    I might be in the minority here, I don't like Christmas cake much at all. Or those horrible little fruit pies.

    No, you aren't "entitled" to it. Too damn bad, Get it the way I did.

    SWMBO put me on a fruit diet seeing as I had put on a couple of Kilo's over the holidays. So I have a coffee and a couple of FRUIT MINCE PIES for morning, afternoon and evening tea.. I love them.

    Before Xmas, I did spot fruit cake being sold in Pak n Save but I walked straight past it and bought a Xmas baked fruit pudding. I put brandy laced cream over it.

    I used to help Mum make the Xmas cake for a number of years when she was young and enthusiastic about the family Christmas in Northern Rhodesia, we assembled the whole thing, with the fruit mix and brandy and of course the lovely marzipan and icing:

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche
