The last post I will write for 2020 is here.
Christmas has been and gone for 2020 and it went off with fizzle no bang here. I have not been able to get into the festive mood this year. I was late getting decorations up and slack with my Christmas cards. I did manage to send out around 50 something cards.
Christmas Day was different instead of Jess & Leo coming here and open presents, Tim & I went over to here house a whole 25 metres or 82 feet away. I rode the scooter over and Tasha walked over, so it was noisy when Kathy rang and I felt that Kathy sounded a tad left out.
After presents opened Tim got ready for work and I got dressed to go over to Mum's for lunch. My brother Dave picked me up and drove me to Mum's.
There was a good turn up with Dave & Leigh with their girls as well as Sandy & Ed and their girls along with Sue & Les (her man), Dawson and of course Mun and me.
Lunch was alright just not the same, after lunch Sandy drove me home.
Boxing Day was held here and all 3 daughters and 4 grandchildren along with Kathy's fiance Michael. Tim bought KFC for lunch and Kathy made a potato bake. I bought a lemon meringue roulade for desert and Kathy had to say she doesn't like lemon meringue oh well I love it.
Not many photos taken because I am unable to take them.
It is a good thing that we don't do anything for NYE as so much is cancelled.

Another Monday, more facts as the year draws to a close.
No Christmas is complete if you and your kids don’t wear adorable Christmas sweaters. But did you know that a large part of the world has contests like the ‘best Christmas sweater competition’? When kids wear cute Christmas sweaters, they look adorable and they make beautiful memories to cherish forever.
Did you know that Santa does not simply ignore the children who have been bad throughout the year? He puts pieces of coal into the child’s stocking instead of gifts! This tradition started in Italy. Yet another important reason for children to be good through the year and do as many good deeds as they can!
One of the most fun rituals of Christmas is the exchange of Christmas cards. You can ask your child to make your own cards with embellishments of his choice. By giving Christmas cards, they can convey their feelings to the person they like and wish them well.
he traditional Christmas meal in England before turkey became the obvious choice of food for the holidays was a pig’s head covered with mustard.

Hello everyone here I am at another Tuesday and that means it is indestructible stuff day and this week it is Graphene which is a natural wonder material that's all around us.
Like diamond, graphene is made of the element carbon but it's a different shape. It is made of incredibly thin layers about one-millionth of the width of a human hair. Because it is only one single atom thick. It is so thin that scientist have only been able to study it close up since 2004.
It can be used to make ultra light weight aircraft, sports gear and armour or body parts. It could make fold-able or wearable computers, electronic paper or super thin tablets.
It could work like a multi functional, lightweight, electronic, natural biodegradable plastic.
However, so far it is proving very difficult to produce and work with so these things are not around just yet.
Graphene is the strongest material ever discovered, it's abput 200 times stronger then steel.
It is used to create the world's lightest material graphene aerogel
It conducts electricity better than any other material
It's tougher then diamond
It's bendy and stretchy too.

Daddy's Little Angel
© Jason A. HodgesWhen you were born, you filled my heart with pride,
And I was overcome by the joy I felt inside.
As I held you in my arms that very first day,
I knew I would never let any harm come your way.
With your tiny little hands and tiny little feet,
Every time I look at you, my heart skips a beat.
As I watch you sleep in the middle of the night,
I hope and pray I will do everything right.
I know I may make some mistakes along the way,
But I promise to do my best not to every single day.
I often wonder what you will grow up to be,
But whatever you become will be fine with me.
So whatever you may decide to do in your life,
Maybe an astronaut, a lawyer, or even a doctor's wife,
I can say this without any doubt at all,
I will always be there to catch you if you fall.
And another promise I make to you from me,
Daddy's little angel you will always be.

Another Tuesday has arrived and more indestructible stuff today's stuff is Titanium
It is used in artificial body part it will likely contain titanium this incredible metal combines three brilliantly useful qualities meaning it's strong, it's light and resistant to corrosion which means it doesn't break, dissolve or wear away easily.
These properties make it very useful in the modern world and can be found in planes engines and spacecraft parts things that need to get on and off the ground without falling apart. It's used to make underwater tools used by divers, as well as in jewellery, lightweight camping gear top quality horseshoes and much much more.
Some of the best prosthetic legs are made of titanium so they can take weight without being to heavy. Hips are also made of titanium

When Jesus was born, a bright star shone in the sky. Three kings followed this star and made a long journey to the birthplace of Jesus. They bore with them gifts of gold, frankincense (aromatic resin used in incense and perfumes), and oils
Have you ever wondered why people go door to door singing carols? The tradition is based on the English custom of wassailing, which was a tradition to toast to someone’s good health and fortune. St. Francis of Assisi took this tradition and converted it to the modern form of carolling.
The Christmas wreath is representative of the crown of thorns that Jesus wore. Eventually, the colours of Christmas – red, green, and gold were added. Red is said to represent the blood of Jesus, green is supposed to symbolize life, and gold stands for royalty and light. And the evergreen foliage used to make Christmas wreaths symbolises the continuity of life and nature even in the darkest days of winters.

Hello Monday the first Monday of December being December I am doing some Christmas posts so here are some Christmas facts.
Santa Claus initially wore clothes that were in green, purple, or blue. For many years, this was the common theme for the jolly old man at the North Pole. However, Coca Cola decided to dress him up in colours that match their brand and that stuck. So this is why he is always in red clothes now!

Well here we are at another indestructible stuff day and today it is Gold something every man and his dog has heard of.
Gold is quite rare and that's because it is very heavy, when the earth was forming most of the gold sank down towards the middle of the planet pulled by gravity.
Gold isn't as indestructible as many other metals, it's quite soft and melts easy. However, it has another indestructible quality it's very pure and unreactive.
It rarely reacts with other metals or chemicals and that means it doesn't rust, dissolve or wear out.
Gold coins can and have been recovered intact from ancient shipwreck, gold jewellery will last a life time as gold nuggets can lie in the soil or on a riverbed for centuries.
This is why gold has been used as money for centuries.
