Astigmatism would suck, my wife has it and driving at night looks like this, all the time.

I also have astigmatism. Have glasses and hard contacts that correct much. I drive well at night.
Not an expert, but wondering if her situation might be worse than mine. Also, I find most women really don't like to drive at night.

That entirely depends. I have astigmatism and I can drive at night just fine.

Do have glasses that can correct it some how?

I have pretty strong astigmatism, and have always had "hard" (RGP) contacts because they correct it better than soft contacts would. That said, I get a little of that effect from the photo. THAT said, I didn't realize for many, many years (like until just a few years ago) that everybody didn't see things like that.

Love Christmas songs -- I've always felt Happy Xmas was Lennon's finest solo work (not Imagine or #9 Dream). But since we all know that one, here's one I've enjoyed every Christmas morning since I was a little boy, off of Johnny Cash's fantastic The Johnny Cash Family Christmas album. Unfortunately, since I have listened to it every Christmas morning since I was a little boy, it's a bittersweet song for me now because of all the loving faces who shared those mornings with me... that I'll never see again. Time is a merciless bitch. On the other hand, nothing like this song to immediately evoke in my mind's eye the loving smile on my grandmom's face, who took such joy in my joy.

My Merry Christmas Song
