Chistmas Morning 2008

Papa's Christmas Present from John & Clare

Each year my siblings, and our spouses all 'draw-names'.  This is a hold over from my childhood where being faced with purchasing six presents one for each brother and sister was so daunting we decided to 'draw-names'.  We now number 13 and do enjoy the fun of getting a present for a brother, sister, sister-in-law, or brother-in-law.  

A few years ago, after reading Cryptonomicon I wrote an application that did the name drawing at random and was extended the next year and years after to remember who's name was drawn the year before.  

So I'm now converting it to a web app but have not finished it yet.  Here is a link to the page and if  you click on my 'wish-list' you can see I did get my wish.
