Happy New Year!

January 1, 2020

Okay, so we can’t predict the future. We can’t really control the future. All we have is the present moment. Easier concept to say than to understand. Like most people, I had been big on New Year’s resolutions. And having just one resolution would not do, I would have a list of ten. Needless to […]

So we go downstairs this morning, start preparing breakfast, take a look over towards the tree and this is what we see. It seems that Sir Oliver has been eyeing the nativity creche and decided he was a good stand in for the baby Jesus. We had to explain that, although he’s cuter than heck, […]

Sir Oliver is all excited because he got one of his Christmas gifts early this year. As you can see, it’s a little drum and he just loves it. We’ve had to set some rules, however. No banging on it before 7 am and after 8 pm. Sir Oliver also has his own little Christmas […]

We do live in an information-based society. Most, or maybe just some, of us, are very careful about what we share online. But it’s funny how we react to things. A dear friend and I went to a financial seminar the other night. The topic was, “Managing your Retirment,” which is something we all need […]

You might say that I am very much a traditionalist at heart. This was brought home to me by a recent dining experience.
