A perfect gift

In general we're quite fortunate. We don't have much to want for. We manage to keep things simple and while we have more stuff than we should we're in the culling process. However one area of frustration has persisted. In the list of life's many needs popcorn is writ large with permanent marker. The problem is finding a reasonable way to make popcorn that doesn't destroy the environment along the way. And the added benefit would be to cut off those wonderful preservatives that are used to embalm pre-packaged popcorn.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night...

No doubt about it this is a tough year for celebrating. Personally we have so much to be thankful for. Professionally it would be hard to figure out how one could be on a better track. At the same time it is hard to ignore the collective concern and the grave economic and environmental situations we face as a country, a people, and a planet.

Personal responsibility

One of the refrains I see from time to time about the current economic mess we are slogging through is that it comes down to personal responsibility. I am of two minds on this. Sure everything is personal responsibility. Am I in a better position because I've made good decisions, dare I say better decisions than some others? You bet. All and all we've been and so far continue to be in a better position than most in this day.

A holiday story

Between creating a few dozen websites, making several coast-to-coast trips and having a generally great year the holiday season somehow snuck up and is here already. The season of holiday bazars is upon us and it is tough to enter any sort of store without hearing holiday music floating through the air.

Our weekend got off to a great start with the storytelling of Christopher Leebrick. In an appearance at the Ada Community Library in Star Leebrick told the classic christmas tale of How the Grinch Stole Christmas and several other stories from around the world. If you're looking for a unique and wonderful gift for children of any age be sure to consider a CD from this award-winning North-westerner.
