Even when my Granny was in her  80's, she insisted on cooking Christmas dinner.   Granny didn't have a nice modern stove, not that she wasn't offered one.   If we brought up buying her a new stove, we'd get The Look.  
My Granny, who lived in the white house in McHue, Arkansas, cooked on a wood stove until she died in 1971.   The food that came out of that stove was pure delight!   Everything was perfect.  I can't get everything perfect even with my modern appliances so you can imagine my amazement at that wood stove.  Granny was less than 5 ft. and weighed about 85 pounds and ate like a horse.   Granny was, simply put, precious.
She was famous for her 5 layer coconut cake that was so light, it about floated off the plate.  You had to hold it down with your fork.  
These kinds of memories keep all the Christmases I've had alive to warm my heart through all my years.

Merry Christmas,

STOP !  Don't call a plumber just yet !
Is your toilet being sluggish and a few good plunges aren't helping? Don't call the plumber yet or purchase any expensive, harsh chemicals that will hurt your pipes. Here's what you do: For a toilet that's slow but not completely stopped up, pour one cup of white vinegar and one-half cup of baking soda in the toilet and swish it around until it fizzes quite dramatically. Give a few more plunges, and flush the toilet. The strong reaction between the vinegar and baking soda should clear the way.

Santa Strawberries Recipe

1 dozen strawberries (If you have more than two people, I'd double or triple the recipe !)
1 cup whipped cream a handful of chocolate sprinkles Directions:

Using a pairing knife, slice the leafy end off each strawberry so they stand up evenly.  Then slice the tip off to make a little hat.

Using a spoon or a large icing tip, place a large dollop (about 1-2 tsp) of whipped cream on top of the strawberry base.  Plop the little hat on top.  Add another small dollop of whipped cream to the tip of the hat to make a mock pom-pom.

Place two chocolate sprinkles in the Santas "face" for the eyes.  Using a toothpick, place two very small splotches of whipped cream down the front of the strawberry for buttons.

You're done!  It's that easy.  If you don't eat them right away, store them in the fridge to keep them cold.  Santa doesn't do well with heat.

Squigly's Christmas Jokes and Riddles

 A woman is paying for some Christmas gifts at Macy’s. As she reaches for her card, a TV remote control falls out of her purse. The sales clerk asks, “Do you always carry your TV remote?” “No.” the woman says, “But my husband refused to come shopping with me today. I figured this was a great way to pay him back.”

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12

Diamond Rio: In God We Still Trust -

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
