Holiday Greetings

A Merry Christmas to those celebrating the holiday today.

As for us, this sums up our usual holiday celebration. However, this year, living out in the back of beyond, I don't think we'll find a Chinese restaurant open. At least not without driving 35 miles or more, and I don't think we're going to do that. So, it'll be Netflix, and dinner is likely to be the rest of the crock pot ribs I made yesterday.

And if you haven't done so, please take a minute to go over to Kitchen Daily -- they've published an article I wrote about creating new holiday traditions. (And if you'd click the "like" button at the bottom of that post, I'd be ecstatic!)

Tomorrow, Backlist Ebooks is having a sale--25% off selected titles. If you got an e-reader for Christmas (or already have one), go stock up on some great books.

And scroll down for Patricia Stoltey's virtual trip to Cinque Terre.

Hi Terry,

I enjoyed your essay on holiday traditions - but no way for me to say so without joining Facebook. And no way will I join Facebook. So, I am telling you here. It was very cute. Thank you.

You reminded me of the time I was at the home of a retired rabbi and his wife and the group of us made matzos. It was a tradition for them and a whole new experience for me who only know from boxes. I took their tradition home with me 48 years ago and it's still warm inside my heart.

Elena - I don't think you have to join facebook, because I know my brother left a comment, and he's not a FB member. I think the LIKE button will ask for a FB account, but I think you can avoid that hoop as well. But I'm glad you enjoyed the article.
