Merry Christmas from the Miller Family


It’s been a good year for us. Although Jeanie has neglected her painting she has made up for that by singing, a lot. On Christmas Eve, she participated in the Christmas Concert for the community of Boquete and, in addition to being in the chorus, sang four solos. I’ve neglected my blog due to commitments at Warsclerotic, an Israeli aggregator blog. When I post something at my blog relevant to Israel or the Middle East, I cross post it there.

Here is a photo of our worker, Daniel, and his family who came to wish us a Merry Christmas.

Here’s a photo of four of us – Ruff, Dan, Sunshine and Jeanie. Neither of our two remaining horses, Dancer and Daisey, wanted to come into our house to be photographed.


Now for some Christmas music you may not have heard. It’s from Venezuela, where Jeanie and I enjoyed ourselves greatly before El Thugo Chavez came to power in 1998. The prospects there may now be better, but the likelihood that the economy and semblances of freedom and democracy will be restored remains highly questionable.

Venezuelan Christmas tunes, so different and unique from the packaged music that seems to have become the rule elsewhere. A guitar with “Niño Lindo” and Guanaguanare with the original folk composer.
