Man gets thrown off American Airlines flight for protesting Christmas greetings...

The longer I live, the more I think many people are just plain nuts.  I read an article this morning about a guy who was kicked off an American Airlines flight out of La Guardia Airport because he protested flight attendants and other staff members wishing him a Merry Christmas.  The man, who was evidently traveling by himself, first yelled at the ticket agent who cheerily said Merry Christmas, reminding her that not everyone celebrates Christmas.  Then, when he got on the aircraft, another unfortunate soul offered the same greeting and the guy apparently went ballistic.  He was escorted off the plane to a chorus of cheers from the other passengers.

I know air travel is stressful.  I know not everyone is Christian.  I know that the holidays are very depressing for a lot of people.  But jeez!  Talk about a waste of time and money!  On the other hand, once again, I'm writing about non news.

Bill and I woke up to a lovely winter scene.  We got snow last night and it was enough to lightly cover everything.  The sun is now out, so it may be gone by tonight. is calling for 3-5 inches for tomorrow.  Nothing like a white Boxing Day, right?  In all seriousness, I'm happy to see snow again, even though we saw it in Virginia last month.  I've spent the last five years in very southern states where snow is a rarity.

The view in our yard when I woke up...

Today is another major holiday in Germany, so we probably won't do anything.  Maybe we'll find a restaurant or something.  I'm still not dressed, though.  If I could, I'd live in my nightie.
