Merry Christmas and heartfelt thanks for all the great stocking stuffers (wonderful TOP posts) all year!

Back atcha Mike. Thanks for the offer of snow, but we've gotten 15" of the stuff dropped here on the Swamp since last Friday. Only the Jeep got in and out of the sub for a couple of days.

On the bright side the grandkids will be here tomorrow a.m. for opening packages and the D300 is fully charged.

Thanks for the effort you put into the site, Mike - it's a "must read" for me each day and (while much of the tech talk is over my head) I generally leave knowing a little more than when I came in.

Take care.

Please accept with no obligation, implied or
implicit, my very best wishes for an
environmentally conscious, socially responsible,
low stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral
celebration of the winter solstice holiday,
practiced within the most enjoyable traditions
of the religious persuasion or secular practices
of your choice, with full respect for the
religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions
of others, or their choice not to practice
religious or secular traditions at all;

Enjoy a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling,
and medically uncomplicated recognition of the
onset of the generally accepted calendar year, but
not without due respect for the calendars of choice
of other cultures whose contributions to society
have helped make us great, and without regard to the race, creed,
color, age, physical ability, religious faith,
choice of computer platform or sexual orientation
of the wisher.

Disclaimer: By accepting this greeting, you are
accepting these terms:
This greeting is subject to clarification or
withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no
alteration to the original greeting. It implies
no promise by the wisher to actually implement
any of the wishes for her/himself or others, and
is void where prohibited by law, and is
revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher.
This wish is warranted to perform as expected
within the usual application of good tidings for
a period of one year, or until the issuance of a
subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first,
and warranty is limited to replacement of this
wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole
discretion of the wisher, who assumes no
responsibility for any unintended emotional
stress these greetings may bring to those not
caught up in the holiday spirit.

In short:

Merry Christmas and Boxing Day!

Happy Christmas to you and your family (and to T.O.P. as well)

Merry Christmas Mike and TOP readers !

Two of my regular morning stops on the internet are the Shorpy website of old photos ( http://www.shorpy.com/ ) and "The Online Photographer". This morning when I clicked on your link I thought I was still viewing the Shorpy site that I had just left.

All kidding aside, I think you should submit this photo to Shorpy, it is very appropriate for their website. I am amazed when I view a lot of the old photos from glass negatives at the quality of the images.

Merry Xmas, Mike. This blog is one of the best things I have ever found the web. A perfect way to wake up in the morning (along with a cup of coffee!)


P.S. Don't over do it with the snow digging. That is what teenage kids are for.

Snow? Send some to Tokyo.

Merry Christmas Mike, and thanks for hours of pleasurable and educational reading this year.

Merry Christmas Mike,

Merry Christmas, Chanukah....etc to all of you.


Merry Christmas and especially a Happy New Year to you Mike, and your family...sorry your traveling was disrupted, our end of the country is also experiencing those frustrations. Lukily, we stay home but my sister, up near Portland, has 15 inches of snow at her house and a couple more days of "light snow mist" to contend with. The Big Day will be Saturday this year.

When I read about your snow (and when doesn't Wisconsin get snow in the winter?) I thought of a post I made on my blog about ice, and how that "product" is part of our family's Wisconsin heritage. Here's the link: http://listeningforthunder.blogspot.com/2006/08/ice.html

Makes me want a cup of something warm!

Again, peace be with you in 2009,

Bill Stormont

Happy Holidays to you!

Merry Christmas Mike, bring on those full frame mug's O hot chocolate. GB.

Have a very good Christmas and an excellent New Year Mike.

and thanks for some very good reading this year!

Happy Holidays, Mike. Thanks for giving us the photographer's best daily stop on the Internet.

Merry Christmas, and may 2009 be a sensational year (in a good way) for all.

Snow? What's that?!

A very pleasant 25C, a barbecue and lots of sunscreen for our Christmas.

Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2009 from the land of the long white cloud.

Merry Christmas Mike.
Your blog is one of the few that I keep coming back to. My upcoming new years resolution: try to give back something this year via an Amazon purchase.

Waiting for new TOP posts with bated breath :-)

Meanwhile, here's a another Solstice picture for you to enjoy, different from the two I showed earlier:


no snow down south, we had a nice thick warm Christmas at over 65*

Love the old photo, fired up my D700 and D90 for this weekend, was great fun.
