Christmas Cookies and Cannons
We had a White Christmas for the first time in many years. We all enjoyed a great feast of turkey, ham, veggies, and a tray of homemade Christmas cookies. Not as many people as we had at Thanksgving but those who could came by and we had 10 or 11 for dinner both Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Some of the boys shot 'flaming snowballs' out of the 'cannon' after dinner and in the dark. I gave my nephews a copy of 'One Crazy Ride' and I got to watch this DVD which is the 2nd movie by the Indian Adventure rider and film maker Gaurav Jani and Dirt Track Productions http://www.dirttrackproductions.com/. My radio related gift was a copy of F.A. Wilsons book "An Introduction to the Electromagnetic Wave" which is available used for about $5 and is a good treatment of how radio waves are propagated with out 'too much' math.
