Christmas on Be Bop Wino

Looking north from Queen's Park, Glasgow, December 2010
Once again the annual state of festive disorganization on the part of your humble blog host has brought actual posting to a grinding halt. So there now appears the usual Christmas stream-of -consciousness panic post.

Winter sun, Queen's Park, Glasgow, December 2010

Be Bop Wino and friend
Glasgow, the home city of Be Bop Wino, currently resembles a frozen Arctic wasteland. The snow arrived a few weeks ago and temperatures have sunk to around minus ten which makes for the coldest December I can remember. I've put up a few pictures taken in the South Side's Queen's Park when the snow first arrived. It looks very Christmassy indeed.

At this time I like to repost Joan's great collection of Christmas doo wop. If you haven't already got it then here is the link:

And let's all listen to my favourite vocal group Christmas record:

Thanks to Joan for sound and sight

Merry Christmas everybody! May you enjoy a peaceful Yuletide.
