Ready or Not, Here Comes 2018

How ever you celebrate the coming new year, be safe and as healthy as possible.  Best wishes for the new year.

Dust of Snow

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change in mood
And saved some part
Of a day I rued.

My Favorite Christmas Songs, Redux

Last year I posted a list of my favorite Christmas songs, with links so you could listen to them.  That list still stands, but I’m adding the B team to the list to update it for this year.

Enjoy, and Happy Holidays, whatever you celebrate this season.

  • I Never Spend a Christmas That I Don’t Think of You – Statler Brothers


  • Someday At Christmas – Stevie Wonder & Andra Day


  • Santa Claus Is Coming To Town – Smokey Robinson & The Miracles


[heard in The Santa Clause 2, but this doesn’t get cut off during the chorus]

  • Snoopy’s Christmas vs. The Red Baron – The Royal Guardsmen


  • Angels We Have Heard On High – The Piano Guys, Peter Hollens, David Archuleta, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir


You can find the original (last year’s) list at:

What’s For Supper?

“So, what are you having for supper?”


“Well, yes, but I meant the meal?”


“But, ‘real food’?


“That isn’t exactly—”


*sigh*  Nevermind.

Enjoy your celebrations tomorrow, U.S.A.!
