  • Hello once again, my friends. Here we are, staring at Halloween and cooler weather is upon us. And frankly, it doesn’t bother me one bit.

Oh, and I also make sure to write a chili article at the beginning of every year, just so everyone can get in the mood before cold weather hits.

  • Have you ever cried out for help and no one answered?  My daughter was upset with me a few nights ago.  We had gone through our nightly routine, and I had put her to bed and moved onto something else.  Not long after, I heard her crying…really crying.  So I went into her room and found the reason.  She needed me to do something (probably adjust the volume on her music), and she called out for me, but then no one came.
