Warmest Wishes...Grant Us Peace..

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Wednesday, December 24, 2008

Well, Hanukkah is in full swing and today is Christmas Eve.

begins in two days and Festivus is being celebrated throughout the world.

To all of you, my most special guests here on The Couch:

Nancy & I

send you a sleigh full of warm wishes,
good health and financial stability for this Holiday season.

May you all have time with loved ones...

May you all stay aware of those on the roads who are not responsible...

May you all return here next week for a few posts to wrap up 2008...

Until then, as has become our custom here on The Couch,
we leave you with our latest Peace Globe
and a mini-concert of music of the season...

See y'all on Monday!

Honestly, there are four or five songs here. I sat at the computer too long and the back is acting up, so I am not even sure who I selected, but I thought it flowed nicely...then my back said ENOUGH!

Listen to as much or as little as you like...I might even throw another mix up tomorrow...

Ah heck...Henry Mancini, His Orchestra & Singers; Tony Bennett w/ The Count Basie Orchestra; Luther Vandross (i think); Shania Twain...

Merry Christmas
