    Wednesday afternoon I watched a second ANTIQUES ROADSHOW from Birmingham, Alabama. That episode included a woman who brought in a Rolex Military Chronograph with a Stainless Steel Case/Black Dial. It turned out to be worth $40-50,000 at auction.

    Perhaps a smidgen of the value was because it had been owned by the man called “The Cooler King” in THE GREAT ESCAPE starring Steve McQueen. His name was William Ash.

    Sentient, around the corner, found! Another plausible Arkancid death. This surgeon who worked in Haiti complained to Hillary about the work the Clinton Foundation did there. After that, he went to the media because nothing was done about it. Found by his daughter, in his bathtub with a knife sticking out of his chest, and the examiner listed his death as suicide:

    With Hillary and the Clinton Foundation, the hits just keep on coming!

    Morning Stella, beautiful people,
    Great pic of the big rig and lights. Catching on slowly. Vehicles AND Christmas lights! Beautiful and thank you for always delivering.
    I for one am glad that our President Trump has his finger on the big red buttons, ‘cuz if I did I would nuke the whole lot of them! Did I mention I want a flame thrower for Christmas? And a six pack of kamikazes!

    And as I’ve said before, glad calmer heads are in control.
    Hope all of your days are filled with joy and awe this Christmas season. Good to see you Col., and all of you Stellar types here daily.

    I’m making boiled cider (also called apple molasses). It’s easy. Boil cider in a dutch oven, then reduce heat and let it cook and reduce for four or five hours. They say a half gallon makes about a cup. Think of all the yummy things you can use this for. I’ve seen it as an ingredient in apple pie. Maybe on top of pancakes or oatmeal?

  13. Christmas insight from my husband, Michael:

    “When Jesus was born, King Herod killed all the kids that were under two years old. Pilot, the authority who sentenced Jesus to his death asked “what is truth?” Things have not changed much today. There are those who are constantly trying to kill the truth like Herod, for fear what it might bring, or like Pilot- wondering if it exists at all. Those who roll like Herod and Pilot are simply confused, and or scared. One thing is for sure, there is a truth that can be known, and, its author is very much alive! The real Christmas story is there for the taking, just as it was 2000 years ago. Set in place so that we can experience freedom, peace, and love. May the truth set you free!!”

    Blessings to All!

      I’ll take it a step further than she did: even if the accusations were true, it’s not nice to push someone to the point of taking their own life. That really is just not nice although it what the left does.

      There’s a mindlessness that goes on when lawlessness increases – I guess because people get so frustrated. Just today or yesterday next door, one of the nice lady commenters said she wanted to be part of the team that would execute by shooting some of the people who are in deep trouble now.

      That’s not nice either. Not at all. Being right doesn’t make it ok to be really ugly.

    While Americans are taking his money–right and left–the Hungarians are staying true to themselves. Having been born in Hungary and did his initial turn as a traitor there, guess he wants to ruin the nation…just because!

    lilbirdee12โ€™s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
