Crown, I did look out my window last night and the neighbors across the field of the school I live in front of still have their Christmas lights on!

As most of you know, I lived in Maryland for the first 42 years of my life. As of this past December 27, I have been in Texas for 7 years. When I first came here I would have a recurring dream that i was back in Maryland, but at the same time I felt like I needed to be back here in Texas with my sweety. Well they stopped for a very long time, until this morning that is. Just before waking up I had that dream again, I was even working at my old job I had in Maryland. Then, in the dream, I woke up one morning and suddenly had a panic attack that I made a big mistake and I had to get back to Texas and with my wife, this one felt so real that I woke up and when I saw I was still here with my wonderful wife, a huge sense of relief came over me. I just whispered to myself, thank God! I can't imagine why I would have that dream now after all this time, just weird!

Oh indeed I do, Coach, especially since my 2nd favorite team, the Packers, made it into the playoffs.
And I feel the same "Christmas continuation" way about the college bowl games (even though I think there's WAY too many and can't stand the "corporate renaming" that's gone on over the years. Ruins the sense of continuity for me.)

Good Morning, Friends.

Straight to the count:
Days to the Season: 312
Days to Christmas Day: 354
Only 12 days away from the 300-day Season window, Guys.

We again stand at 30 here in Raleigh under calm and sunny skies just as we did yesterday at this time.
Our high is predicted to be 47 after a nice 54 yesterday.
By Friday, they show a 20 percent chance of snow with a high in the 30's.
(That will feel more seasonal but hey! Christmas has passed and I'm ready for warm weather again!)

Well, Carl is ready at the 'Pines for our first open house of 2011.
The fired twinkies turned out especially well this time so hop over and have a few, washed down with sweet southern tea, of course.
Holiday? Will we see you there?

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Everyone!

I cant believe how quickly Christmas 2010 came and went. Mentally I still feel like I am preparing for it.
I didnt get to look through enough cook books, or watch enough movies!
2011 cant come soon enough!

Good morning everyone.... Got a busy day today ... work and then a big grocery shopping trip tonight. Plus tonight I am going to bake a cake for my mom's b-day tomorrow. Still have to wrap her b-day gifts. Trees still up, will take them down this weekend and then bring out the rest of my snowmen stuff.

Have a great day all!

Tonight is Twelfth Night ... end of the twelve days of Christmas. Boo ...

We're waiting to see if we're supposed to have a little snow or a big snowstorm Saturday.

I wish I could, but being a Bengals fan, with only 2 winning seasons in 20 years, I find being a football fan has passed me by, especially when the Patriots are in. You could not find a Pats fan around my area 20 years ago, and now everybody is one.

Good morning,

Today is my 1 year anniversary with this great site. It has been such a great year celebrating a little bit of Christmas everyday with the best people anywhere. I have made some great friends through this site, and I have been more involved than I ever thought I would be with blogs, and groups. I really enjoy coming here and look forward to celebrating each day with all of you.

Thank you everyone!
