  • On this Christmas Eve, I imagine many families will gather tonight for that annual tradition of reading “The Night Before Christmas.”  It’s one of my favorite traditions from my childhood.  Here is a rendition of the timeless classic called, “The Farmer’s Night Before Christmas.”  Enjoy!


    ‘Twas the night before Christmas when down on the farm
    The animals were resting in the warm, cozy barn.

  • Years ago I read about a college student in the middle of final exams, distracted and distraught because her mother was ill and she wanted to be home with her.

    The mom assured her daughter that she was fine, that she would be OK. 

    After her last exam, the college student raced home, and as she walked in to see her mom, her mom opened her eyes, smiled -- and died.

    It was the day before the young woman’s 21st birthday.

  • Well, my friends, here we are. Right here, once again in the middle of the holiday season. Thanksgiving is barely out of sight and Christmas is fast approaching. It’s hard to imagine that 2015 is almost in the rear-view mirror. But, alas, we must move on and, frankly, a delicious time is quickly approaching.
