    I resolve again to make gifts for my loved ones. Candy, cookies, jams, nice foods or crafts. Real, organic grenadine syrup is first on the list because of the nice pomegranate harvest.

    Got that Steely Dan earworm I always get when the subject comes into mind this time of year. So for anybody else, it better to get get through it.

      for a couple of relatives. In our house, Christmas is mostly secular and for the kids. We tell other adults that unless they really want to, that they don't need to get anyone in the family anything.

      All we want from our friends is friendship.

      Best Christmases are at home with family and friends, with popcorn cooked in an iron skillet and mulled wine and a good pair of binoculars for star watching wrapped in thick throws.
