I hope everyone had a pleasant Thanksgiving meal and the opportunity to spend time with loved ones. While we begin this holiday season, we should really pause and be sure to give thanks not only to all of those brave volunteers, men and women, in our military who are stationed all over the world to ensure its safety and tranquility, but we should also remember their loved ones.

Just when one thinks things will calm down this year, another scandal, political event or weather phenomenon seems to thrust itself into the forefront and eclipses everything prior to it. There seems to be no shortage of tragedy, but being that it is a few days before Thanksgiving, a time meant for giving thanks for the good things in our lives, I decided to share some stories to make you smile.

It's hard to believe how the span of one generation can show such a marked decline in the integrity and character of our country especially its leaders both in government, academia and life. Forty years ago, we would never see the disrespect and lack of ethics proudly touted about in today's society. What in the world is happening? If you ask me, I think the world has lost its bloody mind.

I would say that this year I thought I saw everything weather-wise one could imagine, but Mother Nature seems destined to continue to outdo herself. Each month appears to have brought its own unique flair and just when it seemed like there was a month she could possibly disappoint, the earth moved, literally.

"There's more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy" is a quote from Hamlet in a conversation with Horatio in which he relates just seeing his father's ghost. I think it is a fitting way to begin this column just two days prior to Halloween, the night the veil between man and spirit is at its thinnest if you believe the Celtic people and ancient traditions.

If you are reading this with your cup of coffee or bowl of cereal, then one of two things have occurred. Either you missed the rapture yesterday and you are one of those remaining behind for the fiery conclusion, or Harold Camping is racking his brain to figure out why the Apocalypse let him down twice in one year.
Yesterday was October 21st, the date marking the second opportunity for the Rapture to occur according to Harold Camping who so far is 0-3 a score that is good for us, but not so good for his powers of prophecy.

There's an interesting site called Listverse that contains lists of all kinds pertaining to all types of subjects. I discovered while doing research on an article I saw on the Fox News website that mentioned a team of American and Russian scientists were joining forces in an attempt to track down the mythical Yeti or Abominable Snowman that supposedly lives and roams the mountainous regions of Asia which is quite a large part of the continent in actuality.

I had the pleasure of doing the Reader's Turn this week and I realized the question's details required more background on my part so I could answer the possible inquiries it could generate. If you look back or ahead to the Reader's Turn on the Spotlight Page and read the question it will help you with what I'm writing.

October is my favorite month of the year. It's National Magic Month. This month was selected to honor magic and magicians whose profession is probably the oldest in the world.

There is a saying that time flies when you are having fun, and I must concur that this is true. It seems like just yesterday we brought home this bundle of joy named Kathryn. It's hard to believe that was almost four years ago and how fast time has passed since her first day with us.
I still remember seeing her in the bassinet when they brought her into our room after the nurses took care of her that evening in October when she was born. She was so content and happy to be with us as we were with her.
