A hike of atleast 40%.

This year hike will be around 15%, So it is very less likely you will get 40% hike.

I'll take a couple of these:

Damien Hirst’s sculpture, titled “For The Love of God”. It represents a platinum skull encrusted with 8,601 diamonds, eye and nose sockets filled with hundreds of jewels and a 52-carat pear-shaped stone fixed on the forehead, which is further bordered with 14 diamonds. It was influenced by Mexican skulls encrusted in turquoise. The skull has been sold to an investment group for $100 million.

let's hope my father's heart and kidney condition gets better, my mother will soon be done with learning to walk on her new leg (which was finally delivered last week), and my back stops hurting.

I hope that your hopes will be fulfilled.

That sounds more like a dream than a wish, but that would be great if it happened! =)

I would like any of these - I would prefer the full scale but the mini pieces would do. I saw this guy's stuff in Scientific American about 30 years ago (when I subscribed). The really amazing thing is that these sculptures disassemble and can be re-assembled as something different - they came in scale from hanging pendants up to full scale, sigh! Late at night, I drool over beautiful things.

We don't get gifts with Christmas. We celebrate the original holiday of Sinterklaas (yes, Santa-Claus is the lame rip-off :) )
The biggest advantage is that I get gifts on the 5th of December and two days of with Christmas!

But on topic: I'm hoping for a nice bottle of Irish wiskey (sorry JBennet..) and a cigar to go with it :)

This year my family is doing a secret santa, so instead of having to conceive of seven presents to buy one! I bet I'll still (A) buy a bad present, (B) leave it late and (C) buy it for the wrong person though.

JB - Port and a cigar, for me please - um, how about a 1948 Fonseca and some Cubans smuggled down from Canada.

If I was getting a present, I wish I could have "bailout" like the banks in America. Or perhaps like the Auto industry is gonna get.

These businesses can afford to have all their execs and top dogs live lavish lifestyles for the duration of their existence, but when they figure out that it is possible to get help from the government they are all about 'poor me'. Sorry to send such a dark cloud on a nice topic, but I guess I had to put it somewhere.

Signed,

The thousands of small businesses across America that has went bankrupt with no help from the government.

I pray to GOD for their well being.
