My favourite Christmas Music 2nd of 10
I recall sitting in my previous boyfriend's kitchen and listening to Radio 1 and a interview with Midge Ure and Bob Geldof. Thet talked about this charity song and how they hoped it sold well enough to send some money to Africa. The rest, as they say, is history.
This is by far the best version of this song, and any other *Aid* songs that followed… Sting, Bono, Phil Collins, Simon Le Bon, … amazing line up and somewhat controversial lines… When Bono sings *thank god it's them instead of you*… amazing, and so powerful.
This song sends shivers down my spine.
I remember owning a copy of that newspaper with the pictures of them all.

JC's Special Christmas Memory
One of my best Christmas memories centers on what happened after going to bed on Christmas Eve. My brother and sister and I would whisper to one another about hearing something on the roof or sleigh bells or someone downstairs. The excitement of waiting for Santa to come was just as exciting as seeing the gifts below the tree.

Mr RJ's Crap Joke Section
I will be honest. When I first started this section (well got permission from RJ), I didn't expect it to last for very long. Not only has it lasted, but people viewing have enjoyed reading the bad jokes I have been posting. Only five more days to go for this section but I now have a loyal following who post jokes in the comments for me. Here are a few from Sharon S.
