Those who know me know I like trees. Wired has a piece on the oldest trees on the planet that is both beautiful and awe-inspiring.

This morning we put up the Christmas tre in our living room. I should say
that my wife and daughter put up the tree. I think I added a total of two
decorations. I did plug in the lights and use my amazing height powers to
put a star right the top of the tree.

It looks pretty damn good. My daughter, Rowan, is delighted with the
build-up to Christmas, particularly the lights and decorations on the main
shopping street and the Christmas tree advent calendar she's got that has
something nice to eat behind each day. Every morning now she heads straight
for the calendar and opens the next drawer.

While I didn't contribute much to the ritual of the Christmas tree
decorating, I did get all mechanical this morning on the car's ass. To be
precise, I changed a blown bulb in the right brake light. Total cost €1.50
and about 25 minutes of swearing at machine tightened hexagonal nuts.

I don't often do anything remotely mechanical with the car and related
repairs so I was pleased with myself and ate the last chocolate chip cookie
from the batch I made recently. Now I have another thing to do: make more
cookies!
