Charlie Brown finds himself depressed at Christmas time,searching for the true meaning of the holiday amidst the glitz and commercialism of the modern age. He finds his answer in the passge below:
"And there were in the same country shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them! And they were sore afraid... And the angel said unto them, "Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all my people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."
"And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger." and suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, "Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth peace, and good will toward men."
"That's what christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."

Mr. Mathers, What Were Your Whereabouts On The Night Of December 12th?
I found this article and just HAD to share it with you folks.
I hear they have Eminem in for questioning.
BOSTON (AP) - Techno artist Moby was attacked by two men while signing autographs outside a nightclub following a radio station-sponsored holiday concert, police said.
According to police and witnesses, Moby, whose real name is Richard M. Melville, was approached by the men about 1 a.m. Thursday outside the Paradise Rock Club. One of the men punched Moby in the back of the head and on the right side of his face, breaking the singer's glasses and cutting and bruising his face.
When two club security guards tried to stop the attack, the assailants sprayed a mace-like substance at Moby, Moby's manager and the guards, and then fled, police said.
Moby, 37, declined medical attention.
The assailants said nothing during the attack, and the motive is unknown, said Paradise manager Jeff Marshall.
During the concert, Moby, a self-described pacifist, had spoken out against aggression and violence.
He wrote on his Web site that he is not angry about the attack, just mystified about the motive. He has asked the attackers to post an explanation.
Moby is electronic music's first bona fide superstar. His 1999 album "Play" sold 10 million copies. For the past two years, the Connecticut native has headlined a touring festival that has featured guests such as David Bowie.

Where Did The Time Go?
Hello and happy holidaze!
A big, major apology to all the Potch's Place faithfull as I have been a bit of an absentee landlord lately, and since I have recruited no side writers (as my good buddies Roughy at UE and Rusty ar RD have), you have had NOTHING but archives to read for almost a MONTH now.
I swear I will do my best NEVER to let this happen again.
A little update on Potch and his lovely bride.
Last we spoke...
Okay, last I spoke, my computer had crashed.
This has been rectified with the purchase of a new hard drive (60 Gig, BABY!) and jacked up my RAM from 128 to 256. Now that baby purrs like a kitten!
Sadly, in doing so, I was only able to transfer the ABSOLUTE essentials from the old HD, and haven't had a chance to retrieve anything else since, so I had to just download EVERYTHING... AGAIN...
The reason I haven't been on has nothing to do with this though.
The computer was fixed the day after my last post.
