QUOTE OF THE DAY: I know it's hard for our families -- military families to be separated from a loved one during any time, but in particular, doing the holiday season. And so we ask for God's blessings, not only on our troops who are overseas, but we ask for the Lord's blessings on our family members.

This is -- this whole operation here is cranking out a lot of care packages. So far, 480,000 soldiers overseas have received a care package. (Applause.) And with it, as I said, is a message of goodwill and hope. We're -- this is an historic time we live in. The world is changing. And as it changes, as the world becomes more free, America becomes more secure and the peace we all long for becomes more real.

And so during these holiday seasons, we thank our blessings, and one of the greatest blessings of all is the United States military and their families. Thank you for having us. I look forward to coming by to thank each of you.

Wish I was at Fort Belvoir today!!!

I went to a USO care package stuffing day when the warehouse was at Fort Meade, Md and it was a wonderful experience. When I called to volunteer for the next month, I learned that the operation had been moved to Virginia.

I have been watching the live webcam as they build the platform.

I don't know why....it's really not all that exciting yet! But it will be fun later as they decorate, probably.

Fairly good mum is settling in the home, they had a pantomime for the residents earlier in the week and the local Parish Church did a service today which mum attended. She is eating well and gets on the with staff so I feel is actually happier there than she was latterly at home.

I'm working on it snugs. I saved it as live webcam and I can't figure out how to get the url.

So, I'm emailing it to myself to see if that sends it.

Be back soon...

'...cannot go to bed before I check in...'

Hi snugs! I feel the exact same way....no matter what time and how tired I am...I have to look in on the dose. I think, I'll just take a quick look. But, once I'm on, forget it....not only do I look at the great pics but I also have to read the posts to see how the wonderful 'dose family' is doing.

Good evening, thanks for the pix. I was reading that Monday is when the electoral college casts its votes. We can expect massive outbreaks of PEST from the libs after that.

How old is your mum and what is her main problem? I don't know if Oz is still about but I would suspect micro chipping she is referring to puppies and cats being microchipped as she works at a vets.

Better double-check that workmanship, Mr. President. Beware union goons in these uncertain times.

Actually, that photo adds a sense of finality to this election cycle. I can begin to breath easier.

Christmas plans well dad and I and dad's friend will pick mum up about 11.30am from the home hopefully turkey will nearly be cooked (if I get my act into gear). Then I will get mum to help me with the veg have the meal about 1.00pm, do presents about 2.00pm and take her back to the home between 3.00 and 4.00pm.

What will you have for Christmas dinner we will have Roast Turkey, brussel sprouts, carrots, roast potatoes and roast parsnips with Cranberry Sauce. Then Christmas pudding and cream or custard. Followed by mince pies.

g'day Dolly! Microchipping Day is when the oragnisation I work for offer discount microchip identification for your dog or cat. We were working in an high government welfare area this morning were folks can't afford the higher price to microchip their pets.

It was a fairly successful morning and we only got verbally abused once! LOL. We were told we should be spending taxpayers money in a better way. I politely asked the "gentleman" to make sure that the gate didn't hit him too hard on the way out and to have a Merry Christmas.....Can't win 'em all!

Well I must turn in or I shall waste the morning catching up on my sleep. Good night to you all and God Bless look forward to hearing what you are all doing for Christmas and what you will be eating I do find it fascinating all the different types of food worldwide and all the different ways of cooking the same thing.

God Bless America the symbol of world freedom

Sounds like you and I are having the same Christmas dinner LOL. It's the English blood flowing through our veins!!

Even though our Christmas Day is in the middle of summer my Mum still cooks the traditional dinner - turkey and all the trimmings. Even when the weather is near 100 degrees outside! And she makes her homemade fruit mince pies (with the Robertsons Fruit Mince) as well as trifle (Yum!).

We can get Mr Kiplings Fruit Mince Pies here at this time of the year and they are yummy too.

Finally!!

Here is the url for the Inauguration website and the link to the camera is on that page.

The web cam is down temporarily, but it is a nice clear shot when it is working.

This is the first time it's been down.
