    Merry Christmas

    It’s just a simple gift, and not even a new one. In fact, it’s even been passed around some. I had to borrow it myself to share it with you. But sometimes the best gifts are ones that many can share in. Go ahead, pass it around some more. Share it with all that you think might appreciate it.  Merry Christmas, and please remember our troops in your prayers. | Read More »

    Merry Christmas Eve

    Have an open thread. We are moving slow around here today with the holidays. I have my column up at Human Events about Kwanzaa — the scientology of holidays. The first few comments are pretty hysterical. As I note, In 1977, Karenga outlined the principles of Kwanzaa and later noted, “People think it’s African, but it’s not. I came up with Kwanzaa because black people | Read More »

    And On Christmas

    Let me first open by saying a very Merry Christmas to all.  Merry Christmas in the federal holiday sense of the word.  Merry Christmas in my personal belief that “Christ the Savior is born”.  And finally, Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends, and to the Muslims Kul ‘am wa enta bi-khair!  Christmas as the federal holiday, started by Grant in 1870 is meant to be a time | Read More »

    On Christmas, let’s remember the Troops who make it possible…

    To my Conservative Friends: I always like to take a breath during a holiday to step away from the banter and passionate debate about our politics and our history to recognize a very special group of Americans, our troops… We argue loud and strong everyday about our beliefs and we should realize that our ability to express our beliefs so freely is equally, if not | Read More »

    Yes, it really *IS* a wonderful life

    My wife emailed me this: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/19/movies/19wond.html?emc=eta1 Here’s the  summary: “It’s a Wonderful Life” is a terrifying, asphyxiating story about growing up and relinquishing your dreams. Was this what adulthood promised?” I doubt that there’s a human being on the planet who hasn’t seen this movie, with the possible exception of a few tribal groups deep in the Amazon.  The author of this review puts a completely | Read More »

    Christmas, light on the Christ…

    So apparently my attempts to carry two jobs and still try to sleep normal hours while pouring hot caffeinated deliciousness down my gullet to stay awake through training to learn how to ask diners if they want wedge or waffle fries has contributed to slight bouts of insomnia.  While this has been great for catching up on “Home Improvement” and “House,” it has proved detrimental | Read More »

    Carol of the Bells

    When Evelyn was an infant we noticed she had a thing for music. In particular, whenever she heard “Carol of the Bells” she froze in her tracks, regardless of what she was doing, and spontaneously would start shaking. The shaking became dancing. The dancing became laughing. It was like clock work. Even now at age 3, she does the same thing with “Carol of the | Read More »
