Battle of the beacons: Rudolph vs. church

December 6, 2014

When I was growing up, one of the hallmarks of Christmas was watching the animated “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” on TV.

Yes, it’s pretty antiquated now, but, sadly, so am I.

When I was kid, there were no VCRs, DVD players or TiVo.

No, back in the day, if you wanted to watch “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” you had to watch it the old-fashioned way – on network television.

A place in the sun…

December 6, 2014

Perhaps the most nagging question left unanswered after five wonderful days in San Diego is this: Where could San Diegans choose to vacation that would rival the wonderment available year-round in their own backyards?

It is a magical place by any measure, whether one is seeking the grandeur of nature, man-made attractions or a culture where community pride assured the natural beauty of beaches long before zoning laws decreed so.

Enjoy Dutch amaryllis

December 6, 2014

In preparation for the holidays, nurseries stock and sell amaryllis bulbs.

First, you should know that the bulb forced for holiday blooms is a Dutch amaryllis, which differs from the plant called hardy amaryllis. Hardy types are perennials and wonderful additions to gardens, but they are not the flowers sold for December bloom.

Motivation in high school came in many forms.

Add cocoa

In your November 2014 Prime booklet, you have printed recipes submitted by several people. On page 28, the chocolate was omitted in the Chocolate Meringue Pie recipe.

Now, I am wondering how much chocolate to use and whether to use dark or light cocoa or unsweetened bar chocolate.

Don’t text and fly

Lee Jordan had just taken his 15-year-old daughter, Montana, to get her learner’s permit when she got behind the wheel.

He was in the passenger seat and told me he almost had a heart attack when he saw her put her cell phone between her knees.

He said she told him it was okay, because she had the volume turned off and had it on vibration because she still wanted to see who sent a message.

Like, can u talk? Lol!!

November 29, 2014

This may make no sense to you, but I really would like to know what happened to our American English language.

In barely a decade it seems we aren’t communicating with each other as we once did, and when we do, the method of speaking seems to be in disjointed signals.
