Start getting gag gifts for coworkers at the office from the Thrift Store, figure my present scavenger hunt clues, buy a savings bond for grandson, start addressing Christmas cards, decide on a menu & shopping list for th...

We usually have a ham for Christmas since we've just had a turkey for Thanksgiving. It's always one or the other no matter which family we go to or who comes to our house.

There's a recipe for old fashioned home made spiked egg nog in Jimmy Carter's Christmas book that his Dad made every year. I used to make homemade (milk, sugar, vanilla & eggs), but my wife being a scientist is paranoid about various maladies from raw eggs. Now I just buy it at the grocery store and...

I hope we can get a lot more pictures next year. I really enjoy them. I'd post, but I don't have a digital camera.

After I bought them I asked her why she never wore them and she gave me a bunch of reasons, but did not want to hurt my feelings. Luckily, I still had the receipt and she took them back. Now I give her a...

Welcome, Welcome. Good to have newbies this time of year and not just bandwagoneers in December. Looking back I see I never introduced myself. I'm GW in Kansas. I love Christmas all year round. Nothing like a Christmas carol to make August heat bearable. My good wife, bless her heart, humors me and ...

I wish they would spread them out through the year. Even one a month would be nice. If anyone hears of one being on before November 2007, please let us know.

The first time I cooked for my extended in-laws I was trying to impress them and made fancy green beans with bacon, onions and almond slivers. Big Mistake. They asked where the green bean casserole was. Now whenever we have them in the menu is set: ham or turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, dressing, G...

I started watching in earnest lately. Watched Miracle on 34th Street and a tape I have of an old (25years) Hallmark show starring Ed Asner who tries to get all his family back together again before he dies.
