Migraines, Memories And Musings

Posted 09-04-2010 at 06:49 AM by caninemom3

As I lay here this morning typing, some of you may think I am crazy. You are probably correct. ( I actually did undergo shock therapy at one time when I was just 19 years old !) I have a migraine this morning which awakened me at 6:30 a.m. EST. Now this is nothing new for me but some of you may be wondering why I would post in my blog when I am in such discomfort. I don't really have an answer, I just have thoughts (as well as pain) in my head and MUST get them out. I have had these monstrous headaches since I was a small child. The only difference between now and then is that physicians know what they are. When I was a kid in the 1960s I was given aspirin by my very concerned mom, which of course did not help. The headaches at that time just had to pass on their own. I have had a LOT of these lately which is not unusual. I seem to go through a period where I have them for perhaps several days to weeks and then they stop. When I had them as a child my dear mother would try her very best...

The World Needs More Christmas Spirit

Posted 09-03-2010 at 10:45 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

As I lay in bed, I should be going to sleep, but I have something or many things on my mind that are bothering me tonight. I am so depressed and angered at what has been going on in the world and in my own neck of the woods that makes no sense lately. I will start with the story that really got me thinking about that woman who had a cup of acid thrown in her face for apparently being attractive, why would someone do something like that to another human being? I cannot grasp hurting someone at all, and to do something that could change someones physical appearance tears me apart. I cannot fathom what that poor woman is going through right now, not knowing who to trust that is walking toward you. My thoughts and prayers go out to her. Watching people drive lately has also been a nightmare, I nearly got into an accident today because someone pulled out in front of me, and my car went into a skid because I was so close when they pulled out. I saw someone pass another car and then slam on their...

Christmas, Jesus, Rhodesian Ridgebacks And Such

Posted 09-03-2010 at 09:42 AM by caninemom3

There are so many thoughts swirling in my head today, I don't know where to begin ! It is finally September, which means the Autumn equinox will be here shortly ! I am so excited ! I am going to try later today to get all of my Fall/Halloween indoor decorations out. I like to have my decorations (particularly Halloween and Christmas) up a long time beforehand so I can enjoy them longer. I can't wait to see the changing colors of the leaves and to hear Christmas Carols again on the music channel I have when they are "officially" allowed !!! September 1 starts the season my first husband and I used to call Christween, as I have posted in other places on the MMC site. I also think part of my excitement this year is due to MMC itself.

When I come to the site, it is like I am leaving behind any problems, any stress and any sense of negativity, like I am entering "Christmas Land' itself. Everyone here has been so amazingly kind to me, it does make me cry sometimes....

My life and the book of eli

Posted 08-31-2010 at 01:10 PM by caninemom3

I actually feel inspired today. I have felt that way for a few days. In my last blog I was so sad but today I feel good, hopeful and I am not sure really why. You are going to think this is odd, but I believe this newfound hopefulness is all because of a movie I watched. It is called [I]The Book Of Eli. [/I]It stars Denzel Washington as Eli and the best actor to ever play a villain, Gary Oldman. I don't want to give away too much here in case any of you want to see it. It is about Eli who is a nomad, walking steadily to the West. In the beginning of the movie it is made clear there has been an apocalyptic event and the world is no longer like it has been. Money is not of value any longer but things like playing cards and lighters are !! Eli is on a mission from God and it is his mission to take his Book to the West for God's purpose. Though it is a fairly violent movie at times (which I hate, especially the first few minutes) it still inspires. As Eli continues on his quest to deliver...

Christmas Kin

Updated 08-29-2010 at 06:59 PM by Jeff Westover



The brilliant sun-kissed afternoon of a summer’s day in swanky Newport, Rhode Island is hardly the backdrop you would imagine for the latest chapter in an ongoing Christmas story.

It happened today, the first full day of a cruise my wife and I are on up the New England coastline. As the early evening approaches and we are now “out at sea”, swaying gently back and forth as we move on now to Boston, I am feeling a sense of Christmas not commonly felt outside of Christmas Eve itself.
Today was the day and Newport was the place where I finally met an old and dear friend I had up to that point only known online, a relationship born right here on My Merry Christmas.

The only downside I can see to running a community on the Internet is the fact that I may never get to actually meet, face to face, those I share Christmas with. But there are a few like-minded...
