Playlist - Mistletoe Mix/Greasy Skillet - December 15, 2012

Posted 06-19-2013 at 05:47 PM by RadioJonD (Tinseled Musings from a Yule Tuned Mind)

Mistletoe Mix/Greasy Skillet - December 15, 2012

Like last year we will feature two all Christmas shows this week and next! These shows are two shows in one, hence the phrase "The Mistletoe Mix Edition of the Greasy Skillet".

"Mistletoe Mix" is a program heard online at www.merrychristmasradio.com. Unlike "Greasy Skillet" which runs on broadcast radio station WAAM in Ann Arbor (and online at www.waamradio.com), "MM" doesn't have commercial breaks. So, listeners to "MM" on MCR get extra content to round their hour! The playlist below will reflect the extra songs with a line break from the usual "GS" playlist. Cornfused? Think how I must feel!

GS December 15, 2012 Hour One

Christmas Time's A-Comin' - Buck Owens & The Buckaroos
Merry Christmas From the Family - Robert Earl Keen
Happy Holidays Y'all - Robert Earl Keen
Santa Didn't Bring Us Squat - Shelby Lynn
Merry Christmas To All - Al Dexter...

Great Women

Posted 06-01-2013 at 10:53 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

As spoken of in the most recent podcast these past two months have been a time of great discovery for me concerning my family history.

It has come about due to a summer activity for my teenage daughters called "trek". Trek is the reenactment of the pioneer trail.

Every July 24th there is a state holiday in Utah called Pioneer Day. It celebrates the pioneers of 1847 who first came to settle these valleys. Many of my ancestors on my father's side were amongst them.

I had no idea, honestly, of how many of them there were.

Family History is a big deal to those of the Mormon faith and though I never really thought or heard much of my father's family while growing up it wasn't because they weren't important. It was that their "work" -- or historical information -- was pretty much done generations before I was born. I spent much of my youth and my young adult years discovering my mother's side of the family (none of whom were Mormon). ...

I Am Not Afraid

Posted 04-15-2013 at 09:01 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Here I sit, just hours after what looks to be a terrorist act at the Boston marathon, and I am saddened by the carnage, injuries, and casualties but angry that this has happened again.
My adult life has been riddled with terrorism, school shootings, and other disturbing issues caused by sick individuals. Boston is a city I love, a city I have loved since I was a young child when I would go see Boston Harbor, New England Aquarium, Boston Museum of Science, Fenway Park for many Red Sox games, and TD Garden for the Bruins. I have walked many miles in Boston, which is a great walking city, and I am sure I have walked by the area that was bombed more than once.
The innocence that once was part of this city, state, country is gone due to other acts such as the first WTC bombing in '93, Oklahoma City, and of course 9/11. After 9/11, I lived in fear of being involved in an attack. As the years have gone into the rearview, I can see that is no way to live, in fear of what you can't...

"You found your tail..."

Posted 04-10-2013 at 09:11 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I have been putting this off for a little while, due to lack of time and the amount of crying I have done since we lost our beloved CM3.
She was such a beautiful soul, not a mean bone in her body and she cared and adored for everyone here more than most could know.
Louann and I joined within a week of each other looking for pretty much the same thing, relief from the post-Christmas blues. I was looking for something to ease my mind from the end of the Christmas season 2009 and I finally decided to join MMC, I never planned to stay more than a few days but the magnetism of this place and the people here made it hard to leave.
Louann was one of the first persons to reach out to me like she did with so many others here, we were new here and we both stuck to playing on the "Fun & Games" boards for months and we chatted quite often especially after her stepson was diagnosed with lymphoma, she was so scared at that time and needed some support, I helped...

A Wonderful Life

Posted 04-07-2013 at 10:33 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

I continue to have many conversations with folks about Caninemom3. It never ceases to amaze me, this power of community here.

I have some concerns though. As I observed earlier there are different ways we all deal with death. I recognize we can't see it all the same.

I also recognize that there is no real way to "make it better".

Through other sad experiences I've learned that mourning is a process and we need to go through it, awful as it is.

There are those who are telling me that some feel now a need to take a break from MMC in light of these recent events.

I understand if you feel this way.

But please reconsider your actions.

One of the things that has been suggested to me by many is that we'll never be able to replace Louann.

Well...of course not. Why should we even think of such a thing?

I can't help but pondering on Clarence's words to George in It's a Wonderful...
