Well, my post is done. I agree with all the above.

Billy - I hide them in the back of the CD book (holder). That way if I'm in the car and need them . . . . . You know . . . . . for that emergency fix.

stillsnowberry - Johnny Tillotson? The Christmas Touch? I have a little of many artists, but I don't have that one. Really good ???

Our weather here is still hot during the day, but really cool at night. A sure sign that summer is ending . . . . . I hope.

All this talk of Christmas music . . . . I need a fix now.

Later !

It has more recently been coming out that I am addicted to Christmas. I have found myself constantly bring up Christmas. Nobody has said anything so maybe it isn't that obvious. I keep my Christmas CD's and movies mixed in with the other non-Christmas ones. If anybody brings it up I just say I was too lazy to move them.

Billy - My movies on the other hand, are somewhat organized. The Christmas movies are on the top shelf off to the right (in a corner). That way I can slip one out from time to time and no one seems to notice. I have got to add to my Christmas section. It's the smallest section by far.

I do have a few "yule log" of fireplace tapes (discs). My wife recorded a show called "The Yule Log" for me on year that I was working on Christmas. It was just a fire place, with an occasional shot of a tree or wreath, then back to the fire place. All this with a suitable array of Christmas carols in the background. I was quite surprised when I came home at midnight (25th) and found a fireplace on TV (we have no real fireplace), and the kids up to greet me. It was a late, but very nice Christmas that year. You'd be surprised how many family members ask to borrow that tape, as silly as it might seem. I had to make copies so I wouldn't wear out the original.

Wow, that's more that I've said all month in the count down forum. Well it's 0005hrs here in Chicago, and I have a few more posts to do. So, I'll bid everyone a great day.

I have a dvd like this! I can't remember what it's called (I'll have to look when I get home) but it's just a fireplace burning & continuous Christmas music! Last year between Christmas & New Years we had my family over on a Saturday night for a cookout. We ate in our basement (our basement if fixed up) & I had the fireplace dvd playing on our big screen tv. It was so awesome! Everyone commented on it. It felt so cozy!

Yeah, I get a lot of laughs too, but later on people ask for a copy, or where they can buy it.

The tapes my wife got off local TV. It was simocast (I know I misspelled it) on local radio. It was great to have all the tv sets and radios in the house tuned so you got the same fireplace and music in all the rooms. My guests were amazed. No one laughed that year. The tv station broadcast the yule log for 4 years, I think, then it was gone. The years I was off work, I recorded it. I had to dub it to disc just so it wouldn't wear out.

I bought an over-the-counter version called: "Fireplace" - "Visions of Tranquility"
It has both music (seasonal and regular), and natural fire sounds.

I'd really like to know the titles of what you both (or anyone else) has. The snowfall dvd sounds interesting too.

I have a yule log DVD and it's okay, but can't hold a candle to the WPIX yule log. I DVR'd all three hours last Christmas, then my DVR went crazy and they sent me a new one, so I lost the yule log. I'm sure they'll show it again this Christmas, but I'd like to start watching it earlier. sigh. This time I'm going to switch it over to a dvd, so it'll be safe.

Johnny Tillotson

Yes It's Christmas Touch. I actually had the record album back in the early 70's. The cd has one extra song called Pretty Papers. It's my least favorite of the songs on the cd. Probably because it wasn't on the album and I'm sentimental.

I looked at mine at lunch. The one I have on VHS is called Almost Home For The Holidays. It has all different Christmas & winter scenes set to Christmas music. I found it on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Almost-Home-Ho...8499588&sr=1-2

The DVD I have is called Holiday Yule - This is a continuous fire w/ 24 Christmas songs. I also found this one on Amazon, but there's not much of a description:
http://www.amazon.com/Holiday-Yule/d...8499991&sr=1-1

I found the Holiday Yule on ebay too - has a picture:
