Hi Jarkko,

Well that would stuff your stocking!!
Superb ice sculpture - it would be most welcome here down under - temp is 35 degrees celsius !

Thank you very much - wonderful rendition of Silent Night by Leonard (and I think Jennifer Warnes) - I especially love the violin :D

MERRY CHRISTMAS !! - to you and your family, the moderators and all the forum members.
May the New Year bring us many LC concerts :)

Impressive piece of ice work! What is the size of it? It is difficult to judge from the picture. Is it laid on snow or is this just an effect? And is the colouring produced by the lighting or is the ice dyed? :D

Oh, and Merry Christmas! 8)

Dear Eija and Jarkko,

Many thanks Eija, for sharing your beautiful ice work with us! And Jarkko, thank you immensely for bringing Leonard's "Silent Night" to share with the Forum! A gentle moment at a gentle time (er, unless you haven't started shopping yet). Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all....

Thanks Jarkko! Does Eija have an ice work page on the Files yet? I don't know how many years this is, but she's done quite a few now. Definitely enough to fill up a page. They're so peaceful to look at.

All the best to everyone in the New Year!

I've had a few beers with work colleagues and I come home to this. I don't care now if Santa arrives at my house or not. This gave me a good feeling. After all, it is ALL about feelings.

Thanks a million Jarkko

Have a great Christmas and hope to bump into you again in 2010

Love Tinderella
