Over the years I have always tried to get a group family shot at gatherings. This one is funny because the only one who is paying attention to me standing on a folding chair in front of them to get a good angle is my own son, Ronan. That's funny.

There are at least 2 spots in town where this is done and I think it is something so charming that brings the past to the future. Instead of finding a frozen pond that may be pitted with tree stumps and branches, this is a nice, flat and clean spot with pretty smooth skating when it's solid.
Typically by now the little ones with their pom-pom hats, middle-school kids with their hockey nets and high school kids in their blue jeans would be sharing this frozen space.

Chicken soup, of course.
Watch these movies. They never cease to charm.
Barbra Streisand is such an amazing actress!!! In 1969, Funny Girl was her first movie and she won Best Actress that year. The costumes in the theatrical numbers are awesome. And back then they were all made in the USA. I'm just saying.
Toward the end of the movie she wears her hair short, but longer on one side. Almost a contemporary look today. I had not seen the movie in years and well, here comes a cliche...they don't make them like that anymore.
Buy Kleenex "cool" tissues in the blue box.
Over the past 4 days I have had cup after cup after cup of herbal tea and gone through about 200 tissues. The new Kleenex brand "cool" tissues are fabulous and true to their name. No chafing!

Perfect food for New Year's Day when all of us were tired for one reason or another. Coconut shrimp, root beer float, onion rings, chicken fingers, salsa burger...perfect.
