    Thumbs up Making spirits bright - Merry Xmas 2011 & Happy New Year 2012

    .
    Seasons Greetings to all BCers.

    The shops are already playing;

    Jingle Bells

    Dashing through the snow
    In a one horse open sleigh
    O'er the fields we go
    Laughing all the way

    Bells on bob tail ring
    Making spirits bright
    What fun it is to laugh and sing
    A sleighing song tonight

    (chorus)
    Jingle bells, jingle bells,
    Jingle all the way;
    Oh! what fun it is to ride
    In a one-horse open sleigh.

    Jingle bells, jingle bells,
    Jingle all the way;
    Oh! what fun it is to ride
    In a one-horse open sleigh.

    Lucky you.

    For us here in Australia, BBQ is more common than steamboat.

    But I would rather prefer steamboat than BBQ.

    Hope that you have a wonderful Merry Xmas Day.

    I agree. She reminded me of Michael Jackson in his earlier shows (with his Afro hairdo); or the Jackson 5.

    Someone asked me to give the lyrics. Here it is;

    Dashing through the bush,
    in a rusty Holden Ute,
    Kicking up the dust,
    esky in the boot,
    Kelpie by my side,
    singing Christmas songs,
    It's Summer time and I am in
    my singlet, shorts and thongs

    Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
    Christmas in Australia on a scorching summers day, Hey!
    Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
    Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

    Engine's getting hot;
    we dodge the kangaroos,
    The swaggie climbs aboard,
    he is welcome too.
    All the family's there,
    sitting by the pool,
    Christmas Day the Aussie way,
    by the barbecue.

    Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
    Christmas in Australia on a scorching summers day, Hey!
    Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
    Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

    Come the afternoon,
    Grandpa has a doze,
    The kids and Uncle Bruce,
    are swimming in their clothes.
    The time comes 'round to go,
    we take the family snap,
    Pack the car and all shoot through,
    before the washing up.

    Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
    Christmas in Australia on a scorching summers day, Hey!
    Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
    Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

    Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

    Thumbs up Happy 13th Birthday to BadmintonCentral on 24-December

    No one has come up with a song for BC's anniversary yet?

    So, what shall we have?

    Perhaps we shall have kwun's story about how BC got started.

    ====== * ====== * ====== * ====== * ======

    "I was sitting at my graduate student office while heavy snow was accumulating outside. I was supposed to be working on my research but instead I was dreaming about badminton. Since it was at night and freezing outside, nobody was available for a game. So instead I was trying to look for information on the internet. To my dismay, I found very little, and whatever I found, i did not like."

    "So I decided to build my own site. It was originally an information site and a review site, people came to BC for articles and links. BC really florished after I added a discussion forum. And the rest, as they say is history. Badminton fans from all over the world starting coming to BC, and we talked about every aspect of badminton imaginable. Later on we started the tradition of gathering in BC during big tournament, virtually hanging out with like-minded badminton fanatics."

    "BC originally was hosted on my desktop unix machine. The traffic was so light it was more than adequate. later on, we had expanded to a real hosted server and nowadays, BC is being handled by a 8-core super fast server."

    "Little did I expect the little website that I started will have more than 1 million posts and tens of thousands of people from all over the world visit us regularly. It was such an incredible experience esp when i get to know and meet badminton fans from all over the world."

    "BC is a community that will cease to exist if it were not for everyone who come here and share your thoughts. So thank you all for your continued support!"

    Kwun deserves our thanks for starting and maintaining BC for all these years.
    I know nothing of haiku, or poetry generally. But I like the idea of brevity.

    cold December creation
    as feathers in warm gym
    makes spirits fly.

    the Christmas seasons will always be especially special for me as it means it is the anniversary of the founding of Badminton Central. as chris' quote says, BC was founded in 24th December 1998 which means BC is 13 years old today.

    it has been a really fun 13 years and not only have i learned a lot of from all the BCers here, i have also made a lot of very valued friendships on the way, ones that will continued to be very well cherished for many years to come.

    and lastly but not least, i wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a smashing New Year.

    2012 will be a very special year for badminton fans.
