    By suggestion... The holiday season is upon us. You know, Thanksgiving, the solstice, Chanukah, Christmas, and that season that brought us all to Oakland every year, New Year's... Got plans? Got strong feelings about the season? Tell all!

    always a welcome tale!
    Here in the lovely Bay Area, they're lighting the Bill Graham menorah in Union Square, the Christmas tree's up at the Fillmore, and it's mere weeks until the Dead and Co. shows.

As is our custom, my wife and I ignored the family on this day and drove around to the usual places rounding up the usual suspects (under bridges, the woods. the downtown places where the homeless are known to hang) and picked up the flotsam and jetsam of our society. We took them home and offered a shower. When everybody was clean as they wanted to be and medicated as they wanted to be we set the table and offered them a feast. We listened to a variety of tunes and played games and had the football game on (w/o sound) and generally had a great time, making a lot of new friends. We let people sleep over and sleep in and took them back to wherever they wanted to be a few at a time, giving each a bottle of wine if it wasn't against their meds, if this is what they truly wanted, to save them from panhandling for a few hours. We only do it a couple of times a year and know it is not the answer to their problems. But it is a break from the brutal cold and hard streets for 24 hours. and, truth be told, I much prefer it to the company of my family. To anybody thinking of doing this, be careful. The homeless are homeless for a reason and you never really know who could be violent, etc., etc.. Use good judgement. It always works out for us, we've never had a problem...

Where-ever he goes, all the people complained! St. Stephen's Day, or the Feast of St. Stephen, is a Christian saint's day celebrated on 26 December in the Western Church and 27 December in the Eastern Church. Many Eastern Orthodox churches adhere to the Julian calendar and mark St. Stephen's Day on 27 December according to that calendar, which places it on 9 January of the Gregorian calendar used in secular contexts. It commemorates St Stephen, the first Christian martyr or protomartyr. It is an official public holiday in Austria, Balearic Islands, Catalonia, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Montenegro, Norway, Romania, Serbia, Sweden and Poland (under Polonised name of Sw. Szczepan as opposed to original "Stefan").
