It's pretty hard to avoid the sounds of Christmas today. I've already rang the bell by the red kettle when I was also selling hot dogs for "The Horn of Plenty" and I've heard them just about everywhere I've shopped as well. It's pretty hard to escape the Christmas music if you are downtown where...
The turkey is gone, the Fall and Thanksgiving decorations are gone and today the Christmas decorations have come out.These are a few (very few) of Carol's nativity scenes. They look like those of the smallest but she does have some with figures up to to 18". They are beautiful and from several di...
Carol purchased the smallest whole turkey she could find so I'm pretty sure we won't be eating it all the way to Easter unless she freezes some of it for later consumption.The picture above is not ours. I found it on the web and it is NOT copyrighted.At lunch today we did enjoy cold turkey sandwi...

From what I've read here in the Active Rain Q & A section there are quite a few of you that already have their Christmas shopping done.I agree with Joe, I want to avoid this:Our household , all adults now, h...

Having recently made a trip from Minot ND to New Jersey I can relate to the old movie Trains, Planes, and Automobiles.My cross county ...
Many of us over eat during the holidays but thankfully we are not getting "stuffed" to be a sacrifice or dinner for a another species. Yuck!If you are familiar with the Bible you know that there were religions that did require human sacrifice and they were all detestable to the Christian God. In ...
Thinking about food may or may not lift your spirits but listening to others testimonies of JOY will certainly lift your spirits. I am talking about sincere stories of gratitude by others and not people bragging about their victories (no one can tolerate much of that).If you are new to the Active...
I am thankful that my wife doesn't tell me to "get it yourself" when it comes to thanksgiving diner. I'm not quite as helpless as Titus and Philemon. After all I could find a Banquet TV Dinner.
I am pretty sure Timmothy got this idea from when I and his mother deliberately mess up words we are saying to each other just for the fun of it. Of course the master of this was Gilda Radner playing the part of Emily Litella on Saturday Night Live (back when it was funny). Here is a good minute ...
