Christmas Thanks: I want to express my extreme gratitude to Annie, Stuart and their friends from Velez Malaga who again this year chipped in on a huge Christmas basket they delivered to my workshop Friday. Where they found a vac-bag sealed half a smoked turkey is a mystery?!? The can of chunky style cranberry sauce and the hefty half a cheesecake will likely be the height of my Christmas eating and calorie intake. Well done folks! -Naythan the Hungry / Torrox Costa doctorlaptop At protonmail DoT com
