How Far Is Too Far?

Posted 09-25-2012 at 02:43 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I am writing this as I have just witnessed something disgusting in the center of my town, I am not writing this too be polarizing, or "preach from a soapbox."
I ran to the grocery store before picking up my son, and I saw something in front of Dunkin Donuts that I thought that I could not believe was there. I ran to pick up my son, and I felt like I had to drive by it again to be sure of what I saw. Someone set up in front of Dunkin Donuts, a table with a few posters of President Barack Obama made to look like Adolph Hitler, with signs saying "impeach Obama." I could not care about the impeach signs, that is their Freedom of Speech right, but when you put it with posters that make him look like one of the most evil men in history, that is crossing the line. I don't care if it was Barack Obama, George Bush, Bill Clinton, or Ronald Reagan, that is crossing the line, the people we elect, no matter who they are and if you like them or not, none of our presidents...

2013 Thanksgiving Preparations

Posted 09-24-2012 at 01:30 PM by bigbearfla58

Monday, Septembear 24, 2012 It rained Saturday and Sunday so I decided to invite friends over for pumpkin crisp. I made this two years ago and it's been a big hit ever since.

Pumpkin Crisp Part One
Pumpkin Crisp Part Two

I use the base in part one and use the Barefoot Contessa's crumble topping makes a great crisp to serve family and friends for Thanksgiving dessert.

Do You Know Where Your Christmas Lists And Decorations Are Hiding?

Posted 09-18-2012 at 09:41 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Wow, let me blow the dust off the keyboard, it has been a long while since I have posted on my blog.
Mid-September, Halloween is in the stores and in the air, the first hints of Christmas in the retail world is now upon us. I feel a little behind in my Christmas preparation, I haven't even started doing my own Christmas list yet. We don't know what to get the kids yet, they are difficult for some reason without any items that really stick out this year. My wife, I don't know what she wants this year, I usually have my mind made up by now of what to get her.
My decorations are sitting down in the basement waiting for their 2012 unveiling, I know I need to replace items this year, I believe I have to replace at least 5 strands of white mini-lights among other things.
2012 could be a great Christmas season, I just need to get my act together or my decorating and shopping seasons could be running into the dreaded "last minute."

The World's Largest Christmas Party -- Again!

Posted 09-16-2012 at 11:20 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

Tucked away in a dark corner of the Merry Forums is a discussion area off-limits to most the merry faithful -- a private little get away for the Christmas Crew.

I set the area up years ago. I was attempting to follow the advice of forum managing webmasters who ran big communities. We weren't big, by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought we'd get there and we would need a place to discuss all the thorny issues of running a public gathering place.

Alas, our deliberations over forum member fights, spammers, grossly over-opinionated posters and other nasty elements so often associated with Internet communities never really took root in our crew areas. Folks at Christmas, it appears, are altogether too nice. By and large we don't have many problems to deal with.

So our crew area has become more of a giant brain-storming area for My Merry Christmas. Our prolific Christmas Crew -- the very cream of our membership, in fact -- come by when they...
