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")...

20 Years, Baby, 20 Years

Posted 05-24-2011 at 12:41 AM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

I was at dinner the other night and had a rare opportunity to advise my 21-year old nephew.

As he approaches his college graduation he is, as many often are, lost in terms of what to do next. It is not as if jobs are falling off of trees and after years of pouring it to the coals to get through school he wants a change but just isn't quite ready to declare what he wants to be when he grows up.

That makes him absolutely normal, by the way. And I told him so. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

But I did give him this advice: never, ever trust an employer -- and always have something on the side to do. Something you can call your own.

"Oh?" he said. "You mean like that Christmas thing you've been doing the last couple of years?"

My sister -- his mother -- chortled a bit. I gently reminded him that I've been doing this "Christmas thing" for 20 years now.

He gave me a blank stare....
