Gloria Estefan - The Christmas Song.mp3

Here you will always find the American flag

waving and the American eagle flying.

Choosing to live a happy life is not only our greatest gift to ourselves,

it is also the greatest gift we can give to those around us.

When we are happy, we radiate happiness, and that is infectious.

Consider giving the gift of happiness to yourself as being

your gift to all humanity.

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Today is your day to paint life in bold colors,

set today's rhythm with your heart-drum,

walk today's march with courage,

create today as your celebration of life.

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Live boldly. Laugh Loudly. Love Truly.

Play as often as you can

Work as smart as you are able.

Share your heart as deeply as you can reach

- Mary Anne Radmacher

One would have to wonder how this wheel

chair ended up in a field? It possibly is not

too far from a home or hospital and it appears

the vandals have already used their black

spray paint to let people know they were here.

The shoe strings must have been

worth saving?

I would have never thought of hanging

a chair like this. I like it.

And anything with chocolate chips

has got to be delicious. Don't forget

the coffee.

Oh my!! I could take them all, but "if" I had

to pick one of these cuties, I would have to

go with the calico on the left. Jut look at

those faces.

Kind of a different display of some oldish

things. I like the variety.

Old tins must have been sitting taking up

space. Now they have a whole new look

and the plants look good in them.

God bless our firemen ... double ahhhh!

Festive Popcorn Balls

A all-time favorite

  • 7 quarts popped popcorn
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Food coloring, optional

  • Place popcorn in a large baking pan; keep warm in a 200° oven.
  • In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, water and salt.
  • Cook over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 235° (soft-ball stage).
  • Remove from the heat. Add the butter, vanilla and food coloring if desired; stir until butter is melted. Immediately pour over popcorn and stir until evenly coated.
  • When mixture is cool enough to handle, quickly shape into 3-in. balls, dipping hands in cold water to prevent sticking.

You took the time, thank you!

What a wonderful feeling

this can be!

You will be listening to mostly

Christmas music this month.

I might include a misc song

now and then.

Another week has gone by. Hoping you enjoy

the weekend and celebrate life. 

And now till another time, be safe in

all you do. Be aware of everything and

everyone around you at all times. A

very good habit .... take care!
