Yearning For Christmas of Yesterday

Posted 05-13-2014 at 09:31 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

As I am close to entering middle agedness, the thoughts of my childhood are so distant and impossible sometimes.
If I could go back in time to one point of my life and relive it would definitely be a Christmas in the early eighties.
I look back at that time and all I see is a conglomerate of memories of those wonderful Christmases.
I cannot recall a single Christmas as an individual memory, there was always the tree, it was in a different spot each year, there was the waking up in the pre-dawn hours. I know I got from Santa one year "Donkey Kong" for the Atari 2600, another a slot car race set, and yet another a model train set, but what years I don't know.
The thought of reliving one of those years with my mother alive, my father sober, and my parents together would be the biggest Christmas present anyone could get, my eyes fill with tears just thinking of that. The gifts under the tree would be a fun moment but to feel the love of my long lost...

Confessions of a Weight Loss Junkie

Posted 03-27-2014 at 03:02 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

I've been told to make a public confessional.

I'm supposed to do this as a means of motivating myself to stick to a changed lifestyle.

Yes, we no longer "lose weight". We "change lifestyles".

In my case that is a true statement.

I'm perfectly healthy. I've never broken a bone or had more than an occasional cold. I've never had surgery and except for some dental work have never really been on any kind of heavy meds.

But I've battled being "big" for most of my life.

Part of it is my build. I'm "wide". When I was a kid I was always the biggest kid -- never really fat...just bigger than others my age. I wore "husky" sizes, a moniker I always hated, and I usually endured the taunts of childhood bullying because I was the size I was.

But I didn't become overweight, actually, until adulthood.

That came as a result of pure undisciplined eating. And after I married, got busy with the...

Musings: Tracking Santa 2013 on Kringle Radio

Posted 12-23-2013 at 10:33 AM by RadioJonD (Tinseled Musings from a Yule Tuned Mind)

Are you listening to Kringle Radio with Santa Updates?! Shame on you if you arenít! Thereís still time to redeem yourself and crank up K-Rad!

As this entry is written, several MMCíers have taken to the airwaves to assist the Elves that are providing Santa updates. An all volunteer staff is doing an EXCELLENT job keeping us in music while Santaís trusty elves track, log and keep abreast of Sleigh woes and once he gets airborne, Santa!

Since I already do a semi-regular show on K-Rad (thanks to the eight or so who have ever listened!), my gift to you for the tracking season is all music hours! No me! Well, okay, we didnít have hardly enough staff for all the fifty hours so I backed up and punted one! Hopefully, you will decide that the kick was good!

We at the station do solicit your comments and input about seasonal programming as well as whatís on the rest of the year. And listen up! This is VERY INPORTANT! Start bugging the snow cream...

A Gift of Mom and Tender Mercies

Posted 12-22-2013 at 09:12 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)
Updated 12-22-2013 at 09:36 PM by Jeff Westover

My Christmas happened today.

We had in my home today an event not understood much outside of my faith. But it is a big deal for parents and I've been working for months to have my parents here for it.

As you are well aware we have been through a difficult time these past several months with my mother's declining health.

So to have her here today for this event, in my home and amongst my children, smiling and laughing, relishing her role as mother and grandmother, doing something a Mom in the Mormon faith does and deserves -- well, it was a thrill beyond words and Christmas to me like none other this year.

It is, frankly, a miracle.

Mom's health situation is as fluid as ever and what was true before is true now: it is literally day to day.

I knew back in August we were going to do this and I had to put off folks from my Church several times because either my parents could not make it or I could not make...
