    LOL ... Yup ... Rita we got you trapped now. :D Ronny :rolleyes: ... their never supposed to know that ... Otherwise LWM's full bore cranial brainwashing takes longer to set in. And we have to have our ISA (Internet Safety Army) ready soon, before the next onslaught of CWS. ;) Most importantly, we certainly don't want to scare off any other potential persons. ;)

    Strange...my hands start shaking after a few minutes without Internet access! Makes toilet breaks a bit of a "hit-and-miss" affair too! :D

    I recently was unable to connect to our server and the Internet for two and 1/2 weeks. My husband and I both went through withdrawal. We felt like we were cut off from the world and at first it was an almost panicky feeling. :( I know we are addicted but there are worse things we could be doing. ;)

    I think it a good idea to unplug..especailly around this Holiday Season..get outside to get some fresh air..enjoy yourself..go jogging..meet other interesting people.. get in the Spirit of the Season ;)

    Police called to Santa rumble
    By Daily Mail

    Police called to a mass brawl found an army of Santas punching and kicking each other.

    Officers had to use batons and CS spray to quell the fight in the centre of Newtown, Powys.

    Four were hurt and there were five arrests.

    The battle of the Santas followed a 21/2-mile charity run involving more than 4,000 people dressed as Father Christmas. Some of them are believed to have overindulged in alcohol after crossing the finishing line.

    The fun run is expected to benefit up to 200 charities and it is hoped that it will exceed last year's total raised of £80,000.

    Organisers believe they have broken their own world record for having the most number of Santas in the same place. Last year a mere 3,200 took part.

    PC Gareth Slaymaker, community safety officer for North Powys, said: ' Behaviour like this justifies the reluctance by the police to

    extend the licensing hours for public houses and bars for this type of event'.
