A Birthday Celebration

Posted 06-05-2011 at 07:06 AM by caninemom3

It is so hard to believe. My wonderful brother Andy's birthday is Monday, June 6. He would have been 65. Andy died when he was just 31 of an accidental drowning. There is not a day that has gone by I have not thought of him and missed him and pined for him. He was my best friend at the time. My big brother and my protector as well as confidant.

We had so many wonderful adventures together. The last Spring and Summer of his life Andy stayed with my husband, David, and I a great deal at our apartment. We didn't have a lot of money but whatever we had Andy was always welcomed to. David loved Andy as much as I did (still do). Very frequently that year when Andy would be staying with us on the weekend we would dine on baked potatoes with a variety of toppings. Andy never complained about the limited choices for food. He was grateful.

On the hot summer days that year, 1977, Andy and I would behave like little kids - we would actually chase each other...

Tornado Nightmare

Posted 06-02-2011 at 10:54 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I write this tonight as exhausted as I am, but an emotional wreck. As some if not all of you know by now my town was hit by a tornado, at most the damage was 1.5 miles away at it farthest, 2 houses down the closest. I was not home at the time it happened, I was at work when I heard of a tornado warning, I wasn't thinking anything of it at the time, in fact a few co-workers and myself were joking about it. The upper management called a meeting to explain what was going on, and what we were to do if we got word a tornado was bearing down on us. 20 minutes later we get the word to evacuate the staff and customers to the back of the store. I had tried to call my wife before that to warn her of a tornado warning had been posted, I tried to get through but all I got was a recorded message saying all circuits were busy, until I got through and left a message on our voicemail. We were standing in the back of the store, when we started getting rumors from people with cellphone texts that Monson...

Lost Treasure in the Woods

Posted 05-30-2011 at 09:55 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I was doing some random Google searches tonight, as I do sometimes just to see what I could learn about the world we live in. I have the thirst for knowledge of little known facts, days of yore, and history of things that went on in my area. I live in an old New England mill town, and the history you see everyday when you drive down Main Street of this Rockwellian little town puts you back in time. We have the Old white church built in the 1800's on the hill over looking the town, we have buildings made of granite from our old granite quarries. The store fronts are basically the downstairs to houses or apartments. The old abandoned mills still dot the landscape, they have long since fallen into disrepair, but to see the history of the buildings puts me in awe. When I first started dating my wife, she told me of rumors of an old Santa's Land type of theme park that was abandoned before it ever opened, I thought that was so cool but I have never heard of anything about the long gone theme...

Filling the Christmas Cracker

Posted 05-24-2011 at 12:53 PM by elf bazaar

A little dream of mine has always been to have my own range of bespoke Christmas Crackers, to those of you who do not know about Christmas Crackers or their vital role on The Christmas Dinner table in just about every house in the the UK, I shall explain via a little bit of cut and pasting....Christmas crackers or bon-bons are an integral part of Christmas celebrations in the United Kingdom and Commonwealth countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa. They are also popular in Ireland. A cracker consists of a cardboard tube wrapped in a brightly decorated twist of paper, making it resemble an oversized sweet-wrapper. The cracker is pulled by two people, and, much in the manner of a wishbone, the cracker splits unevenly. The split is accompanied by a small bang produced by the effect of friction on a chemically impregnated card strip (similar to that used in a cap gun).
Crackers are also a part of New Year celebrations in Russia (where they are called "хлопушка")...
