My annual Christmas Open house is today from 2 p.m. till the last person leaves.

The rules are: turn up any time, stay as long as you want, leave any time. The party end when the last person leaves.

There is a VERY limited amount of beer and some booze but there is Lasagna, Ham, braciole, wings, sauce, meatballs, some sausage, deserts etc etc etc.

The only beer is a sixpack of Wachusett Country Ale (even though they aren’t advertising with me HINT HINT) so if you have a favorite you might want to bring it.

One note, due to today’s show I’ll be leaving around 8:15 p.m. to go to the studio, do the show and then come back, likely around 11:15 or so.

Remember the party ends when the last person leaves, the latest its gone is 2 a.m. and the earliest 10:45 but since DaScienceGuy will be in the car the last guest will be here till 11:15 at least.

There will be game systems set up in two rooms and many types of board games to choose from Apples to apples to Cave Troll to the munchkin games to chess.

So eat drink and be Merry and celebrate the 8th day of Christmas with us!

And if you want to know what to bring:

  • Your favorite Booze or beer in case we don’t have it (we have vodka, stoli, Rum and raspberry stoli, a little Lambrusco and some Chivas)
  • Ice
  • Or any dish you wish if you wish.

but mainly bring yourself.

And not to be a party popper but don’t be bringing drugs, if you do we will kick you out and call the cops on you.  And if you are under age I don’t care if your 21st birthday is tomorrow don’t even think of touching a drop of booze here or you will be kicked out and the cops called on you.

If you were busy having a life with family and / or friends on Christmas day like most people then you may have missed our excellent Christmas show.

But no worries, thanks to the miracle of uploading the file show 6 with the Curt Jester, Damian Thompson and James Marley is available online right here.

And of course it will be available in the archive on the side as long as the blog is here.

Over at the other McCain the Christmas Present of the day has been given, a post from Smitty.

Remember when the Christmas bills come and that sweater looks a little odd, think of a soft-spoken man 12,000 miles from home who is spending his Christmas serving his country and his friends and the hundreds of thousands just like him, and give thanks.

For the only time so far we have taped our show, but we do have an original DaTechGuy on DaRadio episode.

Our Christmas Special has three Guests, from England Damian Thompson who writes the Holy Smoke column for the London Telegraph, The incredible Curt Jester and Poet, Polymath and Theology Scholar James Marley discuss Christ in Christmas and the Church and the Media.

So when 9 p.m. comes and Christmas dinner has been eaten and all the gifts are opened tune into WCRN 830 AM and give us a listen.
