Snicker’s (my doggies) Version Of a Night Before Christmas…

Posted 01-21-2013 at 10:57 AM by lauriebear

Snicker’s Version Of a Night Before Christmas…

Taws the night before Christmas and all through the house
The kitties were purring and mewing about
Our stockings were hung, on the door way bough
In hopes that Santa Paws would soon be here

Mom was asleep and Pop was too
Dreaming of goodies and fun soon to be had
Bella & Callie pacing the floor
And I on my doggie bed resting my head

When out on the lawn I heard a clatter
My ears all alert I sprang from my bed the kitties right behind me
We all raced to the window
All of our noses pressed to the window

The moon & the lights casting a soft glow
So peaceful, so clam I almost began to wonder
If we were just overacting
But to our surprise right before our eyes

Santa Paws & his reindeer
He jumped from the sleigh
And then caught sight of our wondering eyes

Yesterday was the bluest day... That is what the expert said

It's true, some where someone decided to do a poll and yup, 01/14 of any calendar year is the bluest there is, here is why they said...

1. The holiday glow is now long past
2. The days are still getting dark early
3. Most of us have given up on our New Years Resolutions

WHAT!!! They do not realize that on 01/14 we are only 3 days from the Countdowns first milestone!

Further more they do not know of MMC

Nor are they probably listening to Christmas Music still...

I think these polls and stuff give people ideas, gives 01/14 a bum rap, what has 01/14 ever done to get this rap...

Let me think on 01/14, why it was on 01/14/1914 that Henry Ford introduced the Assembly Line for the Model T and on 01/14/1987 Catfish Hunter & Billy Williams elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame...

I say 01/14 has received a bad rap!!!

At least IMO

Remembering Christmas Past -- Way Past

Posted 01-10-2013 at 09:45 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

Pictured to the right is a baby picture of me -- about two months old just before Christmas of 1963.

I do not remember this picture being taken.

It is part of a large project that I started a couple of years ago for the celebration of my parent's 50th wedding anniversary.

My Dad was kind of a photo nut growing up. When I was a kid we had our own darkroom and I can admit to spending many, many happy hours in my teens there in the dark developing my own pictures, slides and enlargements as a photo hobbyist in the late 70s and early 80s.

My Dad understood then that one of the secrets to good photography is to shoot a lot of pictures.

Unfortunately, time and technology changes and the process of archiving all these fading images takes some learning. But I've been doing it for two years straight now and I have years and years of photo finishing industry experience...

Who do you want to be in 2013

Posted 01-09-2013 at 11:31 AM by lauriebear

I was asked this question today. Well, as I pondered the answer, the little girl standing next to me on the subway stated, I want to be me!!! I smiled at that simple answer, and I looked at the person who asked me this and I said, I ditto her answer, I too want to be me. We all laughed a little, but it really had me thinking. As I walked into my field office I asked some of my foremen, who they wanted to be in 2013, some answered rich, others said retired, a few just said I don't know. Well, to be honest I didn't know either. I want to be me but who is me...

Now it really has me thinking, so I will pose this question to MMC too, who do you want to be in 2013. On December 1st we should go back and see if we lived up to our own expectations.

Here is what I will strive for in 2013 - this is who I want to be...

1. I will smile at everyone on the subway, and I mean everyone even the ones I would shy away from.

2. I will turn...

The January Christmas Fan

Posted 01-05-2013 at 08:59 AM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

January, believe it or not, is one of our most active months of the year.

There are basically three types of Christmas fans online: the December Christmas fan, the year round celebrant and the wanna-be year round celebrant, or, as I like to call them, the January Christmas fan.

The December Christmas fan is the most common. These are folks who love Christmas and celebrate it heartily in December. But once Christmas is over, it's over and we won't see them again until next Christmas.

The year round Christmas fan we know well. These are folks who aren't shy about anything Christmas at any time.

Then there is the January Christmas Fan, a fascinating group of Christmas enthusiasts who are too busy in December with their Christmas to be here, so they show up in January, like the life of the party who shows up late.

We get a lot of feedback from January Christmas fans. And I want them to know we appreciate it.
