    You never really need to post about anything though.

    Just interested in what/if anybody goes out of their way to make someone's day.

    I'm all with you there. I worked at a Hallmark Cards in HS and when home for the holidays through college. That and smelly candles make me want to kill myself.

    I gave a dollar the other day so they'd stop ringing that goddamn bell. I also gave a 20-spot to the Sandy relief.

    Although this year is the first year in a very long time that I'm not 100% grinch. It's amazing what having a baby will do to your xmas spirit. I'm almost a little excited for xmas day :shocked:

    The local grocery store, King Soopers, has these Christmas trees with cards from seniors where they request things. They have no family left, or none that visit them, so no one gets them presents. Some of it really made me realize I take things for granted, even friends and family. They want stuff like Pepsi, candy, colored markers, etc. Just basic things that the retirement home doesn't provide but they have no one to get for them.

    It reminded me somewhat of when 2 of my best friends were over in Iraq (and then again in Afghanistan); I sent them cigars, snacks, snowboard/bike movies and even just pictures of day to day things over here. I took a picture during rush hour traffic when I was at a standstill and said "at least you don't have to deal with this sh!t"; they said it was strangely hilarious missing rush hour from a desert.

    On Friday there is a charity ride in NZ called the longest day.
    It's for Arthritis NZ.
    The longest day of the year in the southern hemisphere is at the end of this week.
    at the official dawn (approx 5:48am) you get on your bike and ride.
    You ride where ever you want and what ever speed you want, and can stop for as many cafe/meal breaks as you need but you don't finish the ride until official sunset (9:10pm roughly).

    http://www.mfla.org.nz/longest-day-ride/



    So as I'm going to be stuck at my bike shop all day, to support the riders all morning I will be doing free coffees and muffins for any participants that ride past the shop, and from lunchtime onwards I will be cranking up the BBQ and handing out craft beer.
