Happy New Year

Posted by mcm0704 on December 31, 2012 |

I know it is not officially the New Year until tomorrow, but in some place in the world it is already tomorrow, so it is okay to start the good wishes flowing. Note, I said, good wishes, not champagne, although some of that is perfectly okay in my book. Tonight, I will be celebrating with […]

Boxing Day

Posted by mcm0704 on December 27, 2012 |

All I got for Christmas was an iPad and the flu. No, seriously, I did get a number of other lovely gifts, which I have not been able to enjoy because of the aches and chills, and fever and coughing, and wanting to sleep for hours.  Therefore I failed to get this posted yesterday, which […]

The World Did Not End

Posted by mcm0704 on December 21, 2012 |

Good morning. We are all still here, so obviously the prediction that the world would end because the Mayan calender did was wrong. Funny how that happens with predictions. It’s also funny how plans go awry. This time of the year is busy for everyone who celebrates winter holidays.  For me it is Christmas, and […]

School Shootings

It’s hard to let the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday pass without a comment. I know there are no words that can take away the awful pain of loss so many are experiencing, so all I can offer is my support and prayers that the families and friends of those who lost their lives […]

A Holiday Gift

Posted by mcm0704 on December 14, 2012 |

HAPPY HOLIDAYS As we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of preparing for the holidays, it is easy to forget what the season is all about. After my husband and I moved to Texas from Michigan, we rarely made it back to our home state for holidays, and my mother always sent handmade […]
