    How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Jim Carey is painfully funny.

    Oh, of course It's A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story are both compulsory holiday viewing! Another funny one is Elf. Will Ferrell is so perfectly suited for that role - such inspired casting.

When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Interesting choices for Christmas watching. For me I get to celebrate on the 6th January.....but on Christmas day I usually watch *Enemy at the Gate* despite the attempt to distort a lot of the truth about Stalingrad, it does attempt A LITTLE to portray the spirit of the Russian people to overcome the evil and brutality inflicted by the Nazis and the will of a people to never let the barbarians win. Like Leningrad, Stalingrad, the films in Russian and English, show the will and strength of people to overcome this monster of mob mentality that engulfed Europe and those who fought back and often perished, so many of us today are allowed a voice.

    For me, at this time of indulgence , it is a good time to remember what sacrifices were made by so many to fight the Nazi monster and the millions who supported it (and indulged as they slaughtered Europe and whole peoples).

    Rapid double left-click in the field of the fire for full screen if the video appears truncated. Turn on your sound for full effect.

    Default a world without wires

    wouldn't it be cool if there was a world of electronics without wires. And they all worked like through a bluetooth coonection. And if one device did not recognise another device then u can manually input the number of that device to kick start it. The system would probably needs billions to start up such a thing but it will be definately evolve the electronics world. I have business acumen.
