New Year’s Eve Reflection

Posted by mcm0704 on December 31, 2014 |

Many of us will be taking time today to reflect on the year that just past – too quickly for some of us – and considering the things we left undone. My friend Slim Randles is here today with some wise words about dreams. Enjoy… There is a nighttime sweetness and hope that hovers over […]

The Eye of the Storm…

Posted by mcm0704 on December 29, 2014 |

…. or The Days Between Holidays I remember when I was doing my various newspaper columns these few days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve were always a little strange. It was too early to do New Year’s related material, and Christmas was gone, so… what on earth should we write about? Nothing has changed, […]

Posted by mcm0704 on December 26, 2014 |

Going back to older blog posts, I found another from 2009 that is appropriate for the day after Christmas. I do hope everyone had a wonderful celebration with family and friends.  In keeping with the Holiday season, here is another excerpt from A Dead Tomato Plant and a Paycheck. Enjoy….. The day after Christmas was […]

Posted by mcm0704 on December 24, 2014 |

It seems particularly fitting to have an offering from Slim Randles this Christmas Eve. Here’s hoping that those of you who celebrate Christmas have the best one possible. For those who celebrate other winter holidays and holy days, my best wishes to you and yours, as well.  Windy had sent off for a doo-dad for […]

Visiting Christmases Past

Posted by mcm0704 on December 22, 2014 |

This post originally ran December 2009. I loved the picture of our cat, John, under the tree, as well as the essay, so I thought I would run it again today. At this time of celebrating winter Holidays, I want to wish everyone the happiest of times with family and friends, and all the best […]

Friday Fun – Got Some M & Ms?

Posted by mcm0704 on December 19, 2014 |

In revisiting past blogs I found this piece that first appeared in October 2008. Thought you might enjoy the humor as you end the workweek and look ahead to the weekend. This is another one from Tracy Farr, a very funny guy who used to be a regular contributor to Winnsboro Today.com, an online community […]

Protect the Children

Posted by mcm0704 on December 17, 2014 |

My heart is particularly heavy today due to the horrible massacre of children  in Pakistan. How Taliban terrorists could purposely target children in a school is beyond comprehension. Who can stand behind a gun and look at a child and pull the trigger? The death toll is 141, most of them children, and another 120 […]

How do You Like Your Gourd Prepared?

Posted by mcm0704 on December 15, 2014 |

You may have noticed I’m a bit late – okay, a lot late – with my Monday blog post. I went to the memorial service for a good friend this morning and then out to lunch with other friends, and we celebrated the friendships we have and the friendship we just lost. Bittersweet moments. Anyway, […]

Posted by mcm0704 on December 14, 2014 |

Instead of a review, I thought I would recommend some books if you have readers on your holiday gift list. These are some of the books I’ve read this year – or hope to read next year – as well as a couple from writers I’ve become friends with online. First on my wish list […]

Posted by mcm0704 on December 12, 2014 |

Instead of my usual Friday fare on the blog, today I’m pleased once again to help a fellow author celebrate the launch of a new book. I’ve known Donna Fasano via social media for some time, and read several of her books. She does tell a good story, and here is her latest, which is […]
