Dear Readers, I want to say Thank You so much for hanging in there with me throughout all these years. When I started this blog, it was because I thought it would get me “recognized” as a serious writer, blogger, all around information giver. It’s not any of these things. Seriously, these past months have been hard for me to even sit down and write a blog post, much less the sequel… Read More

This year I chose to feature small businesses for gift-buying and giving instead of actual gift recommendations. Let’s face it 2021 has been a strange year.   Businesses are still in comeback mode after all the shutdowns from 2020. Apex QC Fans is owned and operated by Jack and Elaine Williamson and it is located in Parker, Colorado.  They serve the South East Metro area; as well as Parker, Castle Rock, and other… Read More

White Christmas by Bing Crosby “I’m dreaming of a white… Read More

So it’s Christmas once again.   Bah Humbug! I know what you’re thinking. Why would she even write those words and on let alone on Christmas? I write today because sometimes we need to step back and take a different way of looking at things.  Most of us are fortunate this year.  A warm home to live in, food on the table, presents were under the tree, family and loved ones gather around. … Read More

Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Years Eve and oh forget it!! Too many holidays in one month! I find it harder and harder each year to send out cards, letters and make phone calls. When did it become necessary to make sure that we included every holiday into our belief system? I celebrate Christmas because I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that he came to earth, born… Read More
