Re: Nollaig Chridheil agus Bliadhna Mhath Ur

To the Sinclair List
	Well put!!!! In case anyone deleted too quickly, I wish they would take
time to read this wonderful message. Our past is a wonderful heritage,
but our future is in the love and values we hold dear and hopefully give
to our next generations. At this very moment I am alone minding the
turkey while my family are out visiting  for an hour.  But, I have never
been so not alone, the light is on in the manger and candles are lit and
I have time to think about the one reason for celebrating, and my family
who have passed on, and how thankful I am for my family who are here
with me today and my extended family who are with me in heart and
	Happy Holidays to everyone, may the spirit live on throughout the New
year. Good luck to all the researchers hoping to achieve that
breakthrough the next time.
