Monday Musings - December 13, 2010

1. Less than two weeks to go until Christmas and the panic is rising in the shoppers minds.

2. Holiday parties, friends, family, and new friends. We are very blessed to have so many people to enjoy the season with.

3. We saw our first snow flakes of the season on Friday, it seemed the entire region took a pause to both enjoy their light, fluffy beauty and to remember the hammering we took last winter. We have already been suffering through mid-February like temperatures.

4. Asked to provide one word to describe the holiday season, what would you say?

5. Here is something that bothers me--and I have not yet been able to confirm it--but our Congress is continuing to add pork to the budget bills while at the same time freezing the pay of Federal workers. Wouldn't it make sense to stop the pork as well to bring the deficit under control? One rumor indicated that Nancy Pelosi asked for $5 million for funding renovation of an old military facility for commercial use. If the American public is serious about reducing the deficit, why isn't Congress?

6. This season makes everyone a little more edgy--take a breath before you respond, it will make the conversation easier.

7. Promises. Christmas was the fulfillment of a promise made thousands of years before it happened.

8. With all of the emphasis on football, I wonder if anyone has noticed the Penguins (hockey) have a 12 game winning streak going and Sidney Crosby (their captain) has an 18 game point streak going on as well?

9. Have you looked at where the products you are using are made?  I think I may begin boycotting items "Made in China." But I worry that I won't be able to buy anything at all. (That may not be a bad thing)
