Season’s Greetings

This wonderful little video, ‘The Christmas Story’ as told by the children of St Paul’s Church, Auckland, New Zealand is a beautiful expression of the pure joy we all deserve to feel at Christmas time. Thanks to those who made it.

To all the subscribers, readers and friends of Betchablog, thanks for being part of my world. It means a great deal to me. As you gather with your families and friends, have a safe and happy Christmas season, and I’ll see you in 2012!

Love, Chris

Merry Christmas

As we celebrate Christmas and 2010 draws to a close, here’s a little video to make you smile.

Special Christmas wishes to everyone who has been part of my world for the last 12 months.  It’s been a wonderful year, full of learning, fun, travel, meeting interesting people, connecting with my network, and sharing ideas with each other.  I’ve had the good fortune to do some travelling this year and met many wonderful folk in person that I’ve only ever known online, as well as meeting a whole of great new people, and that’s been a real highlight for me.  You know who you are, and I feel so much richer for it.  Thanks!  

I feel like 2010 has been an amazing year of connecting with others, and it’s been incredibly rewarding on many levels.  To everyone who has left comments on the blog, connected via Twitter or Facebook or Skype or email or the many other ways we have of being connected (including face to face of course!), thank you… those connections mean a great deal to me.

Hope you all have a great Christmas with your families and friends, and that 2011 will be a great year for you.

Love, Chris

Getting into the Christmas Spirit

Last night Linda and I went in to the Sydney Carols in the Domain Christmas concert.  All this southern hemisphere Christmas-without-snow was causing some mental disconnect for Linda so she was having a bit of trouble getting into the spirit ot the season… seems that the carols has gone some way to helping alleviate that.  (And Sydney really does know how to throw a great outdoor event.)

For those that live on the top half of the planet, here are a few photos to show you what an Aussie Christmas looks like…
