Merry Christmas.

It's all good, but I'd prefer not to hear the same old tired Christmas songs over and over and over again.

"The New Faces of Caregiving"

"People across the country take up the challenge. Here are their stories"

"(Video) Twenty-eight-year-old Hannah Roberts is taking a year off from medical school to care for her mother, Karla Johnson, who was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer last spring. She is one of about 10 million millennial caregivers.

"Hannah Roberts, 28, has often logged in to CancerCare's support group since her mother, Karla Johnson, 62, was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer last spring. 'I don't think many people in my age group have experienced anything like this, so that can be isolating,' she says. 'It's hard to see them on Facebook going on with normal lives.'

"She has taken a year's leave after her third year at Columbia University Medical School, moving from New York into her parents' home in the Boston suburbs to care for Johnson. She drives her mother to medical appointments, organizes nursing visits and helps prepare meals, while her dad has taken on more tasks at the architectural firm the couple founded."

I think most of the Irregulars have been or are in this situation today.  Perhaps if I were younger, I could've done more for my mom.

Four for Fridays!

Happy Friday the 13th to everyone. I am really sorry about last week I had a really bad cold and it is still hanging on a little bit but I didn't want to miss getting the questions out this week. Here they are-

1) Did your parents ever forget your birthday?

2) Do you feel like when you are talking to someone that they are not listening to you?

3) Do you believe in superstitions?

4) Would you rather listen to music or watch t.v.?

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

"Fans of the Ellen DeGeneres show are getting the chance to go home for the holidays thanks to SC Johnson.

"Fisk Johnson, CEO of SCJ, was in the audience of the Ellen show Wednesday and presented $500 Visa gift cards to every member of the audience as part of the company’s partnership with DeGeneres.

"'SC Johnson gave my audience $500 to go home for the holidays! Let SC Johnson’s family bring yours together too, making life better for the next generation in ways only a family company can, because that’s what families do,' a post on the show’s website reads.

"There is also a chance to win a $1,000 and additional $500 gift cards as well. The deadline for the $500 gift cards is November 13 at 11:59 p.m."

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my Chilly Willy, and otherwise, friends!  Many trees are now denuded of leaves while some stubborn ones hang on. Oak and Beech are known for this.  Sometimes, in the middle of winter, you'll look up and see an oak  hanging onto a mass of leaves, now snow covered and iced over.  That;s why oak wood costs more than most: density.  Oak wood is extremely strong because it takes forever to grow,  unlike the pine you'll find at most home improvement stores.  ( I remember when there still were lumber yards.)

We're supped to get a good soaking, especially tomorrow.  That's what "they" said.  Temperatures will continue to drop like leaves.  Or not.  When you work for a weather service, accuracy doesn't matter.  Ratings, yes.  Accuracy, who cares?

What the heck has become of the Green Bay Packers?  The Carolina Panthers de-pants them on national television.  How embarrassing.  The Packers have a chance to redeem themselves this Sunday, November 15, at noon, at home, against the Detroit Lions.

In the Irregular Football League, the standing are thus:

The Mighty Bears continue their tyranny of the league.

In real life, I scanned Google News looking for some good news,  Ha!

I don't have the stomach for it anymore.  First was an 8-year-old charged with beating a 1-year-old to death.  Then a 9-year-old murdered in an alley because of his father's gang affiliation. Then another one here.  Then there.  It just became too daunting and depressing to read the news.  A society that produces such monsters must be ill, or at least warped.

We've already lost a couple of generations, and it just gets worse and worse.  We may be at a turning point where we can decide where our society goes.  We send billions of dollars worth of military equipment. Then we send billions more in the form of "foreign aide."  How about Home Aide?  How about remembering where all those dollars come from?  Our pockets!  And we're sick of the government using us as ATMs.

Oh dear! I'm sorry.  I lost my temper. I shouldn't do that.  My blogs are for love and peace.  Anyone is inviting to take a read and make a comment, if so disposed.  We've built up a little of a family that way.

How much more can we stand of this? Ask 

Watch out for the slippery leaves and slippery children.  The Racine Holiday Parade is downtown this Sunday.  Say hi to Santa for me and ask him when he's going to pay my bill.  I love you all.      

Question for Drew

Hope this is allowed.. I don't know any other way to contact him.

 I have some old vinyl albums. Mostly rock. A few old ones from my Dad. Looking to get rid of them. (sell?) or giveaway if they aren't worth anything. My email address here isn't valid ( can't get it changed for some reason) Can be contacted on FB by either you or THB if interested in titles. 
If you know anyone that would be looking if not you. I'm sure you have most every album ever made! 

Or anyone else interested or know anyone.. I'm not fussy. Just don't want to dump a possible (lol) goldmine at Goodwill. 

Sheriff.. you can delete if this is not allowed.. I will understand. Just trying to get the message to them.
