I’m a fan Fridays!

Oh, I love Christmas!  And, I love movies!  So, surely it will come as no surprise to anyone that I love Christmas movies.  Well, the good ones, of course! My favorite Christmas story (as you know) is, “A Christmas Carol” (which I’m performing for the last two times this year, tomorrow and Sunday at The […]

One woman’s quest for the sweet smelling Christmas candle.

Yesterday afternoon at a local bookstore, I stood and watched a woman bring every candle on the display table individually up to her nose, take a deep inhale and, each time, shake her head in disapproval. “Those are pretty candles,” I said, passing by on the other side.  “Not finding anything good?” “They look pretty,” […]
