    Well, now… that IS a fine show, Eppy: lots of good tunes (Speed Skating was an inspired inclusion), a strong (and somewhat surprising) upbeat vibe and a full exploration of the many facets of the season, from pensive prayer to unbridled misanthropy! I enjoyed it immensely!

    Thank you again for including me in your holiday celebration, and with my very best wishes for 2009,

    SJ
