Wishing you all a very merry Christmas! It’s been a strange December, with the flu bug keeping from many of my usual holiday activities. At least I’ve got the BBC to keep me entertained, with EastEnders, Doctor Who, and Call the Midwife. Even though I’m in San Francisco, my television schedule is taking me to London, especially the East End. It seems appropriate to post a photo of my uncle in his home in Spitalfields. He passed away two days after Christmas the same year this was taken, so my thoughts are always with him at this time. He kept Christmas well, and his spirit continues to brighten my holiday.
