A Natural Time to Reflect. Another year comes to an end and it's a natural time to reflect. In fact, a little reflection is a good thing. What were the winners in 2014? Did you reach your business and personal goals? If not, why not?   Active Rain, videos, my SOI, and passion for customer service...
Time to Recycle That Christmas Tree OK, I admit, with all of the excitement and joy of the season, it's hard to let Christmas go.  But once it's gone - like really, really gone - it's time to get rid of that tree!  As I mentioned in an earlier post, many cities in Clark County offer curbside recy...

The Cioppino broth is simmering and the Prosecco is chilling. Eight people will eat at our tables, eight next door at my parents home. We are looking forward to the next few days of celebration and sharing. Merry Christmas Eve to YOU! 
Have Fun at Home - Make it Safe and Warm     My husband and I enjoy watching the National Lampoon movie "Christmas Vacation" as a silly break from the holiday craziness.

I took it on Christmas morning, three years ago, while waiting for the rest of the household to wake.  Dawn and dusk are my favorite times of the day, and prove to be the most spiritual. It's hard to behold such a sight and not feel the wonder and joy. On this p...

What a week - and I’m missing my Rain time.  We’ve been to Bend, and back, for a granddaughter’s first piano recital and a grandson’s first play.
