20 years from now, that will not be funny.
A 19th Amendment Centennial Moment:
The 19th Amendment was first introduced to Congress in 1878, yet it was not approved by Congress until 1919 – 41 years later.

Mrs.V. is in the kitchen making keto friendly cookies using almond and coconut flours and artificial sweeteners.

Our younger daughter and her husband arrive tomorrow. Monday night we will have friends over for a big holiday dinner.

Our family will open gifts Christmas Eve. Then Christmas morning Mrs. V. and our daughter and son in law will fly to California to visit Mrs. V's sister.

I get to stay home and take care of 3 cats and 3 rats while eating up the holiday meal leftovers. ;)

I just survived Fred Meyer on the Saturday before Christmas in the afternoon when everyone else was out. I think turn signals on carts would be a good idea...

people don’t use turn signals when driving cars, why would you expect them to do so when pushing a shopping cart?

I've alwasy found the Carol of the Bells to be an interesting tune... its basically an aggressive hymn. It's like the marching and Battle song of the forces of Santa sweeping across the planet enforcing the laws of Joy, Merriment and Mince pies. Or else.

That was great Suranis, thanks for posting it. My 1st MrDaisy was in the Army Band and stationed for a time at the tri-service School of Music in Norfolk VA. The school staff always did (and probably still do) a Christmas concert every year. The Carol of the Bells was always my favorite! :daydream:

I went to a large high school in the city. There were about 4,500 students, so we had a large choir and orchestra. Every year before the Christmas break, they put on the full Handel’s Messiah. They did several afternoon performances so that the entire school got to hear it.

I used to know every word and could sing it, but respiratory problems ended the singing.

I really wish they would replace freaking Mariah Carey with this version. It's a little bit creepy...

Thanks guys

I tend to listen to random pieces of music through the day, and I randomly cane across this instrumental of "we three kings" Superb, and the Violinist is extraordinary.



And this guy did a medley of Christmas songs from the 1700s till now
