A Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night

December 24, 2005 | Category: In My Life

As we exited church this evening, the light drizzling rain had begun to fall in earnest.

"Oh," I sighed. "I wonder if Santa can deliver in the rain..."

"Hmmm," CD agreed. "Do you think he can switch the sleigh skids into wheels? How can the reindeer pull without snow?"

"No," Bear corrected us with a long-suffering expression. "Rein-deer. Get it? REIN-deer! The first part of their name is 'REIN' so I think they can handle it. OK?"

Well, he had us there.

Then, to prove that homonyms notwithstanding he really does know his letters, Bear proceeded to spell out the next sign he saw.... "N-E-X-T-E-L" So it is with a glow in our hearts that we will always remember this as the year Bear learned to read cell-phone advertising.


Although I have had to temporarily hide away all my corporate posts, I have added the Holiday email I sent out to my teams in the extended portion of this email. And I mean it all very sincerely - may your and yours be blessed this sacred season.

And to all, a good night.

As this year closes, I wanted to take a moment to thank you. The projects we push for Mega and our customers are like that old song about the bones being connected, one to the other - they are delivered because so many work so hard on each vital piece. We are successful working together, each to their part.

Thank you for being one of those connections in 2005.

Whatever holidays you break to observe in the wintry days and weeks ahead, I wish you joy of them. And whatever challenges you face ahead in 2006, I wish you success of them. And for whatever worth may be put upon it, know I count myself lucky to have been on the same team as you here at Mega.

"We will not be put off the final goal
We have it hidden in us to attain.
