Okay, that's the tree up, her indoors will be pleased
Good dope today...it took me easy a full minute to realise that was not two photos - one of a burning tree in a forest glade and the other of a car parked in a driveway and stop wondering what was funny about it :mad:

Poem? Here's one:

T'was the night before Christmas, he lived all alone in a one bedroom house, made of plaster and stone.

I had come down the chimney with presents to give, and to see just who in this home did live.

I looked all about, a strange sight I did see: no tinsel, no presents, not even a tree.

No stocking by the mantle, just boots filled with sand; on the wall hung pictures of far distant lands.

With medals and badges, awards of all kinds, a sober thought came through my mind.

For this house was different, it was dark and dreary. I found the home of a soldier, at once I could see clearly.

The soldier lay sleeping; silent, alone, curled up on the floor, in this one bedroom home. Not how I pictured a US soldier.

Was this the hero of whom I'd just read, curled up on a poncho, the floor for a bed?

I realized the families that I saw this night, owed their lives to these soldiers who were willing to fight.

Soon 'round the world, the children would play and grownups would celebrate a bright Christmas Day.

They all enjoyed freedom, each month of the year, because of the soldiers like the one lying here.

I couldn't help wonder how many lay alone on a cold Christmas Eve in a land far from home.

The very thought brought a tear to my eye; I dropped to my knees and started to cry.

The soldier awakened and I heard a rough voice, "Santa, don't cry. This life is my choice.

I fight for freedom, I don't ask for more; my life is my God, my country, my corps."

The soldier rolled over and drifted to sleep; I couldn't control it, I continued to weep.

I kept watch for hours, so silent and still, and we both shivered from the cold night's chill.

I didn't want to leave on that cold, dark night, this guardian of honor, so willing to fight.

Then the soldier rolled over, with a voice soft and pure, whispered, "Carry on Santa, it's Christmas Day, all is secure."

One look at my watch and I knew he was right, "Merry Christmas my friend, and to all a good night."

As is my tradition at Christmas. I know he’s not leader anymore but still relevant.
 

Ethnic minorities could be prioritised for Covid-19 tests in Tier Three areas under Number 10's plans to thwart the disease after England's lockdown​


Great, as they often cited as struggle to maintain social distance

I wholeheartedly support this initiative.

I want to know if it works and what side effects there are before they give it to me.

This is one area where they can be a special case and have priority.

I'm pretty sure you inflict that on us every year - to the point where it's almost become an ARRSE Christmas tradition



You git.
