*********************************
This is the time of the year when, regardless how busy and hectic our seasonal preparations, we take the time to reflect on the sentiments of the Christmas season and think thoughts of goodwill to others. In particular, we think warmly of those closest to us and those who have been especially kind over the past year.

In that spirit I'd like to extend warmest wishes and heartfelt thanks to all those who have been helping me ensure Nash Holos remains on the air and online, and continues to bring joy and good cheer to more listeners each week. These include those involved in producing and promoting the program as well as those supporting it and participating in the fun! (That last one is a tough job but someone's got to do it!)

There are many to thank and apologies in advance if I 've missed anyone.
