"When the dog bites,
when the bee stings
when I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things
and then I don't feel so bad!"
~~ from Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music

Hi all,

With the Christmas season upon us, I've been pretty busy.  What time I've had for JABB I've mostly spent working on the next newsletter which will feature the annual Christmas story... and also be our 400th!  So this issue is a bit thrown together to accommodate that. 

Having recently viewed NBC's The Sound of Music Live, I decided a nice way to start to close out the year and celebrate the season was to do Favorite Things lists both for myself, whomever wanted to join in, and for some of the characters.  I hope you get to enjoy a few of your own favorite things this Christmas season!

God bless,

This newsletter is dedicated to John Dye for, simply put, being my favorite actor.  To be honest, there are other actors whose body of films I enjoy more.  However, I can't think of any actor whose work overall has touched me as much as John's has.  When the dog bites and bee stings of life come, his work on TBAA and what it's inspired here on JABB are among my main sources of comfort.  Thank God that I tuned into CBS on January 6th, 1996!  :-)
