I believe in Santa Clause and Bill Cahill and his dogs, and Bill Guerts (sp?)and in trying to spell everyone's name better. I promise to never argue with anyone about religions or politics.
I am open and willing to discuss  the interesting revolutionary differences between Dutch and other European telephones from the last mid-century. HEEMAF and PTT.

Otherwise I agree with Bill:

Bah Humbug!

Matt:

Everyone mispells my name.  I am pretty used to it.  In fact, at work, I have about 4 different aliases set up on the e-mail system so I get my e-mail.  The actual spelling is Geurts (It's Dutch), but I routinely see Guerts, Gurtz. Geurtz Guertz, and those are just the more common versions.  It is definitely not an intuitive spelling, so it does not offend me at all when it gets mispelled.  Usually I am happy enough that people remember me the person, regardless of spelling.

-Bill Guertz

Bill, I thought it was just me.  I have caught myself misspelling it a couple of times.  And there were probably a couple of times I didn't catch myself and spelled it incorrectly.  It's not that difficult but I flip-flop the u and e nearly every time.

I spent my life responding when people call me Mark.  It's because of my last name.  Even friends I have had for years will accidentally call me Mark.  From my earliest grade school memories, people called me Mark.  Not as a nick name or anything, just like, see ya later Mark. :)

Try having the last name Nakielski!  And that Santa Pic is just a little creepy.
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.

     I have incorrectly spelled mienaichizu while having it right in front of me.     DSK, that is a very beautiful view. Your veranda looks like the place I'd like to have my morning coffee, for the rest of my life.
     It's really something for me to be here in my tiny little town of barely over 3,000 people in southern Louisiana and get merry christmas greetings not only from all over the U.S., but from places like the Philippines, London, and Norway. All I can say is wow.

I couldn't have said it any better than that. :D

Tom, you're right, that Santa Clause pic does look a little creepy. I'm really not sure that I'd want him coming into my house on Xmas night. I think he would really scare all my telephones...
