About Me I am an IT contractor and occasional freelance writer. I am a bit of a political junkie and I spend a fair amount of time volunteering for liberal and progressive causes. I was diagnosed with Lupus (SLE) about 8 years ago and I am also involved in advocacy and awareness for autoimmune disorder research as well as support groups for patients with these types of chronic illnesses.

    "I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." Charles Dickens    Wishes for a Happy Christmas and Happy Days to you .
