        It was a little puzzling toward the end when the one Ukrainian official said they notified Treasury Secretary Mnuchin about the $13 billion (if I remember correctly) which was owed to them and Mnuchin said we would not be paying it. Why should the American taxpayer have to pay the amount twice simply because American crooks and their cronies embezzled it? Get the money by suing the crooks.

    Mornin’ all. Back up to 60* on wakeup. Sun is out shining bright. Hope everybody has a nice day. My friend and I are going out for lunch. It used to be that we would go to a movie, shop some, and then go eat. Now, it appears that the theater chain has gone out of. business and shopping isn’t much fun anymore.

    They are talking on FOX and FRIENDS about that young girl who got kicked out of college because of her saying that black word forbidden to white people when she was 15. I decided this morning that that stupid, hateful, young man who saved the video to put on the Internet now and try to ruin her life, has had a crush on her all these years and she didn’t give him the time of day. I hope people state that on the Internet about him.

    This is a group of ladies in England, filmed in the 1970’s, talking about their Christmas celebrations when they were children. These ladies are about the age of my mother or a few years older. I remember my mom telling me what she would get for Christmas. Mostly it was an orange in her stocking and some candy. One year she got a doll and that was a big deal! She also remembered riding in the cutter behind the horses to church on Christmas Eve. She was born in 1906.

      What my mother wrote to my daughter when she was six or seven:

      Dear –
      I have enjoyed a good number of Christmases in my sixty-seven years. When I was your age, Christmas was hanging up my stocking by the bed and finding gifts the next morning; going down the stairs and seeing a beautiful tree in our living room. Later on we all climbed in our big sleigh and covered up with a robe and went to Grandma and Grandpa Ross’ house for Christmas dinner; the bells on the horses rang out in rhythm with their stride as we rode along. The wind blew the snow and it swirled around our heads. We went to church and heard the Christmas carols and had candy from the big tree.

      I think that you know more about the real meaning of Christmas than I did at your age because you know that it is Jesus’ birthday.

      We read in the bible about men who spoke of God. They were called prophets and one of these men told about Jesus being born in Bethlehem long before it happened. The prophet was called Isaiah and in the book of Isaiah 7:14 we read – Therefore the lord himself shall give you a sign; behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son and shall call his name Immanuel. Immanuel means God with us.

      In the book of Luke is found the beautiful story of Jesus’ birth. It tells of how the angels appeared to some shepherds who were watching their sheep at night. I can picture in my mind the deep blue night sky, and the stars sparkling like a million diamonds; the white blur of the sheep huddled together; the half asleep shepherds, their cloaks wrapped tightly about them; all was quiet and still when out of the night came the brightness of the angels, shining like the stars they came, that choir of choirs, dazzling and frightening the shepherds. One of the angels came near and spoke with gentle kindness; do not be afraid, he said, we are here to tell you that Jesus was born tonight in Bethlehem. He is Christ the Lord, come to earth; go and see him for you will find him in a manger bed, wrapped in swaddling clothes. And then the choir of angels began to sing, praising God and saying Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. The shepherds went in a hurry and when they found the baby Jesus, they kneeled down and worshipped him. Then they went out and told everyone about Jesus. I like that, don’t you?

      In the book of Matthew, they tell us about the wise men; they were kings, you know. They followed a star in the East and it moved and it led them to Jesus. Joseph and Mary had moved to a house and when the wise men saw Jesus they kneeled down and worshipped him. They brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrhh.

      Remember John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. That is the reason why Jesus came down to earth. He wanted to save us from sin and now we must receive him as the shepherds did and the wise men did; they knew who he was because they worshipped Him as soon as they saw Him. They went out and told others also, and that is a lesson for us to learn – caring enough to tell others. God planned all of this because He loved us and wanted to make a way for us to be with Him always. At Christmastime, we remember God’s great love. So have a joyous, wonderful Christmas and don’t forget to thank God for sending His son. Love and kisses, Gram

    Do you like to do jigsaw puzzles? I do, but don’t really have room to keep them out. I use this website. It is much easier, of course, because you know for sure when you have put a piece where it belongs. You can also alter the number of pieces in a puzzle to suit your skill level.
