Stop Threatening Me With Santa
                Tis the
season to use Santa to get our kids to listen and behave.  You know the drill.  “You had better stop hitting your brother or
Santa won’t bring you anything for Christmas.” 
We’re all guilty of it or at least we have most likely had i...

Baby It's Cold Outside
                Well,
we had our first snowfall of the season last night.  My hands about froze while I was scraping my

Weddings and Funerals
                I was
browsing Facebook this morning and a friend had posted a photo that said, “You
don’t need a reason to help people.”  It

Giving Tuesday 2013
               Last year at around this time, I wrote about “Giving
Tuesday.”  It’s a movement to give back
on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.  That
is a mere 25 days from now, December 3. 
I will do my best to help you generate ideas in order to

The Versatile Shoebox Shoeboxes have been used for a
variety of reasons.  I remember
scrounging for a shoebox to make my diorama project for a grade school history
project.  Before the invention of plastic
boxes, shoeboxes held records of bills paid.
