This has been an interesting winter compared to the last few which could probably be rated as busts.We have gone from having barely any snow the past few years to having a more normal Pennsylvania winter this year, but apparently for many they either have short memories repressing winters past in favor of the warm winters the last few years.Other than one or two years, most of the winters I can remember as a Pennsylvania native were quite snowy so I'm not sure what the difference is between then and now unless more people from the Sunbelt have migrated to our area which I find quite unlikel

The story of Noah's Ark has always captured my imagination just like it has millions of children and adults around the world. The idea that a massive flood destroyed all life on the planet save for those who were warned by God of the coming catastrophe sparks the imaginations and faiths of people in all walks of life. It's a story of strength, character and trust that has endured for millennia.The story also transcends many cultures which have their own versions of the flood tale.

I have been interested in games and gaming for a long time.I loved playing board games as a child and even to this day I can always be counted upon to play a game if someone asks me.

The Bigfoot world is buzzing again with news that a Bigfoot was allegedly killed by Bigfoot hunter Rick Dyer. It was revealed in a news story this week that Dyer claimed to have shot and killed the creature by nailing some pork chops from Walmart to a treeand when the big guy showed up, he shot and killed it.
Now he is preparing to take the body on a world tour.This would be a momentous feat and worldwide news if not for one small issue. Dyer has a career credibility problem when it comes to Sasquatch.

I am sure you have heard this several times already, but welcome to 2014. Just when I got used to writing 2013 on my checks, now I have to shift gears and write 2014. It is amazing how force of habit can cause us to make simple administrative errors such as writing the wrong year on checks for a few days, but eventually we learn to adapt and all is well.

By now the holiday season is in full swing and many of us are visiting friends and relatives, shopping, dining out and other similar activities.This season is also one of generosity and benevolence as people are more inclined to want to help their fellow brothers and sisters who may need support.That being said, it is also the time for scam artists and con men to attempt to line their pockets with other's money. Don't be a victim and just keep these simple tips in mind as you enjoy the holidays.

In a few short days, Christmas arrives and it is really hard to believe it has come so soon. If it seems faster than normal, it is because this is one of those years in which Thanksgiving was as late as it could be making the Christmas season a short 26 days from the turkey feast day.
For those who have to make the time to go shopping for Christmas, the lack of extra time does make it difficult to fit everything in sometimes. When I was in college many years ago, my brother Jeff and I would shop together. It was our tradition all those years ago to shop on Black Friday.

Unlike the past few years, this winter has definitely started on a good note if you are a snow lover.Already two weeks into December and we have had at least three or four storms to contend with each of which has produced a mixture of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain.I guess we could say it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas to shamelessly lift an old cliché.

One of the best parts of the Christmas season is the nostalgic television specials that many of us still gather around to view in our living rooms each year. These shows reach children of all ages and I cannot recall a year I have not watched those familiar programs like "Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer," "Frosty the Snowman" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town."
