time in 26 years. Almost. Feliz Navidad to you all.

"Be well, friends."

Amen and best wishes to all. Merry Christmas, happy Chanukah, happy holidays to one and all. Enjoy the time of celebration, togetherness and reflection.

Merry Christmas to those of you who believe in that sort of thing, and Merry Christmas to all of our Jewish (or Judaizing) friends.

Posted by: David Cohen at December 25, 2005 10:20 PM

And God bless us, every one!

Posted by: Tiny Tim at December 26, 2005 12:58 AM

As always, "Merry Christmas" should, of course, by "Happy Chanukah."

Posted by: David Cohen at December 26, 2005 11:35 PM

Belated blessings to our generous host and all the brotherhood. May God bless you and those you love.
