Noticing the date 1986-11-25, it might be a good time to lighten the 
mood, in the spirit of the season and the group, by suggesting and 
requesting late anniversary submissions by filkers and literary posters 
based on:


and pastiches and parodies like:


perhaps titled "A Visit from St. Arthur", starting:

	"Twas a month before Xmas, ..."

hopefully including mentions of other early participants, possibly as 
reindeer ;^>

At the latter link, for inspiration perhaps look at:

	"Tis the Month Before Christmas"

	"The Net Before Christmas"

	"Twas the Night Before Y2K"


	"Twas the Night Before Implementation"

	"Twas The Cyber Night Before Christmas"



	"Twas the night before start-up"


Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
