Merry Christmas to all, and the very best wishes for the coming New Year.

The shear size and multicultural membership of ES, with everyone around the globe that's here sharing a common interest in pollution free, low impact, transport, is heartening in this age where so few seem to care much about their environment. Long may ES continue to grow and spread the word.
Please ask questions on the forum, rather than by PM, as it helps others and you'll get a better range of answers.

Long live ES:)

Merry christmas to you all as well.
I got a dremmel so now I can get a master link onto the bike with great ease and use it for various projects later on. It's one of those items I did not feel like buying even though I needed it, i dont know why :roll:
I have learned a great deal from this forum and continue to learn each day. I feel as though I am addicted to this forum because I just can't stop reading it. Does anyone share the same kind of raw addiction I have?

Merry Christmas to you and the rest as well as a happy new year to all. I have to count my blessings now and again and this place and those who live :shock: or visit here are definitely one of them. Other blessings reached this year include the ability to lift 40 LBS and to drive a car. Life is good. Thanks for all of the smiles, knowledge and help.

Merry Christmas to all my ebike brethren. May your bikes never run out of juice and electrons always flow whenever you call upon them to do so, and above all else keep yourselfs safe out there. This past year brought far too many accidents to our group. A little shiny skin to reinforce a lesson is one thing, but anything requiring a visit to the doctor needs to be considered unacceptable.

Peace and Love to you all,

Nothing like having my youngest daughter back home for a few days to put me in the Christmas spirit! Stayed up to 3 am with her last night solving the problems of the world at the dining room table. For me, it doesn't get any better than that!

Wishing all the folks here a most happy and blessed Christmas! It's been a good year for the ol' guy, and I hope it was for you too. The older I get the more I relish the simple things, the simple times, and the good cheer of good friends.

All the best,

This year instead of "going home" - my bestest pal & his lovely wife that I've know since college are up in Seattle for the first time ever and we'll be spending the time frolicking in the Emerald City as kids ...again. Coming from the California Central Valley rain desert, I wonder what they will think of Rain City? Personally - I like splashing through the puddles - though snow would be better. There's just something about snow and Christmas in a city that makes the whole experience so exciting 8)

The best Christmas I ever had was the time we had 9 inches of snow drop on Seattle back in the 90s: The whole town shut down and people came out of their houses to play in it like a giant group Think, a Community drawn together as One. Really a great celebratory time.

I wish you all a safe and happy holiday! KF

I appreciate everyone on this forum. I wish everyone a wonderful day of rest, visit with family, and practice of their faith on this holiday we celebrate. :)
