Don't hang electric lights on your aluminum Christmas tree!! Did you ever have one of those silvery metal trees?

Gina Six Kudo I still have the original one, in its original packaging that my parents bought when they were first married. Mom found a new color wheel light for me about 10 years ago. I love it.

Is the saddest thing in America the reality of unfairness? A 16-year-old, who unapologetically killed 4 innocent motorists while he was extremely intoxicated--was just let off because he is a victim of "affluenza" (being too rich).

Dee Douglas wow. so sad. what does this teach our youth?
Paul Keller An outrage.
Paul Nakamura So sick! Why would they let this boy go free!? Yes, it clearly is an outrage!
Debbie Cook Shaeffer I wanted to be sick when I heard about this this morning.  Ken Stout What gets me is that a judge bought into it. Either the lawyer is very good at his job or the judge is very gullible.

I think his parents should be held liable. From what I'm reading, they let him get away with stuff, and encourage him to "fix" situations with MONEY!
Marilyn Barranti
That is crazy, he is never going to change if his parents just bail him out every time !! Maybe he would have a chance if they lock up the parents!
Julie Hansen
No wayCathi Nordin What?!!! And this is fair to who?
Juanita Velasco "Afluenza" my foot! How about some justice??

One of my FAVES is a World Premiere, born right here in San Jose...

Steampunk meets Madonna? The amazing San Jose Rep created its very own musical adaptation of THE SNOW QUEEN. Fantastic songs & costumes--and doesn't the Queen look like Madge? See it through Dec. 22nd. (I loved it!)

'Gotta hand it to Carrie Underwood for giving it her all in "The Sound of Music Live" last night. But I guess I was expecting "more" from it. Was I the only one who kept dozing off throughout its 3-hour broadcast?

Cathi Nordin Lol! Carrie Underwood was really sweet, but the movie just wasn't the same as the original version. I don't think this version even comes close to becoming a classic! My granddaughters, ages 8 and 10, also didn't find it very appealing. We're going to watch the original version...
Dee Douglas i think that carrie is just a little too demure to match the chutzpah and forwardness of Julie Andrews. I always find it odd that people want to make 'do-overs' of such classic movies and music. Although I love Carrie Underwood and most of her endeavors, the 'new' Sound of Music felt more like a high school play.

Mary Elizabeth Thinking of you Jona, I know it's hard, this is my second Christmas without my mom.
Cecilia Clark First year for me, too. Peace and Love, Jona Denz-Hamilton
Gina Six Kudo I'm with you Jona, I'm sorry again for your loss, I know it's hard to deal with, but at least we know we were loved.
Steve Alt Jona...lost my grand Daughter when she was almost 4 months old this year so your post is MOST meaningful! Thank You!!!
Jona Denz-Hamilton Steve Alt: My heart goes out to you. I know the pain of losing a young family member too. I hope your family is finding good ways to cope. Bless you.
Steve Alt Thanks Jona...your post helps and all the best to you this holiday.
Marsha Zanetti Kane will keep you in my thoughts, jona... the loss of a mother is hard..love your post...
Carolyn Pranke ((Jona)), my parents passed a while ago, it does take a long time to adjust. However, I recently reconnected with first cousins I hadn't seen in 30 years. So, when one door closes, another one does open....
EMaree Carvao Alper Thank you, Jona! You too!
Vera Gibson Amen
Becky Obbema So sorry Jona, it's been a rough and rocky road this year. Be kind to yourself this holiday season.
Dee Douglas Hugs. Though it can't take the place of your mom, know that you have friends and family around you that love you so much. Take time for yourself to grieve when you need to and allow the good thoughts of others to help fill the void.
Ken Stout I lost my dad to colon and liver cancer so I know how much that sucks.
Lorraine Macias Mendoza Jona, thanks. It's been hard. Lost my Dad in 97, and my Mom this last September . I know you know how I'm feeling.
"Hugs " but our parents are forever in our hearts and so many memories to remember all the love
( but it still hurts)
Doris Dorn yes, these firsts are always so dang hard.
Ivy Daley Jona, I know, I lost my dad this year. Thanksgiving was strange without him
Sandi Stramback Photos are such a wonderful link to our memories of days past ... Every Holiday is hard when you lose a loved one. Miss my Son.
Jona Denz-Hamilton Sandi Stramback: Oh, the unthinkable. I wish I had words to ease the pain. I'm sorry.

The TV news is going on about how COLD it's getting here this week, upper 20s starting tomorrow night. LOL--the Nat'l Weather Service is referring to Chicago's nearly identical forecast as "unseasonably MILD!"
My forecast: Fuzzy socks!

'Can't wait to see the media showing of the world premiere of The SNOW QUEEN at the San Jose Rep Wednesday. It's billed as having an original pop rock score, alluring ballads, and urban steam punk flair--too cool! What would Hans Christian Andersen say?
