Happy Christmas

When I was a child, a few days before Christmas every year the BBC broadcast Handel's Messiah sung by the Huddersfield Choral Society. It was a family tradition that we listened each year, and here is the chorus "For Unto Us a Child is Born". Enjoy.





What a glorious walk Fern and I had yesterday afternoon. It was a fine day, crisp might describe it well. Not too cold - about 8 or 9 Celsius - but a fairly stiff breeze from the south-west. I drove out beyond Falmer and we walked up across the Downs until we reached the spot where there is a distant view of Seaford Head and the English Channel. Then we described a loop over Balmer Down before heading back down to Falmer. There were typical Downland views of sheep and more sheep and the wind blowing past my ears almost blocked the faint hum of the traffic on the main road. An hour of that certainly blew the cobwebs away!
