Topics covered in this E-zine:

1. Holiday Gifts for YOU!
2. Gigs?
3. Last Chance for Special Promotion


1. Holiday Gifts for YOU!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa (did I leave somebody out?)

Regardless of one's specific religious/spiritual heritage, this time of year seems to bring out the best in people ... all that gift-giving and good will towards men (and women) stuff! In that spirit, here are a few offerings from us to you!

"I Choose Love" video by Shawn Gallaway

Get Familair with Ceili Rain - so great!

Please go to this website and light a candle.
Bristol Meyers / Squibb will donate 1$ for every candle lit to various AIDS support groups. Then pass this on to your email list and request your friends and associates do the same.

Join the ONE Campaign to end poverty and AIDS
"We don't need your money --- just your voice."

The Free Hugs Campaign


Over the Top Xmas Lights/Music Display

Most Sadistic Game Show (Japan)

Advice from The Fruitcake Lady

Best Car Ad of 2006? (Honda)
There are NO computer graphics here. This is ALL real!

Last but certainly NOT least! ~~~~~~~

The Secret!


Now you can see the first 20 minutes at Google Video

Thoughts are things!
Now, this is REALLY interesting ... to me, anyway. And it will be to you, too, if you have any intuitive sense of the power of the Law of Attraction ... and wish to use it to best advantage to enhance your own life and the lives of others in the here-and-now.

Watch the trailer, cruise the site, read the synopsis, spend $4.95 and set aside 90 minutes to watch "The Secret". You'll be all the richer for the experience!

Maybe even apply that $4.95 towards purchasing the DVD. And FYI --- we don't make a dime for sharing "The Secret" with you. I've been giving "The Secret" DVDs as gifts all year long. Watch it and see why!

2. Gigs?

The next Orleans date on the books at the moment is in Toronto, Canada on January 20th, 2007. This is a fundraiser for a wonderful organization called
S.A.S.S. --- School Alliance of Student Songwriters.

We also have a trio show (Larry, Lance & Fly) on February 3rd in Jupiter, Florida at The Maltz Theater. The details of this, like all gigs, will be posted on the Touring page of
http://www.orleansonline.com/ as we get closer to it.

We have a date at Foxwoods Casino in eastern Connecticut on
Tuesday, Feb. 13th.

Last and certainly not least, Orleans will be taking a trip to St.Thomas, V.I. to play a "Dancin' in the Moonlight" show on February 17th. Be there or be square!

Please check
www.OrleansOnline.com/TourDates.html periodically for updates about live shows.

If you're new around here, you can catch up on some of what we've been up to by visiting the Tour Diary page and other links found on the Home page of
http://www.orleansonline.com/ Before too long, we hope to have a Newsletter Archives link so newbies can read past editions. Stay tuned!

NOTE: We will be DISCONTINUING this offer for all current subscribers at the turn of the year. After that, it will only be available to new subscribers. So, if you want to take advantage of this rock-bottom pricing, maybe buy a few gift sets to give away for the Holidays, NOW would be a very good time :-)

This is just the beginning of the special perks for List Members ONLY! New downloads of tracks NEVER heard before coming in January!


All of us here in the Orleans ground crew wish you and yours a very Happy Holidays Season and the emergence of your best year ever!

Best wishes for wherever your path may lead you,

Lance Hoppen
(on behalf of all of Orleans)
