    Making Do at Christmas

    This Christmas is probably the hardest we have had it in this country since the great depression for a portion of our society. For some, the unemployment that was stopped at the end of November was a major hardship. How do you have Christmas with out money? This is a worry for many who have never had to do it with out spending lots. You make the Merry part of Christmas the most important part. Here are some tips and recipes.

    A Happy Christmas Story

    The Christmas season in the year 2000 was filled with extra anticipation.  No one knew what to expect from the President Elect whose victory had the most sober observers of public affairs emptying their caches of superlatives to describe what might be in store for the nation.  One Liberal wag penned that it was an event as momentous as Caesar crossing the Rubicon.  A Conservative former Congressman predicted that every value of his party was in play.  Everyone had an opinion on the impending Administration of President Bernie Sanders.

    Ode to Assange

    You've altered each and every day

    For the best part of a month,

    With Diane Sawyers' Hair,

    But without all the funk!

    Did you get your invitation, because I am sure I sent it to you all and I sent it out at least a month ago, so there is no real excuse for you not to show up. If you didn't get the invite, I am so sorry, I probably just messed up your address, but don't worry, there is always next year. It's casual, don't dress up, there will be Foosball tournaments and drinking too!!! Oh the menu, you all are going to love the menu, I designed it just for you! For the time being we will leave our political differences behind us, okay, and just party and eat.

    I Believe...For Now

    I believe in karma, and that what goes around
    comes around

    I believe that when I find a $20 bill on the ground
    I can take it
    as long as no one’s around

    I believe that there are good people doing hard jobs
    and I can trust in them
    to know more than I do

    I believe that there are some bad people doing easy work
    and I can trust them
    as far as I can throw them

    I believe that I can tell the difference between good people and bad
    and I know who to back
    and who to toss aside

    Who cares?

    We live

    in our red white and blue

    hugging and burning

    ranting and waving

    too often not contemplating

    or looking to tomorrow

    we just borrow

    We live

    with a sense of sorrow

    in our rag-tag teams

    agreeing and fighting

    kissing and biting

    too seldom truly thinking

    or trying to help out

    we just bout

    We live

    and forget that we pass

    as all things must do

    the scraps and me and you

    we die too too

    too eager to make a point

    instead of making a difference

    An Ode to Sarah by Murkowski


    I sit at the bar down from your house, why?

    I can feel that Miller comin’ round

    I go to put my arm around you

    And you give me a look like I’m way out of bounds

    I write at least one haiku a day. Here's a few of my favorites.

     "Wearing a sweatshirt,
    Nursing a cup of coffee,
    Reading the Funnies."
