    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all the Saigon Kids…Mike McNally

  • Randy Seely

    Same to you, Mike and Ken! Wishing everyone all the very best for a happy, healthy 2016.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  • To all,
    Happy holidays near dear ones, however you celebrate. I like to say to myself every morning ‘All of life comes to me with ease, joy, and glory.’ It’s an attitude adjustment, and though I’m a skeptic generally, it really works.

    The Saigon Kids might like to read a book I discovered accidentally on night on the way to an award program at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA. A place literally across the street from my residence. The author was receiving an award for this work…eight pages of credits from reviewers can be found when you open the book.

    It’s by Tim O”Brien entitled, “The Things They Carried” ISBN 978-0-618-70641-9; somebody give it try and let’s start a conversation. There just might be another National Book Award hiding among the Saigon Kids. Best to all,

    Bob R. USOM Saigon, 1966-1969

    Now that Bob is back, isn’t it time for all to start writing on this blog again, and not let all the work be done by Ken 🙂 What about giving news of your part of the country, projects, travel, whatever…

    Here, in Montreal, the big thing is that there is no snow yet and none forecast. And Canadians can bear temperatures of -30 C for a whole month without even noticing it, but a Christmas whitout snow, THAT is a catastrophy!

    And we have begun to receive our first Syrian refugees. You may know that we had a change of government. Mr “Squeer” has been replaced by an idealistic young men who has swore to return Canada to what it was: open and generous. So we will be receiving 25 thousand refugees in the coming months.

    Mind you Canadians are generous but not stupid. Most of the refugees will come from HCR camps in Jordan and Lebanon where they have been rotting for months or even years, they have been screened and re-screend by the UN, then screened and hand picked by the Canadian immigration services, and so far the several hundreds that have arrived are all Christians!
    I imagine the rest of them won’t all be Christians and it is possible that there might be some rotten apples in the lot. The risk is there, but so far, the two “terrorist” attacks we had in Canada were perpetrated by two genuine white christian Canadian lunatics with guns, so it is hard to say were the real danger lies.

    And, you should have seen the incredible look in the eyes of these poor people when they finally did set foot here, beaming… but still not believing they had really escaped from hell! At scenes like these, one realizes how lucky we are and have been.

    So, that is the news from the North. Merry Xmas to all, and a happy, healthy, busy year 2016.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2016 to all the Sai Gon Kids…

    Here in Sai Gon, it is H O T !!!


  • Merry Christmas, and a very Happy New Years.May God Bless each and everyone.

  • Happy Holidays! Here in Florida it is hot and muggy. We expect rain tonight and tomorrow.

    What a blessing it would be if the United States opens its heart and doors to Syrian refugees! What would have happened if Egypt turned away Joseph, Mary, and Jesus as they fled the wrath of Herod? War is hell, but hatred is worse.

    Mele Kalikimaka and Hau’oli Makahikiho. A lovely holiday to all and a healthy new year.
    Here on the Garden Island of Kauai it remains sunny and beautiful and my wish is that you have sun and beauty in your hearts this season even if not in your weather!
