This was posted Sunday, September 8, 2013 7:58 a.m. EDT

I just wanted to take out time today to wish every one a very Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season yet to come. I also want to know how Labor Day has come and gone so fast.

This weekend I begin my Thanksgiving preparations I am going though the pantry and checking for the following items:

Salt & Pepper
Poultry Seasoning

Wax Paper
Parchment Paper
Aluminum Foil
Saran Wrap
Corn Oil
Olive Oil
Vegetable Oil
Peanut Oil

I will come back each week and update my blog so you can start right now and have a stress free Thanksgiving.

I have had friends and relatives staying with me the past three weeks. The last one went home yesterday. I made a big pot of coffee to go with my Grandma's coffee cake and taking it easy today and reading the Sunday newspaper.

Posted 08-30-2013 at 03:47 PM by bigbearfla58
Updated 02-22-2014 at 02:23 PM by bigbearfla58 (Updates for Thanksgiving 2014)

Friday August 30, 2013 5:44 p.m. I just wanted to take out time today to wish everyone a very Happy Labor Day Weekend and holiday season yet to come.

I also have one new to me holiday treat to share with all of you.

1. My Grandma's Coffee Cake

I am sure some of you know of My Grandma's from QVC or your local markets. I just found this cake and its the best. Log onto MY Grandmas and find a store in your hometown.

2. We Take The Cake Key Lime Bundt Cake

This cake was featured as one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2003.

3. The Christmas Palace has Christmas every day of the year I love this store.

I love living here in South FL as all three of these places are in my back yard.

This is Labor Day Weekend 2014 now it's time to start my Thanksgiving preparations. This weekend I will be checking out the pantry and re-seasoning my cast iron skillet getting it ready for Thanksgiving.

My Part in the War on Christmas

Posted 07-17-2013 at 05:47 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

I had an experience in college that long ago tainted my belief in editors and journalism in general.

I was assigned to write a piece about a student rally being held on campus in opposition to Affirmative Action. (This was California in the early 1980s).

The assignment wasn't my cup of tea but it involved my grade so I did what I had to do, carefully following instructions that I was given.

To be honest, my heart wasn't in the article because I had no real interest in writing news. I wanted to do well in the class, yes. But I've always been more of a writer who composes from the gut -- I write from belief, conviction and emotion. That's just who I am.

I had another problem with the assignment: a horrible personal bias.

To make a long story short my acceptance into the California college system at the time was derailed after years of planning, positioning and saving through high school simply because I was a native Californian...
