    Since the Christmas/Hanukkah holidays are fast approaching, and you may be attending festivities where alcohol might be served, I would like to share an experience with you about drinking and driving.

    As you well know, some of us (me) have been known to have had brushes with the authorities on our way home from the odd social session over the years.

    A couple of nights ago, I was out for a few drinks with some friends and had some rather nice Sauvignon Blanc. Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the limit, I did something I've never done before - I took a cab home.

    I arrived back safely and without incident, which was a real surprise since I had never driven a cab before, and I'm not sure where I got this one :)

    On the serious side...

    Four of my PARKED vehicles over the years were kamakazied by drunk drivers.

    My half-uncle drove drunk and killed himself.

    Three people I knew were killed by drunk drivers.

    It was a joke, but this is a serious topic. Please don't drink and drive.

    As they used to say, "The life you save, may be your own".
