Memories of Christmas

Here are some photos of Christmas 2011. To protect the privacy of family, they are simply photographic evidence of Christmas Day. I think they are powerful.

Plenty of people at my parents' house. Santa stands guard at the door:

So many coats! The iconic Tilley hat belongs to my uncle, though my father has one as well.

These ornaments were given to my mother in the early 1960s. They may go back into the 1950s. I remember some of them very well from my childhood.

Ergonomists Unite!

I bought my MacBookPro in 2008 and generally am a big fan. However, I don't like the ergonomics of laptops.

I saw a recent tweet that mentioned a 'Rain stand'; lustfully, I bought one as part of a whole new landscape for the desktop.

It is much too early to report how well this will work, as the setup includes a new mouse and keyboard. So far, so good.

Interestingly, the keyboard is impossibly thin. It is tiny!
