  I look forward to CyberMonday every year. True, it can sometimes turn into an expensive distraction but its fun nonetheless to look for the sales. Given the complications of shopping in a pandemic, it seems that this year’s CyberMonday could be CyberSeason. I admit I’ve started to buy a few things. The sales this year seem to be better than ever. And I am more confident than any year prior that all of my shopping will be completed online. Have you started your holida...

  Amparo’s email on fredslist yesterday got me thinking early.   During the wonderful cooking frenzy on Thanksgiving Day, my mind always goes to my list. My blessings list. It’s sort of my own Thanksgiving tradition with myself. This year, I started early. In a year in which we are struggling through once in a lifetime challenges, my list is longer than ever – and that is at the top of my list. Who would have thought that in a year in which we are all trying to manage a...

Thanksgiving will be small this year. Just my immediate family after some family friendly pre-dinner swabs. Who could have imagined that set up for a Thanksgiving dinner? That said, my blog today is not about a COVID Thanksgiving. Instead, I am looking for your favorite side dishes. Because my group is small this year, I feel like I have an opportunity to explore some new recipes. So, share with me Gotham. What is your favorite Thanksgiving side dish? Dessert?   ...

    Last week I blogged about National Hugging Day. I liked that blog. It reminded me of a story from my daughter’s high school days (recounted in last week’s blog). I decided to do a little research to see what other National Days were coming up.  I was astounded. The website lists them all. February alone has: National Baked Alaska Day, Ice Cream for Breakfast Day (I like that one), National Day the Music Died Day, National Create a Vacu...

  Can you guess which one? It’s National Hugging Day! Apparently, this very special day was created in 1986 to try to get ahead of a season when many people’s spirits might be low. The idea is to share a moment of affection and caring which in essence, shares a smile. It seems that the record of most hugs given by one person in one hour was 1,749. Now that is a lot of hugging. I remember when my daughter was in high school, completely unrelated to National Hugging Da...

  For over 13 years I have been writing a blog on Monday nights. You’ve all heard me talk about how my family runs away as I sit down to write for fear of being the topic when I am looking for one. I have never though just completely forgotten to write a blog – until last night. So, I will just here wish everyone getting ready to celebrate Christmas a wonderful time with family and friends – and great presents....

  The turkey was finished, leftovers put away, kitchen cleaned, floor mopped, and garbage was at the curb. It was a long, fun, day spent with family and good friends. During our clean up, my daughter asked if I would consider doing some midnight shopping with her at our local outlet. My son was going with his friends and the idea tickled her too. So off we went for a midnight shopping spree at Tanger. It was cold and crowded – and oh so much fun. The deals were great an...

  Since I am writing on Monday evening, I am reflecting on the phrase of our day -- “thank you for your sacrifice.” Today we remembered those who gave their lives for our country and served to protect us all. Today we express gratitude for acts of courage of so many over so many years that resulted in the loss of their lives. We hear so many stories from those who served. My father-in-law was the pharmacist’s mate on a navy destroyer, the USS Beatty, that sank in the Medit...

Still?     It is January 8 and I am still wishing people a Happy New Year. Are you?     At what point does it no longer feel right to be extending that greeting? Is January 15 a good time to stop? Halfway through the first month of the year. I'm not really sure.   Well, happy new year! This could be the last time I am going to say that until 2020 . . .     ...

  As we all wake up today, it is the start of a new year — kind of like a new beginning.     Think about your first day of high school, first day of college, first date, new job, birth of your first or second child . . . So many things happen in our lives that start a new cycle of life.     That’s how I feel about January 1st every year. There is a whole fresh year ahead. Who knows really what we will be talking about on New Years Eve of 2019. But on New Years Day we have...
