    A case for the nexus 7, a new mouse for the PC, a cycle helmet and an awesome framed canvas of my wee lad. :)

    He was spoiled rotten and loved it, I got him a load of noisy toys for some reason though. :/

    I bought Mrs Presidente a Nexus 7, a case for it and a calender with pics of huskies (I do the same every year).

    DURX, what kind of wine are you making? Are you using kits?

    Sounds great! Are you able to pick up some kits of grape juice to try your hand at wine?

    I've had a go at making kit wine before. I've been making it with fruit though since... takes longer, but worth it :)

    I got in to it through some brewers on my street. Been brewing my own wine for 8 or 9 months and kit beer (bitter, larger and mild) for about 6 or 7. Really easy to do... chuck all the sugar and yeast in the brew bin and leave it for a couple if weeks, transfer in to another container and leave for another 2-3 weeks :)

    The first time is the most expensive... have to buy the extra stuff (brew bin, etc). Works out at 30/40 pence a pint after though :D

    Edit - you get 40 pints in the kits I've been making

    So far I've received eight apples "Apple for the teacher", two large packets of green tea, a box of "American Flavor" instant coffee sachets imported from Ulan Bator, Republic of Mongolia, and a large bottle of Caoyuan Beijiu.

    Now that's something I've not seen in a while, and we have heck of a lot of bicycles here.

    I got a nice thick & warm coat from Old Navy, the wife bought me and I got her a pair of earrings. She really like jewelry.

    I spent most of Christmas eve with the youngest grandson (3 yrs. old) and did he give me the run around!

    The grandkids got all the kool stuff!

    What'd you have at the buffet?
    How's that Note 2 working out for you? Looks like that forum is blowing up with some new users. :)
