#Townhall on Sunday, Dec 19th at 6pm PST - 9pm EST
This poem has been posted many times on the web and in other newsletters. May we never forget ALL of the military men and women who keep our countries safe so that we are able to enjoy every holiday season.
T'WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS,
HE LIVED ALL ALONE,
IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE OF
PLASTER AND STONE.
I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY
WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE,
AND TO SEE JUST WHO
IN THIS HOME DID LIVE.
I LOOKED ALL ABOUT,
A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE,
NO TINSEL, NO PRESENTS,
NOT EVEN A TREE.
NO STOCKING BY MANTLE,
JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND,
ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES
OF FAR DISTANT LANDS.
WITH MEDALS AND BADGES,
AWARDS OF ALL KINDS,
A SOBER THOUGHT
CAME THROUGH MY MIND.
FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT,
IT WAS DARK AND DREARY,
I FOUND THE HOME OF A SOLDIER,
ONCE I COULD SEE CLEARLY.
THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING,
CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR
IN THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME.
THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE,
THE ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER,
NOT HOW I PICTURED
A UNITED STATES SOLDIER.
WAS THIS THE HERO OF WHOM I'D JUST READ?
CURLED UP ON A PONCHO, THE FLOOR FOR A BED?
I REALIZED THE FAMILIES
THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT,
OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE SOLDIERS
WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT.
SOON ROUND THE WORLD,
THE CHILDREN WOULD PLAY,
AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE
A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY.
THEY ALL ENJOYED FREEDOM
EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR,
BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS,
LIKE THE ONE LYING HERE.
I COULDN'T HELP WONDER
HOW MANY LAY ALONE,
ON A COLD CHRISTMAS EVE
IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME.
THE VERY THOUGHT
BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE,
I DROPPED TO MY KNEES
AND STARTED TO CRY.
THE SOLDIER AWAKENED
AND I HEARD A ROUGH VOICE,
"SANTA DON'T CRY,
THIS LIFE IS MY CHOICE;
I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM,
I DON'T ASK FOR MORE,
MY LIFE IS MY GOD,
MY COUNTRY, MY CORPS."
THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER
AND SOON DRIFTED TO SLEEP,
I COULDN'T CONTROL IT,
I CONTINUED TO WEEP.
I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS,
SO SILENT AND STILL
AND WE BOTH SHIVERED
FROM THE COLD NIGHT'S CHILL.
I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE
ON THAT COLD, DARK, NIGHT,
THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOR
SO WILLING TO FIGHT.
THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER,
WITH A VOICE SOFT AND PURE,
WHISPERED, "CARRY ON SANTA,
IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY, ALL IS SECURE."
ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH, AND I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT.
"MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT."
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

An Author Review Deepak ChopraI decided to extend the scope of our Book Nook reviews and focus on a specific writer. This author has had so many books on the New York Time Best Sellers List that I could not easily get an accurate count.
Deepak Chopra was born and raised in New Delhi, India. The son of a well-known, well-respected cardiologist, he attended the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, a prestigious medical institute. After graduation, he traveled to the United States and completed residencies in internal medicine and endocrinology. He taught at Tufts University and Boston University Schools of Medicine, and then became Chief of Staff at the New England Memorial Hospital. He established a large personal practice. Despite a thriving medical practice and extensive professional success, Dr. Chopra began to question whether all acceptable medical techniques were providing his patients with the best possible health results, leading to his in-depth exploration of mind-body medicine. Dr. Chopra has not abandoned conventional medical training; quite the contrary. He has extended it to bring together the best of ancient wisdom and modern science.
Dr. Chopra established the American Association of Ayurvedic Medicine and in 1992 was appointed to the National Institutes of Health Ad Hoc Panel on Alternative Medicine. In 1993 he established the Center for Mind Body Medicine with Dr. David Simon. A recognized expert in the field of mind-body medicine, he travels widely now, giving lectures and seminars and appearing on radio and TV worldwide. I have personally attended several of his seminars and put his suggestions to work in my own life. This has led to my deep appreciation of the wisdom of Ayurvedic beliefs and practices.
Chopra’s book, Ageless Body, Timeless Mind (The Quantum Alternative to Growing Old), was a New York Times #1 Bestseller. It was one of the first of his books that I read. This book offers us powerful information and tools which will enable us to conquer the fear and the facts of aging. Dr. Chopra uses the means and the metaphor of quantum physics and mind/body medicine to present strategies for aging and overcoming the habits of millennia, (and he is not at all difficult to understand at any time). I believe that if you just read this book, you’ll go away with knowledge that will transform your thinking and make you feel better. His common sense, proven applications cannot harm you or hurt you. They can only make life better, more exciting, more interesting.
I have been utilizing Dr. Chopra’s suggestions and techniques (none of which are mysterious or difficult) for several years. I am more than pleased with the results. I look younger, feel younger and require way less sleep than previously. I have time to embrace life in a manner I suspected was available, just didn’t know for sure.
His fiction includes Lords of Light and, especially good, The Return of Merlin. This book recreates the fable of Camelot in modern times, with an underlying message that the wizard Merlin's eternal secrets can help us to transcend the problems and conflicts of our times.
This man is a prolific writer, scribes well and is easily understood; he is just the messenger, passing on to us the information of the ages, combined with modern medical proven knowledge. It all blends very well. I have had a few conversations with Dr. Chopra and he is a positive person, one anyone enjoys being around. If I have a guru, it is surely Dr. Deepak Chopra. I truly value and appreciate the events in life that have enabled me to absorb a small part of the information he presents. Other books include Perfect Health, Quantum Healing, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Perfect Weight, Boundless Energy and Overcoming Addition. There are many more. Read any of these, or any of his other books. There are many. You will be compelled to explore the other books he has written. I have a couple of sets of his taped lessons; I use them all the time. One is called Magical Mind, Magical Body. This set of tapes alone has enabled me to make positive changes in my life that have enhanced it greatly.
Google Deepak Chopra; I can’t imagine there is anyone on the planet who wouldn’t get benefit from something he has written or recorded.
Happy holidays to all - may your reading in 2005 be more rewarding and enjoyable than ever.
If you have a book you'd like reviewed, send an email with the subject "For Book Nook"; we're glad to have suggestions! If you'd like to review a book yourself, let us know. It's good to have fresh viewpoints!
Christmas PetsEvery year my husband asks me what I want for Christmas. And being a mother, and a reasonably practical woman, I usually asked for things I needed for the house, from new linen to toasters to washing machines. Last year I decided that since I was about to retire from the workforce, and I had done my practical role for 27 years, I should ask for something for ME! So, I asked for a PUPPY! Needless to say I got the "LOOK"! Not because I had asked for a puppy, but because when I owned my pet store, I discouraged customers from purchasing a "pet" as a Christmas gift.
My beliefs still hold true however, and I do not recommend puppies or kittens as holiday gifts. First off, they are dang hard to wrap! When I had the pet store, I would hear people proclaim "Oh he is SO cute! Wouldn't mother like a puppy to keep her company?" While I was sure that mother might like a pet to fill her lonely days, I would give the following advice, with the following reasons.....
The "holiday season" is a stressful time for many, with travelling, and/or company coming to visit. A new pet in the family is just added stress at this time. Chances are a new kitty or puppy is not yet trained. Young animals are like children...they are full of energy, curious, and in dire need of affection. One of two things can happen over the busy season. Either the new pet will be mauled by everyone who comes to visit, or he/she will be constantly "under foot", and banished to a kennel cage or basement. Neither situation is good for the well-being of the pet.
Another concern of mine for the new kitten or puppy are the decorations. Christmas tree ornaments, tinsel, and ribbons and bows on gifts under the tree are just to hard for your newest family member to resist! These bright, shiney playthings can be dangerous if ingested. I have seen what tinsel can do to a kitten's intestines. And cuts to puppies and family members from broken ornaments can be painful for all involved.
So rather then buy a puppy or kitten for mother, or the children, try this instead. Order the pet, place a deposit, and make arrangements to pick up your new pet after things calm down. Or you could buy a gift certificate from your local pet store so the new pet can be purchased by the recipient of the gift.
Now you may want to have something under the tree. Purchase pet supplies. Every new pet will need toys, dishes, leash and collar, and of course treats and pet food. Books on the care of the new pet are another good gift idea. This will help out the new pet owner, as well as build excitement in anticipation for the homecoming!
This year my one grand daughter wants a gecko, and she certainly will not get it from me. Nana and Poppa will buy her lizard supplies! And as for my puppy? I did get a Pug puppy for Christmas last year. I went to visit the breeder with cash in hand, picked out the one I wanted from the litter, and paid a deposit. I made arrangements for pick-up on Jan. 1. While I admit it was hard for me to wait, knowing my little bundle of joy was being enjoyed by another family, it turned out for the best for all concerned. I got through Christmas with my family, closed my store up and set things up here for my new baby. DebilDawg and I are constant companions. He doesn't do laundry, and can't make toast, but he has turned out to be the BEST Christmas gift my husband has given me in years.
I can think of only one other gift I enjoy more, and that is time with my family!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS from #Momma^s_House!

For folks who want to track the items they've shipped out, here's a EASY site to do that. Just click Track Any Package at the bottom of the page, and give the tracking number...
Here's the info they give about what companies they have tracking abilities for:
Track It! with iShip, Inc. provides real time status of a package shipped with Airborne, DHL, FedEx, or United Parcel Service. In the near future, iShip, Inc. will expand the base of carriers for Track It!
Carriers and manifest systems such as iShip, Inc. use tracking numbers to identify and trace packages as they move through the carrier's systems to their destinations. The shipper or the recipient uses this number to track, locate, and verify delivery of the package.
To track a package, type the carrier or iShip, Inc. tracking number in the Enter tracking number box, and then click the Submit button. Track It! will display the package's current status. If the package has been delivered, Track It! will report who signed for the package, its destination, and time of delivery.
If your package has not yet been delivered, Track It! can send an e-mail notification to you when the package is delivered. Type up to three e-mail addresses, and, optionally, a short e-mail message. Then click Submit. When the carrier delivers the package, iShip, Inc. will send an e-mail with a link to the most up-to-date package status.
Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Ad-Aware Spyware Remover Tips - contributed by Amazing
For those who use ad-aware for spyware protection and if you are using ad-aware 6.0, there is a new version out. You can check it out at lavasoft The new version is ad-aware SE.
If/when you get it I have found the best thing to do is uninstall the ad-aware 6.0 by going to add/remove programs and remove it from there.
Once you have done that then check in your program files to see if there is a folder there called Lavasoft. If there is then delete whatever is left in that folder.
After you have done that THEN install the new ad-aware SE

Here we are halfway between the time you fry your turkey and the time the credit card people cook your goose!
As usual, our super whiz-bang staff have been demonstrating their expertise and skill. In public. With their real names. For which examples see following we do show:
* Amazing got a free turkey today...only cost me $200 to get it
<Amazing> i thought so
The above explains a lot of Canadian things.. of course other things it doesn't....
*** Joins: Amazing (amaze@S01060007e97dde82.vs.shawcable.net)
<LarryC> good morning mazie
<Amazing> morning Larry :)

She *HOPES* not?? Tch tch. least you could do is put the bodies on a ice floe and send them out to sea. But nooo... use the front yard.
Of course, OTHER members of our staff aren't exactly whizzing along on all cylinders. You know how we provide a global notice to folks when we set up a new channel? Seems that some of us get a bit TOO enthusiastic with that idea...

For all the Moms and Grandma's out there that get overwhelmed at Christmas.
(P.S. make sure you read the P.S.)
I've been a good mom all year. I've fed, cleaned, and cuddled my two children on demand, visited the doctor's office more than my doctor, sold sixty-two cases of candy bars to raise money to plant a shade tree on the school playground and figured out how to attach nine patches onto my daughter's girl scout sash with staples and a glue gun.
I was hoping you could spread my list out over several Christmases, since I had to write this letter with my son's red crayon, on the back of a receipt in the laundry room between cycles, and who knows when I'll find any more free time in the next 18 years.
Here are my Christmas wishes:
I'd like a pair of legs that don't ache after a day of chasing kids (in any color, except purple, which I already have) and arms that don't flap in the breeze, but are strong enough to carry a screaming toddler out of the candy aisle in the grocery store.
I'd also like a waist, since I lost mine somewhere in the seventh month of my last pregnancy. If you're hauling big ticket items this year I'd like a car with fingerprint resistant windows and a radio that only plays adult music; a television that doesn't broadcast any programs containing talking animals; and a refrigerator with a secret compartment behind the crisper where I can hide to talk on the phone.
On the practical side, I could use a talking daughter doll that says, "Yes, Mummy" to boost my parental confidence, along with one potty-trained toddler, two kids who don't fight, and three pairs of jeans that will zip all the way up without the use of power tools.
I could also use a recording of Tibetan monks chanting, "Don't eat in the living room" and "Take your hands off your brother," because my voice seems to be just out of my children's hearing range and can only be heard by the dog.
And please don't forget the Play-Doh Travel Pack, the hottest stocking stuffer this year for mothers of pre-schoolers. It comes in three fluorescent colors and is guaranteed to crumble on any carpet making the In-laws' house seem just like mine.
If it's too late to find any of these products, I'd settle for enough time to brush my teeth and comb my hair in the same morning, or the luxury of eating food warmer than room temperature without it being served in a Styrofoam container.
If you don't mind I could also use a few Christmas miracles to brighten the holiday season. Would it be too much trouble to declare ketchup a vegetable? It will clear my conscience immensely.
It would be helpful if you could coerce my children to help around the house without demanding payment as if they were the bosses of an organized crime family; or if my toddler didn't look so cute sneaking downstairs to eat contraband ice cream in his pyjamas at midnight.
Well, Santa, the buzzer on the dryer is ringing and my son saw my feet under the laundry room door. I think he wants his crayon back. Have a safe trip and remember to leave your wet boots by the chimney and come in and dry off by the fire so you don't catch cold. Help yourself to cookies on the table, but don't eat too many or leave crumbs on the carpet.
Yours Always, MOM.
P.S. One more thing...you can cancel all my requests if you can keep my children young enough to believe in you.
LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE!
Thanks to ItsyDad for these!
CHRISTMAS SHOPPING FOR MEN
Rule #1 When in doubt, buy him a cordless drill. It does not matter if he already has one. I have a friend who owns 17 and he has yet to complain. As a man, you can never have too many cordless drills. No one knows why.
Rule #2 If you cannot afford a cordless drill, buy him anything with the word ratchet or socket in it. Men love saying those two words.
"Hey, George, can I borrow your ratchet?"
"Okay. By the way, are you through with my 3/8" socket yet?" Again, no one knows why.
Rule #3 If you are really, really broke, buy him anything for his car. A 99-cent ice scraper, a small bottle of de-icer or something to hang from his rear view mirror. Men love gifts for their cars. No one knows why.
Rule #4 Do not buy men socks. Do not buy men ties. And never buy men bathrobes. (I was told that if men were supposed to wear bathrobes, jockey shorts would not have been invented.)
Rule #5 You can buy men new remote controls to replace the ones they have worn out. If you have a lot of money, buy the man on your list a big screen TV with the little picture in the corner. Watch him go wild as he flips and flips and flips. Forget the program, your entertainment will be watching him have fun!
Rule #6 Do not buy any man industrial-sized canisters of after shave or deodorant. I'm told they do not stink - they are earthy.
Rule #7 Buy men label makers. (Almost as good as a cordless drill.) Within a couple of weeks, there will be labels absolutely everywhere. "Socks. Shorts.Cups. Saucers. Door. Lock. Sink." You get the idea. No one knows why.
Rule #8 Never buy a man anything and then tell him he should read the instructions because the box says "some assembly required". It will ruin his special day. He will always have parts left over.
Rule #9 Good places to shop for men include: Northwest Iron Works, Parr Lumber, Home Depot, John Deere, Valley RV Center and Les Schwab Tire. (NAPA auto parts and Sear's Clearance Centers are also excellent men's stores. It doesn't matter if he doesn't know what it is. "From NAPA Auto, eh? Must be something I need. Hey! Isn't this a starter for a '68 Ford Fairlane? Wow! Thanks."
Rule #10 Men enjoy danger. That's why they never cook - but they will barbecue. Get him a monster barbecue with a 100 pound propane tank. Tell him the gas line leaks.
"Oh the thrill! The challenge! Who wants a hamburger?"
Rule #11 Tickets to a NY Giants game are a smart gift. However, he will not appreciate tickets to "A Retrospective of 19th Century Quilts." Everyone knows why.
Rule #12 Men love chain saws. Never, ever, buy a man you love a chain saw. If you don't know why, refer to Rule #7. (Remember what happens when he gets a label maker?)
Rule #13 It's hard to beat a really good wheelbarrow or an aluminum extension ladder. Never buy a real man a stepladder. It must be an extension ladder. No one knows why.
Rule #14 Rope. Men love rope. It takes us back to our cowboy origins, or at least the Boy Scouts. Nothing says "I love you" like a hundred feet of 3/8" manila rope. No one knows why.
Wisdom From Grandpa.....
Holiday Eating Tips:
Thanks to DivaQueen for this one!
1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls.
2. Drink as much eggnog as you can, and quickly. Like fine single-malt scotch, it's rare. In fact, it's even rarer than single-malt scotch. You can't find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an eggnog-alcoholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it. Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!
3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.
4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission.
5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Christmas party is to eat other people's food for free, lots of it. Hello?
6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Year's. You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.
7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them again.
8. Same for pies. Apple. Pumpkin. Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or, if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? Labor Day?
9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all cost. I mean, have some standards.
10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention.
Reread tips; start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner. Remember this motto to live by:
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
Hope the season brings you lots of Joy and Happiness
once again to those who sent in
articles for the newsletter. Please encourage your channel owners
and other guests to send in their important dates for the month,
channel chatter, and general noteworthy news! It really gives our
network a stronger sense of continuity when we can share these events
with those outside the channels we normally visit. One of the
things I have always cherished about our network is the way channels
support and visit and encourage other channels rather than stooping to
the pettiness of competition and exclusion and such. That's just
another testament to the character of our community! If you are
as busy as I am, you don't always have the time to get out and visit
other channels. Our Sunday evening #Townhall meetings are an
excellent opportunity to come and meet other folks that we would not
normally chat with or get to know. Come join us for these
meetings which are often informative and always fun. We usually
have refreshments, too! But you all know how that goes with
Itsy around.... not even the platters are left by the time everyone
It may come streaming in on a ray of sunshine,Farewell, Kathie and have the wonderful journey you so richly deserve.
Your special friends in Trivia_Dreams wish you eternal joy.
