Merry Christmas Don,

I don't remember how I first came across your site, doubtless a link from some closely related site. I think I first reacted to your confidence. You seemed to take a firm step in your writing, and I thought that was better that wading gently in.

Not long after this I realized that though you thought yourself funny, and were sometimes right, the real thing I was reading for was the posts where you were more introspective and serious. I have now come to the conclusion that you are a thoughtful and caring person, and that is what I like most when reading your site. I may just be full of it about this perception, but it is what I think.

You gave us a start at the beginning of the holiday season when you declared that you were done with your site, and I was glad it was short lived.

Keep the funny and the serious coming, and I'm sure all other problems (financial, romantic, whatever) will work themselves out.

I wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
