Interesting. Some of those in the list I've no idea what they are but i'll google them for curiosity's sake.

Happy holidays Rafiki and your readers. Merry Christmas and happy new year. I'll be off blogosphere for these few days till January.

Excellent idea Shiko, I think I will just do the same! Bye for now and see you next year.

Oh Shiko, forgot to tell you, the ones you don't know are all social networking sites popular in some other countries.

@ pink m: What makes you assume I would be a chrismatarian? Thanks for keeping it all warm & nice, I am now back, amazing how these two weeks have recharged me! I have done it all: the parks, the coast, time with family. Spent a lot of money and had a lot of fun. Something to be recommended and to be repeated. Thanks again to Shiko for the tip.
