THE GREAT DEPRESSION CHRISTMAS TIME and THE GREEN BOWL (ISSUE 312)

Not too many around who remember Christmas holidays during the Great Depression of the 1930s. During those years I lived on a farm on the red clay hills of northeast Georgia.

In those days, many had large families and families seemed to branch out when they married and started families of their own, acquiring adjoining farmland. And so it was with my parents. They were 18years old when they married, and moved onto a farm adjoining my grandparents. Plus other family members, aunts, uncles and cousins, lived on connecting farmland.

GOBBLE GOBBLE, HO-HO & HO-HUM, DOODLEY SQUAT & FAMILY FUN – PRINCE WILLIAM (ISSUE 311)

Another Thanksgiving Day Came and Went

“Over the hills and through the woods, to grandmother’s house we go.” That’s what we used to sing, growing up on a farm in northeast Georgia during the depression years. Major holidays meant getting together with a large family gathering at grandparents’ country home, particularly on Thanksgiving Day.

A large harvest table would be laden with farm-fresh country dishes, cakes, pies, casseroles, vegetables, turkey and ham. Back then, moms and grandmoms were stay-at-home and spent days before preparing the feast. The food was wonderful, but the gathering of family, and conversation and playtime was part of the joy of the holiday.

PALIN and PRESS, OBAMA and OPPOSITION, THE PEOPLE and the PROBLEM (ISSUE 310)

Third in Series About Palin and Problems

In my second article in this series I outlined how Number One, political government is a con-game; Number Two, it’s a thief which takes that which does not belong to the taker; Number Three, it expands its power base from the energy of those dependent upon it and those in opposition to it. Fourth, it has nothing to begin with and produces nothing.

Just a few minutes ago, I heard Senator Mitch McConnell state that Congress was “hell-bent” on ignoring the wishes of the American people. This out of the mouth of one of its members.

PALIN AND PRESS – OBAMA AND OPPOSITION – THE PEOPLE AND THE PROBLEM (ISSUE 309)

Second in series on Sarah Palin and problems we face.

There’s such an exposé in many sources of news lately about the problems facing all of us individually and as a nation, that everyone should be well-informed relative to the actuality of happenings.

Sara Palin hit the trail this week on her book signing tour. President Obama made his trip to countries in the Far East, labeling himself the “Pacific President.” Attorney General Holder appeared before congress to justify his arrangements to try perpetrators of the 9/11 attack in New York near the site of Twin Towers destruction. The Senate leader, Harry Reid, pushed through 60 votes to start the debate on the health bill. News of unemployment going up and retail sales going down. Texas Fort Hood Hoodlem has a hearing in his hospital room. Citizens march on Washington in protest over so-called Health Bill.
