Don't Miss this Podcast

Posted 11-16-2013 at 03:25 AM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

For weeks now we've been working on the next episode of the Merry Podcast.

Quite honestly, it has made my Christmas of 2013 to do this.

We get lots of submissions year round from artists looking to get airplay on Merry Christmas Radio and Kringle Radio. Some of it is great, some not so great.

As we've looked to feature new artists and songs this year we have gathered more new music than we ever have before. I don't know why that is but there is just a bumper crop this year.

In fact, there's more music than we can fit in on just one podcast.

For a couple of weeks I've been whittling it down, trying to find the right mix to feature.

Quite by accident I noticed something today -- we have contributing artists from the USA, Canada, the UK, Austria, Japan and we even have a song highlighting Christmas of the American southwest.

In other words, these are diverse contributions and I think it represents...

Special Post Day 1- "The Journey"

Posted 11-11-2013 at 11:34 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

This is not my style, I like to post in the "privacy" of the blogs, but our most special friend would be most proud of me doing it this way. I am anxious, but it is my time to do a little extra for MMC.

It was over for most of the world, the greatest day of the year had come and gone. the wrapping paper still strewn on some floors across the country, and I am sure there were some lonely Christmas trees already on the sidewalk. I have a friend that is that way, you build up the hype and the fun just to throw it out the door as soon as Bing, Nat, and all the other crooners voices have not even finished echoing from the radio. It is not the end, but the beginning.

We may be sad at that time, but we know there are only 364 days to countdown to make the next year even better.

As we began that journey on the way Christmas 2013, the friendship here grows, we share our lives on The Countdown...

A Little April Fool's in November

Posted 11-03-2013 at 06:05 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

Some people will believe anything.

Today on Facebook, on a whim brought on only by a late Saturday night and an early Sunday morning, I posted this snippet:

Did you know that on this date in history the first artificial Christmas tree was found off the coast of Siliconia in 1855? Artificial Christmas trees became an American tradition when Woolworths began selling them to gypsies out of the back of a wagon in 1887.

That snippet came from the draft of a script I wrote more than two years ago. When I research a topic I will put a placeholder in italics and red colored text until I can find the "fact" I seek and replace it.

I must have been in a goofy mood or something when I wrote that and I found it funny this morning, so I just copied and pasted it as a Facebook status expecting somebody to speak up about the absurdity of artificial Christmas trees being "discovered".

To my surprise, within a few minutes the comment...

Smile, Though Your Heart is Breaking

My mother is dying.

It has taken me a lot to get to the point where I admit that.

I have written about her a great deal but here and on my personal site over the course of the last several years. Her journey has been a long one.

Over the past two months Mom has been in several hospitals and through two stints in a rehab facility. At every step of the way she has done nothing but decline.

Her health issues are complex and it seems trite now to boil it all down to dementia.

But dementia is not a cause of death...it is a symptom of winding down, of saying goodbye.

Recognizing all this is what leads me to admit that Mom is leaving us, and likely soon.

As a person of faith I am not uncomfortable with the concept of death. As we've explored together a bit this year with losing Louann how we deal with death is something individual to us all.

But as Mother dims for me I cannot help but...
