There's a few hours to go for us yet, but we've so much to do there'll be no chance to check in later so I'll say it now - wishing everyone here on Brass Goggles a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy and steam-powered 2020  Cheesy.

Festive wishes,
Miranda.

As it is said:
I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight—

Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Well, I had a lovely time at my brother's - was fed extremely well, met my new great-nephew, and went on my merry way home. I was breathalyzed on the way home! Just as well I am my own designated driver!!

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

It's my version of "Romeritos, " a traditional Mexican Christmas dish made with seepweed sprigs, fried shrimp cakes, potatoes and Mole Poblano (a savoury curry-like chocolate, pumpkin seed and Chile pepper based sauce).

I substitute seepweed for collared greens and the shrimp cakes (which involve whole unpeeled shrimp) I substitute with fried crab cakes. Not only are those two ingredients hard to find (maybe an Asian market), but I find that you spend too much time "chewing the cud" so I made the substitution.

Thank you - now, what is seepweed? Or are you using seaweed?

It's not seaweed, but in northwestern Europe the closest relative is Suaeda marítima, a coastal plant that thrives on salty soil.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suaeda

The Mexican version is Suaeda pulvinata which is semi-acquatic and grows on the shores of lakes, notably Lake Texcoco in Mexico City. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suaeda_pulvinata

Well, "Cool Yule" isn't happening! Health heat warning for the whole of Victoria this weekend, and rolling into Monday - horrible!

Thank you, Miss Cora! Christmas was merry, and I got breathalysed on the way home! (zero reading, by the way!)
Now I am hoping for a quiet and peaceful New Year's eve and day. Not likely to get it, but ...!

Everyone please have a Happy and safe New Year, with loads of peace and prosperity dropping gently on you all in 2020.
We are out of the 20teens now - maybe the peoples of the world will grow some maturity! At least we have HOPE - Pandora left us that!

Miss Cora, your wishes are greatly appreciated!

It is only supposed to be 37°C today, with a slight chance of a few drops of rain - tomorrow, 37°C, a slightly more bearable 32°C with 40% chance of a little rain on Tuesday, 32°C for New Year's Day - then the upward climb begins again heading towards low to mid 40s°C next weekend, with chances of dry storms and lightning strikes - just exactly what we don't want!
