We have five different Holiday occasions with different parts of the family. They all went off without a hitch except for the flu going around! Poor MJ got the worst of it, she wouldn't even sit on Santa's lap. She lost 9lbs in five days! She had her first wrestling tournament of the season this weekend, so she was really missing that 9 lbs. Hope everybody had a great Holiday!

Honorable mention: I do like the song Lonely Road of Faith. Don't know why. It definitely isn't the lyrics, as faith has been a very elusive creature in my life.

Thou wert not sent for slumber! let me be
A sharer in thy fierce and far delight, -
A portion of the tempest and of thee!
How the lit lake shines, a phosphoric sea,
And the big rain comes dancing to the earth!
And now again 'tis black, - and now, the glee
Of the loud hills shakes with its mountain-mirth,
As if they did rejoice o'er a young earthquake's birth.

Through this, I remembered how much I loved Camper Van Beethoven when I was 18 & 19 years old. Here are my two favorites. Enjoy!
Thank you, Lloyd. Happy Holidays. Big Hug.

I couldn't have said it better myself.
"I’ve slowly built over the years not a collection of favorite tunes, but a soundtrack to a film in which I am alternately hero, villain or victim—depending on circumstances."

Everyone that shops on Black Friday is not crazy. I, for example, have 10 kids to buy Christmas presents for and unless I want to get them a nice stocking full of fruit, I have to try to get things at a good price. Example: I bought Jack a Crayola Glow Station, they are normally $30, I got it for $15 yesterday. I got $40 throw blankets that the older girls all want for $8. I got Magee a $70 pair of boots for $20.
Money, yes, it is the new religion. And the moguls of the Money Monarchy have become the priests and popes of this irrational age of corporate planetary domination and destruction. Yes, world bankers and trans-national corporate executives are the true religious leaders. Why? Because the highest, most esteemed calling is high finance. Whole nations are caught up in it. It has become the wishful will of the world and money, the worshipped god. The Wall Street Journal is the Bible, the bank is the cathedral and the people are the parish — and they will perish. They will perish because this religion of money seduces people into schemes and dreams of riches and doing in anyone who might get in the way. - Wulf Zendik-

My most recent binge is the Killing Fields in Phnom Pehn, Cambodia. Weakened by the United States' illegal bombing of the Ho Chi Minh Trail during the Vietnam War, the people of Cambodia fell victim to a genocide that rivalled the Holocaust (Yes, it happened). The brutal campaign by Pol Pot's Khmer Rogue to rid Cambodia of any and all western influence resulted in the death of nearly 20% of the population.

I am very proud of my generation right now. We have truly taught our children that differences are to be celebrated and that fear is bred from ignorance. Yes, the minorities in this country came out in record numbers yesterday but it was Young, White People that elected this President. I am so very proud of that.
We can be Heroes, just for one day.

Saturday Morning Vital Statistics:
Tissue Usage: 12\hour
Total Ear Infections: 2
Nerves Remaining: 1
Total Doe-Eyed Sweeties smiling at me: 4
I tell my mother in law that I will require her to drive but that I will attempt the trip. Worse case scenario, I end up asleep in the parking lot! As it turned out, I couldn't have slept if I had tried. In order to deliver on my promise, I ingested 800 mgs of Ibuprofen, 1-12 hr Sudafed, Antibiotic, 16 oz. of Electrolyte infused water and a double dose of that shit that killed Elvis.* I then repeated this ingestion again 6 hours later, minus the Electrolyte water. I could have lifted the car off of several perilous loved ones in a single bound. I could have, but luckily all I had to do was keep up with the kids for 12 hours. It turned out really well for them. Jack commented that I was funny when I was sick... Just Say No, Jack. Just Say No. Things didn't turn out so well for me this morning when I woke up. I no longer felt like I could lift a car, rather that I had been hit by one.
*This statement is based strictly on mainstream societal belief and in no way reflects my personal opinion about the death of Elvis.
