A sincere Merry Christmas!

He Is Born

"I bring you tidings of great joy that will be for all people; for unto you this day, in the city of David, a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord."

And out of darkness ...

On This Glorious Christmas Day ...

... it would do us well to remember those who make it possible for us to worship freely and rejoice without fear of reprisal:

" ... that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion ..."

Enjoy the day.

Pulaski Hits The Big Time

When you get a shout-out from Glenn Reynolds, the blog daddy of them all, you have indeed hit the big time. Glenn (Instapundit to those of us who know him and love him) makes mention this morning of a McDonald's over in Pulaski with a rather unique approach to customer service.

Glenn, with your permission, I've reproduced your photo (and caption) to let all the local folks see what they are missing if they're not down at Micky D's at breakfast time:

Pulaski, Virginia. The Comfy-Chair Revolution comes to McDonald’s. Love the fireplace. There’s free wi-fi, too!
Kinda reminds me of the lobby of the Hampton Inn. At McDonald's! What next?

I'm guessing, by the way, that this is an effort on the part of some shrewd marketing guru at McDonald's to capitalize on the fact that McDonald's is now America's go-to place when it comes to the finest coffee on the planet. What could be better than great coffee and a warm, comfortable atmosphere in which to savor it. Nice.

Go to the Comfy-Chair Revolution link for more information on this phenomenon. Glenn has a great deal to say on the subject.

* By the way, I can't place this restaurant. It can't be out on I-81 because there isn't a McDonald's there. I remember one being over by Goodwill and the Food Lion, across from the Japanese restaurant (Kabuki?), but I've never been inside. Anyone recognize this McDonald's? It looks to be very cool.
