My favourite Christmas Movies
White Christmas – Bing Crosby
Now this brings back memories of when I was tiny and there was a choice between two channels on our TV and they would show a Christmas film, either a James Bond or White Christmas… or The Wizard of Oz come to think of it.

Hollis Shiloh with her story The Christmas Mansion
In a world of gas lighting and horse-drawn carriages, Rex is fixing up an old mansion to host a Christmas party for his wealthy family's business. He meets a gentle, insecure magician named Gene, who's come to work on the crumbling mansion's moldings. He doesn't expect to fall in love.
Hollis Shiloh's Special Christmas Memory
For me, Christmas is a bright spot at a dark time of year, a reminder of family and sharing, light and music, caring and hope. I love Christmas stories because they're almost always filled with reflection and happiness. I also like snow, frosted windows, the smell of pine, and Christmas carols.

Mr RJ's Crap Joke Section
Good Evening everyone. Hope you are all having a great Friday. Mrs RJ and myself have been very busy this afternoon with the release of Texas 5 and I'm now writing this with just under an hour to go before this post goes live. Mrs RJ has gone to bed (she's not feeling too good and seems like she has a bad cold). Looks like I'll be getting Man Flu anytime soon :). I'm yawning away but on the TV, to keep me company, is the Graham Norton show with his guests Jamie Oliver, Ben Stiller and Martin Freeman. More comedy for a Friday night!
I'll start you with two jokes I was quite impressed with. The first was on the Radio this morning from an 8 year old. Very clever 🙂
Did you hear about the magic tractor?
It went down the lane and turned into a field.
the second on TV last night
Why did the pie goto the Dentist?
To get a filling
Boom Boom :).
To finish I present to you a selection of the jokes left in the comments with thanks to the contributors :-
from Nancy :-
How do you scare a snowman?

Why did the cactus cross the road?
It was stuck to the chicken's back.
Why did the duck cross the road?
It was the chicken's day off.
What do you get when you cross a snowman with a vampire?
What do you call a cat on the beach at Christmas.
