Today is December 7th, Pearl Harbor Day, a day of sadness for all of those soldiers and sailors who lost their lives on that day. Just pray their families gained closure over the loss of their loved ones.

Well the tree is decorated and the stockings are up and our dog Bella is not impressed with any of it.

Thanks to the Vevay Media Group and staff for the Christmas gift.

I may have more news before Christmas. Just wanted to let you know the coffee pot is still on.

Have a great week.
