Christmas Music

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

What are you listening to this season?   I am listening to lots of my old favorites. I listed several of them on Amazon a few years ago. You can see them here.  I try to purchase a new Christmas Cd each year. This year, I found 2 at the thrift store for $1 each. […]

Christmas Cards

Friday, December 4th, 2015

Someone on Facebook posted a link a few days ago about sending photo Christmas cards. They said they weren’t doing that anymore because it’s to show off and one up everyone. (Basically in my own words….)   I didn’t leave a comment on their page but the post bothered me. It doesn’t bother me if […]
