Thanks for the daily tid-bit Recidivist. Now who in heck came up with the idea that 100 year old midgets are the ones that build and assemble the toys?

everyone in the hockey world would tell, druken is capable, he's just chosen to throw it all away.

same thing applies to you. you can believe anything you want, but it doesn't make it so.
Your right Frankie he's one of those Alberta Seperatists and a card carrying Ralph Klein supporter

Back in the day we would just call him the Pollack and that would be the end of it, can't do that in the Politically correct times we live in today.

Since you asked:

In the pagan times of Scandinavia, people believed that house gnomes guarded their homes against evil. Although these gnomes mostly were benevolent, they quickly could turn nasty when not properly treated, so it is told. Throughout the centuries, they were either loved or loathed. Some people even believed them to be trolls and cannibals. The perception of gnomes largely depended on whether a person was naughty, or nice.

When Christmas became popular again as a festive season in the middle-1800s, Scandinavian writers such as Thile, Toplius, Rydberg sketched the gnomes' true role in modern life: fairies that are somewhat mischievous, but the true friends and helpers of Father Christmas (Santa Claus). They are the Christmas elves. Artists such as Hansen and Nyström completed the picture of elves for us.

Since you implicitly asked:

Father Time is a mythical personification of time. He is usually depicted as an elderly bearded man, dressed in a robe, carrying an hourglass or other timekeeping device (representing time's constant movement) and a scythe (linking time's passage with the inevitability of death). This image is culled from several sources, including the Holly King, the Celtic god of the dying year, and Chronos, the Greek god of time.

You're right Frankie, we can just disregard his last 5 years and pretend he's this great 30 goal scorer in the NHL.

Feel better?

Most of us expats are from the Country Formally known as Canada.

Sorry, to say I never did get out to PEI, NWT, Nunavet or NFLD&LAB.

We've left the borders open ...

i think everyone here is talking over your head. you're simply not understanding.

either that or you're arguing just for the sake of it.

i never ever said he was this great 30 goal scorer in the nhl. i just said he has the talent and is capable of it. that's all.

You're on the nose.

I had to footnote so darn extensively in my academic years that I get sloppy now and then in retirement.

Thanks for keeping me honest.
